Hyundai India is all set to launch the Alcazar 7-seater SUV on June 18, 2021 in the Indian market. Ahead of the official launch and price announcement, the company has commenced the dealer dispatch of the SUV as evident by the spy-shots acquired by our friends at Cars Review.

It will be offered in both 6-seater and 7-seater configurations while bookings have already started at a token payment of Rs 25,000 across Hyundai dealerships and online.
Last week, the South-Korean brand had released the first official images of the interior cabin of the SUV.
