New facelift Perodua Myvi - Causing me to be Indecisiveness now...

Recently the Malaysian producer perodua announced their new face lift myvi. Initially I read about the facelift at paultan.org. From the looks in the photos the newly face lift myvi looks ugly. Some say it looks like a pig. Honestly my first impression was...WHAT THE HELL DID THEY DO TO THE CAR!

Honestly, all these while myvi has been my favourite Malaysian made car. Perodua a competitor to our main national car producer proton has been out beating them in terms of sales and also car reliability.

Last few days, I accidentally saw the new Myvi at one of the car showrooms. The real car looks nice and more curvier. I went and take look at the interior of the car and I fell in love with it. The interior had some make over which gives it a comfortable and a touch of elegant feel. The new dashboard was out of this world and I totally fell in love with it. The new meter cluster looks so much better than the older siblings.

The audio system had some upgrades too. The new audio system is able to detect bluetooth and also has a USB port in case one wants to put some music into the thumb drive and listen to it in the car. But note that it only for the 1.3L premium variant only. As for MP3 capabilities it is available for all variants.

The passion for safety. A new safety feature for the Perodua Myvi is the Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) & Brake Assit (BA). The EBD and ABS is only for the 1.3L premium variants only also. Like the older siblings the new Myvi comes with a dual SRS-airbags, also this can be found in the 1.3L premium variants.

Other features for the new Myvi would be seat height adjuster, UV protection windows which protects up to 91% and windscreen and Shopping hook. The shopping hook and seat height adjuster is available for the premium variants only.

The test drive...

After looking at the Myvi. I decided to test drive the "new car" or the car with the new look. The test drive the 1.3L SXi variant which is the premium but it is manual. Stacy followed me on this test drive, joy ride. Once in the car, you can feel that the car is quite spacious and comfortable. Start of the engine, the interior of the car seems quiet. Hit the first gear and we are off. The car is smooth and easy to handle. There is not much engine noise in the interior. The car runs smoothly and brakes are very responsive. The pickup for this car is good. I did a U turn and it was also smooth and easy to handle. At 80 km/h it runs at 2000rpm which is quite ok. The only sad thing is that the front car plate has been taken off so I can't take it for a longer drive.

Overall, the Myvi is a good car. I would love to get it but there are a lot of things that have to consider. So it keep me in a indecisive stage now.


For now, I will not think about getting the car first. Must make the plans out properly because this is a big investment for me.
