‘Most advanced Perodua yet’: D55L open for booking

19 Feb 2021 / 18:45 H.

THE still-officially-nameless “D55L” – the most advanced Perodua yet – is now open for booking, with X, H and AV variants at prices estimated between RM62,500 and RM73,400 ( on-the-road before insurance in Peninsular Malaysia), says Perodua.

“The Perodua D55L is the first model under the Perodua Smart Build blueprint, spearheading breakthroughs for Perodua in style, safety, technology, equipment levels and value,” Perodua president and CEO Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.

Among the D55L’s headlining features is Advanced Safety Assist (ASA*). Available on all variants, the latest ASA features higher operating speeds than the current version and is capable of detecting two-wheeled vehicles.

Also available on all variants are Lane Departure Warning and Prevention, while the top AV exclusively gets Lane Keep Control, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control.

All these features make the Perodua D55L the first Perodua model to satisfy Level 2 Autonomous Driving standards.

“True to our aim to continually bring more and more advanced technology to the masses, the Perodua D55L AV is Malaysia’s most affordable Level 2 Autonomous vehicle, bringing state-of-the-art safety and convenience to a wider audience,” said Zainal.

“SUVs remain very much in demand, and the Perodua D55L is our trendiest offering in this regard. Its compactness, contemporary style and modern features make it the perfect companion for day-to-day urban lifestyles,” he added.

The Perodua D55L is also Perodua’s first turbocharged vehicle, in line with the global downsized forced-induction trend and the first Perodua to use a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), contributing to a class-leading rated fuel efficiency of 18.9 km/litre.

LED headlamps are standard across the range, while H and AV variants get Adaptive Driving Beam, a seven-inch TFT multi-info display and a 9-inch touch-screen infotainment system with voice recognition.

“As the government’s sales tax exemption is set to expire in end-June, don’t wait to book – our authorised sales advisors are eager to serve you and tell you more about the Perodua D55L at all our sales outlets nationwide, where strict Covid-19 guidelines are in place for your health and safety,” Zainal said.

X and H variants are available in Glittering Silver, Granite Grey and Cobalt Blue, with the H variant also available in Pearl Diamond White and Pearl Delima Red.

The last three colours are new for Perodua. The top AV can be had in Glittering Silver, Granite Grey, Pearl Diamond White, Pearl Delima Red, or the last two colours with a black roof. A five-year/150,000 km warranty is offered.

*ASA is a driver assistance system that helps to reduce the risk of collisions and is by no means a substitute for safe driving. Always be alert and cautious behind the wheel.
