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?
21/07/2016: Perodua sales target for Y2016 unchanged

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

How will Honda, Toyota & Nissan respond?

    Bezanya, comparing the most expensive Bezza with the cheapest Persona, Bezza materials look really cheap and of low quality.

    Thanks for sharing your input Hisham
