Hyundai Alcazar VS Toyota Innova Crysta Comparison Verdict
Launched at a starting price of Rs 16.3 lakh (ex-showroom), the Hyundai Alcazar is only slightly more affordable than the Innova Crysta, which retails at a starting price of Rs 16.53 lakh (ex-showroom). But the difference widens as you go up the variant lineup. The top-end Alcazar has been priced at Rs 19.99 lakh, while the top-spec Innova costs more than Rs 24 lakh.
