Hyundai officially opened bookings for the Alcazar in India today. Bookings can be made at any Hyundai dealership across the country or at the company's Click to Buy portal for a token amount of INR 25,000. Along with the commencement of bookings, Hyundai finally revealed the interior of the Alcazar as well. The Hyundai Alcazar will boast of a more premium cabin than the Creta, thanks to more features and better-appointed seating and upholstery. Ahead of its launch later this month, here we have the first-ever images of the Alcazar's third row of seating.
Hyundai Alcazar - Seating and Interior
The Hyundai Alcazar will be available in both 6- and 7-seater configurations. You can access the third row by a simple one-touch tip and tumble seats (60:40 split). Although the third row of the Alcazar is wide enough to seat two adults, it must be said that legroom is a bit on the limited side. While it should be fine for adults on short journeys, it is better suited to children or small-sized adults. That said, the seats are otherwise comfortable and supportive and NVH levels are very well controlled even in the third row. The leather quality is also top-notch. Third-row passengers also have the convenience of dedicated AC vents with blower controls, cupholders and USB charging as well.
The interior of the Hyundai Alcazar gets a dual-tone brown and black finish for the dashboard and the upholstery, and it looks quite more premium than the Creta. Another major upgrade over the Creta is a new 10.25-inch fully digital instrument cluster with configurable displays. In its 6-seater variant, the Alcazar comes with captain chairs for the middle row with a unique fixed floor-mounted armrest with cupholders and extra storage space in the middle. In the 7-seater variant, it gets a bench seat in the middle row. The seats also have a sliding function to adjust space in the third row. The third row of seats gets its own reclining function and can also be folded flat for increased boot space. Here's a look at the features list on offer with the Alcazar.
