Perodua Axia

Despite having a small footprint and compact dimensions, the Perodua Axia is a very spacious small hatchback which can put some hatchbacks one segment above to shame with its clever space levels on the inside. The tall boy stance does translate into a considerable amount of headroom, while at the same time, the Axia demonstrates segment-best legroom as well.

Perodua has always been known for making the most economic cars in the respective segments, and the Axia being the smallest of them all, is the most fuel-efficient as well. The 1.0-litre petrol engine in the Perodua Axia promises a fuel economy of 22 kmpl, which easily outclasses all of its similarly priced competitors.

The Perodua Axia might be a car meant solely for the masses who are out there for a car for the very first time. Despite this fact, the manufacturer has not compromised in equipping this car with features, and the Axia comes with some premium features like projector headlamps, touch screen infotainment system and push-button start-stop system.

Proton Saga

The Proton Saga is fairly big for a car of its price. The overall length and width of the car feel as big as a car from one segment above, giving it a feel of driving a bigger car.

The bigger dimension of the Proton Saga on the outside clearly makes one feel pampered on the inside as well. The space levels inside the cabin are quite massive, with very impressive legroom and knee room at the rear.

Apart from the space, another area which makes the inner occupants of the car feel comfortable is the plush ride quality. The suspension setup is on the softer side, which is comfortable for long drives as well.

Perodua Axia

While the car manages to make you feel premium with its long list of feel-good comfort and convenience features, the overall design of the interior cabin and dashboard feel too sombre and plain. The center console, despite having a touch screen infotainment system, looks pretty dated in its visual appeal.

On the outside too, the Perodua Axia fails to generate a very strong first impression. The little hatchback looks a bit dated, and the rear and side profiles of the car look very plain in general, which could have had a bit more visual drama.

Proton Saga

Going by the exterior looks, it is very clear that the Proton Saga is not a car from today’s generation. While the low slung stance makes it feel dynamic, the overall boxy profile is clearly not trendy and might not appeal to the young generation at least.

Step inside the cabin and the dated feel of the car strengthens even more. The dashboard looks terribly dated and feels as if it belongs to two or three decades old.

For a car of this price, the Proton Saga lacks a number of comfort and convenience features which the buyers of today’s generation take for granted. The lack of a proper touch screen audio system itself is a turn off for many buyers.
