Perodua has introduced the 2018 version of the Alza seven-seater MPV featuring a few cosmetic additions as well as new equipment.
The MPV will be offered in four variants:
*All prices are on-the-road (OTR) without insurance for Peninsular Malaysia
New to all Alza variants are the redesigned instrument panel graphics, redesigned centre cluster, and a two-motion remote control key (press once to unlock driver’s door, double-press to unlock all doors).
Air-cond flow to the third row is now better thanks to new fixed fins between the front centre air vents, an improved evaporator and enhanced heat-exchange piping.
Also standard across the board are front fog lamps, a rear spoiler, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, solar and security window film, audio system with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, reverse sensors and 15-inch alloys that are finished in silver.
SE and Advance variants get all of the above plus titanium-finished alloys, a new front bumper with a larger lower intake, a new twin-bar front grille, new side skirts, and a new rear bumper and tailgate garnish. Also exclusive for the SE and Advance variants are newly designed leather seats and front corner sensors.
Those who opt for the Alza Advance on the other hand get a roof-mounted monitor and an Android-based touch-screen multimedia system with Smart Link, Bluetooth, navigation, and reverse camera functions. These two features are not available in any other variant.
All Alzas are powered by the 1.5-litre 3SZ-VE DVVT engine paired to a five-speed manual transmission on the Standard MT, and a four-speed automatic transmission the other variants.
On the safety front, dual front airbags, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist and ISOFIX child seat points in the middle row are standard across the Alza line-up, netting all variants a four-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating.
Offered with a 5-year/150,000 km warranty (whichever comes first), the new Alza, which is available in 5 colour choices - Granite Grey (new, exclusive to SE and Advance variants), Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Mystical Purple and Electric Blue, will be available at all Perodua showrooms nationwide from 6 September onwards.
