Hyundai Alcazar 1st impressions: 600 km drive immediately post delivery

The car is extremely smooth to drive and a definite upgrade from my Mahindra TUV300.

BHPian BattleTank recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

After around 3 months post booking my car, I got hold of my Alcazar (1.6L Signature, Auto, 6-seater) during the auspicious Navratri period.

Did not wait long to hit the road and take the “Castle” on wheels for a long drive. Destination: Chikkamaglur.

I must say the diesel car is smooth to drive, love the electronic power steering (having driven cars with hydraulic steering) and boy did the car take care of itself at steep inclines and sharp curves – the auto hold is a blessing at the ghats. Loved every bit of the redundancy that’s on offer for the left sided limbs.

Completed a 600 km round trip, no major hassles so far. Love the music system (a definite upgrade from my earlier TUV300), the air conditioning and ventilated seats are yet to be tested (the current Bangalore weather and the highlands of Chikkamaglur are not ideal testing grounds for air conditioning). I’ve taken a fancy for the build-in Map My India navigation app, used it extensively during my trip.

The boot space is decent. Wasn’t aware the boot too had a request sensor – not a bad feature, but would’ve preferred an electric tailgate (not complaining).

An observation (which I will try and rectify during the first servicing) is the on and off rattle at high speeds on the center console. Its a feeble voice heard clearly when the music is off.

Just thought of sharing my first impression about the car we all love on this thread.
