With the new 04 registration looming there has never been a better time to buy a Perodua. Perodua cars provide discerning drivers with more for their money when it comes to equipment levels, versatility and efficiency. The Kelisa GXi super mini delivers outstanding fuel consumption of 64.2 miles per gallon over the extra urban cycle while the Kenari mini MPV is not far behind at 56.5 mpg. Additionally, at just 13.8 pence per mile the Kelisa continues to be the UK’s cheapest car to own and run over 3 years/60,000 miles, taking into account purchase price, running costs and depreciation, according to CAP.
The excellent standard specification of Perodua cars exceeds the expectations of many small car customers who mistakenly assume that low prices equate with low levels of standard equipment. The entry-level model Kelisa EX, which starts at £4,999 delivered*, features five doors, power steering, twin airbags, side impact protection, seat belt pre-tensioners, an advanced engine immobiliser, rear door child safety locks, a folding rear seat backrest, rear wash/wipe, parcel shelf, floor mats and a heated rear windscreen all as standard.
The Kelisa GXi adds further equipment to the standard spec including electric front windows, metallic paint, central locking, colour coordinated bumpers/tailgate moulding, full wheel trims and 2-tone cloth upholstery in addition to all the features listed above. The automatic Kelisa EZi replaces the manual transmission with a 3-speed fully automatic gearbox and also includes electrically operated rear view mirrors.
Kenari features almost exactly the same standard specification as Kelisa GXi with the added benefits of a side-opening rear door, individually reclining/folding rear seats, protective side mouldings, rear tailgate spoiler, sports exhaust tail pipe trim, 2-tone bumpers, front windscreen graduated top tint, and a stereo radio CD/cassette with removable front panel. This spacious and adaptable vehicle starts at just £6,130 delivered* which is remarkably affordable for such a high specification car.
There are some fantastic deals currently available on the entire range of vehicles through Perodua’s network of seventy dealerships. In addition to this the newly launched Perodua Financial Services can tailor purchase packages to suit customers’ individual needs. All Perodua vehicles come with a comprehensive consumer package including a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty, 6 year anti-perforation guarantee and 1 year free roadside assistance while both Kelisa and Kenari fall into insurance group 3 which helps increase their affordability. Test drive a Perodua today and discover the benefits of low-cost, high quality motoring.
