Now this is a surprise. According to a posting on Naza World’s Instagram account, the newly facelifted Perodua Myvi will make its debut at the “Riuh Bersama Perodua” event at Naza Mekar’s Perodua showroom at TTDI this Saturday, May 7.

The image posted depicts the refreshed model for 2016 (a facelift arrived in 2015) alongside the Axia and Alza. The words “introducing new Myvi 1.5 facelift” is an obvious indication that no change to the car’s mechanicals will be done. Therefore, expect the 1.5 litre 3SZ-VE DOHC four-cylinder petrol engine to retain its position under the hood, paired to either a five-speed manual or four-speed auto.

As for its updated looks, we’ll have to use our imagination (or wait for this Saturday), as the image doesn’t provide any hint on what the facelifted Myvi will look like. Some may speculate that the all-new Toyota Passo and Daihatsu Boon may serve as an inspiration here, both inside and out, though it may be a little far-fetched considering both models were only introduced just weeks ago.

Intrigued? So are we, but we’ll have to wait for the aforementioned event that takes place this weekend before we can get more details on the refreshed hatchback, including its pricing. For now, what do you think the facelifted Myvi will look like?
