This 5-star rating applies to all variants, and not just for the high-spec units—the four airbags, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control, Emergency Stop Signal, ISOFIX, reverse sensors and seat belt reminders for all seats are standard. The 1.5 variants has six airbags and a host of other safety enhancements.

Perodua is ensuring that when you buy a car from them, they’ll do everything to make it a rewarding—and safe—choice. Kudos.
