Hyundai Alcazar 2 L Petrol Engine Manual Review - MYNEWCAR
FIRST DRIVE REVIEW : 7 Seater 2021 Hyundai Alcazar 2 Litre Petrol Engine Manual Transmission
The Alcazar is currently one of the most talked about cars in India right now and there is a lot of buzz surrounding this new SUV. We have had a brief taste of the Alcazar in the form of a prototype drive. Here then, is our first drive impression.
Firstly we drove a camouflaged car hence we could not see the final form but that said you can see the front-end having a Creta like headlamp but the grille is a bit different which was obviously covered with camouflage on our car. What you notice is that the car is bigger than the standard Creta plus looks more premium. You also notice the bigger 18-inch wheels. The design is not boxy and the car does not look like it is too long.
We are here to talk about the brief driving experience we had and here the Alcazar has impressed under the short time we drove it. We drove the car with a 2.0 petrol which makes 159hp and 192Nm. That makes it more powerful than the Tucson and the Elantra- cars with the same 2.0 engine. We drove the Alcazar with the manual 6-speed one while the petrol 2.0 would also have a 6-speed automatic torque converter.
Firstly the engine is quite refined and the manual gearbox is quite easy to use. The gearbox slots well and is like any other Hyundai there. What we also liked is the light steering plus despite the bigger wheels, the ride is not bad at all. In-fact the ride is comfortable and those tyres absorbed the bad patches that we drove on.
When you go flat-out and drive it hard you can see the performance and the build up of power that the 2.0 petrol has. There is enough torque and performance is well looked at. The 2.0 would be one of the more popular options we are sure. Out on the roads we tried hard cornering and the Alcazar responded well while the engine coped with the weight. It is not a turbo petrol but it is smoother and better suited. Hyundai claims that the petrol manual will do 0-100 km/h in under 10 seconds which is quick.
There are drive modes namely Eco, City and Sport which change the steering and throttle response. We expect the 2.0 petrol to be fairly efficient too. Looking at the usage of the Alcazar as a more family oriented SUV with comfort in mind, the 2.0 petrol fits in well and the SUV has impressed us after this drive.
