The latest model to be launched by Perusahaan Otomobil Kedua Sdn Bhd (Perodua) is an energy efficient vehicle (EEV) that is being priced at RM24,900.

Perodua said the the latest model is its most fuel efficient car that can potentially travel up to 21.6 km/l and have an overall low cost of ownership.

The Name 'Axia' Is A Combination Of The Word "Asia" And The Letter "X" As A Roman Numeral For The Number 10, Representing Perodua's 10th Model

In a statement, Perodua said: “We believe that the Perodua Axia is competitive in the region, which is why the word “Asia” was incorporated into the name; in addition, this vehicle also represents a whole new standard for us.”

Perodua President And Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh Said Booking Will Start On Friday, 15 August 2014 And The Fees Are Only RM250 And RM300 – Depending On Variant

The Perodua Axia will debut in four variant guises – Standard E, Standard G, Special Edition and Advance. The base Standard E model will be priced from RM24,900 – this is for Peninsular Malaysia and with a solid paint exterior. Here’s another big announcement – the Axia will come with a five-year warranty, which is a first for a Perodua.

Another bit of information released is that the car will have 260 litres of boot space, which Perodua says is shaped to be able to fit four travel bags.

Photos Of A New Perodua Model Were Caught Floating Around The Internet Since Mid July 2014

An undisguised photo of what appears to be Perodua’s next car was leaked onto the internet. The photo seems to have been snapped inside some kind of storage area.

The New Model Is Reportedly Replacing The Current Perodua Viva With A Much Sportier Look That Could Pass Off As A MyVi SE At First Glance

These are probably the best photos yet of the car, showcasing it pretty much completely undisguised. Not a bad looker, isn’t it? Making the biggest statement appears to be the elongated honeycomb-design front grille, which is quite bold as is. Could this be a sport variant of some sort? Time will tell.

Around the back, you would be blamed for thinking this was a Myvi, with the rear bumper being very similar in design.

As A Comparison, Here's How The Perodua Viva Looks Like:

You Can Expect Some Improvements To Be Made To The Interior

The interior is as previewed by the Perodua Global Model A (GMA) Space at the KLIMS13 show back in November last year (2013), apart from the fact that this particular unit has a large touch screen audio display system in the middle of it – another suggestion that this could be the highest-spec variant.

Perodua Is Well-Known For Its Fuel Efficiency. The New Engine Is Rumoured To Be Able To Deliver A Minimum Fuel Consumption Of 20-22 Kilometres Per Litre.

Also previewed at the KLIMS13 show was a 1.0-litre engine with their 1KR-DE three-cylinder mill. No performance figures were offered at the time, but seeing the aluminium-block engine, you can expect some 65PS and 85Nm of torque – bear in mind that these may vary according to the fuels used.

Being made of aluminium, it weighs 69 kg, which is 10 kg lighter than the 1.0 litre cast iron block engine that Perodua currently uses. Perodua claims the new engine will be able to deliver a minimum fuel consumption of 20-22 km per litre.

We Understand That This New Perodua Is Inspired From Daihatsu Ayla. Don't They Look The Same?

Perodua says its new Global EEV hatchback will be built on a licensed Daihatsu platform, but will use its own body. The Daihatsu Ayla itself is based on the Japanese market Daihatsu Mira e:S, and the new Perodua will likely share this platform as well.

Could 'Axia' Be Its New Name? Rumour Has It That The Car Would Either Be Called 'Axia', Atrivia' Or 'Eliana'.

Perodua filed for the trademark ‘Axia’ with the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) in February 2014, under class 12 and class 37, which are generally car-related. Then in late May 2014, it filed for two additional trademarks – ‘Atrivia’ and ‘Eliana’, under the same classes.

When the Axia name was discovered, Perodua president Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh said it was not the only name submitted, and that Perodua had not decided on a name. So it could either be Axia, Atrivia or Eliana for now. Which name do you prefer?
