What is it?
OK, so it's got stacks of room inside and comes with a fair amount of kit. But that's about all we can say to recommend the Perodua.
The Myvi is based on the last generation Toyota Yaris, so it's actually fairly nimble and composed at speed. There's a decent amount of grip from the chassis and body roll is kept to a minimum.
The one engine offered in the Myvi is an 86bhp 1.3-litre 4-cylinder lump. As disheartening as that sounds it's considerably better than Perodua's previous efforts. Although that's not saying much is it?
On the inside
That weird roofline gives the Myvi a significant leg up in this area. Lots of headroom in both front and rear, and with that the advantage of a decent amount of leg room too.
Like Peroduas past, the Myvi looks and feels dreadfully cheap due to the budget materials the company is forced to use, but to it credit everything does seem to be well glued together.
Discounting the inadvisable auto' gearbox option, the Myvi is both cheap to buy and cheap to run thanks to a low insurance grouping and impressive fuel economy. But a car with such an undesirable badge on the bonnet is going to do badly at resale.
