In Perodua they have been working very hard for several years to offer users the most complete and interesting products for value for money. Leader in Malaysia taking a lot of distance from other manufacturers, the firm now presents the update of one of its star models, the Bezza.
The new Bezza range has undergone significant changes in its appearance, in the design of the interior and in the possibilities of equipment to achieve a much more palatable product. It is one of the cheapest small saloons in the country and also the most generous, enjoying an excellent habitability-size ratio (508 liters of trunk in 4.15 meters in length).
Perodua has today unveiled the official Perodua Bezza facelift 2020 for the Malaysian market. The Perodua Bezza 2020 is also the first facelift for this model since its launch in the market.In terms of design, the Bezza 2020 comes with a more stylish design with sharper LED lighting. The front and rear bumpers of this new model are also more “masculine” than ever before.
Among the biggest changes to Bezza 2020 is certainly the inclusion of a better security system where all variants of the Bezza 2020 will come with ABS and EBD brake systems.Those interested in the Bezza 2020 will be able to choose a gasoline engine of a liter and 67 hp that is situated as an interesting alternative for an eminently urban use. It can be ordered with a five-speed manual transmission or with a four-speed automatic transmission. Above is the 1.3i 16v with 94 hp in combination with an automatic transmission also with four relations.
Among the equipment possibilities, keyless access and start-up, multimedia system with touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, ESP, TCS, ABS, EBD, front and side airbags, four electric windows, alloy wheels, upholstered in eco-skin, folding mirrors, start-up assistant on slopes, etc.
Bezza also uses more expensive air filters, which need to be changed within 40,000 km and 80,000 km, or every 20,000 km if you choose the Pro Care maintenance schedule (additional option) provided by Perodua.
The recommended prices of the new Perodua Bezza start at 49,980 ringgits, about € 11,045 at the current exchange rate. Among the most important rivals for this sedan are the Proton Saga and Persona, and in other markets such as you can visit at WapCar.my, also the Toyota Etios with which it shares engines.
5 Early Impressions About Bezza, Perodua’s First Sedan
Perodua managed to create a hype atmosphere for Bezza, the eleventh model company in 22 years of operation. The proof of Perodua’s first compact sedan received 4,028 bookings in just 5 days. The total includes 50% for the 1.3 Advance model, 35% for the 1.3l Premium X model and 15% for the 1.0l Automatic and Manual models.
Here are 6Early Impressions Following Bezza’s Launch:
Bezza is definitely different from what Perodua has to offer. Although based on the Axia model, it does not look like an Axia being saddled. From the outside the design team succeeded in refining Axia to make Bezza a unique sedan. It looks like a perfect sedan through a balanced proportion of body, front and back.
Broad Back Bonnet
This is one of the main reasons why Bezza is receiving such a warm welcome and much publicity. A Perodua with a perfect bonnet. Through the ‘game’ of space, the team of designers managed to hide the wide bonnet until it opened, feeling like a magic from where such a large space came from. The size of the 508 liters for a compact sedan is impressive.
From the beginning, this model was targeted at affordable prices and some aspects needed to be compromised. The interior of Bezza’s interior is exceptional compared to the Perodua Myvi. The bench type rear seats have less curves or contours to support the adult passenger body. However, the rear leg space is not limited to the size of the front seats. Just like the Axia, the steering wheel cannot be adjusted while the front passenger seat and variant 1.0 drivers are not adjustable for down and up. It feels awkward for me at 177cm.
Idle Eco System
The use of this technology is surprising. The technology that can stop the operation of the engine while idle is usually installed on cars that cost hundreds of thousands and Perodua does not think that it can offer the Advance variant for only RM50 thousand. The use of this technology is expected to exert pressure on local or foreign manufacturers such as Perodua to finally earn a 5-star ASEAN NCAP violation test score through Bezza Advance after several manufacturers achieved the highest score.
Although Bezza is a compact sedan, I can imagine a variety of functions to suit the lifestyle of the buyer. The large size of the bonnet allows the people to respond to the government’s call for a second income. The bonuses can fill merchandise for weekend deals in flea markets or bonnet sales. A variety of stock can be filled such as clothes and hangers, shoes and a small folding table. Not only that, it is ideal for use as a sharing vehicle if you are interested in using UBER, Grab or similar applications. Even now, the government is in the process of reviewing the legal license. Without even a sharing service, Bezza is ideal for taxi or car hire. Economic operations contribute to lower overhead and more net profit to owners.
