The Perodua Alza facelift for 2018 has been revealed, with four variants available starting from RM51k. The variants are: Perodua Alza Standard (MT) RM51,490; Perodua Alza Standard (AT) RM54,290; Perodua Alza SE (AT) RM56,890; and Perodua Alza Advance (AT) RM62,690. All prices are on-the-road without insurance for Peninsular Malaysia.
Malaysia’s most popular and most affordable seven-seater Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) is still powered by the 1.5L 3SZ-VE DVVT engine paired to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
New in the Perodua Alza are redesigned instrument panel graphics, a new-look centre cluster and a two-motion remote control key (press once to unlock driver’s door, double-press to unlock all doors).
Air-conditioning flow to the third row has been improved with new fixed fins between the front centre air vents, an improved evaporator and enhanced heat-exchange piping. Additionally, the Standard and SE variants get a new audio system with USB and Bluetooth functionality, which the Advance gets an Android-based touch-screen multimedia system with Smart Link, Bluetooth, navigation and reverse camera functions, and a roof-mounted monitor.
Standard on all variants are front fog lamps, rear spoiler, leather-wrapped steering wheel, solar and security window film, reverse sensors and 15-inch alloy wheels (finished in silver on the Standard variant and titanium on SE and Advance variants).
The SE and Advance variants receive new-design leather seats and front corner sensors. These two variants also get the new front bumper with a larger lower intake, new twin-bar front grille, new side skirts, new rear bumper and tailgate garnish.
Safety-wise, there are dual front airbags, ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist and ISOFIX child seat points in the middle row; these features give all variants a four-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating.
Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director Dato’ Dr Zahari Husin said, “Our latest Perodua Alza continues to offer the comfort, practicality, versatility and ample room for seven that Malaysians have loved and adored for nearly a decade.”
“With an abundance of storage compartments and flexible seating configurations, the latest Alza is perfect for family outings and everyday use in line with its ‘Versatile as You’ tagline,” he said, adding that over 344,200 units have been sold since the Alza’s birth in 2009.
“Recognising customers’ fondness for personalising their vehicles, Perodua is introducing a range of unique GearUp accessories for the Alza, for the first time. These include exterior cosmetic add-ons, quilted seat covers and sun shades,” Dato’ Dr Zahari said.
The new Perodua Alza comes with a five-year / 150,000 km warranty (whichever comes first) and is available in Granite Grey (new to the Alza, exclusive to SE and Advance variants), Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Mystical Purple and Electric Blue.
The Alza is now open for booking and will be gradually hitting showrooms nationwide from today (6 September).
