The 2019 Seylan Colombo Motor Show in Sri Lanka saw the debut of the Perodua Axia STYLE variant where local Perodua distributor, Unimo Enterprises, are already collecting bookings. Deliveries are expected to begin in the early stages of 2020.
For its debut in the country, the Perodua Axia STYLE is priced at Rs 3.895 million, which is around the RM89,000 mark. That’s a world of difference compared to our local prices standing at RM38,890 (OTR without insurance).
According to Perodua President and CEO, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad, “As Sri Lanka is the Perodua brand’s biggest overseas market and one that has always been accepting of the Axia, with some 3,000 units sold since 2015, it is fitting as the new Perodua Axia STYLE’s first export destination.”
“Sporting rugged-looking bumpers with skid plate elements, all-round body cladding, roof mouldings, a rear spoiler and striking 15-inch five-spoke alloys, the new Perodua Axia STYLE reflects owners’ active lifestyles while retaining all the hallmark Axia qualities of practicality, fuel efficiency, spaciousness and ease to drive,” he added.
As for Unimo Enterprises CEO and Executive Director, Mr Mahesh Gunathilake, “SUVs and crossovers are enjoying a big rise globally and we foresee the same trend taking hold in Sri Lanka. The new Perodua Axia STYLE offers the active and trendy looks of a crossover in a compact, fuel-efficient, dependable and value-for-money package that we believe will strike a chord with Sri Lankans.”
