Word has it that the Myvi Premium 1.3 is no longer shipping, and it’s set to be replaced by the Special Edition 1.3. The photo snapped by reader Pdud Kronos earlier today of the SE making its way to the showrooms virtually confirms that this is what’s coming about on March 14.
The second-generation Myvi has gone the SE route with the SE 1.5 version in late 2011, and now the 1.3 litre is set to follow suite with a SE dress-up job as well, nearly two years after the 2011 model made its debut.
A bit of poking about reveals ads for the car, with a new shade called Ozzy Orange added to the colour list. Additional kit for the Myvi SE 1.3 is reported to be a SE bodykit made up of front and rear bumpers, side skirt and spoiler, as well as a SE front grille and a new exhaust finisher.
No mechanical changes known, but other items reported for the Myvi SE 1.3 are a monotone interior, which also gets painted centre air-condition vents, meter cluster and lower centre cluster, all for about the same price as the outgoing Premium variant. So, it turns out that it’s the Myvi SE 1.3 instead of the Alza as initially thought (those darned indicators in the headlamps, tricky!).
