And it continues to be so. Right now, Hyundai, on average, sells about 3,000 units of the Alcazar every month. So, if you are planning to buy the Hyundai Alcazar right now, here are some key pros and cons you should know about the three-row SUV.

1. While the Alcazar is bigger than the Creta, the cabin doesn't feel all that spacious. It feels very compact, and the black interiors make it look even more cramped.
2. The third row of the Alcazar is way too cramped for adults to sit comfortably. It's only good for kids, and that too, for short distances.
3. The Alcazar doesn't get Creta's 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine even as an option, and that's a big miss.
4. Hyundai is not offering enough variants with a 7-seater cabin layout. The top-end variant doesn't get it even as an option, so you will have to stick to the entry- or mid-spec trims for the 7-seater version.
