The Perodua Myvi is a supermini/subcompact hatchback manufactured by Malaysian car maker Perodua since 2005. Based on the second generation Daihatsu Sirion/Boon and Toyota Passo, the Myvi is the result of Perodua's collaboration with both Toyota and Daihatsu. The Myvi is the best selling car for 5 consecutive years in Malaysia from 2006 to 2010.
Equipment levelsThe Myvi was made available in five variations: 1.0SR (5 speed manual), 1.3SX (5 speed manual), 1.3EZ (4 speed auto), 1.3SXi (5 speed manual), and 1.3EZi "Premium" (4 speed auto). A Myvi "Special Edition" was also made available, featuring a bodykit encompassing modified bumpers, sideskirts and a spoiler. The Myvi was also made available with dual airbags and ABS.
Colors available on the Myvi include Ebony Black, Olive Green, Glittering Silver, Ozzy Orange, Classic Gold, Mistique Red, Mocha Silver and Pearl White. The facelift features a new colour range which consist of Medallion Grey, Ivory White, Pearl White, Klasik Gold, Mistik Red, Ebony Black, Caribbean Blue and Glittering Silver. The Perodua Myvi SE is available in Ivory White, Ebony Black, Glittering Siver, Pearl White or a special Tangerine Orange exclusive only for the Myvi SE.
Performance and designThe Myvi boasts either one of two water-cooled, four-stroke engines derived from the first generation Daihatsu Sirion: A 1.0 litre EJ-VE engine with three in-line cylinders, or the Toyota Passo: 1.3 litre K3-VE engine with four in-line cylinders; both engines employ Dynamic Variable Valve Timing (DVVT) systems and conventional electronic fuel injection (EFI).
In addition to raw performance, features previously uncommon on Perodua cars were inherited from the Sirion to the Myvi. Among them are 4-hole injectors, foamed urethane injected to the A-pillar, centre pillar and B-pillar for noise insulation, immobiliser systems and pedestrian injury reduction body construction. Other notable features include underbody air flow regulating items, resin intake manifolds and cylinder headcovers integrated with air cleaner cases (for 1.0 engines) and flexible flywheels for reduced vibration during running (for manual transmission).
