  • 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift – 5,600 units targeted to be delivered by end-January, 4,000 per month after

    The facelifted 2020 Perodua Bezza has just been launched, and at the event, the national carmaker shared its sales targets for its refreshed sedan. The company has secured around 2,000 bookings for the car since it opened order-taking on January 3.

    It also received 8,000 bookings of the pre-facelift model at the end of 2019, which were automatically converted to the new model – meaning that all-in-all, it has around 10,000 orders in the bank. The company aims to deliver 5,600 units by the end of this month alone, and a steady 4,000 units a month after that.

    This would just about edge its fiercest competitor, the Proton Saga (which was also facelifted last year), sales of which hit 3,892 units in December. Obviously, the arrival of a revamped rival will likely steal some of the Saga’s thunder, so we’ll see if the Bezza will regain the segment lead.

    It should be noted that while the two cars are expected to post similar sales figures each month, they make up different portions of their carmakers’ respective total sales. The Bezza is a moderate seller for Malaysia’s number one carmaker that regularly sells upwards of 20,000 cars a month. The Saga, meanwhile, makes up the bulk of Proton’s sales, which reached a high of 11,117 units in December.

    Perodua also revealed that around 184,000 units of the Bezza have found homes over the past three and a half years, and that the car has consistently secured between 4,000 and 4,500 units of monthly sales.

     
     
  • 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift launched in Malaysia – ASA 2.0, LED headlamps, 4 variants, from RM34,580

    After a short teaser period, the 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift is now officially launched. This comes just five days after order books were open, and three and a half years since the sedan first hit the Malaysian market. In that time, the Bezza has become a firm favourite in the entry level with 184,000 units sold, and if you’re living in urban areas, a popular workhorse for ride hailing drivers.

    Let’s start with the obvious changes. The Bezza wears a significantly bolder look, thanks to a combination of an aggressive new bumper with sharp faux vent cutouts holding the fog lamps (no fog lamps for 1.0L), slimmer headlamps that are now LEDs (standard across the range), and a grille that’s now horizontal (chrome trim for 1.3L, silver for 1.0L). No LED daytime running lights, but the optional GearUp bodykit adds LED position lights at the lower edge of the bumper.

    At the rear, the most obvious cue are the sharp cutouts on the bumpers that mirror those on the front. The Bezza’s rear underside was rather exposed in its original form, and that issue was somewhat addressed by a redesigned rear bumper (with a deeper skirt) less than a year in. Now, the tonggek look has been put to rest, for good. The rear bumper has also been extended slightly for better aerodynamics.

    The pre-facelift’s chrome strip bridging the tail lamps is now in two-tone – chrome over gloss black. The side skirts, which are standard across the board, are also in two-tone, black and body colour. The AV gets electric retractable side mirrors, while the rest get power-adjustable mirrors with turn signals. This means that for the 1.0L, there are no more signal lamps on the fenders, but the B pillars are body coloured instead of blacked out.

    As for wheels, it’s 14-inch items for the 1.0L and 15-inch two-tone alloys for the 1.3L variants. There are also two new paint options called Garnet Red (1.3L only, as seen here) and Granite Grey to join four other colours – Sugar Brown, Ocean Blue, Glittering Silver and Ivory White (solid).

    Inside, the dashboard architecture hasn’t changed, but P2 revised the full width trim’s design for an obvious new look without having to redesign the whole thing. Previously just a plain black bar in the AV, there’s now a silver upturned cradle for the head unit, which is a 2-DIN touchscreen unit for the AV (with reverse camera). The new trim also sees some surfacing around the side air con vents.

    The Bezza’s meter panel has been redesigned. Gone are the two red “ears” cupping the dials, which themselves have new faces. The illumination is white.

    Kit wise, two items stand out. One is the above-mentioned LED headlamps, which are standard across the board. This sets the Bezza FL apart from the Axia, and also its chief entry sedan rival.

    The other big ticket item is Perodua’s Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite of driver assist systems, which includes Pedestrian Detection (up to 50 km/h), Pre-Collision Warning (up to 100 km/h), Pre-Collision Braking (up to 80 km/h), Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control. First seen on the current Myvi and then the Aruz (in 2.0 form), ASA was most recently included in the Axia facelift that debut in September 2019. The Axia is the most affordable car in Malaysia with AEB and the Bezza is the most affordable sedan to be such equipped.

