Perodua Teases New SUV – Coming Soon

Perodua has teased an image of their upcoming SUV, based on the same platform as the recently launched Toyota Rush.

Perodua had previously teased a prototype of the production vehicle – albeit heavily concealed within a box – at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2018. However, carefully placed peepholes gave visitors a glimpse of certain design touches of the upcoming SUV.

The teaser image sheds more light on the overall silhouette of the SUV, along with the light signature of the head and taillights. Highlighted also is the new car’s flexible seating for seven.

The ad also has a chop that shows it conforms to the government’s recently announced targeted fuel subsidy program for cars with engine capacities of 1.5 litres or under.

As such, we can surmise that the new model utilize the same powertrain as the new Toyota Rush, featuring a 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i four-cylinder petrol engine mated to a 4-speed automatic, which delivers drive to the rear wheels.

This is the third time Perodua is introducing an SUV to their range, after the Kembara from way back in 1997, and the short-lived Nautica (essentially a rebadged Japanese market Daihatsu Terios) which went on sale between 2007 and 2009.
