Alza Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Alza

The best aspect of Perodua Alza is the amount of space on the inside, especially in the front and second row. The seats are well supportive and wide enough to seat three people with ease in the second row, and thanks to the tall boy design, the headroom too is best-in-class.

The Perodua Alza comes with a slightly softer suspension, which is very helpful in making the overall ride quality very comfortable. Adding to more comfortable in-cabin experience, the cooling from AC vents in all the three rows is excellent as well.

The Perodua Alza has one unique feature of premium solar and security window film, something which is usually present only in high-end luxury cars. This feature tries to keep the interior cabin of the car quite cool, making this feature very handy, especially in peak summer conditions.

Things We Dont Like in Alza

The Perodua Alza focuses more on function over form, and while the overall styling is decent, it doesn’t feel eye-catching enough to generate interest among the audience towards the way it looks. The boxy looks do manage to maximise space on the inside, however, they also make the vehicle look a bit pale.

Just like the exterior design, even the interior cabin layout is very simple and fails to catch one’s fancy. The centrally positioned instrument console does make the cabin feel dated, and so is the steering wheel and central console design. Even the list of features is limited as well.

While the Perodua Alza impresses with the space in first and second rows, the boot space in the car is almost negligible. Even the third row of seats is best suited for small kids only, thanks to very low knee room.

Recent Updates of Alza

Perodua Alza, the seven-seater MPV famous for its simple looks and everyday practicality, is a very popular vehicle among the masses. The Alza is powered by a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine that generates a power output of 102 hp and a maximum torque of 136 Nm. The engine is mated to a manual transmission for the base variant and to an automatic transmission for the other 3 variants. The Alza has a very basic layout for its interior but is equipped with standard safety features like dual front airbags, the anti-lock braking system with EBD and parking sensors. Alza might not be stylish and luxurious, but it is indeed a  utilitarian family mover, which has, in turn, made it a feasible choice for the people. According to the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA), April proved to be a very profitable month for the Perodua with more than 22,100 units sold of which 1100 belonged to the Alza, which is a record in itself.

Alza Overview

In the global markets, the Perodua Alza might not be a big name, but here in Malaysia, it has turned out to be one of the trusted and biggest selling names in the segment of MPVs since its inception. The compact MPV, in its current second generation guise, has tried to keep aback its minor issues and is positioned right at the top of Perodua’s lineup as its flagship product in the country. With its compact dimensions coupled with seating layout for seven passengers, the Alza has been a boon to all big families with small pockets, with this budget MPV being the highest selling MPV of Malaysia being a testimony to this fact.

Perodua Alza Interior & Features

On the inside, it’s disheartening to say that the Perodua Alza is as Spartan and boring looking as it is on the outside. The overall design theme is purely tilted towards the aspect functionality, with a lot of basic-ness to it. The basic three-spoke steering wheel does come with steering mounted controls for audio and Bluetooth. The centrally mounted instrument consoles have never been a good looking thought, and in the Alza too, it looks odd. The horizontal and slim layout for the console makes the process of reading the speeds and other data less legible while on the go. The audio system is fully finished in the silver garnish, which surely adds in some visual appeal but the overdose of silver is purely subjective and might look odd to some.

Apart from the audio system, the controls for AC and gear lever are positioned beside each other, which does make them ergonomic but they do look oddly placed. The Alza is offered in both the options of a dual tone black and beige cabin and an all-black cabin with maroon inserts, and in our opinion, it is the latter which is the better looking out of the two.

In terms of features, the Alza, being an entry-level compact MPV, misses out on a lot of bells and whistles from the cars from a segment above and is equipped with only the basics like power windows, a music system with support for USB, Aux-in and Bluetooth and remote central locking. However, one could opt for an optional touchscreen infotainment system which comes integrated with reverse camera and navigation, as well as an optional roof-mounted monitor for rear passengers, which in this car, are the only premium features one could get.

