Differences and similarities between the 2022 Perodua Alza and the 2022 Toyota Veloz

Wapcar Automotive News – Toyota Veloz has been launched in Malaysia to replace the second-generation Avanza in the local lineup. Offered in a single variant, the new seven-seat MPV based on Daihatsu’s New Global Architecture (DNGA) is also used by the third-generation Avanza as well as Daihatsu Xenia and Perodua Alza.

This is Alza’s sister car, both manufactured by Perodua at its factory in Sungai Choh, Rawang. While they may be built in the same location, Toyota Veloz 2022 positions itself as a more premium offering than Alza, and the pricing certainly reflects that. At RM95,000 on the road without insurance, the one-spec Veloz is almost RM20,000 higher than the Alza AV (RM75,500).

With full details on Toyota Veloz domestic specifications, we can better compare with Alza so that buyers in the seven-seat MPV market are fully aware of all the differences and similarities copper between the two.

Starting with the mechanics, both models are powered by a 2NR-VE 1.5 liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 106 PS (105 hp or 78 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 138 Nm of torque at 4200 rpm. The Dual VVT-i engine is mated to a D-CVT transmission for front-wheel drive, and the driver has access to a manual mode for the transmission with seven virtual gears as well as three driving modes (Eco, Normal). and Power).

Similarly, the Veloz and Alza have McPherson struts at the front and torsion beam at the rear, with sport disc brakes all around (lower Alza variants get rear drum brakes instead).

Visually, the Veloz has a much different set of faces than the Alza, as evidenced by the downward-facing hexagonal grille with a Y-shaped insert. For comparison, the Alza sports a bowl-shaped grille with a thick bar running through the L-shaped insert.

The X-shape of the Alza bumper is also unique to match its grille, which is combined with LED fog lights integrated into the angular black border. The Veloz’s fog lights are more prominent with three horizontally arranged elements on its contour and further decorated with T-shaped chrome accents.

Moving to the rear, the two cars share similar taillights, but only the Veloz has a red line that leads to the central emblem and the ornate lettering above the number plate recess. The other notable difference is the bumpers, Veloz has reflectors that are horizontally aligned on black trims to accurately reflect what you see up front. Alza’s setup sees reflectors placed lower in its own distinctive bezel, and unlike its close sibling, it lacks the concave silver center section that mimics the look of a slide. .

Other exterior differences are wheels and dimensions, the former being a 17-inch unit on the Veloz, while the Alza topped out with a 16-inch. In terms of dimensions, both have the same 2,750mm wheelbase, but the Veloz bumper means it’s 50mm longer than the Alza AV at 4,475mm. The Toyota MPV is also slightly wider at 1,750mm (+20mm) due to the protruding wheel arches, in contrast to the Alza which has wheel hubs.

Another important aspect is the height, Veloz is 1700mm tall compared to Alza AV at 1670mm. The 30mm difference is due to the ground clearance, Veloz has 190mm, 30mm higher than Alza with 160mm (150mm for the base X).

If you like low-riding MPV styling, the Alza is the car for you with its car-like ground clearance that Perodua says allows easy entry and exit for passengers and cargo (lower loading floor). Meanwhile, Toyota says you won’t have to “worry about damaging the undercarriage when going through rough terrain, speed bumps or potholes” with their higher delivery.

Before moving inside, it should be noted that Veloz can only be ordered in two colors, Metallic Blue and Metallic Silver. Other options are monotone and include black metallic blue, metallic red and white. Alza’s palette includes Classic Brown, Elegant Black, Garnet Red, Sparkling Silver and Ivory White, although some are exclusive to the H and AV variants only.

Going on both cars, the Veloz and Alza share an almost identical main dashboard, but the former car’s vent design is unique to the model. The Toyota front end measures 9 inches – the same as the Alza – but with more features with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support – the Alza only has wired Android Auto on the ‘AV. The speaker count of both is six, including two tweeters.

The digital instrument panel of a single-zone climate control car is also different, with the Toyota MPV having two round buttons and automatic functions. Alza’s control panel has only buttons and no automatic functions, although two memory locations are available.

Another thing Veloz gets that Alza doesn’t have is the Qi wireless charger located on the center console – Alza instead fits the center locking buttons into the empty space; Veloz’s central locking is accessed via a button on the driver’s door. The Toyota MPV also has chunky door handles on the door cards and ambient LED lighting (on the doors and center console) to reflect its more upscale placement.

You’ll also notice that the Alza AV comes with a two-tone dash with a deep red as a contrasting color, while a light gray for the Veloz. What’s not immediately obvious is the telescopic adjustment, which is exclusive to the Veloz – the Alza’s three-spoke steering wheel adjusts only for tilt.

Skimming through equipment list, remote keyless start, folding exterior mirrors, second row seats 60:40, third row 50:50, second row armrests , a dashboard camera, an electronic parking brake (with auto-hold function) and a spare wheel are standard on the Veloz and Alza AV. The same goes for the semi-leather seats, although the seat models are different and the Veloz doesn’t have any contrasting accents.

Safety wise, Veloz and Alza AV come with six airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, Hill Start Assist, emergency stop signal, sensors front and rear parking (two at each end) and second row of ISOFIX child seat anchors (outside seats).

Driver assistance systems are also identical for both, including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with low speed tracking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, Forward departure warning, pedal error control, blind spot monitor, automatic high beams, rear cross-traffic alert and 360-degree camera.

Finally, in terms of warranty, the Toyota Veloz comes with a 5 year unlimited km warranty while the Perodua Alza comes with a 5 year 150,000 km warranty, which can be an advantage for the Veloz if you are a user. use high mileage.
