An extended novelty will be sold in India, where the Hyundai Creta (on some markets Hyundai Cantus or Hyundai ix25) will appear in early 2021.

Hyundai has patented the name Alcazar in India. It is reported by the Indian edition of MotorBeam. The Korean brand application states that this name is planned to be used for some kind of crossover. A completely new Hyundai SUV for the Indian market is not planned in the near future, but there should appear a seven-seater version of the second-generation Creta, and for this version, according to MotorBeam, they could have come up with a separate name. Note, the Indian Tata did the same with a three-row modification of the Harrier crossover – this SUV was turned into Gravitas.

As it became known Hyundai in the Indian city of Chennai began assembling and changing equipment. It should be noted that the Creta with the third row of seats (+30 cm to the overall length) will go off the same production lines of the plant, which since March 16 have been producing standard 5-seater crossovers of the second generation.

It is planned to spend about 5 days on all equipment adjustment work. The first production 7-seater Creta will be released in late 2020.

In the engine compartment, the model will not change. It will house the familiar 1.5 liter gasoline engines. (115 h.p.), 1.4 l. turbocharged (140 hp) and 1.5-liter diesel (115 hp). The transmission is a 6-speed manual transmission, a 6-speed hydromechanical “automatic”, a 7-speed “robot” with two clutches and a “variator”. All Creta from Chennai were just front-wheel drive, and will remain.

The appearance of the novelty remains a mystery, but we know about it from the spy shots of the model. It is known that the crossover will not only significantly increase in length, but also in overall height, to provide acceptable comfort on the third row of seats. the side profile will also change, and the new taillights will completely fit on the tailgate with a huge full-width opening.

Creta from India will also be exported to a number of neighboring countries. The question of export to Africa and Latin America is open.
