ASEAN NCAP has released the full results and crash test video for the 2015 Perodua Myvi facelift – the refreshed B-segment hatch now comes with a four-star safety rating, one star up on the pre-facelift.

Central to the improved safety rating is an enhanced vehicle structure that better withstands frontal impacts in line with global standards, according to Perodua president and CEO Datuk Aminar Rashid Salleh. The four-star safety rating applies to all six Myvi variants.

Specifically, the new safety rating consists of an 11.55 point Adult Occupant Protection rating and a 71% Child Occupant Protection Rating.

Four stars is actually the maximum the Myvi can get because it does not have 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.
