MIROS Director-General, Honorable Dato’ Dr. Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim said:
“The new Perodua Alza is Perodua’s second model assessed under the ASEAN NCAP protocol for 2021-2025. Despite ASEAN NCAP’s latest requirements for safety in its current protocol, Perodua has indeed rose to the occasion by installing several key safety assist technologies as standard fitment in all its variants. As such we are proud that Malaysian’s local manufacturers have been progressive in vehicle safety by adhering to ASEAN NCAP’s strict requirements.”
Dato’ Dr. Khairil Anwar who is also the Secretary General of ASEAN NCAP added, “With the launch of the new Alza, Perodua has shown their continuous passion and spirit for safety of the road users—not only for the safety of their customers and their families but also other vulnerable road users. Hence, I encourage more vehicle manufacturers to project similar passion as well by developing cars that have the needed safety technologies as we work together to meet the target of halving road fatalities in this region.”
The ASEAN NCAP 2021-2025 latest assessment protocol covers four assessment domains with AOP covers 40.00 points of the overall score, and COP, SA and MS make up 20.00 points each of the overall score.
