Perodua Myvi

RM 41,807 - 54,090
B-Segment Hatchback | 1.3L / 1.5L

Perodua has introduced the third-generation Myvi in Mauritius, the third export market after Indonesia and Singapore for its popular B-segment hatchback.

Five variants are available in total, up from the four variants from the 2017 update.

the myvi price malaysia is priced at rm 41,807 - 52,186 and comes in 5 models, offering a 5 years / 150,000 km warranty.

We now learned that although there was absolutely nothing that the driver could have done to avoid the sinkhole, she will most likely have to fork out her own money to repair her car first.

Well, yes and no. Yes, they are both 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i engine from the NR engine family and they are both made in the same Daihatsu Perodua Engine Manufacturing plant in Sendayan Techvalley in Negeri Sembilan.

the myvi 2019 is a b-segment hatchback and prices range from rm 42,790 to rm 54,090. myvi price there are two engines to choose from, a 1.3-litre and a 1.5-litre, both naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol. the latter is shared with the toyota vios, albeit with slightly different tuning.

the myvi price is malaysia’s best-selling car. for anyone looking for a fuss-free daily car, the myvi is a good choice to begin your car shopping journey.

priced from rm 54,090, the myvi 2019 1.5 av is feature-packed to the brim, as the model includes a range of segment-first features, such as the advanced safety assist (asa) driver assistance system and led headlights.

It’s safe to say that the Iriz is perhaps one of the best in its segment when it comes to ride comfort and handling, and definitely punches well above its segment.

The integrated SmartTag reader on the Myvi saves the need to change the device’s battery as the reader draws power from the car’s battery itself.

Unlike the more sophisticated system found in the Proton X70 that can control the air-conditioning system, sunroof, and windows, the one system found in the Iriz is only capable of music streaming, weather forecast, and navigation features.

The incident happened in Jalan Maharajalela, which is under the purview of DBKL. However, DBKL claims that the sinkhole was caused by leaking underground water pipes, which is managed by Syabas.

Granted, owners can take advantage of the system’s MirrorLink feature to get Google Maps and Waze to display on the display, but MirrorLink is a rather clunky system to begin with. Apart from being compatible with limited Android devices, MirrorLink requires the phone’s display to be constantly turned on and will drain your phone battery rather quickly.

9V batteries are not the friendliest batteries on the market. Quality ones are expensive and cheap versions meant that the reader would run out of juice faster.

if you’ve ever car-pooled with a myvi price owner you would be left in awe of their ability to go through tolls without needing to lift a finger.

the proton iriz was conceived back in 2014 as proton’s effort to counter the ever-popular myvi price. back then, the iriz offered considerably more safety equipment than the myvi 2019, but response from the market remained lukewarm at best.

yesterday, news of a myvi 2019 plunging into a 3 metre deep sinkhole in jalan maharajalela in kuala lumpur broke the internet. it didn’t take long before dr. strange-inspired memes flooded social media. myvi 2019 the memes were funny, but the driver of the myvi 2019 could have been seriously injured by the sinkhole. fortunately she was unscathed but surely it must have been a traumatic experience.

In short, the Proton Iriz drives really well.

If you’re a handy person, you can opt to purchase an integrated SmartTag system set off online and install the device yourself.

Proton engineers have perfected the ride and handling aspect of the Iriz, allowing the little hatchback to strike the fine balance between ride comfort and handling.

Don’t worry if your car doesn’t come with built-in SmartTag though, there are plenty of after-market solutions.

the myvi has always offered superb value for its price as well as a spacious interior with bulletproof reliability. as an everyday car getting from point a to b, the myvi checks all the right boxes. besides, myvi price the myvi 2019 nameplate now spans across 3 generations, with the latest one being the most advanced one they’ve made yet. in a mere 14 months since the all-new myvi was launched, perodua has delivered more than 100,000 units of them to customers.

In addition, the PCB can be activated three times per engine start. YES, ONLY THREE TIMES! This means that if the PCB has been activated on three different occasions or three times under the same occasion during your trip, the system will not be frozen up. Nevertheless, you can always wake the PCB up by restarting the engine and reset the counter to 3.

According to a report by The Sun (print edition), before the insurance company can process the payout, it will have to ascertain which party was responsible for the sinkhole.

and no, they have slightly different engine codes, 2nr-fe for the myvi price and 2nr-ve for the myvi price . however, it’s just a different suffix for daihatsu and toyota.

Having the SmartTag reader built into the car meant that thieves looking to make a quick buck will not be able to make a quick job of breaking a wind shield and just stealing the reader away.

