It is now here, the new Perodua Alza, the first and latest perodua mpv production car, which have been developed since early 2008 where we reported that it comes from the Toyota Passo Sette model previously. Come on, read after the jump for further information.
This D46T project is the first perodua mpv production model made from Malaysia, although it is only a rebadge version of the toyota model. The Alza looks is better than the original one, which trumped our eyes by the first time viewing. It is far sleeker compared to the Myvi design based on Toyota Passo which clearly shown Passo is greater looking one.
What’s with ‘Alza’ name? Why Alza? Should it come from the Alphard+Advanza name? Nope, Alza means ‘to rise’ in Spanish. This symbolized the newly rising up model by Perodua.
Talking about the Perodua Alza price, this small MPV bring a really nice price tag though Proton worked hard with their Exora Basic to reduce the price. It is cheaper than Exora, price tag based on above table.

Perodua revealed that the sportier version, maybe Special Edition will be introduce in March 2010, where it comes with full custom bodykit, GPS Navigation system, and a reverse camera. Booking is now available for premium and auto transmission.
Talking about the 1.5L engine, how power is that actually? Our crew has test drive the car since the day of launching with full capacity of 6 person on car, and the engine is quite good with excellent speed car go easily to 140kmh. But however, one fact rise up when the torque or rev ranged us time to speed, but good enough to supress excessive vibrations and the engine sound remaining cool.
Perodua Alza fuel consumption was claimed by Perodua to run 12.7 km per liter with automatic transmisson model and 15.5 km per liters with the manual one. The Alza’s multi-info display menter intergrated with the center dashboard.
From overall, Alza offer a lot of space inside as long as you are not using it on purpose for an MPV. At our point, this can be an alternative to sedans who want something a bit more space than Myvi, with a bigger bootspace. However, if you are about to think to find the alternative MPV to Exora or any other MPV, you will have to think twice if you really need to fit in full adults loaded to your car.
