The New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP) has released the official crash testing video for the recently-launched Perodua Bezza, in which the carmaker’s first-ever sedan managed to obtain a five-star rating.

However, the rating only applies to the 1.3 Advance variant, whereas it’s four stars for the 1.3L Premium X (MT and AT) and 1.0L Standard G (MT and AT) as they do not come standard with dual frontal seatbelt reminders (SBR) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), which is an ASEAN NCAP requirement for five stars.

In the Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) test, the Bezza managed to score a respectable 15.38 out of a possible 16 points, and an 85% compliance rating in the Child Occupant Protection (COP) test. The Bezza also managed to score a ‘Pass’ in the side impact test as well.

Standard safety kit for the Bezza includes dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and Isofix child seat mounts (top tether). As mentioned earlier, only the range topping 1.3L Advance comes with VSC and dual front seatbelt reminders that allows it to qualify for five stars.

The Perodua Bezza is already on sale in Malaysia, with prices starting at the RM37,300 mark, and going all the way up to RM50,800. Two engines are available here – 1.0 litre VVT-i and 1.3 litre Dual VVT-i – mated to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic.
