Tata Safari vs Hyundai Alcazar: Spec shootout as three-row SUV war hots up
The 7-seater segment in India has been consistently witnessing appreciable growth over these months especially after the advent of Crossovers like Hector Plus and Tata Safari. Soon this segment is about to see another strong contender i.e Hyundai Alcazar.

Revealed few months ago, the alcazar happens to be a 7-seater version of Hyundai Creta slated to launch this month. Don’t assume the Alcazar as only a 2 extra seat added version of Creta. It will be slightly bigger with it’s proportions, different under the Hood and will also get handful of extra techies than Creta.

But how does it stack-up against the Tata Safari ? Let’s do a detailed comparison between the two on the basis of some standard aspects.

While Hyundai Hasn’t throwed any details regarding the dimensions but we are familiar with it’s 2670 mm wheelbase which is 19 mm more than Tata Safari’s wheelbase. Now, Considering the fact that it is 150 mm longer than Creta, the Alcazar will be around 4450 mm longer with it’s length which will make it smaller than Safari by 211 mm.

The Alcazar offers an adequate boot space of 180-litres compared to puny 73-litres of Safari. If the Alcazar shares same width as Creta which is 1790 mm then it will make Safari longer by 104 mm.

Going through the above dimension the Safari feels a bit more spacious and practical than alcazar on papers. Nevertheless, the exact dimensions of the Alcazar is yet to be revealed.


Hyundai Alcazar will carry the same features you get in the Creta which means you have got a 10.25-inch infotainment system with connected Car tech, 8-speaker BOSE sound system, wireless charging pad, 8-way powered driver seat, ventilated front seats, tire pressure monitoring system, ambient lighting, air purifier, multiple driving and traction modes, Trio-beam LED headlamps, digital instrument cluster and a panoramic sunroof.
