2022 Perodua Alza scores 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating

The New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP) has given the newly launched 2022 Perodua Alza a five-star safety rating with an overall score of 81.64 points.

The all-new, seven-seat MPV is the fourth model to be assessed under the current 2021-2025 protocol that is comprised of four categories, namely adult occupant protection (AOP), child occupant protection (COP), safety assist (SA) and motorcyclist safety (MS). It’s also Perodua’s second model to be subjected to the more comprehensive testing cycle after the Ativa.

According to ASEAN NCAP’s report, the Alza variant tested was the base X, which is one of three available, with the other two being the mid-spec H and range-topping AV. All three variants come standard with six airbags, VSC, traction control, ABS, EBD, brake assist, a seatbelt reminder system, auto high beam, lane departure warning and prevention as well as autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Only the AV gains a blind spot monitor and additional assist systems.

In the AOP category, the Alza managed score 28.96 out of 32 points, while it was 43.04 out of 51 points in COP. Meanwhile, the MS category saw the MPV register eight out 16 points, and in the SA category, it was 19.50 out of 21 points. With weighting adjustments, the final overall score was high enough for a five-star rating.

“The new Perodua Alza is Perodua’s second model assessed under the ASEAN NCAP protocol for 2021-2025. Despite ASEAN NCAP’s latest requirements for safety in its current protocol, Perodua has indeed rose to the occasion by installing several key safety assist technologies as standard fitment in all its variants. As such we are proud that Malaysian’s local manufacturers have been progressive in vehicle safety by adhering to ASEAN NCAP’s strict requirements,” said MIROS director-general Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim.

  • The opening for the front door has already gone out of shape in the frontal offset crash test yet still can get a 5 star safety rating?

      Scores are not based on how well the cars stay in shape, but primarily on how well the crash dolls respond to that crash. How the car looks afterwards does not matter. But, the doors stayed shut so it doesn’t lose points there.

      a pillar buckles! bet they would failed to open the front doors after crash test, needs to get power tools to ply open those jammed doors

      Yes exactly these cars are not actually save. The metal in these cars are literally thin and if the crash speed was little higher than the test it will easily be fatal.
      Look at the deformation of the A pillar Bmw or Mazda won’t do that. Imagine if this car crash or gets crashed with a lorry, especially with how often it happens in Malaysia.

    The final front impact to the adult @ 64km/h,
    Is marginal and comparable to other 5 stars crash test result.

    It’s safe, solid and appropriately competent.

    Indian cars should catch up.

  • The A pillar kinda compromise quite a bit.

      Most important is people is lesser impact.

      It’s either the Car or You to take the impact @ 64km/h,
      Identified typical actual reprentative crashing speed.

      Many 5 star car survive reality crash compared to the old cars with less stars.
      Even a BMW is a total loss @ 64km/h with this type of frontal damage.

        I dont get your point…..
        Total loss or not have nothing to do with crash test rating or survival rate in a crash.

        Damage to the passenger cell could be a sign of not too strong structure. Whenever this ‘cell’ is compromise, there is high pottential that the dash and/or floor is shoved towards the people at the front. There are other 5 star vehilce which kept the integrity of the A pillar and passenger compartment in similar crash test. I dont think engineer designed the paassenger cell as part of the crumple zone.

        Nonetheless, its still a 5 star car so chances of survival is still higher. 5 star car in our region that is.

          Exactly. If the A-pillar buckled with just a standard load for crash test. Wait till you see what happened with fully loaded 7 passengers onboard. It’s not going to be a pretty sight.

        You look at BMW crashes or even those lorry crashes in Malaysia, whenever it is a Myvi it will become pancake and most likely everyone dies, but a Bmw or Audi getting rear ended the car will be bad shape but the passenger cell is still there and the passengers will not get crushed, a testament to their engineering, quality, and materials.

    Is there any crash test at 110-120km/h which is the max speed limit at highway? This speed crash test result is more realistic rather than 64km/h speed

      It is not realistic for a 110km/h test and a person is unlikely to not injur at that speed… if u are traveling at 110km/h , there should be a reaction time for you to stump your brakes. at the point of impact, the speed of the car would be reduced to hopefully around 60km/h.

    Buckled A-pillar with just a typical crash test load. Can’t imagine what happened when in full load of 7 passengers onboard.

    You guys should talk about the difference between ASEAN NCAP and EURO NCAP. Looking at just the front door looks like the standards are vastly different

    OMG you guys should be doing rear end collisions, whole families are perishing in Malaysia because of that. Judging by the A pillar contorting, if this car is a bad rear end collision surely back rows passengers will RIP
