The Alcazar SUV, the all-new Verna that makes its premiere on March 21, the Creta SUV, and even the Kia lineup, including the Seltos and the Carens, will all use the same new 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine. According to Hyundai, the new 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine is E20 (Ethanol) fuel prepped and RDE compliant. A six-speed manual transmission is also an option, as well as a new 7-speed DCT that takes the place of the six-speed torque converter automatic offered with the 2.0 diesel.

Only six-seat configurations and the regular 7-speed DCT gearbox are available on the higher-spec Platinum (O) and Signature (O), which are priced at Rs. 19.96 lakh and Rs. 20.25 lakh, respectively.
