Perodua Kelisa

Hot on the heels of the recently introduced new look Kenari mini MPV, Perodua is pleased to announce the launch of the New Generation Kelisa. The new Kelisa super mini has had its previously cute, retro looks restyled to give a more contemporary appearance without losing the charm of the original. This exciting new development heralds the introduction of even lower prices across the range. Kelisa prices now start with an improved EX model at just £4,699 delivered.

Improvements to the Kelisa’s specification have been made throughout the range. All three Kelisa models benefit from new styling, which includes a new look rear aspect and new combined honeycomb design front grille and bumper. The Kelisa EX entry-level model, at the new price of £4,699 delivered*, now has all new high grade Olympus upholstery in line with the more highly specified models in the range. The option of metallic paint is also now available on this model***. The Kelisa GXi gains an improved variation of the new upholstery along with protective side mouldings and is now just £5,499 delivered*. The Kelisa EZi automatic comes with the additional features mentioned above as well as new colour-matched rear view mirrors and exterior door handles, for only £6,399 delivered**. New generation Kelisa also benefits from an exciting new range of colours.

With the growing increase in motoring costs, the Kelisa continues to be the UK’s most affordable car to own and run over 3 years/60,000 miles, according to CAP, at just 14.1 pence per mile including purchase price, running costs and depreciation. The Kelisa also provides excellent fuel consumption with a combined figure of 55.4 mpg.

All Perodua Kelisa models feature five doors, power steering, dual airbags, side impact protection, seat belt pre-tensioners, engine immobiliser, rear door child safety locks, folding rear seat backrest, rear wash/wipe, heated rear windscreen, parcel shelf and floor mats all as standard. The GXi and EZi models also include electric front windows, metallic paint, central locking, colour co-ordinated bumpers/tailgate moulding and full wheel trims. Kelisa EZi also features a fully automatic transmission and electrically operated rear view mirrors.

The savings of up to £300 over the previous model and the new additions to Kelisa’s already high specification simply reinforce its position as Britain’s best value car. Perodua’s Managing Director, Tim Slaughter, says: "We are delighted to be able to offer customers all the strengths of the original Kelisa with the added bonus of a higher standard specification, exciting new look and even lower prices".
