Mahindra XUV500 and the Hyundai Alcazar are the most talked about 7 seaters in the market currently. Although a lot of information about these cars is speculative we are going to compare them. This will be based on the things that are known and also on the features that we expect depending up on their brands. Here is all you need to know about Hyundai Alcazar vs Mahindra XUV500.


Firstly the Hyundai Alcazar might use the same platfrom as the Hyundia Creta. It will have an extended overhang and that will result in more space for the third row. As of now the Hyundai Creta gets a lot of boot space. This in the Alcazar will be compromised as offering both is difficult.

The Mahindra XUV500 was a 7 seater since its start and the platform has been developed for a 7 seater. In those ways the XUV500 will not feel like an after thought. The Ssangyong Platform will receive changes to improve the handling and ride. Also we are expecting high safety from this platfrom as the XUV300 is the safest car in India.


The Engine on the Hyundai Creta will make its way to the Hyundai Alcazar. The 1.5-litre diesel and petrol seem sufficient but the weight of the car will dictate the way it feels to the driver. A considerable change in driving dynamics is not expected as the Hyundai Creta comes with an electronic steering which leaves room for software tweaking

The most interesting part will be where the Turbo petrol is offered. Firstly will this car get turbo petrol? If yes then would the 1.4-litre be sufficient? We expect Hyundai to keep everything same and just alter with the internals to increase the torque band. This might lead to some power loss but the wider torque might result in better pulling power.

With the Mahindra XUV500 the SUV will have  a diesel as well as petrol engine this time. The is expected to get same engines as the Mahindra Thar. These too like the Hyundai Alcazar engine will undergo some change in state of tune which will result in more power and torque.
