Its petrol model gets a bigger, more powerful engine than the Creta, while the diesel model is also being offered.
Interestingly, this oil-burner comprises 63 per cent of the overall bookings hinting the diesel is still a much-preferred powertrain in this segment.
Out of the 11,600 bookings, 5,600 units have already been delivered to customers all over India, the company revealed.
The carmaker had started accepting bookings for the Alcazar on 9 June and launched the SUV on 18 June.
These bookings still continue with various dealers suggesting a small waiting period. We are hopeful HMIL will be able to cater to this demand with the increasing popularity of the SUV.
It comes with four powertrains that include 2.0 l petrol MPi engine and 1.5 l diesel CRDi engine with options of 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions. The 2.0 l Petrol MPi engine can accelerate up to 100 kilometres per hour (km/h) in 9.5 seconds.
The Alcazar, according to the manufacturer, is all set “to redefine premiumness, comfort and versatility for an unrivaled travel experience with a host of 1st in segment features.
