The upcoming Hyundai Alcazar CNG has been spotted once more, and we believe it will be released in India soon.
CNG-powered cars have been steadily gaining popularity in the Indian market due to rising petrol and diesel prices. Hyundai India is reportedly planning to expand its CNG passenger car lineup in the near future, with the Alcazar SUV receiving a CNG powertrain option as well.
During a recent road test, a Hyundai Alcazar CNG was reportedly spotted. The vehicle is shown in the video below, which was posted by TRAKIN WHEELS. The Alcazar CNG’s technical specifications have yet to be revealed, but the SUV’s engine could be either a 2.0L naturally aspirated unit or a 1.4L turbocharged unit.
A CNG powertrain option for the Kia Carens is also expected, which would be a bi-fuel version of the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine. The same powerplant could also be used at Alcazar CNG. According to some reports, Hyundai could simply add a CNG kit to the Alcazar’s 2.0L petrol engine.

The Hyundai Alcazar is currently available with two engine options. The first is the 2.0-litre naturally aspirated inline-4 gasoline engine, which produces 159 PS and 191 Nm of maximum power and torque, respectively. The second is a 1.5-litre turbocharged inline-4 diesel engine that produces 115 PS and 250 Nm.
On both engines, a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque-converter automatic transmission are available. The Hyundai Alcazar currently sells well on a monthly basis, and the addition of a CNG powertrain is expected to help boost sales. CNG engines are currently only available in the Hyundai Aura and Grand i10 Nios.
The petrol version of the Hyundai Alcazar costs between Rs. 16.44 lakh and Rs. 20 lakh, while the diesel version costs between Rs. 16.85 lakh and Rs. 20.25 lakh. We anticipate that the upcoming CNG version will be limited to a few trim levels and will be more expensive than comparable petrol and diesel models.
