Perodua has teased an upcoming new variant of its Bezza sedan, which it is set to debut later this week. The GXtra, as it’s called, will be a 1.0 litre derivative. No details have emerged, but as its name suggests, the new variant should contain a higher level of specification and trim compared to the current base 1.0L Standard G model, which is available in both manual and automatic transmission forms.

The Bezza, which was launched in July 2016, received a minor update last year involving cosmetic changes, though all but one involved the 1.3L Premium X and Advance models, with the 1.0L Standard G also receiving the deeper rear skirt that better covered the underside of the car when viewed directly from behind.

While the Premium X and Advance versions received additional bright trim (and new leather upholstery for the Advance), the Standard G’s interior remained untouched by the update – it could well be that the GXtra will add on items.

Presently, the Perodua Bezza 1.0L Standard G comes equipped with 14-inch alloy wheels, fabric seats, a polyurethane steering wheel, a standard audio system with a USB port, manual side mirrors, 60:40 split-folding rear seats, reverse sensors, power windows, dual airbags and ABS with EBD and brake assist.

Will the new Bezza GXtra sit on top of the 1.0L Standard G, or replace it in the line-up? We’ll find out soon enough.
