Perodua has officially launched its latest Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), the Aruz, which has already received 2,200 bookings since order-taking began on 3 January.
The seven-seater SUV was launched this evening by the Minister of International Trade and Industry, Yang Berhormat Datuk Darell Leiking and witnessed by Perodua Chairman, Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin and the Japanese Ambassador to Malaysia, His Excellency Dr Makio Miyagawa.
Two variants of the Perodua Aruz are offered, namely the 1.5 X and 1.5 Advance, which are respectively priced at RM72,900 and RM77,900 (on-the-road before insurance in Peninsular Malaysia), making it among the most competitively-priced SUVs in the Malaysian market.
With 95% of its components locally-sourced, the Perodua Aruz is the national carmaker’s fourth Energy-Efficient Vehicle (EEV), touting a class-leading fuel economy of 15.6 km/l. The Perodua Aruz is offered with a five-year/150,000 km warranty (whichever comes first).
The Perodua Aruz’s standard safety features include VSC, ISOFIX and six airbags, plus an upgraded Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite with pedestrian detection and increased operational speeds on the Advance variant.
The Perodua Aruz has also been awarded a five-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating by the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS).
Five exterior colours are available – Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Electric Blue, Granite Grey and a new Amazon Green.
Perodua welcomes the public to visit its authorised sales outlets and speak with its authorised sales advisors to learn more about the Aruz and its other models.
As an added bonus, from 9 January onwards, all customers who purchase Perodua Total Protect Plus motor insurance will not only enjoy free Perodua Auto Assist benefits but also free unlimited unnamed drivers, flood allowance up to RM1,000 and Personal Accident coverage up to RM10,000.
