Here to fight the recently-updated Proton Saga, the new 2020 Perodua Bezza is here to defend Perodua’s domination in the A-segment sedan market.
Let’s take a close look at what has Perodua added to the new Bezza.
Up front, the new Bezza gains a redesigned front end, featuring sharper-looking LED headlamps (previously halogen headlamps) flanking an equally new grille.
The front bumper has also been redesigned to incorporate an “X” motif, and is surrounded by a pair of prominent front fog light surround on each end.
Towards the sides, the new Bezza gains dual-tone side skirts for all variants, plus the inclusion of 15-inch dual-tone alloy wheels on 1.3-litre variants.
As for the rear end of the new Bezza, it gets a revamped rear bumper featuring a deeper rear diffuser and prominent rear trim pieces and a new chrome and black strip that connects both tail lights.
Changes are more subtle inside – although the dashboard design has remained largely identical, the new Bezza loses much of the glossy black finishing.
In its place, the new Bezza gains a new silver trim that is reminiscent of the Aruz.
The new Bezza also gains an updated meter cluster, a new head unit (still no Android Auto or Apple CarPlay) and new red stitching on the seats (AV variant).
Perodua has also added two new colours for the Bezza - Garnet Red (1.3L models only) and Granite Grey. These 2 new colours will join Sugar Brown, Ocean Blue, Glittering Silver, and Ivory White as colour options for the new Bezza.
As for safety, Perodua has expanded stability control in all 1.3-litre variants of the new Bezza, including on the 1.3 X variant; it was previously limited to the 1.3 Advance.
Similar to the updated Axia, the top-spec Bezza 1.3 AV also gains a new reverse camera.
Furthermore, what makes the new Bezza enticing is the inclusion of Perodua’s Advanced Safety Assist 2.0 (ASA 2.0) ADAS suite on the 1.3 AV AT variant, which includes Pre-Collision Warning, Pre-Collision Braking, Front Departure Alert, and Pedal Misoperation Control.
