Nearly 20,000 bookings, or 65 percent of the 30,000 total bookings collected for the all-new 2022 Perodua Alza are for the highest specifications AV variant, said Perodua President and CEO, Dato' Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
The all-new 2022 Perodua Alza is available in three variants:

All variants are powered by the same aluminum block 2NR-VE 1.5-litre naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine. The new Dual VVT-i engine replaces the previous Alza’s 3SZ-VE DVVT engine.
The engine is shared with the Perodua Myvi, Toyota Vios, and Toyota Yaris – the latter two with a different FE suffix for the engine code – and makes 106 PS at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm at 4,200 rpm.
