2022 Perodua Alza – should you buy the X, H or AV?

2022 Perodua Alza – should you buy the X, H or AV?

The 2022 Perodua Alza has made its launch debut in Malaysia today and is offered in three variants, starting with the base X that retails at RM62,500, followed by the mid-spec H at RM68,000 and the range-topping AV at RM75,500. These prices are on-the-road figures without insurance, but with sales and service tax (SST) factored in.

In its second generation, Perodua’s latest seven-seat MPV is built on the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) which is also used by its sister models – the Daihatsu Xenia, Toyota Avanza and Veloz – as well as Perodua’s other, smaller SUV, the Ativa.

Measuring 4,425 mm long and 1,730 mm wide, the all-new Alza is 205 mm longer and 35 mm wider than its predecessor, although the wheelbase is unchanged at 2,750 mm. It’s a taller vehicle too, with a height of 1,670 mm for the H and AV (the X is 1,660 mm tall), which is 50 mm more than before.

All three variants are powered by a 2NR-VE 1.5 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine that you’ll also find in the latest Myvi, albeit with slightly more grunt as it serves up 106 PS (105 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm at 4,200 rpm. The DOHC Dual VVT-i mill is paired with a D-CVT that sends drive to the front wheels.

With the basic specifications laid out, let’s turn our attention to equipment. As usual, we’ve prepared a spec-by-spec comparison in point form so you, the car buyer, can find out exactly what you’re getting with each variant. The Alza comes in five colours – Vintage Brown, Garnet Red, Elegant Black, Glittering Silver and Ivory White (solid) – with the first two being exclusive to the H and AV. Let us know in the comments below which variant you think is worth your money as well as the best colour for the Alza.

    3. Proven efficient fuel economy engine 22km/liter
    4. Proven reliable DCVT gearbox with no crazy jerking and scooter whining noise
    5. Proven durable Toyo tires (not some generic brand that sounds like a map or King Kong)
    6. Top notch standard safety features 6 airbags, AES AEB, Lane departure warning etc
    7. Always ready-stock spare parts for peace of mind, car no need sleep 1 year at service centre
    8. Which means no headache, mental stress and can sleep soundly worry-free every night sweet dreams
    9. Very high resale value, very low regret value (both also RV)
    10. Turn signal stick on right hand side, simple logic common sense

      Since Perodua fanbois so confident about this car will be a success, now is the time for Gomen to revoke Perodua status as national carmaker and remove all tongkats that had been given to them all these decades. It is well known they are not a real carmaker after all so let’s take down all this fakery and treat them as they are, a car rebadger nothing else, and they should be paying back all the tax rebates and preferences they enjoyed for so long. Ada bran?

    Will they be giving that same crappy dashcam as the myvi?

    • What’s wrong with Myvi’s dashcam? It’s pretty high resolution (1440p). Make sure you remove the sticker on the camera otherwise will be blurry. I didn’t notice got sticker until after 2 weeks driving my new Myvi

        Stopped working after a short while. Dismantled and bought an after market cam. Didn’t want to spend my day at service centre just to claim this crap.

        You can ask the service centre how many people come back with faulty dashcam.

        Dashcam je tak baik. Lain2 ok je. Klu Proton, ada yang turbo bocor, lower arm patah dan ntah apa-apa lagi yang menanti. Pastu tunggu parts sampai 8 bulan. Giler ke apa, sampai 8 bulan. Dah boleh beranak sorang dah.

          Takata airbag dah tukar ke belum? Boleh mati tau.
          Fuel pump dah tukar ke belum? Boleh mati tau.
          Kereta P2 dah tukar ke belum? Boleh mati tau.
          P2 tak sebanyak masalah, tapi masalahnya boleh mati tau.

            Takyahlah nak mati mati. Nampak sangat marah sebab gagal nak mempertahankan P1 yang dicintai. Ilmu tak cukup. Ko kena ingat, yang kat bawah P2 tu ialah P1. Sebab P1 tak baguslah yang P2 tu kat atas dia. Pastu dalam 5 tahun di jual 2 kali.

            Yang kat bawah P2 ialah tanah sebab bawak p2 risiko masuk kubor. Ada orang ke org kesah P1 tak jual sebanyak P2, atau 5 tahun dijual 2 kali. Takde pon kesah, asal dpt keta mantap, selamat pakai dan jimat wang. Ko beriya dgn problematic P2 lantak ko tapi ingatlah nyawa keluargamu dalam keta tu. Bahaya tu. Jgn terlalu masyuk dgn P2 tu, P1 pakai tanpa waswas.

            Klu P1 guna tanpa was was, takde lah sales dia kurang dari P2. Sebab orang was was dan problematic lah sales P1 kurang.

  • top spec is the best!

    if this car has a 2.0 liter engine, then it is perfect.

    Not sure why they fully covered the panel under the start engine button for AV specs. It looks so empty as if the designer forgot to complete it after their lunch break. Ironically lower specs came with a very decent compartment. Not sure what are they thinking.

    Other than this, every part of this car is so well designed. Plenty of USB ports, door lock button right at the center, adjustable middle row. These fits Malaysian market like a glove!

    Good job perodua team!
