Perodua has just taken the wraps off the facelifted version of the third-gen Perodua Myvi.
Having received 4,303 bookings by the time it was launched last night, the price of the new Myvi is as listed below:
- Perodua Myvi 1.3G (without PSDA) – RM45,700
- Perodua Myvi 1.3G – RM47,700
- Perodua Myvi 1.5 X – RM49,900
- Perodua Myvi 1.5 H – RM53,900
- Perodua Myvi 1.5 AV – RM58,800
Developed with a cost of RM50 million, notable changes to the Myvi include the upgrade to its safety system, which features the Perodua Smart Drive Assist (PSDA) system which was designed with the safety of the driver and pedestrian in mind.
The PSDA has four features:
- Advance Safety Assist (ASA)
- Driving Assist
- Parking Assist
- Head Lamp Assist
The full suite of these features can be found in the AV variant which also makes it a car with Autonomous Level 2 technology.
This is the first time in Malaysian history that a car company is offering a car with Autonomous Level 2 technology priced under RM60,000.
The next big news is that all variants under the New Myvi will feature a new transmission which is the Dual Mode CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission), replacing the 4-speed transmission. There will no longer be a manual version as well.
According to Perodua, the new CVT is lighter, smoother, quieter, more powerful, and more fuel efficient than the outgoing 4-speed automatic transmission.
We were told that the New Myvi will be able to have a 5% improvement or an additional 1km for every litre of fuel, as well as a 20% improved acceleration.
The New Myvi also features 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. (See illustration attached)
“We are thankful to our customers and to all Malaysians for the support shown to both Perodua and the New Myvi,” Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad said.
He said that Perodua is expecting to register 6,000 units monthly, which would enable the compact car company to maintain sales interest in the Myvi moving forward.
“The Myvi has struck all the right cords with Malaysians and has been widely accepted by the people. This new offering is to ensure that our valued customers are getting the best value as possible,” Dato’ Zainal said.
The Myvi, which was first introduced in May 2005 have sold some 1.3 million units so far and out of that number, 277,329 units were the third generation Myvi.
On a separate note, Perodua is also introducing another value-added all-inclusive vehicle subscription service called Perodua EZ MOBi whereby this service will assist companies in managing their vehicle fleet from the time of procurement, servicing and fleet replacement.
“EZ MOBi represents Perodua’s value contribution towards its customers’ growing mobility needs. The overall package includes vehicle registration, insurance renewal, servicing cost, part replacement cost, courtesy car, vehicle disposal and replacement under one subscription plan,” Dato’ Zainal said.
“The value offering of this service is that Perodua EZ MOBi provides end-to-end convenience to our customers as various packages are available to fit each client’s mobility needs,” Dato’ Zainal added.
One of Perodua EZ MOBi’s uniqueness is that its subscription plan factors in all costs of owning and operating vehicles except fuel usage.
For now, this new service is currently available in the Klang Valley and only for business entities and government agencies.
