    2021 Hyundai Alcazar: interiors and features

    Hyundai has also officially revealed the interiors of the new Alcazar, giving us a clear look at the cabin layout. The main talking point on the inside is the added row of seats, as there will be both, a 6- seat configuration with captain’s seats in the second row (pictured above) as well as a 7-seat layout with a bench-style seating in the second row. Additionally, the middle row gets a sliding function that can be adjusted to either free up more space for the second or third row passengers. Speaking of the third row, the seats get a reclining function and they also fold down completely flat to provide better boot space. The captain's seats version also gets a unique floor-mounted central armrest with cupholders and extra storage space. This though negates a walk-through possibility to the third row, with access only via the second row seat's one-touch tumble mechanism.

    The cabin is finished in a black and ‘Cognac’ brown dual-tone colour scheme that can be seen on the seats, door-cards and the dashboard. Hyundai has also provided some neat fold-out tables with cup-holder, behind the front seats.

    On the equipment front, the Alcazar will come very well kitted, the top-spec trims will come with two 10.25-inch displays – one for the digital instrument cluster (segment first) and the other for the touchscreen infotainment system. Also on offer will be Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, Hyundai’s connected car tech, a 360-degree camera, an eight-speaker Bose sound system, 64-colour ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, an air purifier, ISOFIX seats mounts, wireless phone charging, automatic climate control.

    2021 Hyundai Alcazar: engine and gearbox

    Power for the three-row Alcazar will come from either petrol or diesel engines. The petrol engine is an updated and more powerful version of the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder unit seen in theElantraandTucsonthat now produces 159hp and 192Nm (7hp more). The diesel engine, on the other hand, is the same 1.5-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged unit from the Creta – producing 115hp and 250Nm – though it has been tuned differently.

    Both engines are available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Hyundai also claims that the Alcazar, in the petrol-manual configuration, can do the 0-100kph sprint in 9.5sec. Additionally, the carmaker also offers the Alcazar with multiple drive modes – Comfort, Eco and Sport – as well as multiple traction control modes – Sand, Snow and Mud.
