The six variants comprise E (RM24,090), G (RM33,490), GXtra (RM34,990), Style (RM38,890) , SE (38,890) and the range-topping AV at RM43,190. All prices are on-the-road without insurance.
All the variants come with the 1.0 litre three-cylinder engine, which produces 67hp at 6,000rpm and 91Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm.
The E variant comes with a five-speed manual transmission while the rest is equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The addition of the Style variant gives the Axia a crossover look with rugged front and rear bumpers with skid plates, all-round body cladding, clean lens tail lamps and a rear spoiler. The Style is the only variant which comes with 15-inch wheels (the rest comes with 14-inch wheels) and an Sunrise Orange colour.
"The new Perodua Axia Style embodies the desire to be different; to unleash the fun and active side that exists in all of us. It is upbeat and trendy, and at the same time retains all the hallmark Axia qualities of practicality, spaciousness, clever design and ease to drive," said Perodua president and chief executive officer Datuk Zainal Abidin.
In terms of safety equipment, Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control has been introduced to variants GXtra and up.
The range-topping AV variant however, gets the Advanced Safety Assist (ASA) 2.0 suite consisting of Pedestrian Detection, Pre Collision Warning, Pre Collision Braking, Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control. All variants come with two airbags and ISOFIX.
Colours available are Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Midnight Blue and Lava Red for variants Gxtra, SE and AV, while the Style has all the previous colours except Lava Red and offers Sunrise Orange instead. The G variant gets Ivory White, Glittering Silver and Midnight Blue and the E variant gets Ivory White.
"The 2019 Perodua Axia offers Malaysians much more in an entry-level vehicle than ever thought possible. It offers major advances in safety and style never seen before in this segment and yet retains its affordability," said Zainal.
Also present at the launch was Perodua chairman Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin.
