It’s not everyday that you get to sample a variety of cars from different brands under one roof, but the paultan.org Auto Car Expo (ACE) 2022 offers that opportunity to try cars for size and compare among models without having to go to several showrooms. Market leader Perodua has the Aruz and Ativa on hand. Bring the whole family for a seven-seater fitting session with the Aruz. Curious about the Ativa’s turbocharged power delivery? Test it here.

With plenty of attention on the new Alza, it’s easy to forget the Aruz, Perodua’s high-riding seven-seater. There’s plenty going for the Alza, but the new MPV has some key differences from the Aruz; the latter’s characteristics might appeal more to some families. Height is one – with a ground clearance of 220 mm, the Aruz rides 60 mm higher than the Alza, and a high seating position provides better visibility.

The Aruz comes with many of the good things we’ve come to expect from Perodua, including Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 plus six airbags for a five-star ASEAN NCAP crash test rating. Latest features include auto door locking and side steps to assist entry and exit. There’s also a fresh Passion Red colour that’s present at ACE.

Still the only Perodua with a turbocharged engine, the Ativa’s 1.0 litre turbo blends performance with fuel economy, which is rated at 18.9 km/l (ECE mode). Max torque of 140 Nm is available from a low 2,400 rpm to 4,000 rpm, ensuring good acceleration. 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 simply unbeatable in the price segment.

Co-sponsored by Petron, Yinson GreenTech and myTukar, ACE 2022 promises amazing deals on a wide variety of vehicles. Participating brands include Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, Proton, Perodua, Subaru and Royal Alloy scooter. Similar to the inaugural outing last year, the expo will also see representation from the premium segment, with Mercedes-Benz (through Cycle & Carriage), BMW/MINI (through Wheelcorp Premium) and Volvo (through Ingress Swede Automobile) also taking part in the event.
