The Bottom Line on Brezza

While we await for the actual pricing to be revealed, the Bezza appears to be a good option for those who like sedans & are looking to purchase their 1st new vehicle (with their own money) especially compared with an entry level City or Vios for city driving & the occasional outstation trip.

Buying New (e.g. Brezza) vs Used

  • Cost: a new car is more expensive although you do get better loan rates & can get a full loan
  • Depreciation: a new car depreciates at a much faster cost (although Japanese makes tend to hold better value)
  • Condition: lesser issues with a newer car while with a used car you will want a mechanic to fully check the car condition & be ready to pay more for maintenance
  • Warranty: your used cars is very likely no longer under warranty
  • Safety: newer models have usually better safety features & ratings
  • Smell: ahhh. that new car smell. But in all seriousness, a used car may have been exposed to smoke, pets & the like.
  • Overly new: a new car may have unknown issues that have yet to surface if it’s a brand new model



Will we see Perodua continue to solidify their lead in Malaysia by market share?

Will Proton sales be slipping unless the new Saga or “Persona” exceeds expectations?

How will Honda, Toyota & Nissan respond?
