“Finding Nemo” Perodua Kenari
Hi guys, I’m sure that some of you are the owner of the Perodua Kenari and have the experience driving the Perodua Kenari car.Perodua Kenari is one of Malaysian’s favourite mini MPV.It is a small five-seat compact car or supermini car produced by Perodua. The Kenari is based on the first and second generation Daihatsu Move kei car (minicar).So, here we want to share some picture of modified Perodua Kenari.
In a world where there’s a keen focus on value for money, the Perodua Kenari should be a car for our times. It is compact, reasonably spacious and uses a small, fuel-efficient engine.
Simple but smart.
This modified Perodua Kenari/Daihatsu Move looks aggressive!

The Kenari is powered by a 1.0 litre DOHC engine. In 2004, the Perodua Kenari was given a new fascia with flush headlights. The name Kenari is a Malay name for a bird species, Canary. A wild birds are mostly yellow-green, with brownish streaking on the back. The species is common in captivity and a number of different colour varieties have been bred.
The Perodua Kenari is nippy and economical around town: it also comes with plenty of standard kit for a cheap price.
The ‘tall boy’ looks, popular in Japan, have not been so accepted here and various styling ideas have been attempted. One was the Kenari Aero version which gave it a sporty image and that attracted a lot of under-30 years old buyers.
After studying market needs further, Perodua have found that ‘bold and outstanding’ are what customers want and finding that a large proportion of Kenari buyers have been single males, a new version known as the Kenari RS has been created which will become the ‘image leader’ for the model.

Below are some comments about Perodua Kenari from some of Kenari Users.
I live in rural SW Scotland and use a Kenari as a second car. It’s been excellent. It’s now done 48000 miles and never broken down in the 5 years I’ve owned it. Very economical – 53mpg on average – and an incredibly practical load carrier.
I love this mini-MPV! I am not looking for a gutsy, 0-100km/h at 6secs and gas-guzzling monster (screams not green!). It’s cheap to run, does 40+ in town and 50+ on motorway, bags of room and the upright sitting position does not produce DVT (deep vein thrombosis)! It’s nippy and, yeah, it’s gutsy (believe it or not). I have had drivers staring at me in disbelief when they are overtaken! And you know what, it’s great for touring!
