The Perodua Alza is a B-segment[1] multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) produced by Malaysian car manufacturer Perodua. The first-generation model, based on the Daihatsu Boon Luminas, was launched in November 2009 as the company's first purpose-built MPV. The second-generation model that will be introduced in 2022 is based on the W100 series Daihatsu Xenia.

The name "Alza" is derived from the Spanish verb "alzar", which means "to rise". The name came from an internal competition held amongst Perodua's staff during the car's development phase.[2]
