Perodua Axia 2019 model launched with over 5k bookings
Priced from a sensible RM24,000, Malaysians with a tight budget and the need to get a car will be visiting all Perodua showrooms this weekend to get a closer look at one our personal favorites, the Axia. From the first model to this revised 2019 model, the Axia has been and is a really good city commuter vehicle with space for 5 in a pinch and luggage room adequate for a young family taking a weekend break.
Perodua now has given the 2019 Perodua Axia, Malaysia’s most affordable car with advanced safety features first seen in the very popular Myvi.
The enhanced A-segment hatchback was launched today by Perodua Chairman Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin at Perodua Sentral, Petaling Jaya.
The 2019 Perodua 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 22 August, we have amassed over 5,000 bookings for the 2019 Perodua Axia, even before its public reveal,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“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 Perodua Kancil and Viva were popular choices for an entire generation of Malaysians buying their first cars.
“The 2019 Perodua Axia carries on that spirit while offering Malaysians much more in an entry-level vehicle than ever thought possible. It offers major advances in safety and style never seen before in this segment and yet retains its affordability,” 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.
“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,” Dato’ Zainal said.
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.
“We invite all Malaysians to meet and test drive the 2019 Perodua Axia at any of our sales outlets nationwide, where our friendly authorised sales advisors will be on hand to assist you and answer your queries,” Dato’ Zainal said.
