You’ve seen our spec-by-spec comparability publish of the 2023 Perodua Axia, and right here’s a comparo video to go together with it, exhibiting you the outside, inside and spec variations between the D74A’s 4 variants.
The brand new Axia vary begins from the G at RM38,600, whereas the X goes for RM40,000. The SE is an even bigger step up at RM44,000, whereas the bells and whistles AV clocks in just under the RM50k mark at RM49,500 on the street excluding insurance coverage. We’ve additionally carried out the month-to-month instalment calculations, which places the brand new Axia from RM440 to RM563 a month – full chart right here.
What do you get for RM440 month-to-month? The bottom Axia G could be very simple to identify from the skin, because it’s the one variant to not include full LED headlamps, however reflector halogens as a substitute. The wing mirrors (electrically adjustable) don’t have sign lamps, which is why you’ll discover bulbs on the entrance fenders.
The B pillars are in physique color, as are the little triangles on the base of the A pillars. The opposite fashions get black stickers for a streamlined look. The wheels are 14-inch objects with first rate Toyo Proxes CR1 rubber – unusually, this combo is customary from G to AV, with no upsize or distinctive design for the highest variants.
The G can also be the one new Axia to not get keyless entry so that you’ll should press a button on the important thing to lock/unlock, after which insert the important thing and twist to begin. The inside is an all-black affair with no trim accents. The fundamental package checklist consists of an analogue speedo with no rev counter, radio with two audio system (with Bluetooth and USB, which is sweet) and knobs for the guide aircon.
Tilt steering adjustment makes a debut on the Axia, however that’s for variants above the G. The driving force’s seat is top adjustable. On the again, the built-in ‘pillow’ headrests are very low and we discovered some shock omissions such because the rear centre cupholder and roof seize handles. Security sensible, the G will get two airbags, ABS, hill-start help, VSC, seat belt reminders (back and front), Isofix anchors and rear parking sensors.
Until your finances actually doesn’t allow, the RM40,000 Axia X ought to be the place it begins, as you get much more package for simply RM1,400 additional. Unfold throughout a nine-year mortgage, the X will price you round RM455 month-to-month, or RM15 extra.
The automated LED headlamps with LED positioning lamps alone would most likely be definitely worth the premium, each in seems to be and performance. Manufacturing unit LED headlamps are a kind of issues that after you expertise, you’ll be able to by no means return. One other merchandise on this class is keyless entry and push begin, which the X has. By the best way, the sensor on the Axia’s driver door deal with is of the electrostatic sort, as per the Ativa/Alza, and higher than the Myvi’s black button.
The slimmer LED eyes considerably improves the X’s seems to be, and the B-pillars and the entrance nook triangles are coated in matte black stickers. Inside upgrades over the G embrace tilt-adjustable steering, rear door audio system, seize handles, rear centre cupholder and entrance parking sensors. That’s lots of additional stuff for RM1,400.
If the Axia vary might be cut up into two, the SE and AV are on the greener facet of the sphere. The RM44,000 SE (round RM500 per thirty days) seems to be sportier due to black skirting on the entrance and sides, plus a chrome ‘wing’ on the grille that integrates properly with the LED positioning lamps. There’s additionally a delicate tailgate spoiler and the realm across the rear quantity plate is in black.
The sign lights are actually on the wing mirrors, which have an influence fold perform. The SE and AV additionally get photo voltaic and safety window tint (by LLumar). Even from far, you’ll discover this increased grade Axia, thanks to straightforward LED daytime working lights. Even the highest Ativa and Alza don’t get LED DRLs as customary.
Inside, the SE doesn’t seem like the Axia cabin you see in adverts, however there are a number of notable upgrades from what we’ve seen to this point. The aircon management panel is now digital; this is identical unit discovered within the Ativa/Alza and comes with two reminiscence positions. The dashboard seems to be extra upmarket due to a silver horizontal trim and silver accents on the steering and equipment knob. The AC tabs and door handles are in chrome.
Different additions embrace a PWR mode button, a rev counter on the sportier instrument panel, Eco-Idle automated start-stop and a sound insulation cowl underneath the bonnet. Sensible small touches embrace the purse hook between the entrance seats and teh tarik hooks embedded into the entrance seat backs. The seats are completely different – the ‘semi-bucket’ fronts get massive facet bolsters, and there are correct adjustable headrests on the again.
Lastly, we arrive on the RM49,500 AV, which can set you again RM563 a month over 9 years. The RRP is a giant RM5,500 soar from the SE, however there’s additionally a considerable checklist of AV-exclusive package that’s exhausting to retrofit.
The range-topper isn’t distinctive from the skin, sporting the identical bodykit because the SE and the standard-issue 14-inch single-tone wheels.

This pack consists of autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and entrance departure warning, a characteristic that does society a favour by alerting drivers caught on telephones that site visitors is shifting.
AEB is one thing that Proton doesn’t provide till the X50 Flagship, a RM113k SUV, so to get it in an Axia is nice.
