Perodua has rolled out an additional variant of the Alza – the Alza SR – which will be in the showrooms from Thursday, February 2, 2012. According to Perodua MD Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh, this new variant (the ‘SR’ is said to stand for ‘Smart Ride’) will make it even more affordable for Malaysian consumers looking to upgrade to a more spacious vehicle.
“It is aimed at young families who want a flexible compact MPV with sedan features. The Alza SR is indeed ideal for those who want the extra space for daily usage as well as for balik kampung trips,” he said, adding that the company is offering this more affordable variant to meet the expectations of the customers in line with Perodua’s slogan “You Matter Most” in tandem with the brand statement of “Building Cars, People First”.
The Alza SR is available for booking at all its 178 showrooms nationwide and is priced between RM53,013.50 and RM56,513.50 (on-the-road in Peninsular Malaysia), depending on specifications. Since its launch, the cheapest Alza variant (GX manual) has been priced at RM55,503.50; now there’s an even cheaper variant.
Buyers can order the new Alza SR in one of 3 colours: Glittering Silver, Ivory White and a new colour, Mystical Purple. For customers who prefer the mounted handbrake feature, Perodua has also made it available in the automatic variant of the Alza SR. Also installed are separate front seats instead of the bench type in the automatic variant.
The Alza is the most popular MPV in Malaysia with 81,000 units sold to date since its launch in November 2009. Perodua expects to sell about 400 units of the Alza SR monthly which will account for around 13% of the model’s sales.
