All-new Perodua Myvi is here!

The all-new Perodua Myvi has been launched. Two engine variations are offered – 1.3-litre and 1.5-litre – with prices ranging between RM44,300 and RM55,300.

Both engines are new. The transmission remains a four-speed automatic.

The Myvi was designed locally by an in-house Perodua team. The body is now 205mm longer, 30mm lower and 70mm wider than its predecessor with an interior that now offers more legroom – almost 1metre in total. Meanwhile cargo space has grown and is now 277 litres.

The all-new Myvi has been awarded an ASEAN NCAP five star rating on account of the new safety features in the Advanced Safety Assist package which consists of four features:

  1. Pre-Collision Warning that warns the driver of imminent collision
  2. Pre-Collision Braking that applies the brakes if the driver fails to act.
  3. Front Departure Alert warns drivers when the car in front has moved.
  4. Pedal Misoperation Control to prevent the car moving if the driver puts the car into Drive instead of Reverse when there is an obstacle, like a wall, in front.

The ASA features are linked to the forward facing stereo camera.

Other features in the Myvi are a built-in toll card reader and anti-theft hook.

ASA and the built-in toll card readers are only offered in the top-of-the-range Advance Version.

Standard features include LED headlights with follow-me-home function and headlamp levelling, LED rear combination lamps with light guides, smart entry and push-button start.

Standard safety features include ABS, EBD and VSC. The 1.5 variant has 6 airbags, the 1.3 has four.

The six colours offered are Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Mystical Purple, Lava Red, Peppermint Green (1.3-litre variant only) and Granite Grey (a new colour for 1.5-litre variant only). There’s a five-year/150,000km warranty.
