Appears to be in production body.
The Perodua D63D was confirmed to be in the pipeline last year. Now, funtasticko.net has published fully undisguised images of the upcoming B-segment sedan that shows its exterior.
The D63D is the codename of the B-segment sedan, but it’s real name is yet to be known. Reports suggest that the Perodua D63D won’t be a completely in-house developed product from Perodua. The company may use an existing Toyota/Daihatsu platform.
The Perodua D63D will be powered by Toyota Motor’s 1NR-VE 1.3-litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine currently found in the Toyota Avanza and the Daihatsu Xenia. This engine is manufactured by Astra Daihatsu Motor, an Indonesian subsidiary of Daihatsu. Daihatsu had announced last year that this engine will be manufactured at a new engine plant that will commence operation in mid-2016.
Not much is known about what Perodua plans to offer in the D63D. The Malaysian publication’s report says that the D63D will be equipped with an engine push-start button, as well as vehicle stability control, traction control and other mandatory safety systems for receiving a 5-star safety rating from ASEAN NCAP.
