New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP) chairman Dr Wong Shaw Voon said, "It is the first sedan car by Perodua and it is also the first Perodua car to be installed with ESC.
Furthermore, it is also Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) compliant, in line with the National Automotive Policy.”
