Hyundai Alcazar will be unveiled in April and it will go on sale around June this year in India targeting a host of seven-seater SUVs

Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has the Alcazar as its next big launch in the domestic market and it follows the introduction of the third generation i20 premium hatchback last year. The Alcazar will make its global premiere in early April before going on sale by the middle of this year.

The South Korean auto major will sell the seven-seater in multiple engine options and according to a recent report emerged on the internet, it will be equipped with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that can also be found under the bonnet of the Tucson and Elantra.

The powertrain produces a maximum power output of 150 bhp and 192 Nm of peak torque and is hooked with a six-speed manual as standard while a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission is offered as an option. It stands in contrary to the speculations that the Alcazar would use the 1.5-litre petrol engine employed in the five-seater Creta.
