The Perodua Alza is a B-segment[2] 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 was introduced in 2022 is based on the W100 series Daihatsu Xenia.[1]

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.[3]
