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.
