2023 Perodua Axia from RM38,600 – here are some never before offered features and items!

The 2023 Perodua Axia has been launched with four variants available. The G variants start from RM38,600, the X from RM40,000, the SE from RM44,000 and the AV from RM49,500. The new Axia replaces the previous generation model after nearly 600,000 units were sold in eight years between 2014 to 2023.

So far, Perodua has received over 20,000 bookings for the new compact hatchback, including over 13,000 bookings for the previous model converted to the new. While the new Axia retains the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine from the previous generation with 67 hp and 91 Nm, here are some of the latest offerings not available in the Axia before.

Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) platform

The new Axia is built on the DNGA platform much like the current generation Toyota vehicles are built on the Toyota New Global Architecture platform. The modular platform focuses on improved driving position, driving stability with optimised suspension tuning and offering a lighter body with higher rigidity. The new platform also promises reduced Noise, Vibrations and Harshness (NVH). The new Alza and Ativa are also built on this similar platform.

Four-speed automatic to Dual-mode CVT (D-CVT)

The new 2023 Axia may have retained the proven 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine from before but it’s now paired with a dual-mode CVT gearbox. The D-CVT gearbox first made its debut here in the Perodua Ativa.

Here, the split gear system uses a belt-driven system at low speeds and switches to a gear-driven system at higher speeds for better fuel efficiency and power delivery. Fuel economy is rated at 25.3 km/L for variants without the Eco Idle feature and 27.4 km/L for variants with the feature. Based on current fuel prices of RM2.05 per litre for RON95, Perodua says it will cost less than RM28 to travel over a distance of 365 km from Kuala Lumpur to Penang.

Safety – Advance Safety Assist 3.0

On top of the features you get in the Advance Safety Assist 3.0, which includes autonomous emergency braking and front departure warning, the new Axia is now also equipped with lane departure warning and prevention, blind spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert. Even the airbag count has been bumped up to six from a maximum of two previously. These are only available in the top-spec AV variant.

New features inside and out!

Aside from its larger dimensions and new design, the Axia is now also fitted with LED daytime running lights, automatic LED headlamps with automatic high beam function and rear LED combinations lamps. That said, the L-shaped lighting on the headlamps are actually positioned lights and the LED daytime running lights are actually on the front bumper. These are offered from the X variant onwards.

Inside, the Axia gets a seven-inch digital instrument cluster for the first time, a Power button on the steering wheel and digital air-conditioning controls (all in AV variants only) and at long last, steering tilt adjustments (in X variants onwards).

The Axia may cost more than before and is now priced much closer to the Perodua Myvi but what’s your take on the new additions? Would you consider the 2023 Perodua Axia to have levelled-up?


  1. Semua yang di nyatakan hanya ada pada Advance version dan Untuk sesiapa beli kenderaan baru, 1.0Av boleh pertimbangkan bezza 1.3 AV or myvi 1.5X.Malah harga untuk spec axia G pun saudara/saudari still boleh consider saga 1.3 lite spec untuk Praktikaliti and keselesaan kecuali memang tak kisah semua tu, terpulang kepada saudara saudari.
