Toyota Veloz bookings at 5,200 units, debut ‘very soon’

UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) says that it has collected 5,200 bookings for the Toyota Veloz, which will “debut very soon”. Order books for the seven-seater MPV opened on June 24.

“The introduction of the Toyota Veloz will be a significant moment for us and we are confident it will be popular among Malaysians with its value for money premium offerings, advanced features and of course, the renowned Toyota quality and reliability,” said UMWT president Ravindran K.

“We are working very hard to provide the right packages for our customers. It is our way of going the ‘Extra Mile’ by giving high priority and attention to our customers’ needs through our sales and after-sales offerings,” he added.

The Veloz is of course a sister car to the new Perodua Alza, which has chalked up 51,000 bookings and 7,682 registrations as of end-August. Both are manufactured by Perodua in Sg Choh, north of the Klang Valley. Like the Alza, the new Avanza/Veloz (Veloz is a more upmarket Avanza) sits on the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA), which means that the it moves from rear-wheel drive to a more sophisticated front-wheel drive base.

In Malaysia, UMWT will only be offering the Veloz (no Avanza) and the positioning of the single-spec 1.5L MPV will be higher than the similarly-engined Alza, with extra equipment over the already-generous kit list of the Perodua, and with a corresponding higher price, of course. The estimated Veloz price is RM95,000 on-the-road without insurance, which is around RM20k more than the top Alza AV.

What are the differences between Alza and Veloz? More than meets the eye, as detailed in this post.

      At least Veloz still has some originality within it. The Alza is just a localized Xenia and you can’t deny that.

        After this “Premium Alza”, perodua plant will roll-out “Alza-sedan” (Daihatsu Vios) by next year. Semua Daihatsu originality with different badges

        • Well, still this isn’t Alza, but as Veloz. Though Vios made by Perodua, doesn’t mean that, because Perodua was unlikely to sell Vios

        Pipul buy Veloz becoz they have 20k to spare.
        Pipul buy Exora becoz they dun have 20k to spare.
        Only stupids with no 20k and no brains buy Alza. Nuff said.

    • This is exactly the same question why you have to go 5star hotel for a meal when u can get RM10 at mamak. People have a choice to enjoy their life, don’t judge. Just stay with your Kancil or whatsoever, with your mindset, you can’t afford everything in your life

    I have no idea why would anyone support this brand. It is literally a scam. Toyota wants to sell people their underspec products that Japan rejected as new. Made worse when rebadge by Perodua with even more inferior specs.

    Most people do not follow what is going on with car market and this type of shenanigans should not be allowed.

    If Toyota wanted to make it clear what cars people are buying, they would not sell underspec cars to us…

      • Yes. Instead of calling it underspec, should be called m’sian spec right? so that those who supported and bought from toyota in m’sia won’t feel hurt so bad
