Of course, do note the prices aren't as affordable as you think they are. A Bezza 1.0L manual costs RM70,000! This is quite a bit more than what it costs here (RM20,000+ more...easily).
Whilst the Viva was the best selling model for Perodua Mauritius, it only sold 711 units between 2008 to 2014. The Bezza could be the way to go in emerging markets where the status of a sedan counts highly. Regardless of size.

authorised distributor Raouf Dusmohamud & Co Ltd.
The Perodua Bezza variants launched in Mauritius include the 1.0L (automatic
transmission and manual transmission); and the 1.3L Premium X (automatic
transmission and manual transmission).
“Mauritius is a strategic destination for us as this country is one of the most popular
tourist destination spots in the world and having the Perodua Bezza here would give
it the global exposure that it needs,” Perodua President & Chief Executive Officer,
Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh said.
The launch of the Perodua Bezza in Mauritius was held at Rauf Dusmohamud & Co
Ltd’s sales showroom at Port-Louis, Mauritius’ capital yesterday and was hosted by
the distributor’s Managing Director Mr Raouf Dusmohamud.
The Bezza 1.0L manual transmission is priced at 562,884 Mauritian Rupees

Mauritian Rupees (RM 73,705.45).
The Bezza 1.3L Premium X manual transmission is priced at 657,699 Mauritian
Rupees (RM 82,264.78) while the Bezza 1.3L automatic transmission is priced at

“We target to sell on average 168 units of the Perodua Bezza per year targeting car rental businesses, city taxis, young
professionals and those with young families,” Dusmohamud said.
“The Bezza is an exceptional car as it is fuel efficient, has low cost of ownership,
spacious, well designed and well made. We believe this model will be well accepted
here,” Dusmohamud added.
With the introduction of the Bezza to Mauritius, Raouf Dusmohamud & Co Ltd now
distributed three Perodua models which are the Axia, Alza and Bezza.
