The Perodua Rusa is a microvan manufactured by Malaysian automaker Perodua, and based on the Daihatsu Zebra and Daihatsu Hijet Maxx. Launched on March 6, 1996, with a 1.3 litre engine, followed by the 1.6 litre range on May 14, 1997, the Rusa is the first van to be produced by a Malaysian automotive company.

Three variations of Rusa vans are offered: The CX (1.3 litre, two seat version), the EX (1.3 litre, five seat version) and the GX (1.6 litre, seven seat version). The CX is primarily intended to serve as a freight vehicle, while the EX and GX are intended for private use. The van is also used by Malaysian police and fire fighting forces.

The vehicle's name "Rusa" is a Malay translation of "Deer". Later replaced by the Perodua logo, the van's original logo was a galloping deer.
