New MPV better in every way

The all-new Alza has attracted many new fans.

TO say demand for the new Perodua Alza is strong is an understatement.

With customers having to wait up to nearly a year, it’s easy to see why the Alza is so popular among Malaysians.

The new seven-seater Alza, now in its second generation, is an MPV with attitude.

Available in X, H and AV variants, the Alza appeals with a bigger cabin, low ride feeling, a stable ride and easy access especially for young children and the elderly.

The seats come with a flexible arrangement capability to accommodate various seating or cargo carrying layouts.

The dashboard has been updated along with a restyled steering wheel, with the range-topping AV getting a two-tone dashboard and two-tone semi-leather upholstery.

The exterior looks more mature and filled out, featuring a classy grille, LED headlights with follow-me home function and LED tail lights.

What’s also compelling is the value-for-money proposition.

The X, H and AV are priced right from RM62,500, RM68,000 and RM75,500 respectively.

The powertrain is also capable and fuel efficient.

Under the hood is a 1.5 Dual VVT-i EEV engine with DCVT delivering 78kW (105hp) and 138Nm of torque, while promising a frugal fuel economy of 22km per litre.

A dual mode Continuously Variable Transmission and three drive modes of Normal, Eco and Power relay power to the front wheels.

Safety has been vastly improved in the new-generation Alza. Among the safety kit are six airbags, Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) features, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Departure Prevention, rear air-conditing vents, and rear corner sensors.

The AV gets additional safety upgrades such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Control, Blind Spot Monitor, 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

The new Alza is among the latest Perodua vehicles displayed at the CarSifu Auto Show 2022 at Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur from Oct 5 to 9.
