Hyundai Motor India Limited introduced the Alcazar three-row SUV in June 2021 and it has been well received in the domestic market. The Alcazar, derived from Creta, competes against Tata Safari (derived from Harrier), MG Hector Plus (derived from Hector), and the all-new Mahindra XUV700 and is priced between Rs. 16.30 lakh and Rs. 20.15 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Creta is exported from Hyundai’s local facility in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu to several international markets and is popular in many Latin American markets. The South Korean auto major has now announced the launch of the Alcazar rebranded as the Creta Grand in Mexico and is priced at MP 455,000 (Rs. 16.80 lakh approximately) for the base GLS Premium variant.

The top-spec Limited AT costs MS 498,000 (Rs. 18.40 lakh approximately). Compared to the India-spec Hyundai Alcazar, the Creta Grand on sale in Mexico looks similar inside and out. The exterior boasts 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, dark chrome-accented front grille, chromed-out door handles, silver-painted roof rails, lowly positioned fog lamps on the front bumper, front and rear skid plates, and black finished pillars.
