Launched on Thursday, the new Perodua Myvi has taken the country by storm. But a question on a lot of people’s minds is, well, what’s next? Specifically, what would happen if Perodua decides to build a sedan version of the Myvi, like how it built the Bezza out of the Axia?

Wonder no more – Photoshop rendering wizard Theophilus Chin has used his skills to visualise what a four-door Myvi would look like, and it doesn’t actually look too bad. The longer, lower body suits the conversion better than its tall, boxy predecessor, and even the rather ungainly Bezza.

The front end is identical to the donor car, and the six-window glasshouse has been retained, giving the sedan a sleeker profile than the Bezza. Around the back, the short deck incorporated classy L-shaped tail lights and a number plate recess relocated on the tailgate instead of the bumper. The black rear valance with integrated dual exhaust exits is unlikely to be on the production version, however.

To recap, the new third-generation Myvi has been designed completely in house featuring greater sophistication, equipment levels and safety. Longer, wider but lower than before, it gets items such as standard-fit LED headlights, keyless entry, push-button start and stability control, as well as an integrated Touch ‘n Go reader, up to six airbags and autonomous emergency braking.

Power comes from new 1.3 and 1.5 litre engines from the Toyota NR family with DOHC and Dual VVT-i. The smaller 1NR-VE is the same engine found on the Bezza, and it makes 94 hp at 6,000 rpm and 121 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The larger 2NR-VE, on the other hand, has been lifted from the Toyota Vios, and it produces 102 hp at 6,000 rpm and 136 Nm at 4,200 rpm.
