Perodua has confirmed that the next-generation Perodua Alza (D27A) will be their next model launch that is happening in 2022.

Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad, Perodua President and CEO said at a Perodua Myvi media event that the company is studying when is the best time to introduce the next-gen Alza but it is confirmed to be in 2022.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1670926945518-0'); });

The production line at Perodua’s manufacturing plant in Rawang will undergo retooling (upgrading the machinery) to cater to the new Alza in January 2022.

Production of the current-gen Alza will end in December 2021. Dato’ Zainal added that there is still a strong demand for their 7-seater with monthly sales of around 1,500 units.

Although Perodua chief stopped short at revealing the technical details, we can expect the new Alza to be based on the new Toyota Avanza and Daihatsu Xenia.

Both cars ride on the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) platform and are front-wheel drive only.

In Indonesia, the Avanza and Xenia get two naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine options – 1NR-VE 1.3-litre (98 PS/121 Nm) and 2NR-VE 1.5-litre (106 PS/137 Nm). Both are paired to either a D-CVT automatic transmission or a 5-speed manual.

Looking at Perodua’s recent strategy of throwing in Perodua Smart Drive Assist ADAS in their new Ativa and Myvi facelift, we expect the local carmaker to do the same in their next-gen family car.

The outgoing Alza is priced from RM49,944 to RM60,525. Expect the replacement model to carry a higher price tag with all the advanced features factored in.

So, there you have it folks, excited for what’s to come? Meanwhile, watch our 2022 Perodua Myvi 1.5 facelift review video here:
