Note the painted steel tailgate

The main reason why Perodua went with a conventional steel tailgate instead of the lightweight PPGF one is the lack of facilities capable of molding such a large piece of plastic here in Malaysia.

Investing in a mold capable of producing this PPGF tailgate also isn’t cheap, so Perodua decided against it and gave the Ativa a steel tailgate instead.
