Myvi 2011 launched @PWTC

the Perodua Myvi five-door hatchback has been replaced by a new model that promises better safety, fuel efficiency and a string of new enhancements.

Launched by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin here last night, the new Myvi is available in six variants with prices between RM43,900 and RM57,400 some RM500 to RM700 more than the previous model.

Buyers can choose between three grades of Standard, Premium and Elegance and transmission type of four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual.

 At the back, the car gets sleeker LED combination lamps.

On the outside, the height of the car is 5mm lower at 1,545mm than the old Myvi while the width has been retained at 1,665mm. The new Myvi is shorter in overall length by 60mm, and the sleeker front and rear bumpers make it look more compact.
Turning radius remains the same at 4.7m to ensure easy parking in tight spaces, easy cornering and U-turns and better maneoverability.

Buyers of the new Myvi will find the cabin a revelation.

The interior length is 15mm more than the old Myvi and this translates to extra legroom. In addition, the front-rear couple distance is 4mm more, resulting in more rear legroom for better comfort. On the other hand, the driver-passenger couple distance remains the same at 680mm.
Perodua engineers have managed to tweak the existing 1.3-litre engine for extra performance and the adoption of electric power steering plus improved aerodynamics all aid to make the car achieve more power while giving better mileage.

On the outside, the new Myvi has a deeper sloping bonnet and an air spat on the front bumper to make the car more fluid. Downward scoop accentuates the new projector headlamps.
