Perodua’s latest offering, the 2019 Axia has scored over 5,000 bookings from August 22 until its launch today, said president and CEO of Perodua Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad. The company is confident in attaining its sales target of 6,000 units a month, of which 1,000 units will be the new Style variant.

“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 CEO said.

To recap, six variants were launched; the Axia E, Axia G, Axia GXtra, Axia SE, the new addition, the Axia Style and the top Axia Advance or AV. All variants are powered by a 1KR-VE VVT-i 1.0 litre three-cylinder engine with 67 hp and 91 Nm of torque.

The base E is the sole variant with a five-speed manual gearbox, and all others use a four-speed automatic. The top Axia Advance variant features a host of active safety features, including Advanced Safety Assist 2.0 which consists of pedestrian detection, pre-collision warning, pre-collision braking, front departure alert and pedal misoperation control to help avoid or mitigate the effects of a collision.

At launch, the 2019 Perodua Axia E is priced at RM24,090, the G at RM33,490, GXtra at RM34,990, the new Style variant and the Axia SE at RM38,890, with the Axia Advance topping the launch range at RM43,190. Warranty coverage is for five years or 150,000 km, whichever comes first.
