Perodua Kelisa – Still Britain’s best value motoring

13th August 2007 Print
Perodua Kelisa With prices starting at just £4,499 delivered, the 5-door Kelisa city car from Perodua still represents the best value motoring in Britain today. Equipped with a new car specification at used car prices, the Kelisa EX features power-assisted steering, driver and passenger airbags, side impact protection, seat-belt pretensioners, and an advanced engine immobiliser. A nippy but extremely frugal 1.0 litre DOHC DVVT 16v engine powers Kelisa across the range, which includes alongside the entry level manual EX the more highly specified five-speed manual GXI (£5,499) and the fully automatic EZI (£6,399.

For just a little bit more money, owners of the GXI and EZI models will benefit from electric front windows, central door locking, improved full cloth upholstery, colour-matched bumpers and tailgate moulding, protective side mouldings and full wheel trims. Thanks to the continuation of current offers from Perodua¹, customers will gain the additional benefit of a free SE pack on these models, consisting of an RDS Radio/CD player and reverse park sensors, worth £377. With the offer of free metallic paintwork worth £200 also extended, Kelisa buyers can take advantage of almost £600 worth of free goodies on what is already a bargain-price car.

Not only is Kelisa extremely competitively priced and packed full of generous extras and incentives, but Perodua customers will also continue to save money with Kelisa long after they have driven it away from the dealership. Producing fuel economy as efficient as 64.2mpg² on the Extra Urban cycle, along with service intervals set at 10,000 miles, has meant that Kelisa has consistently achieved top ranking in the lowest pence-per-mile running costs figures over 60,000 miles/3 years³. Add to that a low insurance group rating (3A) combined with a low-level of VED and Kelisa certainly proves to be a very affordable car to keep on the road.

Incredibly, Kelisa further enhances its value-for-money package with its ability to retain a significant amount of residual value. A recent survey by EurotaxGlass’s has found that smaller cars tend to lose the least amount of money over a typical three year ownership period, and in cash terms the Perodua Kelisa was shown to depreciate the least – losing just £2,800 over three years. This is of course great news for anyone wanting to trade in their nippy little Kelisa for the larger Perodua Myvi supermini and get the best value part exchange from the deal.

The Perodua Kelisa offers the ideal modern motoring package for those wanting to get the most out of driving without having to pay a premium for the privilege. Fully furnished with the latest in safety and performance technology, frugal and efficient in terms of fuel consumption and C02 emissions, and enhanced by an impressive long term residual worth, the Perodua Kelisa really does represent the best value motoring in Britain today.
