How fuel efficient is the 2020 Perodua Bezza?

The 2020 Perodua Bezza made its debut with two carry-forward engines, 1.3-litre engine and 1.0-litre engine. We already know the Bezza is well know for its fuel efficiency but there weren't any official real world numbers. So, we decided to take the Bezza AV 1.3-litre variant for a spin to test out just how much the updated A-segment sedan's fuel consumption. The Bezza’s 1.3-litre DVVT-i petrol engine produces 95 PS and 121 Nm.

Eco Idle makes the already fuel efficient Perodua Bezza even more efficient

The Perodua Bezza has an inherently efficient engine - a unit from the NR family of engines - which is shared with various Toyota models and boasts the use of dual VVT-i, Teflon coating for the pistons, and iridium spark plugs.Pardon the technical stuff but what those mean is that the engine is able to sip fuel sparingly. On top on those, the Perodua Bezza comes with Eco Idle which is Perodua’s term for start-stop system. It is the cheapest car on sale to
