The new Hyundai Alcazar SUV is presented in three variants of Prestige, Platinum, and Signature with petrol and diesel engine option
The new Hyundai Alcazar was launched in India on 18th June 2021. It was opened for pre-bookings on 9th June at Rs.25,000, and till date 11,000 orders have been placed.
