This price, when converted to Malaysian Ringgits is about RM286,000 today.
It’s sold in Singapore by Perocom Auto Pte Ltd. This organisation has sold Perodua vehicles from a single outlet in Ubi since 1997. So far, Singapore has received the Kancil, Kembara, Kelisa, first- and third-generation Myvis, Viva, Axia and Bezza. This is the Aruz’s first export market.
Here’s the press release with more information.
The Perodua Aruz has officially entered its first overseas market
– Singapore. At launch, it is priced at SGD92,999 (RM286,409*), inclusive of Goods and Services Tax and Certificate of Entitlement (COE).
“The Aruz’s arrival in Singapore marks the first seven-seater offered by Perodua in the island nation,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“With nearly 58,000 units sold in Malaysia since its debut in 2019, the Perodua Aruz was Malaysia’s best-selling SUV overall in 2019 and 2020. We are looking forward to sharing the Aruz’s space, safety, versatility, durability, practicality and fuel efficiency with our southern neighbours,” he added.
The Perodua Aruz’s aluminium-block 1.5 litre Dual VVT-i four-cylinder engine joins forces with an electronically-controlled automatic transmission and Eco Idle to yield a rated fuel efficiency of up to 15.6 km/l.
Its versatility comes courtesy of 60:40-split second and 50:50-split third rows that can be slid, folded and tumbled for a multitude of seating and loading configurations. Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), ISOFIX and six airbags contribute to a full five-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating.
Other standard equipment include LED headlamps, 17-inch two-tone alloys, keyless entry and start, and a touch-screen infotainment system with reverse camera display.
The Perodua Aruz is sold by Perocom Auto Pte Ltd at their sole outlet in Ubi. The sole authorised Perodua distributor in Singapore since 1997, Perocom Auto has sold the Kancil, Kembara, Kelisa, first- and third-generation Myvis, Viva, Axia and Bezza there.
Besides Singapore, Perodua also exports to Brunei, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, the
Seychelles, Fiji and Indonesia (where the Myvi is sold as the Daihatsu Sirion).
