THE Perodua Bezza won awards for both Best Child Occupant Protection (COP) and Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) for the small family car category at the Asean NCAP Grand Prix Awards earlier this week.
“These two awards are a recognition of our efforts to always place our customers’ safety and comfort in our products,” said Perodua president and chief executive officer Datuk Dr Aminar Rashid Salleh.
The Bezza 1.3L Advance variant comes equipped with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), a safety function that detects and reduces skidding and allows the driver to maintain stability while driving.
This variant also comes with Traction Control (TRC) and Brake Assist (BA) which gives better traction on slippery roads. It also has Hill Start Assist (HSA) that prevents the car from rolling back on slopes when the brakes are released, giving the driver time to switch to the accelerator pedal.
In addition to these safety features, the Perodua Bezza variants come equipped with anti-lock braking system, electronic brake-force distribution and intermittent operated windshield wipers which change speed in line with the vehicle’s acceleration (speed sensing wiper).
This improves visibility when driving in rain.
The Bezza, Perodua’s 11th model and first energy-efficient sedan, was launched with new technology and safety features.
The sedan comes in five variants namely the 1.0L Manual Transmission & Automatic Transmission; the 1.3L “Premium X” Manual & Automatic Transmission; and the 1.3L “Advance Version” Automatic Transmission.
