Here Are Some Bodykit Ideas For Your Perodua Ativa
Get ready to see heavily-kitted Ativas roaming about on our roads soon
As was the case with the Aruz, Axia and some other models that came before it, the recently-launched Ativa is available with a selection of GearUp accessories including a bodykit. While it represents good value for money as it can be factored into the hire purchase, the factory-fitted bodykit may not suit everyone’s tastes.
Since the Ativa shares the same underpinnings as the Daihatsu Rocky and Toyota Raize, the compact crossover from Rawang will definitely be compatible with bodykits originally designed for the two JDM models. This opens up a wide range of eye-catching selection of bodykit options from official manufacturers.
Of course, some owners may prefer a standard Rocky or Raize conversion kit but those who wish to add some real pizzazz to their Ativa may take a look through Modellista’s catalogue, which contains two different bodykit designs. First up is the ‘Advance Blast Style’ aerokit, which adds, among other things, beefy front, side and rear skirting, and a roof-mounted spoiler.
Meanwhile, the ‘Elegant Ice Style’ comprises pretty much the same components, although they appear a little more understated. Apart from the parts mentioned, customers will also be able to opt for square muffler tips and garnishes for the headlights, tailgate and rear windscreen.
Ativa owners will be happy to know that Toyota Racing Development (TRD) also has something to offer. Not similar to the kits by Modellista, TRD brings a stylish two-tone red and black finish, which, however, may appear gaudy when paired with Pearl Delima Red and Cobalt Blue. That being said, the kit is evidently more stylish and cleaner compared to Modellista’s.
If these bodykits fail to tickle your fancy, you can always go for lesser known names from the realm of aftermarket. For instance, there’s the VIP-style Zeus kit from Japan’s M’z Speed, as well as the aggressive RS-style kit developed by KUHL Racing. Been dreaming of having a Lamborghini Urus sitting on your porch? This Albermo BDS kit just might do the trick.
The point is, you will never be short of choices should you decide to deck out your Ativa. Just make sure that the bodykit of your choice is sourced from official channels and fitted by professionals. Fitting an aftermarket bodykit should not void the warranty as long as it does not connect in any way to the vehicle’s electronics and/or CAN bus system. However, we recommend you giving Perodua a call first, just to be on the safe side.
