The 2017 Perodua Myvi needs no introduction and for this model year it has been facelifted with a host of updates to styling and features. It is Malaysia’s best-selling model to date and the reason for this is its reliability, affordability and spaciousness. With prices starting from RM40, 862.16, the Perodua Myvi faces stiff competition from models like the Proton Iriz, Honda Jazz, Suzuki Swift, Mitsubishi Mirage, Proton Satria Neo and Kia Rio.
There are two naturally aspirated engines on offer – a 1.3-litre and 1.5-litre. The entry level mill outputs 90hp and 117Nm of torque, and is found in the three most affordable variants. The rest get the more powerful 1.5-litre 3SZ-VE mill that develops 102hp and 136Nm of torque. Both engines can be had with either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic transmission, with the power being sent to the front wheels.
Exterior highlights on 1.3-litre variants are standard type front fascia, reflector headlights, turn signal integrated side mirror and 14-inch eight-spoke alloy sport rims. Upgrading to the higher capacity variants will get you features such as the SE type face with projector headlamps and spiral design 14-inch rims.
Standard kit across the range include a monotone instrument panel, 60:40 split fold rear seats, a built-in tissue compartment, seven cup holders, a four speaker sound system, a multi-function steering wheel, power windows and reverse sensors. Reserved for top of the line variant is leather semi-bucket sports seats, a multimedia entertainment system with navigation and reverse camera.
