So far, the new Perodua Myvi has been rendered as a sedan, a crossover and even a hot hatch. Now, Photoshop wizard Theophilus Chin is showing us what a three-door version of Malaysia’s car of the moment would look like with his latest work.

The result is a car that’s somewhat reminiscent of the Proton Satria, with longer front doors, a low-slung roofline and a classic two-box profile. The front fascia also appears to have been stretched further back, making for a sleeker, more aggressive face.

At the rear, Chin has given the car single-piece tail lights, a larger spoiler and a tailgate handle integrated into the lower edge. Rounding off the sporty look are the turbine design alloy wheels and a panoramic roof that probably won’t be offered on a production Perodua anytime soon.

The likelihood of a three-door Myvi actually making it to production is likely even slimmer than a hot hatch version. The market for three-door hatches in Malaysia is practically non-existent – even Peugeot, the last holdout offering such a bodystyle for the 208, ditched it when it introduced the facelifted version earlier this year (GTi model notwithstanding). Still, it does make for quite a handsome car, doesn’t it?

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 Dual VVT-i engines from the Toyota NR family. 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. A five-speed manual gearbox and a four-speed auto is on offer.
