Compact car of the year – Perodua Axia
Sometimes, all you need is a set of wheels that can take you from point A to point B in a reliable fashion. For decades now, we’ve had cars that do just that. But then came Perodua’s revolution.
The Axia single-handedly raised the bar when it was first introduced, and the new facelifted does that once again. Even in its most barebones configuration, you get an engine with VVT-i. Perodua have added even more value to the product by including an exterior boot release handle, projector headlights, nicer wheels, and driver seat height adjustment. Just some of the many new features that make the best pick for those on a tight budget.
