Powertrain - Perodua offers a turbo for the first time ever

Launched in Malaysia, the 2021 Perodua Ativa: Priced from RM 62k, 1.0L Turbo, 98 PS/140 Nm 02

As reported before, the Perodua Ativa draws power from a turbocharged 1-litre three-pot that does 98 PS and 140 Nm, hooked up to a CVT-type automatic transmission. The Perodua Ativa is a front-wheel drive-only model. Perodua says that the Ativa is able to return 5.29-litre/100 km (18.9 km/litre) under the ECE test cycle.

The Perodua Ativa gets a unique front bumper, different from the Japanese market Daihatsu Rocky and Toyota Raize. The Ativa gets a front grille that extends into both LED headlights, as well as L-shaped front fog light surrounds. LED headlights are standard fitment across the line-up.

Perodua is offering two wheels with the Ativa: the entry-level 1.0 X gets silver-finished 16-inch alloy wheels, while the 1.0 H and 1.0 AV variants get 17-inch dual-tone units.

Towards the rear-end, the Ativa gets a chrome trim that connects both LED tail lights, as well as an L-shaped motive for the rear reflectors. A silver trim below the number plate holder completes the Ativa’s rear-end.

Interior - Almost like the Rocky/Raize

Moving inside, the Perodua Ativa’s cockpit is largely similar to the Rocky/Raize, including the dashboard and steering wheel.

One of the key differentiator between the Ativa and its Japanese siblings is its air-conditioning controls. The Ativa gets a button-controlled system with two memory settings, different from the Rocky/Raize which gets two knobs (fan speed and temperature).

The infotainment system also differs, as the 9-inch touchscreen system found on the Ativa lacks support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, relying on SmartDeviceLink (SDL) instead.
