Hyundai expanded its SUV lineup in India with the Alcazar, a spacious and sophisticated 7-seater (with an optional 6-seater configuration) based on the popular Creta. The Alcazar targets those looking for more space, comfort, and premium features while maintaining Hyundai’s signature design language.
