It is easy to see that the Hyundai Alcazar production version has a lot in common with the Creta. Some details like the front fenders, bonnet and even 4 doors are similar to the Creta. The most significant changes are concentrated in the rear end. The Alcazar’s rear overhang has been lengthened and the C-pillar is much thicker.
In addition, the taillights are also redesigned, looking more modern than the Creta model and the rear bumper is also refined. In addition, the SUV also uses a new style of two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels.
