Aruz Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Aruz

For a seven-seater compact MUVs which are usually styled conservatively, the Perodua Aruz looks very striking. The various styling cues like angular front fascia and rear profile machined alloy wheels, roof rails, and high ground clearance and some factors which are clearly inspired by that of a modern compact SUV, which makes it look quite rugged and very modern at the same time.

The seven seating configuration of the Perodua Aruz makes it one of the most flexible and practical cars of today’s time. The second and third row have multiple seating adjustments, which make it very convenient to ferry people and luggage at the same time,  which is not possible in a similarly priced five-seater compact SUV.

Things We Dont Like in Aruz

While there is not much to complain about the packaging and exterior styling of the Perodua Aruz, the fact that it is nothing but a rebadged Toyota Rush robs of the factor of exclusivity from this car. It would have been better if Perodua could have introduced some minute styling changes in and out, rather than just replacing the Toyota badge with that of Perodua, and nothing else.

While the exterior styling of the Perodua Aruz is exceptionally well and dramatic, the same can’t be said about the interior cabin layout. It would have been better if Perodua could have made the dashboard layout as contemporary and visually striking as the exterior design. The interior cabin layout looks a bit simple for a UV of this segment.

Aruz Overview

Perodua Aruz was first showcased at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show in the year 2018 and after teasing the world with a few facelifted images, finally, the Aruz was brought to the world. With the introduction of Aruz, Perodua has now entered the world of the most desirable segment, which is the SUV. 

For a seven-seater compact MUVs which are usually styled with the most conventional design forms, the Perodua Aruz looks very eye-catchy. The various styling hues like angular front fascia and rear profile machined alloy wheels, roof rails, and high ground clearance and some features that truly make it a sub-compact SUV. It looks like a complete combination of a modern-day SUV which is rugged and designed very contemporarily. Segment-wise, the Aruz belongs to the B-segment SUV and faces stiff competition from already established names like the Toyota Rush and Honda BR-V.

The Perodua Aruz is available in two variants - X and AV. Both the trims powered by a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder Dual VVT-i engine. You are given a variety of color options to choose from which include Amazon Green, Granite Grey, Electric Blue, Glittering Silver, and Ivory White. For the Malaysian markets, the starting price of Aruz comes at around RM 72,200. 

Perodua Aruz Interior & Features

As you get inside the Perodua Aruz, you will see a cabin space that is full of luxury and premium features. The cabin is very thoughtfully designed to give you a plush feel, with every aspect and corner intricately designed using the best quality material. With a capacity to occupy seven passengers, Aruz has a seating arrangement that offers ample headroom and legroom to the occupants, so that you are at your utmost comfort level throughout the journey. The flexible seating arrangement makes the access to the second and third-row so much simple. In the most convenient feature, the second-row seat comes with a recline, slide, and tumble functions. The seats are wrapped in soft fabric upholstery and leather upholstery for the base trim and the top-range AV trim respectively. 

Coming to the dashboard, we see the style game has reached another level with all equipment placed ergonomically. The dashboard is nicely colored in the piano-black theme. For the driver’s field, there is a smart information cluster with a MID screen, placed behind the steering wheel. The steering wheel is wrapped in high-quality leather, with all basic controls for audio and Bluetooth connectivity.  The main attraction of the center-instrument console is the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and below it, are neatly placed AC vents. Some of the additional multi-functional features of the Aruz includes a push start/stop button, a single-zone manual air-conditioning system with memory function supported by a digital display, a USB port on the first and second row, a 12-volt socket on the third row, and an integrated toll reader.

Designed with sheer thoughtfulness, the top variant of Aruz also has a few additional features like an Integrated Driving Video Recorder and SmartLink smartphone screen mirroring via HDMI port.

Aruz Exterior

Just as the interior aesthetics were mesmerizing, similarly the exterior designing and layout of the Perodua Aruz are also top-notch. 

Talking about the front fascia of the car, you see a multi-slate chrome grille enhancing the beauty of the front profile. The grille has shades of black and silver accents to highlight the shine and gloss of the grille. Further, located at the front face are LED headlamps, accompanied by fog lamps. Coming to the side profile of the car, you see nicely sculpted lines that seamlessly merge to the rear portion. The Aruz rides on huge 17-inch alloy wheels which makes it carry a bulky stance. The rear profile is equally attractive with elements like a wrap-around edgy tail lamp, bold and black tailgate trim, number plate with silver garnish, and rear skid plates. 

In terms of dimensions, the Aruz measures 4435 mm X 1695 mm X 1705 mm (L X W XH). The wheelbase and even the boot space measure at 2685 mm and 213-litre, respectively. Overall, the exterior aesthetics of Perodua Aruz looks stylish, rugged, and modern, at the same time.

Perodua Aruz Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Perodua Aruz has a powerful engine at its heart which is a1496cc naturally-aspirated 2NR-VE VVT-i four-cylinder petrol engine. The engine has the capacity to spark a maximum power of 105 PS at 6000 rpm along with a peak torque of 136 Nm at 4200 rpm. This engine is mated to a four-speed automatic unit that sends the power to the wheels. The engine is highly powerful in terms of performance and is highly fuel-efficient. Thanks to this feature, the engine can churn out an average of 15.6 kmpl, and an Eco Idle automatic engine technology also adds to its enhancement.

Aruz Braking & Safety

For an SUV of this size and stance, it is very important for the car to have the best braking and safety features, to ensure the driver and occupants about a reliable journey. Keeping this in mind, Perodua automakers have thoughtfully incorporated all the standard and basic safety features which include 6 airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, ABS with EBD and brake assist, Hill-start assist, Hill descent control, seat belt reminder for all seats, emergency stop signal, and ISOFIX.  The AV trim also comes equipped with the Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0, braking with pedestrian detection, front departure alert, and pedal misoperation control. Perodua Aruz also managed to secure a 5-start rating at the ASEAN NCAP rating.

Perodua Aruz Verdict

The seven-seating configuration of the Perodua Aruz makes it one of the most flexible and practical SUV of today’s time. The second and third-row have multiple seating adjustments, which make it very convenient to ferry people and luggage at the same time, and that is not possible in a similarly priced five-seater compact SUV. It is a deal worth picking at this price.

    I have been driving the Perodua Aruz for over a year now and I am completely satisfied with my purchase as I did not face a single issue with it. It is a good seven-seater as it offers excellent spacing for all the passengers. Even the headroom and knee room in the third row is good enough for two adults. Read More

    The Aruz looks deceptively close to a baby Fortuner. That’s not an overstatement because the car was able to retain its lively nature when I took it over some dirt and gravel roads. The occupants were fully isolated from the surface harshness. While a few bumps were felt, that didn’t upset the car’s balance. The car is made for harsh Read More

    The fact that the Perodua Aruz is exactly the same vehicle as Toyota Rush, without any major significant change over it, baffled me initially. However, save for the cross-badging thing, the Aruz, if seen as a vehicle in isolation, is a very tempting package. The sharp and premium styling on the outside, with that added hint of ruggedness of the Read More

    The Aruz, despite being an MPV, looks almost like an SUV. The cabin is very quiet and there’s minimal grunt feedback while cruising in the highway. Its competitor Honda BR-V is rather noisy. It’s a value for money car which comes with lots of equipment. The Aruz offers good handling though it is quite tall. Acceleration is pretty easy and Read More
