Perodua started the next chapter of the Myvi story yesterday night with the launch of the 2022 Perodua Myvi facelift. Much like the Volkswagen Golf in Europe and the Proton Saga here, back in the day, the Myvi is a package that seems to fit universal needs. It just works.

Perodua has shifted some 1.3 million units of the mass appealing “people’s car” since 2005, and the current third generation has found 277,329 homes in four years. A mid-life update was due, and instead of just doing the minimum – a new feature or two to accompany a bumper/grille change, you know the drill – they threw a kitchen sink worth RM50 million and 137,000 man hours at the D20N.

That’s substantial investment for a facelift, but look at the improvements in the D51A and you’ll see why. The actual facelift is a heavy one, with new headlamps and the debut of LED daytime running lights. The interior receives new meter panels and small changes based on user feedback (the ‘Off’ button for the AC panel, for instance), plus big differentiation for the red-heavy AV.

But the big news is the switch from the trusty 4AT to the new D-CVT gearbox from the Ativa. This required the SUV’s more advanced electrical architecture as well, but the gains at both ends are worth it – 5% better fuel economy and 20% faster 0-100 km/h times, with a bonus of lower noise levels.

No less important and perhaps more showroom/headline-friendly are the new safety features. Just think about it: adaptive cruise control with lane keep on a Myvi, which didn’t even have regular cruise control before this. Level 2 autonomous features are joined by ASA 3.0 (the latest version, as per Ativa), blind spot monitoring and auto high beam. In a sub-RM60k car.

Usually, companies upgrade their products because of competition, trying to one up the rival. Not so here. Frankly, P2 could have got away with just a bumper change because the just-facelifted 2022 Proton Iriz and Persona are nowhere near the four-year old pre-facelift Myvi G3 in efficiency and safety, the two most important factors for regular car buyers. And they could have kept all the top stuff for the costlier Ativa, but they did what they did anyway.

We’ve detailed the Myvi facelift in our launch report and walk-around video yesterday, and you can check it out for all you need to know on the D51A. This post is spec-by-spec comparison that we’ve compiled for you to have a quick glance at the specs.
