Added in: News

The Hyundai Alcazar has been doing pretty well in our market with healthy monthly sales figures. With a long list of features and engine/transmission options, there is an Alcazar for everyone. However, those who wanted a 7 seater configuration with a diesel engine were limited to the base Prestige variant. Though the Prestige variant is well loaded, it still misses out on some goodies like the 360-degree parking camera. Hyundai has now introduced a Platinum(O) variant with the 7 seater configuration for the diesel automatic combo.
