2021 Hyundai Alcazar Review : 9 Pros & 9 Cons

Hyundai Alcazar Pros

  • A 3-row family car that's well-built inside out
  • User-friendly interiors look really good (brown shade is awesome) and have quality parts
  • 2.0L NA petrol & 6-speed AT deliver a very smooth and refined driving experience
  • Economical 1.5L diesel is available in MT & AT variants. Offers good driveability
  • Comfortable ride quality with neutral road manners
  • Unladen ground clearance of 200 mm is perfect for Indian roads
  • The Alcazar's safety package includes 6 airbags, ESP, all-wheel disc brakes, auto-hold, TPMS etc.
  • Impressive kit (fully digital instruments, 360-degree camera, 2nd-row wireless charger, panoramic sunroof, paddle shifters, Bose sound system, cooled seats & loads more)
  • Hyundai's competent after-sales service & wide dealer network

Hyundai Alcazar Cons

  • Oddball love-it-or-hate-it face. We find the Alcazar's front design to be weird & overdone
  • 2nd-row legroom is mediocre (captain seat variant). Compromises have been made to accommodate the 3rd-row & boot
  • 3rd-row seat is best suited to kids only. Not really a place for adults
  • Rs. ~3 lakh OTR premium over the Creta on the higher variants is too much!
  • Nothing for enthusiasts here. The 2.0 AT is tuned very conservatively
  • Diesel’s 113 BHP & 250 Nm – although adequate – are the lowest in the segment
  • The Creta 1.4L DCT is a lot, lot more fun to drive
  • Competitors like the Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus & XUV500 offer way more spacious cabins
  • Some misses (no auto wipers, illuminated window buttons, full-size spare tyre on top trims etc.)
