Hyundai Alcazar 1.5L turbo-petrol bookings open in India

The Alcazar 1.5 Turbo GDi is offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

The Hyundai Alcazar is now available with a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine. The SUV can be booked by paying a token amount of Rs 25,000.

The Alcazar 1.5 Turbo GDi comes with two transmission options: a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The engine produces 158 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 253 Nm @ 1,500-3,500 rpm. The claimed fuel efficiency of the turbo-petrol unit is 18 km/l (7DCT) and 17.5 km/l (6MT).

The Alcazar is also offered with a 1.5-litre diesel engine that puts out 114 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 250 Nm @ 1,500-2,750 rpm. However, the 2.0-litre petrol engine has been discontinued.

Hyundai rolled out the 2023 Alcazar with several updates earlier this month. The SUV gets 6 airbags, ESC, Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Hill-Start Assist Control and disc brakes all around. It also comes with an Idle Start & Go function, which uses an integrated starter generator (ISG) to improve fuel economy in heavy traffic.
