2019 Perodua Axia facelift – spec-by-spec comparison

Clockwise from top: Standard E, GXtra, Advance and SEThe 2019 Perodua Axia was officially launched this morning, after nearly a month of order taking that has resulted in over 5,000 bookings. The refreshed bestseller comes in six variants, priced from RM24,090 to RM43,190 on-the-road without insurance.

The outgoing Axia range had four trim levels (E, G, SE, Advance) and two of those (G and SE) had manual or auto options (base E was MT only, top Advance was AT only). In the 2019 Axia range, Perodua has added two new variants, and deleted the manual option for the SE, which means that other than the driving school spec E, all Axias come with a four-speed automatic. The new range reads E, G, GXtra (new), Style (new) SE and Advance.

Like before, the 5MT and 4AT are paired with a 1.0 litre three-cylinder engine. The 1KR-VE VVT-i engine makes 67 hp and 91 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. Claimed FC for the Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) is unchanged – 22.5 km/l for the MT and 21.6 km/l for the AT. The new SUV-inspired Style variant is rated lower at 20.8 km/l, likely due to a combination of extra weight, bigger rims/tyres and less smooth airflow.

The big news is the introduction of the Style variant. Dressed up in crossover fashion, the Axia Style has no extra off-road ability over the standard car, but wears SUV-style black plastic cladding around the lower body, with silver painted sections at the front/rear bumpers that mimic skid plates.

Adding to the desired effect are decorative black roof rails and 15-inch wheels, an inch up from the rest of the range. The latter, not unique suspension, raises height by a slight 15 mm. There’s also an exclusive Sunrise Orange colour for the Style.

Equipment wise, safety gets a big boost with the debut of Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0. First seen on the Myvi and then the Aruz (in 2.0 form), P2’s ASA safety suite includes Pre-Collision Warning, Pre-Collision Braking, Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control, all working with the assistance of a stereo camera at the top of the windscreen. That’s a big deal in this lowest of segments.
