Perodua has introduced two new variants to its UK Myvi line up: the Myvi SE and the Myvi Sport. The Malaysian car maker also announced that the Myvi range, which also includes the manual SXi and automatic EZi, is now Euro 5 compliant.
The Myvi Sport gets a body kit consisting of front, side and rear skirts including “imitation quad exhausts” (yes, that’s the exact phrase used in the press release). Colour coded side mouldings with chrome ‘Myvi’ motifs, chrome door handles and different alloys are the other changes. No rear spoiler, though. Inside, mock carbon fibre inserts are fitted to the instrument panel and door panel switch. Only available with a manual gearbox, the Sport is priced at £7,799 (price includes £1,000 swappage allowance offer).
The Myvi SE is the “luxury model” fitted with dark grey leather. The centre panels of the seats are made from perforated leather, with matching door inserts. Available in manual or auto form, the Myvi SE is priced from £8,399 including the £1,000 trade in deal, which lasts till 31st October. The Myvi is a fair bit cheaper than mainstream superminis in the UK – B-segment car for A-segment money, although the brand counts against it.
The UK spec Myvi is also powered by the K3-VE 1.3-litre engine with 86 hp and 116 Nm of torque. There’s no mention of different figures for the Euro 5 versions. I didn’t know that Perodua is still exporting pre-facelift Myvis until now.
