It's finally here, the moment that everyone has been waiting for. In Malaysia, Perodua has unveiled the 2021 Perodua Ativa (D55L). 

At the moment, there are three variants available. The cheapest Ativa 1.0 X costs RM 61,500, while the most expensive Ativa 1.0 H costs RM 66,100. The top-of-the-line Ativa 1.0 AV will cost RM 71,200. The Special Metallic colours add RM 500 to the listed price, while the two-tone (black roof) option costs RM 800 more than the standard colour option and RM 300 more than the Special Metallic option. All prices are applicable for on-the-road use only and does not include insurance. 

The Perodua Ativa is powered by a turbocharged 1-litre three-cylinder engine that produces 98 PS and 140 Nm and is mated to a CVT-style automatic transmission. The Perodua Ativa is a front-wheel drive-only model. According to Perodua, the Ativa can return 5.29 litre per 100 km (18.9 km/litre) in the ECE test cycle. It's also worth noting that the Ativa's Dual-mode CVT (D-CVT) differs from standard CVTs.

When it comes to the exterior, Ativa has a more daring design. Perodua Ativa has a distinct front bumper from the Daihatsu Rocky and Toyota Raize in the Japanese market. The front grille of the Ativa extends into both the LED headlights and the L-shaped front fog light surrounds. LED headlights are standard equipment on all models.

With the Ativa, Perodua offers two wheels options: the 1.0 X gets silver-finished 16-inch alloy wheels, while the 1.0 H and 1.0 AV get 17-inch dual-tone units.

For the interior, it is almost similar to the Daihatsu Rocky and Toyota Raize. The Perodua Ativa's cockpit, including the dashboard and steering wheel, is largely identical to the Rocky and Raize. 

The Ativa's air-conditioning controls are one of the significant differences between its Japanese siblings. Unlike the Rocky/Raize, which has two knobs, the Ativa has a button-controlled system with two memory settings (fan speed and temperature). 

The infotainment system is also different, as the Ativa's 9-inch touchscreen system does not support Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, instead relying on SmartDeviceLink (SDL). A front centre armrest, push start button, rear seats with recline function, and a two-stage luggage floor are standard on all Perodua Ativa models. There's also a full-size spare. The fancy 7-inch digital instrument cluster seen here is only available on Ativa 1.0 H and 1.0 AV models. This digital instrument cluster, like the Japanese Rocky and Raize, can be customised with four different themes and can set birthday and anniversary reminders.

In terms of safety, all variants of the 2021 Perodua Ativa are fitted with the Perodua Smart Drive Assist ADAS suite, encompassing features like Pre-Collision Braking (PCB), Pre-Collision Warning (PCW), Pedal Misoperation Control (PMC), Front Departure Alert (FDA), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). 

Adaptive headlights (Adaptive Driving Beam) are added to the H and AV variants, while the top-of-the-line AV variant adds features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keep Control (LKC), Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).  

The complete colour chart of this new Perodua Ativa is also revealed, as shown in the image below. Glittering Silver, Granite Grey, Cobalt Blue, Pearl Delima Red, and Pearl Diamond White are the five body colours available. Out of these colours, the latter two are available with the two-tone black roof option, only for the AV variant.

The Ativa will also come with Perodua's GearUp accessories, such as the Blaze bodykit, Blaze seat covers, rear bumper protector, and LED scuff plates, among others. Another nice feature that Perodua brought to the masses was keyless entry and push start, which came standard on the Myvi and was optional on the Axia. The Ativa's keyless entry is a definite upgrade; there's no physical button to press because the driver's door handle has an electrostatic sensor that only needs to be touched.

To summarise, the Perodua Ativa is priced at RM61,500 for the X, RM66,100 for the H, and RM71,200 for the AV, all inclusive of SST. The AV with pearl and two-tone paint options costs the most, at RM72,000. The package includes a five-year/150,000-kilometer warranty.
