GALLERY: 2019 Perodua Axia – Style and AV in detail

The launch of the facelifted Perodua Axia last month brought a new addition, the SUV-inspired Style variant. This sits joint-second from the top of the Axia price list alongside the Axia SE at RM38,890, with the top AV variant sitting at RM43,190.

What does the Style variant offer to the range? Unique to this variant is a host of exterior features, including front and rear bumpers, grille insert with carbon-style surround, black body cladding, decorative roof rails, 15-inch dual-tone alloys, rear reflectors, clear lenses for tail lamps and of course, the Sunrise Orange paint option as seen here. The Style is 15 mm taller, though suspension is standard; the added height is from the one-inch-larger wheel size, plus roof rails.

Also added for the Style variants and above, on top of the feature list from the GXtra one rung below are B-pillar blackout stickers, new design projector headlamps, front fog lamps, rear spoiler with third brake light, Smart Key keyless entry and chrome door handles. The trade-off for the Style aesthetic at the same price as the SE is the lack of front parking sensors, wing mirror-mounted turn signals, solar/security window tint and Bluetooth for the head unit; features present on the SE, and of course the top AV.

Interior-wise, additions beyond the GXtra kit list include black denim-style fabric upholstery (for Style only), while further add ons from this variant upwards include push-button engine stop-start, a white illuminated instrument panel, semi-bucket type seats, detachable rear headrests, chrome trim on the centre cluster, chrome inside door handles and silver-painted door armrests.

The RM4,300 premium charged for the top Axia AV variant brings 14-inch dual-tone alloy wheels and front and rear skirting with gloss black trim, while also adding considerably to its safety kit list. The AV gets the Advanced Safety Assist 2.0 pack which includes Pre-Collision Warning (PCW), Pre-Collision Braking (PCB – a form of Autonomous Emergency Braking), Front Departure Alert (FDA) and Pedal Misoperation Control (PMC), while also adding a reverse camera, in addition to the safety kit list on the Axia SE.

Powertrain for the 2019 Axia is the 1.0 litre 1KR-VE VVT-i three-cylinder engine producing 67 hp at 6,000 rpm and 91 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. Transmission is a five-speed manual for the base E and a four-speed automatic for the G variant and upwards, with ventilated disc brakes in front and drum brakes at the rear. Baseline safety equipment on the E variant are dual airbags, rear ISOFIX child seat anchors; the G adds ABS with EBD, the GXtra adding VSC with traction control (new to the Axia) and rear parking sensors.

    • I love the fact this is the most practical Mini in Malaysia. It’s power is power is excellenr for 2 persons for 90% of the time. Sufficient for 4 persons for balance 8% of the time. And need some revving when loaded for balance 2% of the time.

      The interior is bigger than Proton Saga. Bigger leg room too. It’s as big as 1st/2nd gen Myvi interior. We haven’t forget. Car boot space is 260L, even larger than B segment Iriz 218L boot space.

      Push starts button. VSC. Sporty design. 1.0L vvti aluminium engine. Electric steering. Timing chain, 0w-20 engine oil. New sofa.

      Proton Saga is old school 2008 modified Campro, hydraulic steering, timing belt, 10W-30 engine oil. But it’s the cheapest mini sedan for SPM grads, still got a new looks and sofa too. Rakyat has been waiting rm26k 1.3AT ‘LMST’ version considering a dinausour exora2009 but turboed later, is selling today at rm59k. Price like that is acceptable for dinasaur no VSC no push start 2 airbags. We still have some hundreds ppl buying this good value rm59k exora today. Better value than outdated India’s 1st gen Ertiga and Honda BR-V.

      That makes the Saga the cheapest car to have Bluetooth connectivity. Imo will affect a significant amount of buyers,

      Personally I’d want Bluetooth too. No bluetooth, no buy.

    43K??? Super overpriced for an A-segment 1.0 litre engined car. Top up a few more K and you can get a B-segment Myvi or Persona.

    • It’s super Value.
      It’s has got Autonomous E. Brake up to 80km/h, warning up to 100km/h.

      This can save you from typical city drive accident. Earlier auto braking helped to reduce both frontal and can alert driver behind earlier too.

      Less accident. Safe driver. Cheaper insurance.
      Every year get 55%NCD cash back. Grab driver will be less stress from heavy 8hours daily drive. NEW Semi Bucket ala old gen myvi sofa is great for them too.

        P2 never demonstrate their safety feature to public except only stated in the paper. Unlike P1 numerously demonstrate product safety features so it sure can be working in event of unfortunate.

      • LOL, P2 fanboi butthurt much? Faiz just stated the fact Axia doesn’t have leather seats and you made an incomplete list just to make the Axia look good?

        Perhaps you’ve forgotten about the Saga Premium’s better HU, higher quality seat fabrics, rear seats with better thigh support, LED DRLs and not insignificant 4k cheaper.

          • At least, the seat fabrics in the Saga Premium feel higher quality than those in Axia AV.

  • Mana bezza Facelift lambat on Oct 10, 2019 at 9:23 pm

    Axia new FL disappoint me abit. Compare to new saga have DRL and also have a modern outlook. Now waiting for new bezza FL hopefully will have DRL and better outlook. I prefer to buy bezza for FC savings but if the new outlook cannot fight with new saga then maybe i should buy saga although FC slightly higher but stability, nvh and the modern outlook is awesome.
