Peruvian is thrilled with the new MPV that will replace Alza which was previously rumored to launch early next month? We’ve just seen an internal memo regarding the seven-seater MPV that has only been distributed to Perodua dealers known by the project code D27A, revealing some important details about the new model.
As of yet, there is no actual launch date for the MPV, but the document states that from May 16, Perodua dealers were instructed to adopt the new model and be ready to remove the old Alza test drive units from the showroom.
So this new generation Alza could be launched next month, and there are rumors that it will launch on June 26th.
The memo confirms that the new MPV will be offered in three variants, starting with the base model 1.5LX CVT (variant code BP5XZ), the intermediate variant 1.5LH CVT (BP5HZ) and the top variant 1.5L AV CVT (BP5VZ). )
The name of this variant also confirms that this new generation MPV will not get a 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo engine like the Ativa, will instead use a 1.5-liter NA engine and will be matched with an automatic CVT gearbox, without manual options. Gearbox variant.
The new Alza is seen to be offered in five different body colors featuring a solid color and four metallic colors. The only solid color that Ivory WhiteTogether Glossy silver And new color Elegant black Recommended for three variants, while color Copper red And Vintage Brown For H and AV variants only.
No indication of price was given in the memo. But based on our previous reports, there are rumors that the new generation Alza Base X variant will be sold at a starting price of RM69k. So the higher variant model will definitely be sold at a more expensive price – the 1.5H is said to sell for around RM74k, while the AV has reached RM80k.
If the price is true, then this new generation model seems to be entering a higher segment as the previous generation model Alza sold for RM49,944 to RM60,525. However, the price is on the road without insurance including SST tax exemption. With 100% SST discount, Alza was previously sold at RM51,490 to RM62,690.
Due to the high price, the price of this MPV will overlap with other Perodua models. It is more expensive than the Ativa with a starting price of RM61,500, as well as the Perodua Aruz seven-seater SUV.
However, there is a huge advantage over the new generation Alza Aruz. Because it is a twin of the new generation Toyota Avanza and Daihatsu Xenia that was launched in Indonesia, based on the latest Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) front-drive platform, compared to the Aruze which still uses a structural chassis. Ladder frame Rear wheel drive.
So it is obviously bigger than the previous generation Alza and it is expected to have a range of much more advanced safety technology including six-airbags, as well as a driving assistance system with Level 2 autonomous driving capability.
In Indonesia, Avanza and Xenia have received a 2NR-VE 1.5-liter four-cylinder NA dual VVT-i engine with a D-CVT gearbox, which looks like a Perodua Maivi Facelift 2022. Yet unlike the Myvi which produces 102 PS / 138 Nm, the same engine for this MPV version gets a tuning that allows it to produce 106 PS at a point of 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm of maximum torque at a point of 4,200 rpm.
In addition to this high price, the name ‘Alja’ is likely to no longer be used in the new generation MPV. Recently, Perodua has been registered with the Malaysian Intellectual Property Corporation (MyIPO) under the names ‘Troj’ and ‘Nexis’. Both names were filed under Class 12 and Class 37, indicating that they were placed in the car-related section.
