New Perodua Alza SR – entry level variant from RM53k

New Perodua Alza SR – entry level variant from RM53k

Perodua has introduced a new variant of its MPV called Alza SR. SR stands for “Smart Ride” and this is an entry level variant positioned below the Standard and Advanced spec. It is available for viewing and booking at all 178 Perodua showrooms nationwide now.

Selling for between RM53,013.50 and RM56,513.50 on-the-road with insurance in Peninsular Malaysia, the new variant, available in BX Manual and BZ Auto spec, is Myvi SE priced. Previously, the cheapest Alza was the Alza GX Manual at 55,503.50, so this new one lowers the entry price by about RM2,500.

“The introduction of the Alza SR variant will make it even more affordable for Malaysian consumers looking to upgrade to a more spacious vehicle. Our customers like the versatility and functionality that Alza offers and do not mind having less features available compared with the standard and other variants. However, it does not mean we have compromised on the safety and the aesthetics of the Alza SR,” Perodua MD Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said.

Under the hood, nothing has changed, but what’s the difference is spec? The Alza SR makes do with “UV protected glass” on the windscreen only, as opposed to on all glass panels, and there’s no rear wiper. The wing mirrors are manually operated. Fog lamps, airbags, ABS, EBD and BA are unavailable, but that’s the case for the 1.5 SX and EZ as well, so it’s expected.

Note that in the Alza SR automatic, the parking brake has been moved to between the front seats (it’s foot operated in other auto Alzas), and the front seats are separated, not bench style. For the manual variant, there’s no change in layout.

The Alza SR comes in three colours: Glittering Silver, Ivory White and a new hue, Mystical Purple. Perodua targets to sell about 400 units of the Alza SR monthly, which will take up around 13% of Alza’s monthly sales.

Alza 1.5 BX Manual (Solid) – RM53,013.50
Alza 1.5 BX Manual (Metallic) – RM53,513.50
Alza 1.5 BZ Auto (Solid) – RM56,013.50
Alza 1.5 BZ Auto (Metallic) – RM56,513.50

          Do the rite thing, drive within speed limit, dont speed during the rain and jgn selalu main zig zag atau potong guna lane kiri atau lane kecemasan itu.

          Anyway, this thing is not meant to be full time 7 seater…part time shj.

          Abs & airbag BMW std is not the same as the one found in P1 or P2 vehicles rite?

          Stop complaining, if you want to buy better vehicle, go for other brands.
          Higher price Exora has much engine problems and such a bigger-size-coffin.
          Deal with it.

      At first when heard about Alza SR in the radio I thought it was a facelift model.
      Little bit disappointed coz just bought the premium model last mid year.
      Now little bit relieve…:) coz it just another variant with compatible price range.
      My previous ride was the Honda compact car but so far i’m happy with my alza.
      No need to mumble about the safety features. Just buy what you can afford.

      Complete bullshit. Fog lamps, airbags, ABS, EBD and BA are the safety features and all don’t have. Rear wiper is also essential during raining days especially for this type of car and he said they have not compromised on safety? Their Building Cars People’s First philosophy is so contradicting. I rather have all these safety features in replacement of normal steel cover plate rims (no alloy) or totally no rims, colour coded bumpers and side mirrors, power window exchanged to self winding windows. I realize that SX and EZ too do not have these features but why brag until say they do not compromise on safety?

      that’s the beauty of ‘technical’ terms, the law is only for cars, so anything which is not a car can escape the rule. in this case Alza is not a car, it’s mini MPV.
      but this year we should get dual airbags in all car variants. i wonder how much they will increase for Viva, Vios, and all other entry level cars.

      Bro, Perodua is generous enough to give free airbags installations later or will ask govt to subsidize them for the air bag installation excercise since its the govt ruling and MOT that is the one who approved this kind of spec on the road.

      This will create hassle for
      1) waiting time for installation
      2) booking for installation

      Anyway, the salesman told me that tentatively the production will still based on their original design without making dual airbag compulsory, Proton will only announce the FOC installation of the airbag when government requested.

  • Taking a Qoute from Aminar: However, it does not mean we have compromised on the safety and the aesthetics of the Alza SR,” Perodua MD Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said.

    1) Please explain the meaning of that statement when u have no ABS/EDB and airbags in the Base version?

    Toyota’s J version has ABS/EDB standard and that statement fit it. Please learn not to compromise safety when u know most of ALZA are bought to cater large family. Would it be such a terrible thing when an accident occurs could been avoided if ABS/EDB was installed? This equipment should come mandatory on all cars soon, so make the wise move to install it as a standard item.

      thats why they can provide cars without airbag n abs. nway, if u can wear a seatbelt it’s a bless! some of p2 driver didnt use seatbelt since i can see clearly the seatbelt icon is light up..it’s sad because u bought the car with an airbag..it wont work if u didnt use the seatbelt..morons!

