7-seater Hyundai Creta could be called Alcazar

Hyundai has trademarked the Alcazar name in India.

As per the document, the trademark was filed on April 13, 2020 and is proposed to be used for a sports utility vehicle. This has raised speculations on whether the upcoming 7-seat version of the Creta could be called Alcazar.

Test mules of the 7-seat Creta were spotted in South Korea earlier this year. The SUV is likely to get a different grille and tail lamps with C-shaped brake lights. The test car was also equipped with twin exhausts similar to that of the new 5-seater Creta.

The 7-seater Creta could be offered with same engine options as the 5-seat version. It is expected to compete with likes of the Mahindra XUV500 and the upcoming MG Hector Plus and Tata Gravitas.
