2019 Axia launched
“Since order-taking began on 22 August, we have amassed over 5,000 bookings for the 2019 Perodua Axia, even before its public launch,” said Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad, president and CEO.
“For over a quarter of a century, Perodua has mobilised Malaysia with quality compact vehicles that offer practicality, dependability, ease to drive and low overall ownership costs. For these reasons and more, the Kancil and Viva were popular choices for an entire generation of Malaysians buying their first cars,” he added.
The range-topping AV variant of the 2019 Perodua Axia gets Advanced Safety Assist (ASA*) 2.0, comprising Pedestrian Detection (up to 50 km/h), Pre-Collision Warning (up to 100 km/h), Pre-Collision Braking (up to 80 km/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 is to be had across the range, while SE and AV variants get solar and security window film.
The new stand-out addition to the Axia family 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.
With rated fuel efficiencies of 22.5 km/l for the manual, 21.6 km/l for the auto and 20.8 km/l for the new STYLE variant, Malaysia’s pioneer Energy-Efficient Vehicle (EEV) continues to be among the most fuel-efficient vehicles on sale today.
The price starts from RM24,090 with six variants.