  • Leaving out the rear wiper is definitely a no-no, it’s dangerous driving Alza without it in the rain, because the water droplets/mist caused by car-tail wind will reduce rear WS visibility to zero!

    The Perodua Alza ia already one of the fastest car in the market (try driving at 110 km/h on the highway and see how many Alza will overtake you). Without the useless things like ABS and airbags the Alza SR will probably be even faster. And the money saved can be used to add more meaningful accessories such as side skirts, spoilers and bigger tyres.

    Is the MD trying be funny or what? How can you make a car without “Fog lamps, airbags, ABS, EBD and BA” and still claimed the safety of the passenger is not compromised?

    Does this MD know that these safety features are already a mandatory standard it many countries? And please DO NOT use stupid comparison (like what politician always do) between Malaysia and countries like Laos or Myanmar.

    I strongly urged we as consumers through Paultan.org make a protest to the government about this matter. We want cheaper cars but not at the expense of buying it without adequate safety features.

    If anyone here have proper authorities contact point, please help make an effort to inform them about this. We don’t want manufacturer especially local to keep selling cars without safety features.

    • Agree with you.

      It’s actually a ‘smart’ move from P2 – and i’m talking strictly from marketing and sales point of view.

      There’s no way they can beat Exora in terms of product – Exora more space, more style, and now more power.

      But they do have point to attack in the pricing – for people who are looking for a bigger car but have financial constraints (please note that not everyone is lucky enough to afford Exora Bold).
      Now the all new Avanza is pushed to premium side – this is on cheap Alza way.

      Well, doesnt mean that i like T’s strategy, but, in 1land, it’s work!

      • Seriously though, this is quite a shock that Perodua actually thought about bringing this out with a smile on their face.

        No rear viper? The aerodynamic of an Alza or any MPV/4×4 will create no air flow to sweep water off, thus it would stay there and obstruct rear visibility, i drive a SUV myself and rear-vipers are honestly helpful.

        They’ll be better off with a commercial version of the Alza, 2 seats and plenty of cargo for a lower price for small companies instead of this. But surely, i bet they would sell plenty of this car as safety is not yet an issue to most Malaysian buyers as they see airbags and complicated terms like EBD, ABS a ‘gadget’ for premium cars only.

        We need to educate the importance of seat belts, ABS, EBD and airbags to Malaysians apart from ‘good looks and versatility’ so this vehicle would be rejected from thought because of the lack of safety equipments.

    Perodua is going about this wrong.

    They should launch this with only manual, 5 seats (or 2) and in white..sell it a few grand less…and use this for “commercial” applications only. At least that makes more sense. The Alza should still be able to lug about 400-500kg of cargo which makes it better than the almost evergreen AD Resort.

    maybe for Perodua… by having Brake, lights, roof, bumper already enough for safety… hence comes the statement

    “However, it does not mean we have compromised on the safety and the aesthetics of the Alza SR,” Perodua MD Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said.

    I was quite suprised that my relative who own an Alza complaining about the ABS kick in as brake system failure,he even go and skimmed the brake disc,change brake pad and eventually change the whole front disc setup to the used subaru set,and still complaining…
    Maybe this SR model suit people like him…

  • Stupid to leave the safety features like ABS, EBD and BA…..

    So next time change the brake disc to drums as well to lower the price further…..stupid Perodua…who ever wishes to buy this version…please give the money to me instead because you are buying a car that is bound to screw up…..last time ABS was a luxury but now it’s a necessity for all cars but Perodua is going backward

    So why not make a Alza SE SR version that doesn’t include aircond, power windows,spare tyre, 13 inch wheels, no ABS, EBD, BA and stage 3 light weight reduction with no doors as well

They can save further two and half grand or even three grand to make it sub-RM50k by removing left mirror, get rid power windows for manual one, no roof lining, no thick door panel and use wheel caps.

    when i was a kid, back in 80’s, my teacher loved to make us draw a car of the future… year 2000 car… most of us will draw cars with no tyres… means, it can float/fly like the jefferson…

    12 years after the year 2000… there is no flying cars….
    well it’s kindda ok to me ( a bit frustrated) ….believing flying cars will harm more people …

    but, 12 years after the year 2000, and perodua comes up with cars that have no airbag… is shitty, barbaric and secular….. perodua deserve to die…

    alza is an MPV… meant for carrying people with family and not for joyride… wut kind of f@ck@rs selling mpv with no airbags? the f@ck@rs who came up with this idea should die painfully… eat by a tiger or sumthing…

        Logic la brother or sister, look at the big picture…..later govt start back the lousy rule to scrap 15 yr old car becos many say no airbag, no abs = danger zone.

        ABS does not mean stopping distance is nearer, it actually isn’t. It just gives u back steering control considering u still have room to spare.

        Cheap ABS = fast way to die. Tell me, is our express bas passengers even required to wear a safety belt. Most of this buses are now turbocharged!