    ASA 2.0 is for the top AV only, but all 1.3L variants get Vehicle Stability Control (VSC, previously AV only) and ABS/EBD is standard across the board. All variants get dual front airbags. With its driver assist pack, the Bezza AV is ASEAN NCAP five-star rated.

    Other equipment highlights include keyless entry with push start (1.3L only), front corner sensors (1.3L only, reverse sensors standard for all) and a reverse camera (AV only). The range topping variant also gets leather seats with suede inserts.

    Lastly, there’s no change in the powertrain department, which has a 67 hp/91 Nm 1.0L three-cylinder VVT-i engine and a 94 hp/121 Nm 1.3L four-pot. The latter NR engine comes with Dual VVT-i and Eco Idle auto start-stop, which helps fuel efficiency go as high as a claimed 22 km/l – a strong point for the Bezza. The 1.0L can be had with a five-speed manual or four-speed auto, while the 1.3L is auto-only.

    Minor but potentially significant changes not listed in brochure include improvements to the suspension for better handling and stability, as well the rear seat angle, which goes from 23 to 27 degrees.

    The 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift is priced from RM34,580 for the 1.0L G Manual and RM36,580 for the 1.0L G Auto. The 1.3L models are auto-only – the 1.3L X is yours for RM43,980 while the AV sells for RM49,980. All prices are OTR without insurance. It’s a slight increase over the pre-facelift prices, but kit count has increased as well. The warranty is for five years or 150,000 km. There’s a full range of GearUp accessories as well, and we detail them here.

    By the way, the pre-facelift range consists of the 1.0L GXtra MT at RM34,490, the 1.0L GXtra AT at RM36,290, the 1.3L Premium X MT at RM40,090, the 1.3L Premium X AT at RM41,890 and the AV at RM47,790. That means that the new line-up has one less variant – four vs five – and the 1.3L MT has been dropped.

    “We are confident the bolder and smarter 2020 Perodua Bezza will continue to carry the torch – our aim is to sell 4,000 units monthly on average,” said Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad, president and CEO of Perodua. So, what do you think of the refreshed Bezza next to the Proton Saga, which was revamped last year? Full specs and comparisons at CarBase.my.

  • 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift: watch the launch live here

    You’ve seen the spyshots, teasers and even went through the specs and prices. The only thing left is the official launch, and that’s happening tomorrow morning (January 8), 10am. We are of course referring to the 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift, which was confirmed and opened for booking last Friday.

    We thought that Perodua was fast off the blocks last year with the Aruz – order books for the SUV opened on January 3, ahead of the launch on January 15 – but they’ve outdid themselves this year.

    Fronted by Malaysian footballers Safee Sali and Zaquan Adha (yup, we verified that it was not his twin brother Aidil Zafuan), the Bezza facelift comes three and a half years after it first hit the market. The Bezza was Perodua’s first model with a boot (it still is), and it rivals the Proton Saga in Malaysia’s entry level sedan market.

    The facelift brings with it a more assertive face, thanks to a combination of an aggressive new bumper with sharp faux vent cutouts holding the fog lamps, new shape LED headlamps and a revised grille. At the rear, the chrome strip bridging the tail lamps is now in two-tone – chrome over gloss black. The side skirts, which are standard across the board, are also in two-tone, black and body colour.

    While the dashboard architecture hasn’t changed, P2 revised the full width trim’s design for an obvious new look without having to redesign the whole thing. Previously just a plain black bar in the AV, there’s now a silver upturned cradle for the head unit, which is a 2-DIN touchscreen unit for the AV (with reverse camera). The new trim also sees some surfacing around the side air con vents.

    In the kit department, the big news is the boost in safety equipment. The top-spec AV gets Perodua’s Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite of driver assist systems, which includes Pedestrian Detection (up to 50 km/h), Pre-Collision Warning (up to 100 km/h), Pre-Collision Braking (up to 80 km/h), Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control.

    First seen on the current Myvi and then the Aruz (in 2.0 form), ASA was most recently included in the Axia facelift, so it’s no surprise that it makes an appearance here. ASA aside, ABS/EBD is standard across the board while VSC is standard on 1.3L models.

    Safety goodies aside, the Bezza will get LED headlamps as standard across the board. Other highlights from the released flyer include a white illuminated meter panel (the design is also new) and keyless entry with push start (1.3L only).

