    Before diving into the Axia variants’ features, let’s check out their prices and engine specifications first -

    Axia G

    RM 38,600

    Axia X

    RM 40,000

    Axia SE

    RM 44,000

    Axia AV

    RM 49,500

    The prices are around RM4k - RM6k dearer than the outgoing model, which is of course not a small change as per the segment. However, charging more for a bigger, safer, and better car with more features and added value is quite justified. The warranty terms include a standard five-year duration or 150,000 km, whichever comes first.

    2023 Perodua Axia colours

    Five colour shades available for all the variants are Granite Grey, Lava Red, Glittering Silver, Ivory White, and the all-new Coral Blue. 

    The new Axia is based on the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) platform which we can also find underneath the Ativa and the second-gen Alza. The latest foundation brings on several benefits such as the new model being 115 mm longer and 45 mm wider. Also, it is stronger but lighter with a maximum kerb weight of 890 kg.
