RAWANG: Perodua’s third-generation Myvi is getting an upgrade and is now open for booking.

The latest variants of the national carmaker’s flagship model come with upgraded technology and enhanced intelligent safety features, improved fuel economy, sporty new looks and a new colour.

“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,” Perodua president and chief executive officer Datuk Zainal Abidin Ahmad said in a statement.

The AV, H and X variants as well as one of the G variants will have the latest Perodua Smart Drive Assist System, which was designed with the safety of the driver and pedestrian in mind.
