2015-Perodua-MyVi-Facelift

It was reported that PT Astra Daihatsu Motor in Indonesia will be launching a facelift for the Daihatsu Sirion in the country next year. Indonesian motoring portal detikOto reported that the car will be launched with updates to the exterior and interior.

Indonesia’s Sirion is of course not the JDM Daihatsu, but is instead a rebadged Perodua Myvi, built in Malaysia and exported to the country from Perodua’s Sungai Choh plant in Rawang.

As a result, we always get a new Perodua Myvi before Indonesia gets a new Sirion, so there’s a high chance the facelifted Myvi will come in 2015 as well. It’s about due now since the current Myvi was launched in June 2011, with the SE and Extreme coming later in September 2011.

A photo of what could be the Perodua Myvi facelift snapped in what appears to be a storage area began making its rounds around social media and forums over the course of last week, so rendering whiz Theophilus Chin decided to try to show us what the 2015 Perodua Myvi facelift could look like based on the photo. The leaked photo only shows the front of the car, so the wheels here are just a suggestion.

The car’s headlamps have been revised to bear a more family resemblance with the recently launched Perodua Axia, while the front grille takes on a Hyundai-like hexagonal shape. This actually looks like it could be the facelifted SE/Extreme since it looks rather aggressive.

The Myvi XT could take on a different look like how it is with the current line-up, or who knows – the Myvi XT could be dropped since the Perodua Axia now has an almost ‘cross-segment’ positioning, offering a relatively big interior for an A-segment car.
