GHK Motors, the sole distributor of Perodua, presents the all-new Perodua Myvi and the Myvi S-Edition with a fully equipped body-kit into the Bruneian market.
A spacious and practical car, the Myvi has been around for over 15 years and is one of the best-selling and iconic cars in Malaysia, thanks to its affordability and versatility.
The all-new Perodua Myvi highlights four main elements which consist of Modern technology, Youthful design, Versatile space and Intelligent safety with each beginning letter cleverly spells out MYVI.
What it’s like outside
Youthful and energetic in design, is the first impression of the all-new Perodua Myvi.
The youthful character of the vehicle gets an even more dynamic look with a sleeker and aerodynamic design for better performance. Moreover, it’s aggressive appearance is marked by a stylised front grille and radiant headlamps.
Apart from the dynamic body design, the Myvi also looks good wearing 14-inch alloy rims.
The Perodua also features LED headlamps, a follow me home function and shark fin antenna to give it a sportier look.
Moreover, the entry-level car was designed to be easy to drive. The increased height over a passenger car provides excellent visibility and makes getting in and out a breeze while the body size makes it easy to manoeuver.
In addition, the car is available in three colors of Glittering Silver Metallic, Lava Red Metallic and Ivory White Metallic.
Inside: more spacious than ever
If space and versatility are paramount, there is quite simply no better option than the Perodua Myvi.
Once inside, we were very impressed with the roominess of the ride.
In terms of interior, the Myvi offers functionality and a supremely generous amount of headroom and legroom making the Myvi a spacious all-rounder.
The Myvi exudes a solidly put-together and user-friendly package with a cabin that comfortably seats five passengers, where they can easily enjoy trips to any destination.
Moreover, what also helps adds to the feeling of space is the large window area.
Front and rear passengers will not feel claustrophobic as the Myvi is a spacious car that features flexible seating arrangements and a boot space that measures up to 277L and can fit up to four travel bags.
In terms of safety, the Perodua impresses with its intelligent safety features.
The car is equipped with four Airbags (near the driver, front passenger and sides), a Reverse Sensor, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EDB), ISOFIX system with top tether for child safety and seat belt pretension.
Moreover, the Myvi is equipped with Traction Control (TRC) and Vehicle Stability (VSC) features to improve safety when driving on slippery roads.
On top of that, the Perodua Myvi was awarded 5-stars from the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) for South-east Asia countries.
Driving the Perodua Myvi
The Perodua Myvi impresses further on the road, powered by the all-new Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) engine of 1.3L 4 cylinder, Dual VVT-i which comes in 4-Automatic Speed transmission that creates a smooth and quiet drive.
As soon as you drive the new Mvi you will see that this is the car you should buy. The driving experience is exactly as you would expect in an entry-level car expect: light, agile and smooth
The first thing that caught our attention is how well the Myvi rides. When you sit in the driving position, it is easy to get comfortable and adjust the steering wheel and the seat.
The Myvi may be compact in size, but it’s as fun to drive on the curvy roads from Rimba to the Universiti Brunei Darussalam’s (UBD) area thanks to its sharp handling and precise, well-weighted steering for the driver to have more confidence behind the wheel.
One of the most appealing things about the Myvi is how it combines small car fun with big car sophistication. The Myvi handles sharp-edged bumps and potholes with sufficient poise.
Car stability and handling were great. We were able to drive confidently at the Tungku Highway at the speed of 100km/h.
The car has good high-speed stability and feels planted. However, ride quality is excellent at slow and medium speeds.
The power produced by the engine is sufficient for cruising and that it is fuel-efficient, perfect for long journey drives.
Overall, the Perodua Myvi 1.3 Standard is the perfect starter car for young adults who just started their career or university students looking for a cost-effective car.
The Myvi offers great value for money, and not just because it is affordable to own but it is comfortable, refined and practical and comes with plenty of standard kits.
