perodua bezza booking

Perodua has announced that its new Bezza sedan will be open for booking at all 181 showrooms across the country from this Saturday, July 16. As detailed in both our first drive and initial specification stories earlier today, the car will go on sale in five variant forms, the 1.0L Standard G (manual and auto), the 1.3L Premium X (manual and auto) and the range-topping 1.3 Advance (auto only).

Explaining the name, Perodua president and CEO Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said that the new car breaks all conventions when it comes to what is expected from a compact sedan. “The sedan name takes inspiration from the word Beza in Bahasa Malaysia, which means ‘different’. And that is exactly what Perodua’s first EEV sedan is – distinctly different,” he explained.

As for the double ‘Z’ in the name, the company states that this somewhat resembles the number 22, which subtly alludes to how long the automaker has been around. The ‘Beyond Compact’ tagline, meanwhile, is supposed to communicate how the Bezza goes beyond drivers’ expectations of what a Malaysian sedan offers.

Aside from the equipment mentioned in the earlier stories, the Bezza features kit such as a shark fin antenna, remote boot release, one-touch power window with jam protection, front and front corner sensors, a reverse camera and reverse sensors.

A total of six colours will be offered for the Bezza, with two new metallic shades, Sugar Brown and Ocean Blue, being available for the 1.3L variants. These join the existing Lava Red, Ebony Black, Glittering Silver and Solid Ivory White in the exterior colour palette available for the car.
