Did You Know The Perodua Aruz Costs RM286k in Singapore?
The Perodua Aruz has officially entered its first overseas market – Singapore. At launch, it is priced at SGD92,999 (RM286,409), inclusive of Goods and Services Tax and Certificate of Entitlement (COE).
“The Aruz’s arrival in Singapore marks the first seven-seater offered by Perodua in the island nation,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“With nearly 58,000 units sold in Malaysia since its debut in 2019, the Perodua Aruz was Malaysia’s best-selling SUV overall in 2019 and 2020. We are looking forward to sharing the Aruz’s space, safety, versatility, durability, practicality and fuel efficiency with our southern neighbours,” he added.
The Perodua Aruz’s aluminium-block 1.5 litre Dual VVT-i four-cylinder engine joins forces with an electronically-controlled automatic transmission and Eco Idle to yield a rated fuel efficiency of up to 15.6 km/l.
Its versatility comes courtesy of 60:40-split second and 50:50-split third rows that can be slid, folded and tumbled for a multitude of seating and loading configurations. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), ISOFIX and six airbags contribute to a full five-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating.
Other standard equipment include LED headlamps, 17-inch two-tone alloys, keyless entry and start, and a touch-screen infotainment system with reverse camera display.
The Perodua Aruz is sold by Perocom Auto Pte Ltd at their sole outlet in Ubi. The sole authorised Perodua distributor in Singapore since 1997, Perocom Auto has sold the Kancil, Kembara, Kelisa, first- and third-generation Myvis, Viva, Axia and Bezza there.
Other export markets
Besides Singapore, Perodua also exports to Brunei, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, the Seychelles, Fiji and Indonesia (where the Myvi is sold as the Daihatsu Sirion).
Back in Malaysia, the Perodua Ativa was the best-selling compact SUV in the country in the month of March. Thanks to the Ativa, Perodua has well surpassed its 3,000-unit monthly delivery target in the first month itself.
“We thank Malaysians for their support and trust. On our end, we are committed towards timely deliveries of every order made,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.
A good start to 2021
On production, Dato’ Zainal said that Perodua manufactured 60,383 vehicles in 1Q21 – a 23% boost over the 49,280 units produced in 1Q20.
“For now, our biggest challenge is the semiconductor chip shortage, which is having varying impacts on carmakers on a global scale.
“We are working with our partners to find alternative supply while at the same time monitoring the situation on a daily basis to ensure continued operation of our production lines,” he said.
