Perodua shows off new GearUp bodykit for 2022 Myvi in new teaser video



Think the 2022 Perodua Myvi facelift looks just a bit too tame for a “supercar”? Good news – the national carmaker will be offering a new extended range of GearUp accessories for the B-segment hatchback soon, and is now offering us our first glimpse at the souped-up body kit through a teaser video on its YouTube channel.

Unlike past years or the other recent models, Perodua did not introduce the GearUp body kit alongside the car during its launch late last year, instead opting to wait for nearly five months to finally give us a first look at the getup. Worth the wait? You decide!

Based on the footage, it seems like the national carmaker is aiming for something very aggressive for the Myvi’s GearUp kit in order to appease the younger buying crowd. The front bumper of the bodykit is dominated by the new chunky gloss-black panels on the sides, while the existing diagonal X-shaped motif is also further highlighted with the boomerang-like fangs.

From what we can see, there also seems to be a gloss black front splitter, bookended by body-coloured skirtings on the sides. “Angry” is one way to put the new look, we think!

Here’s the standard un-kitted 2022 Perodua Myvi for comparison.

While the official teaser video only shows the front of the car, prior leaks on the interwebs have also revealed a new rear wing at the back with two longer extensions nearer to the sides, a new rear bumper with extended skirting and a diffuser-look trim, plus a two-tone side skirts.

The new GearUp bodykit will be sold in conjunction with the myriad of branded accessories, including fancier floor mats, door sill plates, leather seat covers, as well as visors for the windows.

In terms of availability, Perodua’s Facebook post says that the GearUp kit will be coming “soon” to all authorised showrooms nationwide, but stopped short on a firm launch date. Do you prefer the Myvi with the GearUp kit, or are you in the camp of “less is more”? Let us know in the comments below!
