Hyundai India has commenced bookings for the 2023 Alcazar three-row SUV, which gets a major update underneath the hood. The carmaker’s XUV700 rival will get a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine, replacing the current 2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, and will be sold alongside the updated RDE compliant 1.5-litre diesel engine. Not only that, the SUV also gets a minor styling update to keep things fresh. 


The new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine (which will also be available in 2023 Verna) developing 160PS, replaces the 159PS 2-litre petrol engine that was available with the Alcazar since launch. The new engine option, which meets the RDE compliance and can run on E20 fuel, will be offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. 

Here’s a quick comparison of the power specifications of the older and new petrol engine:


Hyundai Alcazar 2-litre Petrol

2023 Alcazar 1.5-litre Turbo-petrol


2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine

Power (PS)



Torque (Nm)



Transmission Options

6-speed MT / 6-speed AT

6-speed MT / 7-speed DCT

Fuel Efficiency  (MT / AT)

14.5kmpl / 14.2kmpl

17.5kmpl / 18kmpl

While the new engine makes just 1PS more than the 2-litre unit, it’s way more torquier. Most importantly, the new turbo-petrol engine is a lot more fuel efficient than the naturally aspirated petrol engine. Plus, it will be sold alongside the 115PS 1.5-litre diesel engine, which has also been updated to meet the more stringent emission standards. 

Apart from these upgrades, the Korean marque has also given it minor styling updates, in the form of a mildly revised grille and Turbo badging for the petrol variants. The puddle lamps have also been changed, now projecting the ‘Alcazar’ motif. Apart from that, the SUV also gets idle start stop and go for better fuel economy and six airbags as standard fitment across the range

All of these updates mean you can expect the sticker price to go up over the outgoing model, which starts from Rs 16.1 lakh (ex-showroom). It will continue its rivalry with the MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari, and the Mahindra XUV700
