What a hideous name for a car. ALZA! Of all the car names, be it Kancil, Kelisa, Kenari, Viva, Myvi, Nautica… I personally felt Alza was a total turn off. I knew about the name a few days before, but I didn’t want to say anything, because I thought that they might eventually have a change in mind, and rename the MPV to something nicer..
Yes, I know, Rusa sounds equally bad, but I would argue that Rusa at least has Malaysia written all over it.
Sure, I know that this 1.5cc MPV’s name means ‘To rise‘ in Spanish, but when ever I hear the name ‘ALZA’, I have this complete negative vibe. I really thought that Perodua was starting to name cars the right way, especially with the Myvi , Nautica and Viva which sounds ultimately modern and complex. Naahhhh.. I don’t care Jeremy Clark calling the MyVi a MeeVeee…
Yup, I know, I sound so bitter about the name ‘Alza’, but a consolation for the Alza.. It does look nice, and it is cheap for MPVs in the same class, and I do expect people to disregard the name, and buy the MPV anyway. Interestingly, Motor sport blogger, Paul Tan says that the Perodua Alza isn’t in the same league as the Proton Exora, but rather almost halfway towards competing with Waja and Persona. Either way, Malaysia Boleh! Photo from The Star & Paul Tan.
the car is pretty nice itself 🙂
I agree.. I kind of like the Alza.. better shape than Exora.
Dont judge a book by it’s cover la~~
Push the beast in a test run!
Not judging the car at all, Just dislike the name =P
Stupid name indeed.
Weird to me.. =P

At the end of the day, quality, reliability & customer satisfaction will make the name.