    I think perodua thought most of the consumers are fool. A car not comprises of safety with absent of airbags, abs etc and yet still launch to market.

    Btw, many people especially old people may not place much concern on these safety gears. They always thought driving slow and careful good enough to avoid emergency happen. So no matter how much young people like us don’t like and treat it like a crap, there are people still buying these crap.

    Hopefully government or transportation department can strict up the rule to make sure the new vehicle is launched with airbag and abs as standard.

    • everyone wants cheaper cars, but if want to cut cost there are some items which can be removed some musnt be removed. nowadays with so many cars on the road, airbags and abs are just for your increased safety. Of course, you can be a safe driver but you cannot say that those ah bengs/rempits out there wont run into you, right?

      perodua can reduce the price from removing other items such as the sports rim, power windows or use non painted bumpers like the cheaper vivas, etc.

    Lagi ramai yg mati dijalanraya disebabkan ketamakan perodua utk mengaut keuntungan semata. Satu tindakan yg paling bodoh oleh pengurusan perodua. Lagi ramai yg memadu keranda dari memandu kereta, patutlah bila kemalangan semakin ramai yg mati.

    Kereta kancil bila berlanggar habis mati satu kereta tetapi kereta spt camry dan setarafnya hanya cedera ringan. Nyawa rakyat bawahan amat murah dan pengeluar mengaut keuntungan atas darah mereka.

    Lebih baik pengeluar macam ini jual kereta di afrika atau papua new gini. Boikot pengeluar yg bodoh macam ini.

  • Actually this is by far most creative counter-attack in car market: indirect reverse pricing tactic. Here’s how:

    While Protongkat trying very hard to tell how great RM78K Exora Bold is, how many the upper level of MPV buyers would believe it and switch their Wish, Grandis, Estima, even Livina for this crap? It is an insult of intelligence to them.

    The market for Protongkat is stil the medium/low income buyers (sub-RM60K or below market) not the premium buyers.

    And Perodua don’t need to convince or pretend itself as super premium brand. Just offer the right price, the right fuel efficient car for the right market segment.

    So here Perodua simply counter-attack Protongkat with reverse pricing (not head-to-head) without much effort, but Protongkat ha, ha, ha, trying hard to sell its delusional expensive crap, eh!

    Lesson here: Delusional expensive crap don’t sell.

    No foglamps: Reduced visibility from oncoming motorist.
    No rear wiper: Reduced driver rear visibility especially in wet condition.
    No ABS: Easily locks the wheels, unable to steer the car under emergency braking.
    No EBD: Longer/further stopping distance.
    No BA: Less braking force/boost under emergency braking situation.
    No Airbag/s: Less chance of survival from head-on collision.
    Couple those features with the considerably soft chassis, high center of gravity, mass produced Alza, still you can say;

    “However, it does not mean we have compromised on the safety and the aesthetics of the Alza SR.”

    I am driving a 2004 MYVI and love this car since the day i took possession of it. Polished and taken care of it with full passion.

    Recently I was driving back to KL from Purtrajaya, going at 100km/h entering a corner closeby LimKokWeng College.

    Unfortunately, it was a rainy morning and road is slippery, therefore when I entered that corner, the wheels lost grip and car spun 720 degrees and stop right before the curb. No damage and everything is still in one piece.

    I look back with full pride and gratefulness to 3 things and they are:

    1. God spared both my wife and myself from any injuries
    2. ABS!!! – It was owesome. My first encounter of ABS safety at work. Though i didn’t manage to control the ride (was too shock to counter-steer), but the very fact the wheels didn’t lock, had allowed the car to gracefully manage it’s course by way of natural tyre traction. As a result, the car didn’t swing out of control..!!
    3. My Michelin wheels – it still has owesome grip even though it’s already due for replacement.

    Why i am writing this comment is to tell Perodua, you guys made a smart decision to put in ABS into your cars. Taking it out is just risking the lives of the people your car will be carrying. Do the right thing – keep people’s safety at heart, and profit second. Afterall, Perodua is the 2nd national car maker. Perodua could do a long with with a good CSR.

    i think this a psychology play from Perodua to its buyers…

    They create a flaw product from its own product line to lure buyer in buying higher spec one. They play safe within the price they targeted, as below will be concern by the buyer

    [Alza SR; Cheap, very low spec] vs
    [Alza Standard; add 2.5K, spec OK] vs
    [e.g Exora Basic; add about 2.5K, spec low]

    So, this will make the buyer left with only Standard Alza as option. Hence, maintaining their profit margin and possibility of increasing number of Alza sales…

    If use tagline such as Safety den P2 should use the Toyota Global Assessment Safety for chassis n crumple zone.

    Too many comments about the weak chassis but need external certification to really find out.

    Adding some anti intrusion bars, stiffening work goes a long way.

    SR means this is the basic ride……same body n engine n front wiper!

    It is not the EX or some exclusive tag….

    In manual, it is even more affordable.
