Thinking of purchasing a new Perodua vehicle? You might want to hold on and wait a little longer.
There have been reports that Perodua may be rolling out a new Myvi model later this year. According to MIDF Research, the arrival of the next-generation hatchback could debut as early as the 4th quartet of this year.
The first Myvi model, which was released 6 years ago, has already been discontinued. Seeing as how the latest Toyota Passo/Daihatsu Boon has been in the market for approximately 1 year already, it’s fair to assume that motorists will soon get to see the debut of the new Perodua model.
To quote Paul Tan, the new Perodua Myvi “is expected to use a range of new 1.3 litre and 1.5 litre Toyota NR engines, including the 94 hp/121 Nm 1NR-VE 1.3 litre Dual VVT-i mill used in the Bezza”. The aforementioned engines can be compared to “either a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 4-speed electronic automatic transmission (E-AT)”.

While there’s no official confirmation yet, the new technologies may include keyless entry, push button start, an Eco Idle automatic engine start/stop system, and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) on range-topping variants.
