Here, we have listed the top 10 features offered on Hyundai Alcazar, that are better than its rivals or not available on them
Hyundai Alcazar was launched in India just a few days ago, and it has already managed to generate a lot of buzz in our market. It is essentially a long-wheelbase, three-row version of the Creta, and it competes with Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus, and the soon-to-be-replaced XUV500.
The new Hyundai SUV comes loaded with a lot of features and equipment, some of which are segment-first or segment-best. Here, take a look a look at the top 10 features available on the Alcazar over the Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus.
1. Fully digital instrument cluster
Hyundai Alcazar gets a 10.25-inch multi-screen digital instrument console, which is the best in its segment. In comparison, Tata Safari gets a 7-inch MID with an analogue speedometer, while MG Hector Plus gets a 7-inch MID between two analogue dials.
2. Paddle shifters
All the automatic variants of Hyundai Alcazar get paddle shifters as standard, which makes the driving experience a little more fun and engaging. Driving modes and traction control modes are also available alongside it.

Hyundai Alcazar gets 360-degree camera as well, which makes monitoring the surroundings easy. Such a system is also available on MG Hector Plus, but not on Tata Safari.
4. Blindspot monitor
Blind view monitor essentially uses cameras mounted at the sides of the car to check surroundings when changing lanes. When a turn indicator is engaged, the camera on that side displays the feed into the infotainment screen, allowing drivers to be better aware of their surroundings.
