sirion sport 01

PT Astra Daihatsu Motor marketing director Amelia Tjandra has told detikOto that next year could see the arrival of the facelifted Daihatsu Sirion in the country.

“(Translated) At present, there hasn’t been any update, but there will be. Next year we will have an update (facelift),” she said to the Indonesian motoring portal. Tjandra added that the update will involve the exterior as well as the interior, but remained coy on other details, like whether the car would be launched early-, mid- or late-2015.

Indonesia’s Sirion is of course a rebadged Perodua Myvi, exported from the Sungai Choh plant in Rawang. As a result, we’ve always gotten the latest Myvi/Sirion before our neighbours did.

So might we expect the Perodua Myvi to get a facelift soon – maybe before the year ends, or is that too much to hope for? After all, something needs to fend off the upcoming Proton Compact Car
