Perodua Alza vs Toyota Veloz – which one sells more?

Perodua Alza vs Toyota Veloz – which one sells more?

We have covered this ‘Alza vs Veloz‘ topic pretty in-depth in Malaysia. Both essentially part of the same family, The single-spec Toyota Veloz is nearly RM20,000 more expensive than the range topping version of its sister car Perodua Alza, despite both being built at the Perodua plant in Sungai Choh, Rawang.

Paying RM95,000 for the Veloz versus RM75,500 for the Alza AV gets you the following:

  • Different looks
  • Access to Toyota service centre
  • Integrated LED DRL
  • Bigger 17 inch wheels
  • 30mm taller ride height
  • Wireless Android Auto/Apple CarPlay
  • Automatic climate control
  • Qi wireless charger
  • Telescopic adjustment for steering wheel
  • No km limit for 5-year warranty


Left: Alza sales, Right: Veloz sales

So how many people are forking out almost RM20,000 to get the above? It turns out, more than 5,000 people this year to date versus 23,390 for the Alza. This is according to the JPJ registration data which you can find on MAMPU’s data.gov.my website.

To be clear, this isn’t actually indicative of which one sells more, but maybe it is more accurate to say this reflects the ratio of how many Alza and Veloz are produced by the factory.

This is because both cars are immensely popular with long waiting lists and whatever the factory can produce, it is pretty much registered immediately.

So what we are seeing here is JPJ registration and not sales order book.

One thing’s for sure, if you are particularly tall, the telescopic steering might be essential to find a comfortable driving position. About the rest, what do you think, is it worth it paying RM20k more?

  • Considered to buy either of these. But since the EPS torque is too low for OpenPilot/BukaPilot, I changed to Corolla Altis.

    -Toyota badge
    -Access to Toyota service centre

    If you need to mention this as a plus for buying Veloz, it is probably not worth buying Veloz.

    Also, who in 2023 still buys cars based on car brand?

    It’s wrong…. there are not more difference between Alza and vioz. Wheel is 17″ for Alza, integrated led DRL is available in Alza, auto climate control and most of other futures too same as vioz.

    Talking about sales Alza is taking too long time for delivery that’s why the sale numbers is lower than vioz. Booking for Alza car is 10 times higher than vioz.

      Why do you think T stopped the booking for Veloz?
      It’s because it is canabilising into the sales of the Vios as the Veloz price is lowered significantly due to Alza.

      Come on, think about it.
      same segment 5 seater sedan priced higher than the 7 seater MPV?

  • Heard that those who bought Veloz in the early stage couldn’t stand the waiting list for Alza.

    The fact that there are many M40 who afford to buy B-segment vios or city switch to buy Veloz. Some may said why don’t take Alza which is cheaper by RM20k. People who afford to buy RM100k car is less budget concern compare to people who upgraded from Myvi, Persona who are tends to budget constraint.

    And also there are people concern about the badge, T is definitely more premium than P2. But P2 is not shortchange of reliability if compare to Prxton or other Japanese cars.

    Those who bought Alza are usually the one who are likely/wilingly belanja friends for lunch once in a while. If you bring Veloz owner, they are likely to ask split the bill :D Alza owners have more spending power, Veloz owners a bit kedekut hahaha

    toyota sales is lower because a lot of toyota owners don’t buy veloz. they prefer to go directly straight for vellfire and alphard. toyota owners high-class…

    Both Alza and Veloz have a long waiting list.
    Only Perodua does the assembly.
    Which customers will be prioritized more?

    This comparison is invalid.

    my friend sold his old alza, after loan settled, and he get cash rm10k. he use that cash as downpayment for veloz. when i know this, my heart break. i mean, he can save that 10k and buy cheaper alza with low dp and monthly expenses. and he is between b40 and almost to m40. not m40. buy veloz just to impress people to show you are not poor is not intelligent move btw. its pathetic.

          that’s not really a problem because you still get to A to B with the same car. With proper maintenance, it wont like suddenly die on you. Unless you are saying now he got kids, safety is a larger concern then yeah, okay.

    Actually both models are absolute “value for money” cars. They are both new generation cars with all the fittings, gadgets and trimmings. Don’t waste your money, the Alza is still an Alza no matter how much you spend to fit and change to look like Veloz. Be happy with your Alza it is a good car already. You actually will not get back the money you spent on the upgrades and modifications if you sell off next time whereas the Toyota carries that 20k value for a long time. I would have a Veloz and an Alza if I need 2 cars in my driveway.
