The seven-seater SUV segment in India is getting democratized. One no longer needs to look at big cars like the Fortuner or Endeavour to fulfill the need for a big 7 seater. For people looking for more space along with better ground clearance, seven-seater SUVs are the way to go. The Hyundai Alcazar name signifies reliability and indulgence while drawing its inspiration from the royal lineage of castles and palaces, denoting grandeur, spaciousness and solidity. The Hyundai Creta is the highest selling Hyundai car in India and they are looking towards boosting its sales. And now the brand is planning to launch a new seven-seater SUV named the Alcazar pretty soon in India.

Safety has become a major car buying decision in India. People are more aware of safety ratings and other advanced safety features present with the cars. The new Hyundai Alcazar is expected to come with ADAS like the MG Gloster in India. Hyundai calls it SmartSense in the international market. The 2021 Hyundai Alcazar will come with SmartSense features like automatic emergency braking, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, driver attention warning, automatic emergency braking while reversing, and rear cross-traffic alert. Additionally, features like smart cruise control, highway driving assist and lane departure warning can also be expected on the three-row Hyundai Alcazar SUV.

Launch and Competition

Hyundai has officially revealed the car now so we expect the launch of Alcazar by the end of this year. Many new car launches are expected in this segment. The new 2021 Hyundai Alcazar will compete against Tata Safari, upcoming Mahindra XUV500, MG Hector Plus, Seltos based MPV and other new launches.  Like the other SUVs in the segment, third-row seat space will not be the best for two adult passengers.

  • Unlike the Hyundai “fluidic” sedans, which have a distinct signature and appeal ( externally), their SUVs seem to come from the same source (Creta, Venue, Santa Fe, Tucson) – the inverted jelly mould. But to be fair, almost all mfrs – including the domestic majors Tata and Mahindra with the Harrier & XUVs – have climbed this band-wagon. Recently just Mahindra and Maruti have offered genuine, contemporary alternatives. Mahindra with their BS6 Thar and Maruti with their 5-door Jimny (which by all accounts should be launched soon). Both are strikingly different (body-on-frame structures unlike the pandemic of monocoques proliferating everywhere), with 4WD as standard, great road presence and outstanding off-road credentials. Characteristics & credentials that used to set SUVs apart.
