The Kenari is extremely cheap to buy and you get a surprising amount of kit for such a small outlay. However, few cars depreciate as swiftly as this – buyers can expect to recoup only around 20% of what they paid after three years or 36,000 miles. On top of that, the Perodua warranty covers only two years and 24,000 miles. Not good enough.
Perodua KENARI MPV quality & reliability
You'd expect a car this cheap to have a pretty low-rent interior, but even so, the Kenari's like something from a bygone age. There are swathes of hard, shiny plastic, and some very rough edges. The whole thing has a distinctly flimsy feel that doesn't inspire much confidence about how well it'll last. The engine and transmissions shouldn't give you problems, though.
Perodua KENARI MPV safety & security
Shocking in this day and age. Only twin front airbags are provided as standard, and side and curtain bags don't even feature on the options list. Neither does traction control, stability control, nor even basic items such as anti-lock brakes. Central locking is fitted, but there are no deadlocks and the stereo isn't a unique fit.
