Perodua Aruz SUV – 2,200 bookings made since Jan 3

Since the order books opened for the Perodua Aruz just after the new year, the company’s seven-seater SUV has since garnered 2,200 bookings from Jan 3, when its name was also confirmed. Modest it may seem, though the Aruz has only been available to book for just under two weeks thus far.

Available in two variants, the 1.5 X and the 1.5 AV, the Aruz will be priced at RM72,900 and RM77,900 respectively and is based on the latest Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios. Priced approximately RM20k below its Toyota sibling, the Aruz also undercuts the Honda BR-V in the B-segment seven-seater stakes, with the latter priced between RM81k and RM88k.

The sole powertrain option for the Perodua Aruz is the 2NR-VE Dual VVT-i 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 105 PS and 136 Nm of torque, with a four-speed automatic transmission sending drive to the rear wheels. Six airbags, VSC, hill start assist and Isofix child seat mounts are standard fitment across the board for the ASEAN NCAP five-star rated car.

Standard kit on this seven-seater includes LED headlamps with follow-me-home function, 17-inch two-tone alloys, second-row air-con vents, keyless entry and push start, Myvi-style built-in Touch n Go reader and a touch-screen head unit with reverse camera, and more.

    Look at X70 first, there are 6800 bookings for X70 in the first two weeks. Compare to P2 Aruz have only 2200 bookings only. Not worth for P2 Aruz

  • After see the actual car unit, 2000 potential buyers will cancel the booking. Why not top up RM3800 to get Honda brand or top up RM12k to get actual SUV.

    I believe also that this is real news and figures unlike typical proton magic fake number of 10,000 as usual . Proton is 100% fake news. I recall when proton launched the Iriz , dato harith the ex proton Ceo said proton collected 10,000 booking already inspite the fact that the car was not even shwon to people and no one except proton event team saw it. It shows how fake proton is. I remember paultan reporter also asked him how and he did not answer. Embarrassing.
