2022 Perodua Alza – 65% of 30k bookings for AV spec

2022 Perodua Alza – 65% of 30k bookings for AV spec

For some Malaysians, nothing will ever be cheap enough. Even our heavily subsidised RON 95 petrol, which at RM2.05 per litre is among the cheapest in the world, is too expensive. Perhaps this is why politicians always use the “turun harga” promise. Today, inflation is a global phenomenon and most countries are being hit harder than us as subsidy is an alien concept elsewhere. Not many realise this.

But we cannot blame inflation for the new 2022 Perodua Alza’s price increase, because it’s a superior product over the 13 year-old MPV it replaces, in every department. Simply put, we’re paying more for a better car.

The new Alza starts from RM62,500 for the X, rising up to RM68,000 for the mid-spec H. The range-topping AV goes for RM75,500, on-the-road without insurance, with sales tax. Meanwhile, the old Alza was priced from RM52,661 to RM60,525, if you discount the sub-RM50k manual version.

2022 Perodua Alza – 65% of 30k bookings for AV spec

That’s a big jump, and the Alza AV is actually the second costliest Perodua after the RM77,900 Aruz AV. In AV form, the new MPV is more expensive than the top Ativa, which although smaller, is a more sophisticated product with a turbocharged engine. Too expensive then?

Maybe not, as we’re being offered plenty of car and features for the money. After this morning’s launch event, Perodua president and CEO Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad said that 65% of bookings for the new Alza are for the AV. That’s nearly 20,000 of the 30,000 bookings that P2 has collected for the new model, proving that the range topper is a good value proposition.

      You see lah? You should have study the brochures more before buying cars. Now you know lah, why you have regretted buying city is not better value than Alza. Because we know that and you should know too, City doesn’t have blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert and 360 degree camera. Aside that, honda isn’t good quality and services than used to be, is like old proton. This will be great lessons for you. Next time don’t simply buy cars if you don’t study brochures properly, especially when honda cars are still fitted with lanewatch without blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert and 360 degree camera

    I think they should charge another 10k more to reduce the waiting list and also subsequent better service due to more manageable vol.

  • A normal marketing is increase the selling price where there is over demand. So, can just increase to high spec rm85k to reduce long waiting list.
