Perodua is clearly proud of the facelifted Myvi’s four-star ASEAN NCAP rating, which is one star up from the pre-facelift’s three-stars. The awarded stars are featured prominently on the company’s website homepage and the new crash test result sits on top of the Myvi’s safety page.

“We have enhanced the vehicle structure to better withstand frontal impacts in line with global standards,” said Perodua president and CEO Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh at the launch of the 2015 Perodua Myvi this morning. The four-star rating applies to all six variants of Malaysia’s best selling car.

Going deeper, the new four-star rating consists of an 11.55 point Adult Occupant Protection rating and a 71% Child Occupant Protection Rating. Four stars is actually the maximum that the Myvi can get because it does not come with electronic stability control, the safety net that ASEAN NCAP has made mandatory to get the maximum five-star rating.

This is up from the pre-facelift car’s three-star rating, which consists of a 8.71 point Adult Occupant Protection Rating and 54% Child Occupant Protection Rating. In addition, the 2015 Myvi passed the UN R95 side impact crash test requirements as per JPJ rules.