Inside it’s bigger than you expect, with a fairly generous legroom in the rear, but that’s also because it has a tiny boot. The rear seats are given a greater priority because Perodua believes that the rear seats are used more often than the boot, an observation that we won’t argue against.

here’s a brief summary of the equipment difference between all five variants of the proton iriz. starting with the cheapest myvi 2019 variant, standard equipment include: myvi 2019 for the updated proton iriz range, our pick would be the iriz 1.6l premium variant, as it offers all the bells and whistles one would expect from a b-segment hatchback.

Yes, in theory she could file a claim with her car’s insurance company, but realistically, it could be a lengthy process before she can get her settlement.

the myvi price is one of malaysia’s best-selling models right now, as it offers great value for money, encompassing an extensive list of passive and active safety equipment at an affordable price point.

cars featuring the 2nr-fe engine include the myvi 2019 . as for the 2nr-ve engine, it sits in the myvi 2019 from what we can gather and for all intents and purposes, they are the same engine albeit with different tuning paired to a different transmission. bet the myvi looks like a steal now next to the yaris right? trust us though, the refinement of the yaris is on another level compared to the myvi.

perodua president and chief executive officer dato’ zainal abidin ahmad said, “the third-generation myvi price has been very well-received in malaysia and we believe mauritians will appreciate its many qualities. perodua aims to export 3,270 cars in 2019 – a 50% increase over last year’s 2,184 units. so far this year we have sold over 1,600 units outside malaysia and launched the myvi and axia in singapore and the seychelles respectively.” myvi 2019 “the myvi’s mauritian debut should edge us closer to our year-end export target and boost perodua’s brand exposure internationally, what with mauritius being a major tourist destination,” he added.

However if you are going to use your car only to drive yourself to work and back and for little else, the 1.3X is good enough.

if ride comfort is your top priority, then the proton iriz should be on your shopping list, as it offers a sublime ride comfort when compared to the myvi price. the myvi's harsh ride and average handling cannot come close to the iriz.  myvi price in terms of infotainment system, the infotainment system found in the range-topping iriz 1.6l cvt premium is considerably better than the touchscreen unit found in the myvi 1.5 av, as it offers voice command and 4g connectivity.  myvi price however, the myvi 2019 counters back by offering more advanced driver assistances systems, such as pre-collision warning, pre-collision braking, front departure alert, and pedal misoperation control. in addition to that, the myvi price also boasts more cabin space than the iriz.

Another problem with RFID is that it also has the tendency to get in the way of other frequencies like when the car is entering a parking lot with a season pass.

I know what you’re thinking, when you purchase a SmartTag device, we were given a holder to attach the device to our screens.

When driven at lower speeds, the Iriz soaks up road irregularities with ease, without jolting the occupants.

Even when driven at a quicker pace, the Iriz takes it up in stride, largely due to its rigid body structure which allows the suspension to do its work effectively. Even its electric power steering is able to provide ample feedback to the driver, elevating the driver’s confidence behind the wheel.

the myvi 2019 also offers better resale value, proven reliability, and good after-sales support.

So if you want reliability, an integrated SmartTag reader is definitely the most useful thing to include in your car.

and looks like more car manufacturers are jumping on board with the trend as well. the limited edition myvi price has a smarttag reader built into the truck!

What about the RFID you may ask? Many are still not on board with the RFID trend and those who have taken the efforts to try it out has reported about the lack of reliability.

With that said, the cost of owning a vehicle is more than just the purchase price, as periodic maintenance is also crucial over the course of ownership.

Proton updated the Iriz a couple of times, with the latest update being introduced earlier this year.

It is also worth noting that the infotainment system, although built on the Android platform, is designed heavily around Baidu’s services, so no Google applications to be found here. Instead of Google Maps or Waze for navigation purposes, you get Baidu maps. As for music streaming, there is no Spotify – drivers will need to make do with Joox.

over the course of 5 years/100,000 km, owners of the myvi 2019 are expected to pay rm 3,095.22 for maintenance. myvi price however, similar with other car manufacturers, perodua’s maintenance schedule only show the minimum required services, while recommended items are usually not shown. myvi 2019 what are recommended items you ask?

their horsepower figures differ slightly as well. the 2nr-fe produces myvi price of torque while the 2nr-ve, depending on exact model, produces myvi 2019 also, the 2nr-fe is typically mated to a continuously variable transmission (cvt) whereas the 2nr-ve pairs with a conventional 4-speed automatic transmission.

Or if you’re not too confident with your handy work, there are always experts like LokaTAG ready to assist!

over 1 million myvis has left the production floors since the car was unveiled to the public in may 2005. it’s not hard to see why the myvi price can capture the hearts of most, if not all, malaysians.

the operating speed of pcb and pcw can reach 4 to 30 km/h, suitable for commuter use. with a stereo camera, the system scans frontal objects and makes an audible warning to the driver when an impending collision is detected. if the driver is not operating the car (steering or braking), or when the speed difference is below 20 km/h compared to the front vehicle, the vehicle will automatically force the brakes to stop immediately. if the relative speed difference is between 20-30 km/h, the system could only help to alleviate the severity of danger  myvi price rather than completely shun the collision.

