Hyundai Alcazar Facelift Spied Testing on Indian Roads

South Korean automaker Hyundai cars has started testing of the upcoming Alcazar facelift in India. The 7-seat SUV has been a popular model for the brand since its launch a couple of years ago. But with the entry of new rivals like the Citroen C3 Aircross, an update for the Alcazar with added features would be quite welcome. Now, latest spy shots give a sneak peek into what the Alcazar facelift may look like. We take a closer look.

Hyundai Alcazar Facelift: Spy Shots Emerge

While the test mule is clad in camouflage, the spy shot does reveal a few design elements. The facelifted Alcazar will get exterior changes like redesigned bumpers, updated front and rear bumpers, new LED DRLs and grille. The SUV is also expected to get tweaked headlights, brand-new alloy wheels, and a LED lightbar at the rear.

Moving inside, not much is known how the facelifted Hyundai Alcazar will look. However, it will likely get a raft of new features including ADAS-tech, 360-degree camera, and new upholstery. The SUV already comes pretty loaded with features like a 10.25-inch infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, wireless charging, BlueLink connected car tech, ventilated front seats, panoramic sunroof, TPMS, and more.
