The Perodua Myvi is The Car You’ve Never of Heard But Always Wanted
Auto News

All hail the Perodua Myvi, all hail the facelifted Perodua Myvi. The Perodua Myvi is dead, long live the updated Perodua Myvi. It is a car you’ve never heard of but secretly always wanted. Here’s one for the little guy and they don’t get any littler (that is a word) than the all-new, facelifted Perodua Myvi. We don’t know how much different the facelifted 2022 Myvi is from the previous iteration, but mark my words, as with all facelifts (unless you are a celebrity) there really isn’t much we can spot that is significantly different from one to the other. The Myvi is powered by a 4-cylinder petrol engine available in two derivatives, a 1.3-litre and a 1.5 litre. Power, performance and efficiency really don’t matter too much here.

Externally the Myvi receives upgrades to the grille design, headlights,  rear light clusters, bumpers, body-colored door mirrors. It’s all very minor stuff, very much expected during an automotive up-cycle.

For a small city car, the Myvi is stuffed full of big car tech, such as an engine start button, auto start-stop, LED daytime running lights (the latter being offered on higher-spec models only). Assisted steering and even cruise control… people drive these things on a motorway?

Although the interior is also refreshed, you wouldn’t know it. Lower-spec models are designed to feel like dungeons and higher-spec models will feel like you’re living in a palace. In the business community, such disparities are often referred to as, cost-benefit analysis.

The Perodua Myvi also gets an upgraded infotainment system. Unfortunately, the Myvi is only offered with a CVT transmission. Thankfully there is simply no demand for a manually assisted gearbox. Interestingly the CVT unit uses a set of split gears instead of a set of pulleys and belts. This directs more energy to the engine without losing power, and also yields an efficiency gain of 5-percent.

The Perodua Myvi is made for Maylasia only and is not available in the UK, if it was motoring journalists would say “it’s surprisingly good”, or about £10,000.
