2022 Toyota Veloz in Malaysia – Alza’s upmarket twin shown in full; 2-tone paint, 17-inch wheels; RM95k est

UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has revealed more exterior and interior photos of the Toyota Veloz, which is the upmarket sibling of the all-new Perodua Alza, which was launched here recently, as well as the latest Avanza, which this replaces.

Order taking for the upcoming Toyota seven-seat MPV has already begun as of June 24, 2022, although the company still isn’t revealing pricing just yet – the sole 1.5 AT variant is estimated to retail at RM95,000 on-the-road without insurance, inclusive of sales tax.

Like the Alza and Avanza, the Veloz should be powered by a 2NR-VE 1.5 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, with drive going to the front wheels via a D-CVT. We don’t have exact outputs just yet, but in the Alza, the mill serves up 106 PS (105 hp) at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.

The car you see in these photos is finished in Blue Metallic with a black roof, which is one of two bi-tone options, with the other being Silver Metallic that is also paired with a black roof. Alternatively, there are three monotone hues available, namely Red Metallic, Metallic Bluish Black (cute name) and solid White.

Styling cues unique to the Veloz include a large hexagonal-shaped grille (with a Y-patterned mesh) that is flanked by T-shaped chrome accents for the prominent LED fog lamp surrounds. The angular headlamps with sequential indicators are also bridged by a long chrome strip that runs all the way under the clamshell bonnet.

The keen-eyed among you will also notice that the area around the wheel arches protrudes slightly rather than being recessed as they are on the Alza and Avanza. More differences are found in the rear, as the Veloz’s taillight clusters, which are similar in the shape to its siblings, are linked by a trim piece bearing a red stripe.

Additionally, a Veloz script is seen just above the number plate recess, the corner sections for the reflectors are smaller in size compared to the Alza, and there’s a rugged-looking faux skid plate in the lower apron. Finishing touches include skirting in black on the front and sides, along with wheels that appear to be similar in design to the 17-inch units (the Alza maxes out at 16s) fitted to the higher-end variants of the Veloz in Indonesia and Thailand.

Inside, you’ll find a dashboard layout not unlike the Alza’s, although the Veloz’s air vents are styled differently. The ones in the centre are a touch narrower and trapezoidal in shape to accommodate the nine-inch Display Audio infotainment system, which has a wider aspect ratio touchscreen and impressively supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity – the Alza can only do wired AA on the top-spec AV.

The controls for the single-zone automatic air-conditioning system are also model-specific with circular dials, as opposed to button-style controls found in the Avanza and Alza – the Perodua gets memory functions too.

Elsewhere, the trim on the dashboard and door panels are in a shade of light grey instead of black, while the centre console has an open storage area that an integrated Qi wireless charger (the Alza doesn’t get this). This is just ahead of switches for the electronic parking brake and auto brake hold (only the Alza AV gets both), as well as the gear lever – the latter getting its own surrounding trim design.

Features that are shared with the Alza include the multi-function steering wheel (albeit with the Toyota logo), seven-inch TFT digital instrument panel, two USB charge ports for rear passengers and boot space (137 litres with all seats up, 498 litres with the third row folded down).

Safety-wise, the Veloz gets the Toyota Safety Sense suite of driver assists as standard, with mentioned features being Pre-Collision System (PCS), otherwise known as autonomous emergency braking, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Given its projected price tag, which is RM19,500 more than a top-spec Alza (RM75,500), we should expect things like lane centring assist, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, front departure alert, pedal misapplication control and six airbags too also be included as standard.

On the mention of prices, should you want the Veloz with a two-tone finish, it’ll cost you an extra RM1,300, and if you want a rear digital video recorder (dashcam) that is from the Tech-Up accessories catalogue, it’s an additional RM350. Each purchase comes with a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.

We’ll only get a complete spec sheet when the Veloz is officially launched here, which we’re expecting will take place soon. Given what’s been presented so far, are you looking forward to the Toyota seven-seat MPV?

    If there is a Toyota Veloz GR,
    It’d be like Elsa, equipped with Good Sport Tyre Toyo Proxes series + lower CG stability and Fun.

    If so pun intended, compared OD for rim modi,
    The current Elsa Tyre size fits @ 195/60R16 is ~0.8% to 1.2% larger OD than the C segment Sedan. So.. like a Veloz Cross, Elsa Cross.

      DNGA Vios will be lighter than City,
      Lighter but stiffer too.

      City is nice but already outdated.
      DNGA/TNGA cars, is a good basis for Toyota to make for Racing cars, FIA certification etc.

      The modern alumnium block engine is even lighter weight, advanced
      Dual vvti aluminum engine – love 0W-20 full synthetic thin Engine Oil for efficiency.
      D-CVT also even better, even lighter but more responsive, with Power mode, Shiftronic Selection too.

      It’s lighter, stiffer, better, and resulted in more fun + solid and more responsive handling.
      A race car cannot go heavy, but still meet safety compliance.

      Elsa, veloz not for racing, but it’s made to give confidence and driving ease, better fuel consumption. 5+2 bed Lounge is joyfull.

        I find it hard to believe that both car assembled from the same plant with probably almost 90% of the component is the same have better quality than the other. Few of the obvious difference that you can see between Alza AV and Veloz here is just the tech offering. I mean, come on, are you saying that Velos has different frame quality than Alza? or does it have a different door quality? different hood quality? That’s already 70% of the car so what is the “quality” differences that you’re saying here?

            Like I said, the frame and door.. basically the structure of the car makes 70% of the whole car. If it’s true that P2 cost cut on these, the ANCAP rating for Alza should be lower isn’t it? By the way, you’re saying “Perodua” and not specifically the sisters (Veloz/Alza/Xenia). Does that mean you’re actually trying to say Perodua cars in general whereas the comment by “YG” above is not?

Which car do you think will have better QC and not half a** QC just to meet the demand by end of march 2022. Later complain sana sini bunyik cengkerik.

    It is Rm20k more than Alza AV.
    But if you can look at it this way… If you own the car for 5 years, the resale value of Veloz at that point would be around RM10k more than Alza, can I say that?

    So really, it “cost” you RM10k more to own it. and for that RM10k, you get:

    1. Toyota Brand and its better after sales.
    2. 17″ wheels
    3. wireless Charger
    4. Apple car play
    5. Vehicle Telematic System
    6. Roof Rail
    7. 5 year Unlimited Mileage warranty
    8. DRL
    9. Higher and more comfy suspension
    10. Potentially get your car earlier
    11. or you just like the look and Blue colour…

    Is your choice whether the above is worth the extra. For me, is not uncommon for people to pay extra just to get a car faster…

      The chances of getting a car the next few days upon booking are high.Instead of sleeping 364 nights and wondering whether the scaled down Avanza from P2 might arrive the next morning.
      However,it all depends.Lets see P2’s sales reports 3 months down the road compared with UMW regarding the ‘scaled down Avanza Vs the “ori” Avanza.

      Not that simple. You can’t mod missing ASA features like RCTA and ACC.

      Self changing rear drums to rear discs will likely void any warranty or insurance claims related to braking issues too since there’s no way to proof or guarantee that they are done correctly.

      If you say you don’t need them, then you are not the target group for that car in the first place. The base is already targeted at you.
