showed you the car unwrapped yesterday, but today is the day of the Perodua Alza facelift’s official launch, and here are the full details, specs and pricing from the event at 1 Utama.
The compact three-row MPV’s proven mechanicals are unchanged, so
under the hood is the familiar 3SZ-VE 1.5 litre engine with DVVT. With
104 PS and 136 Nm of torque, the 16-valve DOHC unit is paired to either a
five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic.
The Alza has been around for over four years (launched back in November 2009, 167k sold to date) so a fresh face is welcome. The MPV looks more like the current Myvi
now, with a more sculptured front bumper, a thicker grille and a
reshaped lower air intake. The headlamp cluster loses the
orange-coloured “eyebrow” signal lamps above the main projectors.
At the back, the tailgate gets a black-painted strip adjoining the
glass. The Perodua and Alza emblems sit on this strip. It’s a small
change that delivers quite a big visual difference. The bumper gets
vertical reflectors at the edges, following the style of the original Myvi SE. The Alza gets an SE variant for the first time and it wears a five-piece bodykit for a sportier look.
Safety wise, the four-star ASEAN NCAP
car is equipped with dual-airbags across the board, ABS with EBD and
Brake Assist, and ISOFIX mounts (second row) for child seats. The front
brakes are ventilated discs while the rear brakes are drums.
Inside, changes include a black interior in place of the previous
two-tone black/grey combo, a new instrument cluster design and a for the
a multimedia system with navigation and reverse camera functions, plus a
roof-mounted monitor. You’ll also find a storage compartment under the
new front armrest for the automatic variants.
