Most people enjoy surprises, we would say. The anticipation only builds to make the moment more memorable when it finally does but we’re a weird bunch. We prefer to catch a glimpse of the present being wrapped (in this case, not very well) before we get our hands on it.

Which leads us to this – spyshots of a group of facelifted Perodua Myvis being loaded onto trailers and loitering by the road in Section 17, Petaling Jaya. The entire ensemble is on display with the 1.3 and 1.5 models, of which they can be differentiated by the accompanying front grille and wheel design.

Bookings for the Perodua Myvi facelift were opened earlier this month, with prices beginning at RM41,500 (on-the-road with insurance) for the base 1.3 Standard G model and topping out at RM58,500 for the flagship 1.5 Advance variant. No mechanical changes are touted with the same engine/gearbox combo soldiering on.

Additional goodies on the refreshed variant include front parking sensors (available on all but the base 1.3 Standard G), an anti-snatch hook and a retractable cup holder located under the driver’s right air-con vent. The facelifted Myvi also boasts a four-star ASEAN NCAP rating over the pre-facelift’s three-star score.

With several equipment crossing over between different variants, here is a quick rundown on what’s available on each spec:
