The Perodua Bezza, the first ever sedan to be developed by the Malaysian automaker has been launched in its home market at a starting price of RM 37,300 (around INR 6.28 lakhs). Based on the Axia hatchback’s platform, the Bezza aims to become the best selling sedan in Malaysia.
The price tag makes it the most affordable sedan in the country, undercutting the highly successful Proton Saga. In terms of design, the Bezza is not an Axia with extruded rear fascia.
The Bezza caters to the price sensitive segment of the Malaysian car market.
The sedan adopts a fresh design which is characterized by a Celerio-like front grille, interesting headlamps that merge into the grille, understated sheet metal design, short rear overhang, and a simple rear fascia with a prominent chrome strip on the boot-lid.
Inside, the Bezza borrows its steering wheel and touchscreen infotainment system from the Axia but the dashboard design is new. The all black dashboard is split horizontally by means of a glossy black insert. Entire cabin adopts black theme.
The Axia-based sedan gets fresh design inside and outside.
The Perodua Bezza is powered by a set of two petrol engines displacing 1.0- and 1.3-litre that are available with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The base motor is tuned to deliver 67 PS and 91 Nm of torque while the bigger mill has 94 PS and 121 Nm of torque.
The Perodua Bezza would be catering to the price sensitive Malaysian customers to whom foreign products like the Honda City and VW Vento are out of reach.
