Heading to a dealership near you
We've come a long way since first covering about the then-unnamed Daihatsu Rocky way back in 2019. As 2020 blew by, we managed to get a couple of spyshots, and now Perodua's youngest star will soon be in dealerships.
The D55L - which sits on the Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) modular platform - will have a few key features, such as:
- First Perodua with a turbocharged engine/D-CVT combo (not to be confused with Toyota's Direct Shift CVT)
- First model to feature ASA 3.0 ADAS suite, now with adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist
- Cheapest new car in Malaysia to feature adaptive LED headlights
And although the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder mill may not sound like much, it's more than enough to give the Proton X50 Flagship a run for its money. Perodua also claims that the D55L can return fuel economy figures of 5.29 litres/100 km.
We've learnt from a leaked leaflet that three variants will be offered. Estimated prices are as below:
