Myvi safety features explained-

With most of the right boxes ticked, this petite hatchback has carved a niche in the segment. It carries most of the prominent bits, especially in the higher variants. However, being a B segment hatchback, it misses out on some of the amenities to curb pricing, albeit safety hasn’t been compromised.

Let us have a look at the standard kit which comprises of the following radical safety tech.

  • Front airbags
  • Side airbags
  • Anti-lock-braking system
  • Electronic brakeforce distribution

The four airbags, including dual front and side airbags, are standard across the line-up. Another basic feature is the anti-lock-braking system that prevents wheel lock-up on a wet surface or during panic braking, while the electronic brakeforce distribution channels braking force based on the load on each wheel.

While these basic features are standardized, there are other vital bits that can be availed even with the basic grade.

Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)- This feature keeps the vehicle stable and prevents it from spinning by retarding speed in each wheel which further prevents oversteering or understeering.

Traction Control (TRC)- This system applies brake individually to each wheel to provide more traction while accelerating on a slippery surface. It also reduces engine power to curb wheel spin for improved traction.

Emergency Stop Signal (ESS)-It enables hazard lights to flash at high speed when brakes are applied abruptly at high speed. This warns other vehicles and prevents collision. The hazard lights switch to a normal flashing speed if the vehicle stops completely, preventing the possibility of rear-end collision.

Other features such as reverse sensors, seatbelt reminder, anti-snatch hook and ISOFIX system with top tether are some of the other features that come standard with Myvi.

The mid-spec variant in the carline comes with some prominent additional features, these are hill start assist and front corner sensors.

Hill Start Assist (HAS)- HSA prevents the vehicle from rolling back on a steep slope. This feature is useful when driving on winding routes, especially around hilly terrains.

While Advanced Safety Assist, reverse camera, side & curtain airbags and solar & security window film are available with the top-spec variant only.

Perodua Myvi ASA

Advanced safety Assist (ASA)-The ASA 2.0 available on the Perodua cars is a safety suite comprising active safety features such as pre-collision warning, front departure alert, pre-collision braking and pedal misoperation. The pre-collision warning warns the driver ahead of a collision and applies brake automatically if the driver does not respond to the audio visual warning. On the other hand, the pre-collision braking, also known as autonomous emergency braking, applies soft and hard braking to reduce the impact.

As for front departure alert, it alerts the driver when the car in front has departed in queue or traffic. While the pedal misoperation control detects a wall within four meters and prevents the vehicle from accelerating forward.
