Perodua kicked off the new decade with their new 2020 Perodua Bezza facelift. Now with a more aggressive exterior styling, improved features but at a higher price tag.

Major highlights done to the styling of the facelift Bezza include LED reflector headlamps that are standard across the board, sharper bumpers and upsized 15-inch dual-tone alloy wheel design for the 1.3 Advance variant. We’ve broken down in detail every change done to the new Bezza compared to the old car which you can read here.

On the inside, families and e-hailing riders would be glad to know that the rear seats now have more recline angle thanks to the new sculpture for a more comfortable seating posture.

Safety features on the Bezza facelift are now class-leading with Perodua A.S.A 2.0 with pedestrian detection now available on the range-topping 1.3 Advanced variants. Electronic Stability Control is also now offered on all 1.3-litre models. Although airbag count remains at 2 – which is par for the course.

Engine options are carried over from before, the 1KR-VE 1.0-litre 3-cylinder VVT-i with 68 PS/91 Nm and a 1NR-VE 1.3-litre 4-cylinder Dual VVT-i with 95 PS and 121 Nm. Both petrol engines are paired to a 4-speed automatic while the 1.0-litre has the option for a 5-speed manual.

Only the 1.3 Advance variant comes with the Eco Idle automatic start/stop system which deters us from picking this variant

While segment rival, the Proton Saga went on to expand its feature list while lowering the price tag, the selling price of the Bezza facelift has gone up across the range.

It now starts at RM 34,580 for the 1.0 G (MT) while the 1.3 Advance (AT) goes for RM 49,980 – the latter you can have a Proton Persona or Perodua Myvi, both of which are one segment larger, for the same price! We’ve broken it down for you and see which is the perfect car for you.
