It has been stretched out going all the best way into the headlamp cluster and the end is totally totally different, and so is the styling. The one on the Alcazar is completed in darkish chrome, whereas Creta will get common chrome inserts. But these aren’t the one variations, there’s a complete lot of different issues as properly so let’s rapidly run you thru the remainder. The profile extends 200 mm longer than the Creta’s including a D-Pillar, 150 mm of it’s within the wheelbase. The stretched part has a properly sculpted hump going with its SUV seems, whereas within the Creta there’s a distinction end operating alongside the roofline and merging with the C-Pillar.
But on the rear, the Alcazar is considerably totally different. It’s easier with lesser contours and bigger glass space and I personally choose this rear finish over the Creta’s that appears busy. The styling too me, appears impressed by the Ford Endeavour and that is not a foul factor. Then, the Alcazar additionally sees addition of a operating footstep. The top-end trim will get these fashionable 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, whereas the bottom Prestige trim will get 17-inchers.

The lateral actions will not be evident on a regular basis however excessive velocity lane modifications and sharp bends, make you’re feeling it. But it doesn’t take away from the consolation issue an excessive amount of as a result of the journey high quality covers fairly aptly. It is superior to the Creta and I’ve to say that’s the USP on the Alcazar. In truth, it is there with its section rivals and sure it makes life straightforward for rear passengers as properly.
The Hyundai Creta on different hand is obtainable with three powertrains and a variety of transmission choices. First up, it is the 1.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that places out 113 bhp and 144 Nm of peak torque and is mated both to a six-speed handbook or a six-step CVT transmission. Then is similar 1.5-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that’s supplied in similar tune, belting out 113 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque and is mated to the identical six-speed handbook or torque convertor computerized transmission.

The Hyundai Creta does provide you with a sportier driving expertise, particularly once you evaluate to the Alcazar. If you need a automobile that is extra enjoyable to drive and you’re extra oriented in direction of that, you bought to select the Creta. None of the powertrains really feel much less on energy, however the 1.4 Turbo is the punchiest of the lot and the paddle shifts solely assist. The suspension arrange too is on the stiffer aspect and the steering geometry complement that sporty character with ample suggestions. If something, the steering may have been a wee bit extra responsive off the centre. Again, we fairly just like the suspension setup for the way it brings steadiness between journey high quality and dealing with. You do not typically really feel that thud, it is supple at low and average speeds and physique rolls are contained to fairly an extent.
Interior And Tech
Well! At first, you will not really feel how large this cabin is, however simply hop inside after Creta’s and you will get your head round that sizeable distinction between the 2. And we very like this- the six seater with second-row captain seats format. The seats are actually comfy and also you get a hard and fast central console that gives options like a wi-fi charger, cup holders and extra space for storing. Other options stay similar just like the sun-blinds, comfy cushions on the headrest air-con vents and rear charging factors amongst others.

Speaking of the third-row, getting out and in is little bit of a activity due to the slim door-well and it isn’t a really perfect place for adults for lengthy hours. You sit knees up and legroom is not nice both. So Yes! Even right here it is best fitted to youngsters or youngsters within the household, like different three-row SUVs. The boot house is a bit compromised with all seats up. Good sufficient just for a suitcase and a few dufflel luggage at greatest, however folding third-row seats offers you 146-litres extra boot house and so then it might probably gobble up greater than the Creta does.
Now the Hyundai Alcazar additionally has a premium positioning than the Creta and that displays fairly evidently in the best way each cabins are executed. Though design largely stays similar, the cognac brown dual-tone inside of the Alcazar comfortably supersedes the two-tone black and greige inside of the Creta’s. The piano black highlights and refined chrome touches go higher as properly with the Alcazar and total it positively feels extra upmarket of the 2.
Both SUVs are evenly matched when it comes to options and do not fall quick in any wat for his or her respective segments. The 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system supporting Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and the BlueLink related automobile tech is similar unit in each fashions and receives over-the-air (OTA) updates as properly. Top-end trims in each variants get options like 64 color ambient lighting, voice instructions, energy adjustment for the driving force seat, an eight-speaker Bose encompass sound system, entrance ventilated seats, electrical parking brake, air air purifier and a ten.25 instrument cluster with a number of shows amongst others. Now a variety of these options are normal throughout variants on the Alcazar, save for the entrance ventilated seats, electrical parking brake and air air purifier which the bottom handbook variant would not get, whereas the bottom variants of the Creta really feel skimmed off. Also, the digital instrument cluster within the Alcazar seems classier and each pods additionally double up as lane-changing displays once you activate aspect indicators, a security function Creta misses on.
Other than that, each fashions fare equally on security entrance as properly and get driver, passenger and aspect + curtain airbags together with a bunch of driver help options like digital stability management, car stability administration management and hill begin help amongst others.
Well lastly! It all boils all the way down to variants and pricing and it’s the most important differentiator, as the costs of the Creta 1.5 petrol just about tops at the place the Alcazar enters the market.

|Petrol||₹ ₹ 16.30 lakh – ₹ 20 lakh||₹ 10 lakh – ₹ 17.71 lakh|
