Perodua Kenari

The change to ‘03’ registration plates in March makes this the perfect time to take another look at the range of vehicles from Perodua UK. With continued low prices, an improved consumer package and the impressive range of features included as standard Perodua cars provide considerable value for money. The current range consists of the Kelisa 5-door supermini which starts at only £4,999 and the Kenari 5-door mini MPV which costs just over £6,000.

Tim Slaughter, Managing Director of Perodua UK says: "Whichever Perodua model customers choose, we believe Perodua offers the best value for money motoring currently available in the UK."

Perodua cars boast a remarkable range of features as standard equipment in view of their economical prices. These include driver and passenger airbags, power steering, side impact protection, seat belt pretensioners and rear door child safety locks. Both the Kelisa and the Kenari are fitted with advanced engine immobilisers for added peace of mind. For customers willing to extend their budget slightly further than the entry-level Kelisa EX at only £4,999*, the higher specified Kelisa GXi is available at £5,699*. This model also includes electric front windows, colour matched bumpers/body mouldings, metallic paintwork and central locking as standard. Both Kenari models feature a stereo radio CD/cassette, side opening rear door and individual folding/reclining rear seats.

There are plenty of other reasons to buy a Perodua, including the enhanced consumer package which was recently introduced. This means the Kelisa EX now has a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty, with 1 year free roadside assistance and a 6 year anti-perforation guarantee in order to match every other model in the range. Another good reason is the fact that the Kelisa EX is still the cheapest car to own and run over 3 years/60,000 miles according to the independent motor research specialists CAP. This works out at an exceptionally low 13.6 pence per mile and takes into account purchase price, running costs and depreciation. Added to this is the fact that all Perodua models fall into insurance group 3, which increases their affordability.