    Elsewhere, the 1.3L gets gloss black and chrome trim on the front grille (gloss black and silver on 1.0L) and 15-inch alloys (14-inch on the 1.0L). Rear parking sensors are standard for all, but front corner sensors are for the 1.3L only. Apart from ASA 2.0, AV-exclusive items include retractable electric side mirrors with turn signals (power-adjustable mirrors now standard across the range) and a reverse camera.

    We’re expecting the powertrains – a 67 hp/91 Nm 1.0L three-cylinder and a 94 hp/121 Nm 1.3L four-pot – to remain unaltered for the facelift. The 1.0L VVT-i can be had either with a five-speed manual or four-speed auto, while the Dual VVT-i 1.3L is auto-only. One main selling point is the good fuel efficiency, which is up to a claimed 22 km/l thanks to Eco Idle, which is auto start-stop.

    As for colours, there will be two new options called Garnet Red (1.3L only) and Granite Grey to join four other colours. The Bezza is now priced from RM34,580 for the 1.0L G Manual and RM36,580 for the 1.0L G Auto. The 1.3L models are auto-only – the 1.3L X is yours for RM43,980 while the AV sells for RM49,980, all OTR without insurance. It’s a slight increase over the pre-facelift, but kit count has increased.

    By the way, the pre-facelift range consists of the 1.0L GXtra MT at RM34,490, the 1.0L GXtra AT at RM36,290, the 1.3L Premium X MT at RM40,090, the 1.3L Premium X AT at RM41,890 and the AV at RM47,790. That means that the new line-up has one less variant – four vs five – and the 1.3L MT has been dropped.

    Remember to join us for our exclusive livestream of the 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift launch, which will be hosted by Hafriz Shah and paultan.org/BM‘s Hazril Hafiz. Once again, it’s 10am tomorrow morning, so bring your earphones to work.

  • 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift – new teaser videos out

    Perodua has released two more teaser videos of the 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift, which official launch is just around the corner. This time around, the face of Malaysia and Kedah footballer Zaquan Adha is used (the other face of the car is Safee Sali) with the lines ‘Now is the time to go further’ and ‘Now is the time to see things differently’.

    The first clip shows the Bezza’s newly aggressive face light up in the dark – you can see the new LED headlamps in action here – but it actually is trying to promote the Bezza’s good fuel efficiency, which is up to a claimed 22 km/l. Its modern 1.3L Dual VVT-i engine (VVT-i for the 1.0L) comes with Eco Idle, which is auto start-stop to further reduce FC.

    The Bezza’s FC is known to be very good, which is why the A-segment sedan is very popular among ride hailing drivers. We’re expecting the powertrains – a 67 hp/91 Nm 1.0L three-cylinder and a 94 hp/121 Nm 1.3L four-pot – to remain unaltered for the facelift. The 1.0L can be had either with a five-speed manual or four-speed auto, while the 1.3L is auto-only.

    The second clip shows the Bezza facelift moving in the dark. Once again, the new LED headlamps shine bright here, and as the car makes a turn, we see the rear LED signatures as well. Both features are unavailable in the Bezza’s chief rival and P2 is choosing to highlight them. The LED headlamps are new for the facelift, and are standard across the Bezza board. This feature also sets the Bezza apart from the recently facelifted Axia.

    Eyes aside, the big news about the Bezza FL is the boost in safety equipment. The top-spec AV gets Perodua’s Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite of driver assist systems, which includes Pedestrian Detection (up to 50 km/h), Pre-Collision Warning (up to 100 km/h), Pre-Collision Braking (up to 80 km/h), Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control.

    First seen on the current Myvi and then the Aruz (in 2.0 form), ASA was most recently included in the Axia facelift, so it’s no surprise that it makes an appearance here. ASA aside, ABS/EBD is standard across the board while VSC is standard on 1.3L models.

    Prior to this, the teaser video that had Safee Sali in it shed light on the design changes for the facelift. There’s the car’s new face, which features an aggressive new bumper with sharp faux vent cutouts holding the fog lamps, new shape headlamps and a revised grille.

    At the rear, we see that the chrome strip that bridges the tail lamps is now in two-tone – chrome over gloss black. The side skirts, which are standard across the board, are also in two-tone, black and body colour.

