It’s official – Perodua has announced that its popular B-segment hatchback, the Perodua Myvi, will now receive a two-tone colour scheme for the range-topping Advance model, as well as lower prices for both the SE and Advance variants for a limited time

From tomorrow until June 5, the SE will be RM3,800 cheaper, retailing at RM46,168 for the manual version and RM49,168 for the automatic, while the Advance will be priced at RM54,318 (a RM3,650 rebate). The two-tone Advance will be RM800 more expensive at RM55,118; all prices are on-the-road with insurance.

As we’ve seen in the earlier leaks, the Myvi Advance gets a new Ebony Black top to go with the Electric Blue paint scheme. The gloss black finish covers the roof, cant rails, A-, B- and C-pillars, door mirror covers as well as the rear number plate garnish. New door visors, currently an option, are also fitted here.

2016-Perodua-Myvi-prices

The whole thing does give off a look that’s rather reminiscent of the new 2016 Toyota Passo Moda, which is available in a similar colour scheme – a hint of what’s to come for the next-generation Myvi, then?

No other changes have been made, so the Advance retains the same amount of kit, including leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearknob, PVC coil mats, a touchscreen navigation system, a reverse camera, dual airbags and ABS with EBD and brake assist. The existing 102 hp/136 Nm 1.5 litre 3SZ-VE DVVT four-cylinder engine has also been retained.

Additionally, Perodua has also revealed that the 1.3 Premium X and Premium XS variants will be discontinued, as part of a rationalisation of the lineup due to “market demand.” Those looking for a cheaper Myvi will now have to be content with the base 1.3 Standard (the one without ABS, no less), priced at RM40,862 for the manual and RM43,862 for the automatic.
