The upcoming Perodua Ativa has been spotted during a night delivery by Facebook users, Fatoni Marzuki and Azlan Ahmad. The images that have appeared on funtasticko show cars covered in black canvas being delivered from the Perodua HQ in Rawang, travelling on the NKVE.
The 2021 Perodua Ativa is due to launch very soon and prices start from RM63k. Bookings are already open.
Powering the car is a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine (98 PS/140 Nm) paired to a CVT. The Ativa is also capable of returning 5.29 litre/100 km (18.9 km/litre).
The Perodua Ativa will be the first Perodua to get the ASA 3.0 ADAS suite, including features such as Pre-Collision Braking (PCB), Pre-Collision Warning (PCW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP). Upper variants are expected to add Lane Keep Control (LKC), Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) , Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
The Perodua Ativa will be Perodua's first turbocharged car and also Perodua's first car with a CVT. While the Proton X50 might have taken the limelight in 2020, 2021 might just be the Perodua Ativa's year.
