This full bells and whistles trim retails for RM 75,500  (on-the-road without insurance, with sales tax) i.e. RM 7,500 dearer than the mid-spec H. This price tag makes the new Alza the second costliest Perodua after the top-spec Aruz, which costs RM 77,900.

    On the mechanical front, the range-topping AV remains identical to the mid-spec model.

    What could have been better with the 2022 Perodua Alza AV?

    While the new Alza AV is a well-loaded offering along with refreshed styling, we feel Perodua could have provided it with some more equipment like Apple CarPlay connectivity, ambient lighting or bigger 17-inch wheels 

    Verdict

    If you want your MPV to have feel-good features and added safety, stop thinking about the H and X, and go with the top-spec Alza AV.
