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. The GX Aero was offered only with a manual transmission, was only available in Mistik Red, a bodykit consisting of side skirts, a different spoiler and different styling for the rear lighting units. The interior of the GX Aero featured ‘cubic’ printing on the centre dashboard console surfaces.[2][3]

In September 2003, a hybrid version of the Perodua Kenari was shown however it didn't make it to production. The prototype used a 659 cc petrol engine which produced 30 kW/41 bhp of power and 57 Nm of torque plus an electric motor that generated 18 kW/25 bhp of power and 100 Nm of torque.[4]

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.[5]

The sale of the Kenari was discontinued in 2009 with no direct replacement model.
