Acceleration is amazing. It is barely a week old and just drove around 200 kms in the city. After 1st servicing I am sure mileage will increase, but as of now I am getting a steady 10.5 to 11 km/l with AC in 20 degrees auto mode.
I have seen many youtube videos where they mentioned that diesel engine is a lag.
Alcazar is just 80 kgs heavier than a Creta. So imagine driving a Creta with a 80 kgs co-passenger. Nobody ever complained of the Creta being underpowered.
I drove the Harrier and Safari and due to the hydraulic steering it becomes a bit heavy to drive in city traffic. 168 bhp on a Safari is deliciously good for performance enthusiasts but then they should also consider a 550 kgs heavier vehicle.
Alcazar is such a joy to drive in the city traffic as well as lanes with lots of turns.
Acceleration of the car in comfort mode is mind blowing which I tested with 4 people seated.
I don't understand which people find Alcazar diesel underpowered. This is amazingly tuned engine by Hyundai and the 6 speed torque converter automatic is such a blessing.
This is definitely the best and a very powerful SUV with the most features in its segment. I drove and also test drove many models after which I considered Alcazar.
Diesel model after 1st servicing should give 14-15 km/l in city and 19-20 km/l in highway if driven in a relaxed manner. Using sports mode and driving at 150 kmph will of course reduce fuel efficiency.
I will 100% suggest Alcazar to everyone.
Easy handling, great comfort, best in segment mileage, great looks and amazing diesel automatic engine makes Alcazar a must buy.
