DNGA-based, next-gen 2022 Perodua Alza could launch at the end of this year 01

Having made its debut in 2009, the Perodua Alza is one of the oldest models on sale in Malaysia currently. But that may not be for too long more as its expected replacement - codenamed the D27A - could be launched as early as the end of this year.

Whether or not it makes its scheduled launch is dependent on a variety of factors, an improved Covid-19 situation being one of them. Should it meet its production schedule, then it will launch at the end of this year as a 2022 model.

Not much is known about the Alza replacement just yet, but it's highly likely that the MPV will sit on the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) platform, possibly merging with the Toyota Avanza.

As previously reported, the next-gen Avanza will be developed with mild-hybrid technology in mind. Should this technology-sharing happen, we could see Perodua's first hybrid model in the upcoming D27A.

Still, time will tell - so stick around on WapCar.my to be the first to know.