However, the one area where the Alza scores heavily is in the storage spaces – this compact MPV gets many of them. You do get small storage spaces on the door pockets, front dashboard, bottle holders and an underseat tray which are accommodating enough to store many of your small knick-knacks.

Alza Exterior

On the outside, Perodua has tried to make the Alza look desirable, but somehow, the effort feels half-hearted. This second generation model does look better than the first ever model which used to look boxy, however, the car looks like a mash-up of a cute looking hatchback and a boxy and functional MPV, which looks not so impressive.

Take for instance, the frontal stance. The Alza has got a cute looking face of a hatchback with a very minimalistic grille whose only grace-saving feature is the silver garnish below it. The spearhead-shaped headlamps positioned on its upper corners make this front fascia look like that of the previous generation Honda Jazz but in a simpler manner.

The side profile of the Perodua Alza, like many MPVs, lack any drama and looks very functional with a boxy profile, with a straight character line flowing from the back of the headlight to the C-pillar is the only design element here. The cutesy looking front end is then wrongly complemented with the boxy profile of the rear end, with the vertical clear lens tail lamp unit and a thick black design element at the rear hatch trying to add in some visual appeal to the otherwise boring looking car. However, Perodua has tried its best to add in some sportiness to the car with the front, side and rear skirting as well as the rear spoiler.

Perodua Alza Ride & Handling

MPVs are purely about comfort for its passengers rather than scoring high on outright performance, and the Perodua Alza, even after being an entry-level MPV, scores high in this aspect. Sure, the third row is tight on space and best suited for kids only, but then, one does get a lot of folding configurations, which include all the seats, including that of the driver as well. This makes the Alza very much configurable for all kinds of driving and load carrying arrangements. The ride quality is on the suppler side, thanks to the presence of 15-inch wheels.

Alza Engine & Fuel Consumption

For the Alza, Perodua has fitted in the largest engine in its lineup – the four cylinders 1.5-litre petrol. The engine is good enough to make out a maximum power output of 104 hp and a peak torque output of 136 Nm, figures which are good enough to propel this small MPV with ease even on full load, thanks to its low kerb weight of 1160 kg.

One does get two transmission options in the Alza – the standard five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic, both of which are good enough to make it feel at home both in the city as well as highways.

Perodua Alza Braking & Safety

Equipping an entry level car with high-class safety features is not too easy, considering the cost-conscious customers it targets. Still, the Perodua Alza feels appreciable for being equipped with at least the basics such as dual front airbags, ABS and EBD and parking sensors.

 

Alza Verdict

The Perodua Alza is one compact MPV which does score high on practicality and functionality, with the decent performance from the 1.5-litre petrol engine and the variety of seating configurations it offers. Sure, the overall styling and interior layout make this car look too entry-level and boring, but then, an MPV is all about preferring function over form, which is where the Alza hits the sweet spot. And for the price at which it is being offered, it is simply a great deal. No wonders then why it sells like hotcakes!

    The Alza is one of the best MPVs around and for good reason. Perodua has found the perfect balance between size, space, comfort and price. Except for maybe the looks, it is hard to fault the Alza. Which is probably why it is so popular! Read More

    The Alza is an amazing practical family car. After more than 50,000 km, our Alza is still going strong with no signs of slowing down. The kids love the roof-mounted display which keeps them occupied for long journeys. Engine performance is average, could do with more power. Read More

    I love travelling with my kids and since they are growing, I had to get a bigger car. The Perodua Alza is what I ended up getting. It is a very practical car with many little features and the various seating configurations is the best part. The 1.5-litre engine is adequate, I would not call it a great performer. For Read More

    If you are looking for an affordable family MPV, the Alza from Perodua is a great choice. The versatile seating arrangements are great for various situations. I am not really a fan of the central instrument cluster, but for the price it is acceptable. When the Alza is fully loaded, the engine sometimes feels inadequate but in most situations, it Read More
