Just a few days after Perodua gave us our first look at the new Perodua Alza, a leaked brochure of the refreshed seven-seat MPV has now surfaced on the internet. This set of images come courtesy of paultan.org reader Farhan Pramadipta, where we now have a lot more information about the impending facelift.

As with the soon-to-be outgoing model, three variants of the Alza will be offered – S (Standard), SE and AV (Advanced). All of them are powered by the familiar 1.5 litre four-cylinder DVVT petrol engine (3SZ-VE) with 102 hp and 136 Nm of torque. What’s different is only the S can be had with either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. The SE, which gets the same options previously, can only be specified with a slushbox, as is the case with the AV.

The SE and AV are the only variants that come with a new look, as we’ve seen in Perodua’s Merdeka greeting. Up front, the new bumper features a wider lower intake that leads to blacked-out sections where the repositioned fog lamps reside. Halogen projector headlamps continue to be present, with no change in the shape of the clusters, but there are now front sensors to aid you when parking.

Meanwhile, the grille has been restyled, now with two slats running through the Perodua badge and a thin black strip placed above it. At the back, a sportier rear bumper includes thinner fins for the faux diffuser, and the rear reflectors are more horizontally-inclined. The tailgate garnish adopts a new design too, with a prominent chrome piece at the bottom of it.

Also part of the exterior updates are two-tone side skirts that have black accents on them, while the 15-inch wheels come in a titanium finish – S variant retains the silver finish. On that mention, Granite Grey is a new addition to the Alza’s pallete, joining Electric Blue, Mystical Purple, Glittering Silver and Ivory White.

Moving inside, all variants receive a slight update to the dashboard, which comes with a new finish and centre air-con vents. The gauges in the instrument cluster are also of a new design, and Perodua touts enhanced cooling for passengers in the third row.

For the AV, there’s a new head unit with navigation and smartphone screen mirroring, along with a roof-mounted monitor, whille other variants adopt a basic unit with USB and Bluetooth inputs. Also found in the AV is a new leather seat design, with the remaining options receiving a darker fabric seat colour.

On the safety side of things, you still get two airbags at the front, ABS with EBD and brake assist, Isofix child seat anchors in the second row and reverse sensors. The aforementioned front sensors are only found on the SE and AV, with a reverse camera being exclusive to the latter of the two.