    We also get to see the A-segment sedan’s interior. While the dashboard architecture hasn’t changed, P2 revised the full width trim’s design, for an obvious new look without having to redesign the whole thing. Previously just a plain black bar in the AV, there’s now a silver upturned cradle for the head unit, which is a 2-DIN touchscreen unit for the AV (with reverse camera). The new trim also sees some surfacing around the side air con vents.

    Other highlights from the released flyer include a white illuminated meter panel (the design is also new) and keyless entry with push start (1.3L only).

    Elsewhere in the kit department, the 1.3L gets gloss black and chrome trim on the front grille (gloss black and silver on 1.0L) and 15-inch alloys (14-inch on the 1.0L). Rear parking sensors are standard for all, but front corner sensors are for the 1.3L only. Apart from ASA 2.0, AV-exclusive items include retractable electric side mirrors with turn signals (power-adjustable mirrors now standard across the range) and a reverse camera.

    As for colours, there will be two new options called Garnet Red (1.3L only) and Granite Grey to join four other colours. The Bezza is now priced from RM34,580 for the 1.0L G Manual and RM36,580 for the 1.0L G Auto.

    By the way, the pre-facelift range consists of the 1.0L GXtra MT at RM34,490, the 1.0L GXtra AT at RM36,290, the 1.3L Premium X MT at RM40,090, the 1.3L Premium X AT at RM41,890 and the AV at RM47,790. That means that the new line-up has one less variant – four vs five – and the 1.3L MT has been dropped. Not long now.

  • 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift specs, price confirmed – now open for booking, 4 variants, from RM34,580

    Following the leaks of the 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift’s brochure and price list yesterday, P2 has officially opened order books for the car, and released an official teaser video. Featuring Malaysian footballer Safee Sali, the 15-second clip offers glimpses of the new design changes.

    It starts off by showing the face, which features an aggressive new bumper with sharp faux vent cutouts holding the fog lamps, new shape LED headlamps and a revised grille.

    The video then goes to the rear, where we can see the familiar Bezza and Dual VVT-i emblems. However, the thick chrome strip that bridges the tail lamps is now in two-tone – chrome over gloss black.

    We then get to see the A-segment sedan’s interior. While the dashboard architecture hasn’t changed, P2 revised the full width trim’s design, for an obvious new look without having to redesign the whole thing.

    Previously just a plain black bar in the AV, there’s now a silver upturned cradle for the head unit, which is a 2-DIN touchscreen unit for the AV (with reverse camera), as predicted. The new trim also sees some surfacing around the side air con vents. The video then pans to the rear seats – is the bench slightly more sculptured than before or is it just the camera effect? We’ll see.

    The next scene is one showing the two-tone side skirts (body colour and black, standard for all) as well as the dual-tone 15-inch alloys on 1.3L models. “Smart Design. Enhanced Styling,” the video ends.

    As for kit, the big news is the addition of Perodua’s Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite of driver assist systems, which includes Pedestrian Detection (up to 50 km/h), Pre-Collision Warning (up to 100 km/h), Pre-Collision Braking (up to 80 km/h), Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control. First seen on the current Myvi and then the Aruz (in 2.0 form), ASA was most recently included in the Axia facelift that debut in September 2019. So, it’s no surprise that it makes an appearance here, in the top AV spec.

    There’s no airbag info in the brochure (Axia continues to have two), but ABS/EBD is standard across the board, and VSC is standard on 1.3L models, which are the X and AV (1.0L G in MT or AT is the other option).

    Also new to the model are LED headlamps, something that sets it apart from the Axia. Surprisingly, the Myvi-style headlamps are standard across the board – even the base 1.0L gets it. Other highlights from the flyer (now high res, click below) include a white illuminated meter panel (the design is also new) and keyless entry with push start (1.3L only).

    Elsewhere in the kit department, the 1.3L gets gloss black and chrome trim on the front grille (gloss black and silver on 1.0L) and 15-inch alloys (14-inch on the 1.0L). Rear parking sensors are standard for all, but front corner sensors are for the 1.3L only. Apart from ASA 2.0, AV-exclusive items include retractable electric side mirrors with turn signals (power-adjustable mirrors now standard across the range) and a reverse camera.

    As for colours, the 2020 Bezza facelift will have two new options called Garnet Red (1.3L only) and Granite Grey to join four other colours. There should be no change in the powertrain department, which has a 67 hp/91 Nm 1.0L three-cylinder VVT-i engine and a 94 hp/121 Nm 1NR-VE 1.3L four-pot. FC goes as high as a claimed 22 km/l with Eco Idle auto start-stop.

