ACE 2022: Perodua Ativa – safety, technology and drivability in a value-packed turbo SUV package

The Perodua Ativa needs no introduction, merely a reminder of how much car you’re getting for the money. The official target market for the SUV is listed as single or married males with an active lifestyle, but everyone will appreciate the safety and technology on offer, all in a trendy SUV bodystyle.

Still the only Perodua with a turbocharged engine, the Ativa’s 1.0-litre Turbo engine blends performance with fuel economy, which is rated at 18.9 km/l (ECE mode with Eco Idle). Maximum torque of 140 Nm is available from a low 2,400 rpm to 4,000 rpm, ensuring good acceleration in town and when overtaking. Power delivery is smooth and efficient thanks to the advanced D-CVT with seven-speed mode.

Safety is top priority and the Perodua Smart Drive Assist range of features is unbeatable in the price segment. Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) is standard across the range and it includes Pre-collision Warning, Pre-collision Braking, Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control. Lane Departure Warning and Prevention is similarly standard, while Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Control, Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are available. The Adaptive Driving Beam headlamps provide maximum illumination without blinding other road users.

The Ativa also features a fully-digital instrument panel with selectable themes and reminder displays for important events. There’s also a 9.0-inch infotainment display with reverse camera and Smart Link phone connection with voice recognition. Check out the Ativa at ACE 2022, happening this weekend at the Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC), 9am to 7pm.