To be fair, both B-segment hatchbacks are excellent choices, and both have their advantages and shortcomings.

The Myvi is a one of the most reliable cars on the road. The powertrain is uninspiring, lacking in sophistication, but that also means that there's nothing much that can go wrong. It’s fairly cheap to maintain and has good resale value too.

we revisited the new myvi 2019 2019 in the top-spec 1.5 advance variant that comes with myvi 2019 , to see whether it is still the best car to buy even after being 2 years on the market.

Before we get started, it’s best to address the elephant in the room – the “Hi Proton” voice command system found in the Iriz differs from the system found in the more expensive Proton X70.

recommended items, or as perodua calls it pro care, are items that are replaced based on usage, not mileage. as such, items such as brake pads are only replaced when they have worn down to the minimum level. similarly, the air filter can be reused for a while before being replaced. myvi price interestingly enough, we’ve also noticed that perodua lists spark plugs as a recommended item when the myvi hits the 50,000 km mark, and a mandatory item at the 100,000 km mark.

Touch N Go is currently working to phase out the SmartTag readers to concentrate more on the RFID system, but while they perfect the system, we’ll remain loyal to the tried and tested technology that is the SmartTag device!

Perodua has also stated that the Pro Care maintenance schedule is preventive and recommended to maintain the cars at an optimum condition.

The pick of the range is the 1.5 AV, which comes with ASA – a safety feature that automatically engages the brakes if the driver is distracted or not reacting fast enough to avoid a potential accident ahead. It’s the only car in its class to come equipped with such feature.

The built-in SmartTag reader is the most thoughtful device ever to be included in a car and it has further given the Myvi a huge lead as the best value-for-money car in our market.

Our only gripe with the Iriz is in the powertrain department. Although the Punch-sourced CVT has improved leaps and bounds since it was first deployed in 2014, overall refinement remains subpar when compared to contemporary alternatives such as the Honda Jazz or Toyota Yaris. Rubberbanding can still be felt when the Iriz is given the beans, though cabin quietness has improved marginally since the last update.

The classic hand-held SmartTag reader has a large 9V battery and many has discovered that the new generation devices run on a shorter battery span.

it’s also rather well equipped. even the cheapest 1.3-litre variant comes standard with electronic stability control and the cabin has a novel anti-snatch hook for handbags. the interior looks quite good for a budget car. myvi price the downside is that the myvi doesn’t handle fast sweeping corners very well and its ride can be quite firm and bumpy. it’s also quite noisy when driven at highway speeds. in other words, it’s best used as a city car. myvi 2019 other popular b-segment alternatives to the myvi 2019 are the proton iriz (rm 36,700 – rm 50,700) and honda jazz (rm 70,242 – rm 87,707). the a-segment kia picanto (rm 49,888 – rm 57,888) might be from one segment below, but it's still a credible alternative.

set to be distributed by local distributor raouf dusmohamud & co ltd, the myvi price is priced at 699,000 mauritian rupees (~rm 81,300) for the 1.3g at and 775,000 mauritian rupees (~rm 90,140) for the 1.5h at. both prices are on-the-road with insurance.

But the trend of breaking wind shields just to rob the car of its SmartTag device is still an ongoing issue causing owners to hide away their devices and only taking them out when entering toll booths.

when the third-generation myvi price hatchback was unveiled, its advanced security assistant (asa) became a heated topic. pre-crash warning (pcw), pre-crash brake (pcb), front exit alarm (fda) and pedal misoperation control (pmc) are all at the price of rm55k.

while on the topic of maintenance, the myvi price also requires 0w-20 myvi price , while the proton iriz uses myvi 2019 , owners are expected to pay rm 2,930.82 over the same 5-year/100,000 km period. however, proton does not list out the recommended items such as brake pads in their maintenance schedule.

How well does the “Hi Proton” voice command work?

 offers better handling but is smaller inside and the automatic transmission isn’t very smooth in stop-go urban traffic, which is odd considering that it’s a cvt. it also offers an intuitive ‘hi proton’ natural language voice control infotainment. myvi 2019  offers a lot more space, and its unique ultra seats allow the rear seats to fold in many more ways, allowing the little car to swallow more cargo than many larger cars. it drives and rides better but it’s also a lot more expensive. there's a hybrid option too.

Myvi’s fuel consumption is quite competitive. Considering the petrol price, Myvi is definitely an economical car for family use.
