Perodua Bezza D63D (2016-Present)

The Perodua Bezza has been officially launched on 21 July 2016, with official prices ranging from RM37k to RM51k. The name Bezza is derived from the Malay word beza, which means different.

The Bezza is an in-house effort (there's no existing Daihatsu/Toyota model) with 95% local content, and took RM300 million to develop. Based on the Axia's platform, and shares the same wheelbase length as the Axia.

Also similar to the Axia is the width (1,620 mm) and height (1,510 mm). But with the addition of a very big boot (at 508 litres, it's bigger than the boot of the Vios and there's a full size spare beneath), the Bezza is 510 mm longer than the Axia, at 4,150 mm.

It comes in five variants, with two engine options - 1.0L and 1.3L. Both can be had with a five-speed manual gearbox or four-speed automatic transmission. The top-spec 1.3 Advance is auto-only.

The 1KR-VE 1.0 litre three-cylinder engine is related to the engine in the Axia, but not identical. It gets VVT-i variable valve timing, a higher compression ratio, reduced friction and improved combustion. It produces 67 hp at 6,000 rpm and 91 Nm at 4,400 rpm. The Bezza's 1.3 litre NR Dual VVT-i engine makes 90 hp and 117 Nm.

The six available colours are Lava Red, Ebony Black, Glittering Silver, Solid Ivory White, Sugar Brown and Ocean Blue. The car comes with a five-year or 100,000 km warranty.

1.3 Advance (2016)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 13.5 km/litre (7.4 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 1,000 km/month
    - The Perodua Bezza 1.3 Advance is a very well-equipped car for the price, with VSC, faux leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with multimedia controls, a touchscreen multimedia head unit, USB charging ports, keyless entry with push start, etc.
    - The Toyota-supplied 1.3L engine is probably the most refined in a Perodua yet - it's quiet, runs smoothly when paired with the 4-speed automatic transmission, is punchy enough at low revs and has decent enough grunt going up to highway speeds. This coupled with the Bezza's light weight make it reminiscent of the Kelisa in sedan form - but much more refined, and much more capable.
    - Suspension is on the stiffer side but is rather well sorted.
    - Convenient storage hooks and Smart Tag compartment in the cabin.
    - Neat, aesthetically pleasing dashboard. The lit amber lighting around the instrument cluster is a nice touch.
    - Small turning radius makes for excellent manoeuvrability in urban areas.
    - Generous interior space for an A-segment sedan. The boot is also cavernous at 508L, challenging even some B-segment cars.
    - The light weight (about 930kg), low rolling resistance Bridgestone Ecopia tyres at a high pressure and a modern, fuel efficient engine contribute to respectable fuel economy.
    - Poor noise insulation. External noises can be heard in the cabin a little too easily.
    - High speed stability is not reassuring, but it handles decently enough.
    - The car is also affected by crosswinds and heavy vehicles passing quickly too closely. This might be due to its light weight.
    - The Eco Idle function is probably more annoying than it's worth, and probably doesn't save that much fuel. Because of this, maintenance costs for the battery, starter and alternator are also expected to be higher to cope with the increased engine start/stop frequency.
    - Electric power steering isn't very communicative.
    - Rear seats are a little too upright - they're comfortable enough but may be unsuitable for long journeys.
    - Hard plastics feel cheap. Glovebox, Smart Tag compartment and door side pockets don't feel very reassuring.
To improve
- Safety features like VSC should be standard across the range - people shouldn't have to pay a premium for safety. - Rear seats being more reclined and comfortable should have been prioritised over massive boot space. - Better noise insulation would go a long way in improving the Bezza's perceived quality.
Yes, I would recommend this car
