KUALA LUMPUR: Perodua has introduced a fresher look for its sport utility vehicle (SUV) model, Aruz, with new features and colours to better satisfy customer demands.

The seven-seater SUV is currently on sale at unchanged (on-the-road, before insurance) prices of RM68,526 for the X variant and RM73,226 for the AV variant in Peninsular Malaysia.

“With well over 60,000 units sold since its launch in 2019, the Perodua Aruz was the nation’s best-selling SUV in 2019 and 2020.

“But, true to the principles of Kaizen, we believe there are always ways we can make our products incrementally better,” its president/chief executive officer Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad said in a statement today.

Both variants will now feature side steps to ease entry and exit, plus automatic door-locking when travelling above 20 kilometres per hour.

Additionally, the doors will automatically unlock in the event of a collision.

A new Passion Red body colour — which is exclusively available for the AV variant — joins the existing palette of Granite Grey, Electric Blue, Glittering Silver and Ivory White.

An energy-efficient vehicle, the Perodua Aruz offers space, safety, versatility, durability, practicality and low ownership costs in a compact, seven-seater package. – Bernama
