Daihatsu’s Malaysian national car “Axia” has a major facelift

On February 14, 2023, Daihatsu will implement a major facelift and launch the A-Segment small car "Axia" produced by Perodua, a local joint venture company in Malaysia.

The Axia is a small five-seater hatchback that is popular as a national car that pursues low price and fuel efficiency. The previous generation model has sold about 570,000 units since its launch in September 2014.

Adopted A-Segment DNGA chassis platform for the first time

Through this major facelift, Axia adopts the DNGA A-Segment dedicated chassis platform for the first time. It is the third DNGA product after the small SUV "Ativa" and the seven-seater MPV "Alza".

The engine newly adopts a 1L inline 3-cylinder engine with a variable valve timing system, and the transmission continues to use the D-CVT of the previous model. In addition, the fuel consumption performance is improved by reducing the weight of the vehicle.

Compact but impressive design and spacious interior

Taking "Powerful & Aggressive" as the design theme, it creates a compact yet presentable appearance, and ensures a spacious interior and storage space.

In addition, new functions have been added to the collision avoidance assistance system "Smart Assist" optimized for Malaysian road environments such as high-speed driving, and safety equipment such as blind-spot cameras are also equipped.

The suggested price starts from about 1.17 million yen.
