Automotive rendering wiz Theophilus Chin gives us a renewed idea here of what the upcoming replacement for the Perodua Viva could look like.

When the wraps came off the Daihatsu A-Concept (the vehicle that previewed today’s Toyota Agya and Daihatsu Ayla twins) at IIMS back in July 2011, Theo wasted no time in churning out a ‘next-gen Perodua Viva‘ based on the concept.

While that one was rather ‘wishful thinking,’ this time he takes the Toyota Agya as a reference point. The rendered vehicle features Perodua’s corporate grille, chrome-signatured fog lamps, tail lamps with Myvi-like graphics and an enlarged rear window. The number plate is tailgate-mounted instead of rear bumper-mounted as on the Agya.

The successor to the Perodua Viva will be the cheapest new car in the country when it launches in the third quarter of 2014. It will likely be powered by an aluminium-block engine, which is set to be produced at a new RM1.3 billion facility, located next to Perodua’s existing Sungai Choh, Rawang plant – more details here.
