Hyundai is preparing for the launch of two updated SUVs. The Creta facelift is currently in testing in India and Korea, and spy shots have revealed the first look at the revamped Alcazar. The Alcazar facelift is expected to hit the market after the Creta facelift, which is scheduled for early next year.

The Alcazar facelift will feature significant cosmetic changes while retaining its mechanical core. Although the test mule is heavily camouflaged, it’s clear that it’s an Alcazar based on its silhouette and wheelbase. The facelift will share design elements with the upcoming Creta facelift, including a split headlamp setup, a redesigned front grille, and changes to the bumpers. The rear will also see updates with horizontally positioned, wraparound-style connected tail lamps.

The interior will receive a new colour scheme for the dashboard and upholstery, along with potential feature additions, including Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Reports suggest a larger touchscreen, though the exact size remains unconfirmed. The Safari facelift is rumoured to have a larger 12.3-inch infotainment screen.

Under the hood, the Alcazar facelift will likely keep its existing powertrains. These include a 160hp, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 115hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine, both compliant with BS6 Stage II emissions standards.

Hyundai’s move to update both the Creta and Alcazar reflects the brand’s commitment to providing refreshed SUV options in the Indian market. These updates aim to enhance aesthetics and potentially add new features while retaining the reliable powertrains that have made these SUVs popular choices among consumers.
