New 2021 Perodua Myvi facelift now open for booking – RM46k to RM59k!



You’ve probably already seen the leaks, but it’s now finally confirmed by Perodua with their first official teaser – the new 2021 Perodua Myvi facelift is coming very soon, and is now available for booking, with pricing ranging from RM45,700 to RM58,800!

According to the press release, the new 2021 Perodua Myvi facelift will be available in five variants – the 1.5 AV, 1.5 H, and 1.5 X, alongside two 1.3 litre G variants. All variants are now equipped with an automatic gearbox (manual transmission dropped), and according to the latest rumours, we might actually see the ancient 4AT gearbox being switched out for a more modern CVT!

Of course, there’s no official mention of that just yet, but the press release provided by Perodua does somewhat hint at the new gearbox – particularly along the lines of “improved fuel efficiency”.

“We have also increased the fuel efficiency of the New Myvi, as it can now go up to 22.2km per litre (tested on the 1.3L variant) from 21.1km per litre previously,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.

Other new additions on the 2021 Perodua Myvi will include enhanced safety features, including the Perodua Smart Drive Assist (PSDA) system on the AV, H and X variants, as well as one of the G variants.

The PSDA suite is first unveiled alongside the Perodua Ativa, and is a step-up from the ASA 2.0 that’s currently offered on the Myvi, as it now uses two new stereo cameras for better detection (including pedestrians and motorcycles), and allows for more features.

On the Ativa, the PSDA system includes the ASA 3.0 suite (autonomous emergency braking, pedal mis-operation control, front departure warning), plus Lane Departure Warning and Prevention systems, Blind Spot Monitor, and Level 2 autonomous driving capabilities such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist.

Also included in the umbrella term are the Parking Assist (parking sensors, reverse camera, rear-cross traffic alert), plus Headlamp Assist (Auto High Beam or Adaptive High Beam).

Based on how Perodua packaged the Ativa, we’d assume that the range-topping AV variant of the new 2021 Myvi will be the one to get all the bells and whistles, but ASA 3.0 will be standard across all variants – although, of course, we’ll have to wait and see for official confirmation.

The Ativa’s stereo camera is located behind the rear-view mirror.

Also new is a new Cranberry Red colour option for the AV variant, as seen in the teaser photo above. The photo also shows off slightly the redesigned front end of the new 2021 Perodua Myvi, featuring a larger grille flanked by new headlights, and a reworked front bumper with vertical LED daytime running lights on both edges, replacing the round fog lamps.

“These changes represent our efforts to meet our customers’ growing expectations while at the same time offer greater value by introducing the ‘Next Standard’ for Malaysia’s most accepted model, the Perodua Myvi,” Dato’ Zainal added.

As mentioned above, the new 2021 Perodua Myvi will be priced from RM45,700 to RM58,800, which are on-the-road prices, without insurance, and inclusive of the sales tax exemptions that have recently been extended to June 2022. The new Myvi is now available for booking at all Perodua showrooms nationwide.

It’s an increase over the board for the pre-facelift model (barring the base 1.3 G Manual variant), so we’ll see if that means a significant change in its powertrain (new gearbox!) to necessitate the price rise!
