As we speculated last week, it is confirmed that the Perodua Myvi has been updated, and the new version of the best-selling model in Malaysia for the past decade is now officially open for booking at all Perodua showrooms nationwide.
According to Perodua, the Myvi, which is also its flagship model, will come with upgraded technology, enhanced intelligent safety features, improved fuel economy, sporty new looks and a new colour.
The million dollar question of how much the new Myvi will ask for has also been answered, as the Perodua has revealed that the price range for the New Myvi is from RM45,700 to RM58,800 (price range is for Peninsular Malaysia and without insurance).
The New Myvi variants will include the 1.5 litre AV (Advance Variant), 1.5 litre H variant, a 1.5 litre X variant as well as two 1.3 litre G variants. All variants will come only with an Automatic transmission as Perodua has discontinued the manual transmission for the Myvi.
The AV, H and X variants as well as one of the G variants will have the latest Perodua Smart Drive Assist (PSDA) system, which was designed with the safety of the driver and pedestrian in mind.
The Perodua Myvi is also introducing a new colour, Cranberry Red, which is only available for the AV. Other colours include Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Lava Red (not available for the AV), Granite Grey, and Electric Blue.
Powertrain aside, we can also expect cosmetic enhancements and new driver assistance features found in the Perodua Ativa like the Pre-collision Braking (PCB), Front Departure Alert (FDA), and Pedal Misoperation Control (PMC) to be fitted into the updated Myvi.
“These changes represent our efforts to meet our customers’ growing expectations while at the same time offer greater value by introducing the Next Standard for Malaysia’s most accepted model, the Perodua Myvi,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Zainal Abidin said.
“We have also increased the fuel efficiency of the New Myvi as it can now go up to 22.2km per litre (tested on the 1.3L variant) from 21.1km per litre previously,” Dato’ Zainal said.
