Perodua Myvi: Top features

Perodua recently released the sales numbers for October 2020 that recorded the highest-ever monthly sales in the brand’s 27-year history with 26,852 units. And guess what? Topping the Perodua’s sales charts was none other than the Malaysian favourite Myvi. The petite hatchback has been the best-selling car in the country for a while now and its month-on-month sales records show Malaysians’ love for it.

Back in July, Perodua gave the Myvi a refresh for 2020; the biggest improvement being the addition of the latest Advanced Safety Assist 2.0 suite of systems to certain variants. In today’s story, we highlight the top features of the Perodua Myvi, but before that have a look at its price.

For a lot of buyers, what really matters is what kind of features their new car possesses. In this matter, the Perodua Myvi offers a lot of stuff that makes it a worthy model, let’s take a look at some of those in detail.

Sporty exterior elements

Although Myvi features a mundane styling, the exterior trim has a bunch of sporty elements, which make it stand out among others in the segment. These include LED headlamps, chrome finishing on door handles and alloy wheels, front bumper with skirting, side skirting, and rear spoiler. The level of sportiness allows the car to appeal to a wider spectrum of audience.

Energy Efficient Vehicle 

The hatchback is available in two engine options - 1.3-litre, and 1.5-litre. The lower mill powers the G and X trims, while the higher one can be availed with H and AV grades. Perodua says that both mills are EEV units that work with low vibration and noise levels and provide an exceptional fuel economy. The hatchback also equips the Eco Idle System, which automatically stops the engine when the vehicle is idle and resumes back when the brake released thereby reducing fuel consumption as well as emissions.
