History[edit]

The Perodua Kenari was launched in 2000 with three variants: Standard (EX) (5-speed manual), Deluxe (GX) (5-speed manual) and EZ (4-speed automatic).[1]

In April 2003, the facelift model was introduced. Changes included new headlights, new front grille and new 14" alloy wheel design which became standard throughout the range of 4 models: GX, EZ, EZ Special (EZS) and GX Aero.[2]

The GX Aero variant was introduced with the facelift and featured full skirting, a different designed meter panel, a spoiler and high mounted rear combination lamps offered with only one color: Mistik Red.[2]

In November 2006, the Perodua Kenari RS was introduced.[3]

The sale of the Kenari was discontinued in 2009 with no successor.
