    Any chances of getting an Hyundai Santro Sportz AMT review, the facelift version and possibly compare it with the Tata Tiago XZA variant?

    7 seats doesn't suit everyone so hyundai should've considered bringing the Tucson as and upgrade over creta.

    Alcazar might eat into its own sibling Creata Sales. It would be foolish to Compare it to Tata Safari which is much bigger in Overall dimension & power. Hyundai's of late have been pricing their vehicle higher than competition. Their After-Sales Services & Spares also have become expensive than before. Apart from feature list it lacks in good build quality. Awaiting for Germans Tiagun & Kushaq with strong build quality to create some ripples in Hyundai & Kia Sales nos. if the price it well against Creata & Seltos 1.5 Diesal & 1.4 Petrol engines.

    It was Renault that created the compact SUV segment with Duster in 2012 and not Hyundai I believe.

    If Tarun sir sees this or conveyed - one request is that please improve the experience of 2nd row in Creta. Like thigh support and better rear ac and more width if possible. There is scope for all these three points.

    How will it compare with upcoming xuv 700 and the already existing safari.... Is it just a streached creta

  • TheYbajaj

    Not even a fan of Hyundais, but the Alcazar will monopolize this market. Until some other OEMs enter the country and the segment as well. The Safari and other soft-roader fwd SUVs are gunna slump
