PERODUA launched the 2019 Perodua Axia, Malaysia’s most affordable car with advanced safety, today.
The enhanced A-segment hatchback was launched today by Perodua chairman Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin at Perodua Sentral, Petaling Jaya.
The 2019 Axia’s six variants – E, G, GXtra, SE, AV and an exciting new “Style” variant – are priced between RM24,090 and RM43,190, on-the-road before insurance for Peninsular Malaysia.
“Since order-taking began on August 22, we have amassed over 5,000 bookings for the 2019 Perodua Axia, even before its public reveal,” said Perodua president and CEO Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
The range-topping AV variant Advanced Safety Assist (ASA*) 2.0, comprising Pedestrian Detection (up to 50km/h), Pre-Collision Warning (up to 100km/h), Pre-Collision Braking (up to 80km/h), Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control functions to mitigate collisions.
Also, all variants from GXtra and above come with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and traction control, and all variants except the base E have ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution as standard.
Isofix seats are available across the range, while SE and AV variants get solar and security window film.
The new stand-out addition is the Style variant, which sports more rugged-looking front and rear bumpers with skid plate elements, all-round body cladding, clear-lens tail lamps, roof mouldings, a rear spoiler and striking 15-inch five-spoke alloys.
A new variant-exclusive Sunrise Orange body colour completes the trendy crossover-inspired look.
“The new Perodua Axia STYLE embodies the desire to be different; to unleash the fun and active side that exists in all of us. It is upbeat and trendy, and at the same time retains all the hallmark Axia qualities of practicality, spaciousness, clever design and ease to drive,” said Zainal Abidin.
“With rated fuel efficiencies of 22.5km/litre for the manual, 21.6km/litre for the auto and 20.8km/litre for the new Style variant, Malaysia’s pioneer Energy-Efficient Vehicle (EEV) continues to be among the most fuel-efficient vehicles on sale today.”