    The Bezza is now priced from RM34,580 for the 1.0L G Manual and RM36,580 for the 1.0L G Auto. The 1.3L models are auto-only – the 1.3L X is yours for RM43,980 while the AV sells for RM49,980. All prices are OTR without insurance. It’s a slight increase over the pre-facelift prices, but kit count has increased as well.

    By the way, the pre-facelift range consists of the 1.0L GXtra MT at RM34,490, the 1.0L GXtra AT at RM36,290, the 1.3L Premium X MT at RM40,090, the 1.3L Premium X AT at RM41,890 and the AV at RM47,790.

  • 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift brochure, price list leaked – ASA 2.0, standard LED headlamps, from RM34,580

    Click to enlarge

    Details and first images of the 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift are out and circulating online, courtesy of what appears to be an official brochure distributed by P2 sales staff. The “Bolder. Smarter” refreshed A-segment sedan – which was launched back in July 2016 and mildly updated in April 2017 – comes with significantly more aggressive looks as well as some new equipment.

    Let’s start with the new kit. The Bezza facelift is the latest model to come with Perodua’s Advance Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite of driver assist systems.

    First seen on the current Myvi and then the Aruz (in 2.0 form), ASA was most recently included in the Axia facelift that debut in September 2019. So, it’s no surprise that it makes an appearance in the Bezza, in the range topping AV spec.

    Click to enlarge

    ASA 2.0 includes Pre-Collision Warning (PCW), Pre-Collision Braking (PCB), Front Departure Alert (FDA) and Pedal Misoperation Control (PMC), all working with the assistance of a stereo camera located at the top of the windscreen. There’s no airbag info in the brochure (Axia continues to have two), but ABS/EBD is standard across the board, and VSC is standard on 1.3L models, which are the X and AV (1.0L G in MT or AT is the other option).

    Also new to the model, which is very popular among ride hailing drivers, are LED headlamps, something that sets it apart from the Axia. Surprisingly, the Myvi-style headlamps are standard across the board – even the base 1.0L gets it. Other highlights in the flyer include a white illuminated meter panel (the design is also new) and keyless entry with push start (1.3L only).

    Elsewhere in the kit department, the 1.3L gets gloss black and chrome trim on the front grille (gloss black and silver on 1.0L) and 15-inch alloys (14-inch on the 1.0L). Rear parking sensors are standard for all, but front corner sensors are for the 1.3L only. Apart from ASA 2.0, AV-exclusive items include retractable electric side mirrors with turn signals (non electric retract for the rest) and a reverse camera.

    The latter should mean that the AV will be the only spec with a 2-DIN touchscreen head unit. The other variants should get a factory unit with integrated design. As for colours, the 2020 Bezza facelift will have a new option called Garnet Red to join five other colours. There appears to be another new colour in the brochure, but it’s not clear what it’s called.

    Looks wise, as seen from spyshots of the car leaving P2’s Sg Choh base, the latest Bezza comes with very aggressive front and rear bumpers that has prominent faux vent cutouts. With reshaped headlamps (LEDs too of course) and front grille, facelifted cars will be easy to spot from the pre-facelift. Two-tone side skirts are standard for all variants.

    There should be no change in the powertrain department. The 1KR-VE 1.0 litre three-cylinder VVT-i engine makes 67 hp/91 Nm, while the 1NR-VE 1.3 litre does 94 hp/121 Nm. Fuel economy is as good as a claimed 22 km/l with Eco Idle auto start-stop.

    As for prices, the Bezza is now priced from RM34,580 for the 1.0L G Manual and RM36,580 for the 1.0L G Auto. The 1.3L models are auto-only – the 1.3L X is yours for RM43,980 while the AV sells for RM49,980. All prices are OTR without insurance. It’s a slight increase over the pre-facelift prices, but kit has increased as well.

    By the way, the pre-facelift range consists of the 1.0L GXtra MT at RM34,490, the 1.0L GXtra AT at RM36,290, the 1.3L Premium X MT at RM40,090, the 1.3L Premium X AT at RM41,890 and the AV at RM47,790. That means that the new line-up has one less variant – four vs five – and the 1.3L MT has been dropped.

    The launch should be just around the corner now, so stay tuned!
