Future Perodua Models Could Receive An Improved ASA System

A couple of days ago, we posted photos of a Daihatsu Thor in Malaysia, hooked up to some test equipment.

Thanks to our friends over at Automachi, we now know what the Daihatsu kei car was doing here in Malaysia.

According to their post, the Daihatsu Thor is supposedly here to test an improved AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) system that works up to 80 km/h. By comparison, the new Myvi's AEB system only works up to 30 km/h. 

The AEB found in the new Myvi is part of the new Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) safety suite, exclusive to the range-topping Myvi 1.5 AV. 

As reported earlier, it is very unlikely that Perodua will be launching a revival model of the Kenari. We reckon that the Daihatsu Thor seen here is for the local development of specific feature. Perodua is unlikely to introduce a tall box-like vehicle like the Thor to replace the Kenari.
