All three SUVs come with a lengthy feature list. Common features include a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, connected car tech, a panoramic sunroof, climate control, powered driver’s seat, keyless entry with push button start, and automatic headlamps.

  • The Tata Safari misses out on two useful features: a wireless phone charger and ventilated front seats. 

  • Powered tailgate is exclusive to the Hector Plus. But it misses out on drive and traction modes. 

  • While the Safari and Hector come with a larger coloured multi-info display, the Alcazar goes a step ahead with a first-in-segment 10.25-inch digital driver’s display.

*can be optioned with mild-hybrid

The Alcazar’s 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine has the better power figures on paper. But the Hector Plus’ turbocharged unit is torquier. Also, the Hector’s unit can be optioned with mild-hybrid tech that provides short boosts of power during hard acceleration.

Both SUVs can be had with manual and automatic transmissions, but the Hector AT can be specced either with a CVT or a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Alcazar’s 1.5-litre diesel engine, in contrast, has a 55PS and 100Nm power deficit when compared to the Safari’s and Hector’s 2.0-litre FCA-sourced engine. 

A 6-speed manual gearbox is offered as standard for all three SUVs. However, it’s the Tata and Hyundai that provide an optional automatic gearbox for their diesel engines.
