It will as well receive its own distinct design and styling as well to make it more unique than its younger sibling.
Concerning the variants, the SUV is still under testing and also, the details with respect to the variants aren’t disclosed yet. But since the Hyundai Alcazar is based on the five-seat Creta.
Then it is very possible that it could follow the same variant lineup consisting of the E, EX, S, SX, and the SX(O) as well.
Hyundai Alcazar will be provided to you in 2 engine options. One is the 2-litre petrol and the other is the 1.5-litre diesel. The petrol is being borrowed from Elantra and Tuscon. While the diesel has the same unit as the Verna and Creta.
Both the engines come with the option of manual and automatic transmissions. Also, the Hyundai Alcazar will sport 6-seat and 7-seat options.

- And a 113bhp/144Nm torque 15-litre NA petro engine having a 6-speed manual and CVT gearbox.
