KUALA LUMPUR: Perodua’s most much-anticipated three-row seven-seater Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), Perodua Aruz, is now open for booking with estimated prices of between RM72,200 and RM77,200 (on-the-road before insurance in Peninsular Malaysia).
“The Perodua Aruz is our fourth transformation model, setting new standards for us in quality, space, fuel efficiency and safety – the latter bolstered by a 5-star Asean
NCAP safety rating.
“With these qualities and more, the Perodua Aruz is among the best-value SUVs in Malaysia,” Perodua president and CEO Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad said in a statement Thursday.
He added that the SUV comes with a five-year/150,000 km warranty (whichever comes first).
“The Perodua Aruz is expected to complement our existing product line-up and based on our value proposition, we expect sales of this new model to average 2,500 units monthly or 31,200 units by end-2019,” Zainal said.
Two variants of the Perodua Aruz are offered, namely the 1.5 X and 1.5 Advance, with five colours available – Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Electric Blue, Granite Grey and a new Amazon Green.
Contributing to the Perodua Aruz’s 5-star Asean NCAP safety rating are Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Hill Start Assist (HSA), ISOFIX and six airbags, which are all standard across the range.
Furthermore, the advance variant debuts an upgraded version of the Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) active safety suite, called ASA 2.0.
