The new third-generation Perodua Myvi has been officially launched in Singapore.
Two variants are available:
- 1.3 X AT – SGD 64,800 (RM197,093)
- 1.5 H AT – SGD 69,800 (RM212,301)
*Prices are inclusive of GST and the Certificate of Entitlement (COE).
To put things into perspective, the prices of the Myvi's rivals like the Honda Jazz and Suzuki Swift start from about 72,000 SGD and 76,000 SGD respectively.
The launch event was held last Saturday at Perocom Auto’s outlet in Ubi, attracting some 250 customers. Perocom Auto is the sole authorised Perodua distributor in Singapore.
“The current-generation Myvi’s foray into Singapore is significant in terms of brand presence despite the high barriers for entry into this mature market. This also marks the model’s first export destination under the Perodua brand,” said Perodua President and CEO Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“The Perodua Myvi has been very well received by Malaysians, and the enthusiasm has also found its way to Singapore, where there is a niche yet loyal cult following eagerly awaiting the arrival of the third-generation model,” said Perocom Auto’s Managing Director John Ng.
Although small, the Singaporean automotive market is among the most highly-regulated in the region.
The number of new cars registered in Singapore varies a fair amount from year to year, numbering 80,281 units in 2018, 91,922 in 2017, 87,504 in 2016 and 57,589 in 2015, according to Land Transport Authority (LTA) statistics.
Prior to the new Myvi, Perocom Auto, which has been operating in Singapore since 1997, has sold the Kancil, Kembara, Kelisa, first-generation Myvi, Viva, Axia and also the Bezza in the country.
Besides Singapore, Perodua is also exporting the current-generation Myvi to Indonesia, where the model is rebadged and sold as a Daihatsu Sirion.
In Malaysia, over 110,000 units of the third-generation Perodua Myvi have been sold since its launch in 2017.
