2020 Perodua Myvi S-Edition vs Myvi GT: Which is your pick? 01

In a rather surprising move, Perodua unveiled the 2020 Perodua Myvi S-Edition in Brunei, alongside the regular model. Nope, Malaysia isn't the first to receive this model.

Called the Myvi S-Edition, it is heavily inspired by the Myvi GT that was shown at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (2018 KLIMS).

However, unlike the Myvi GT that is based on the Myvi 1.5 AV, the Brunei market Myvi S-Edition is based on the entry-level Myvi 1.3G.

Let’s take a closer look and compare both the Myvi S-Edition against the concept car that was shown two years ago.

Exterior – Concept car toned down for production

At first glance, the Myvi S-Edition’s front-end is largely inspired by the Myvi GT, but there are some subtle changes.

For example, the Myvi S-Edition gets a mesh-type upper grille, as opposed to the Myvi GT’s black-finished-with-red-insert front grille. The Myvi S-Edition also loses out on the red highlights found on the concept car.

Towards the sides, it gets new 14-inch alloy wheels, body stickers and a side skirt. Sorry, no fender-filling 17-inch alloy wheels, adjustable suspension, or Brembo brakes here. The Myvi GT’s subtle flared arches aren’t present on the Myvi S-Edition.

As for the rear-end, the Myvi S-Edition is largely similar to the regular Myvi 1.3, with the exception of the tacked-on rear diffuser piece and a somewhat large rear spoiler, very different from the Myvi GT’s neater-looking rear diffuser piece. The clear tail lights of the Myvi GT isn’t offered on the Myvi S-Edition.

Rounding up the exterior are a couple of S-Edition emblems.

Interior – Wait, it’s the same as the regular Myvi

If you were expecting an exciting interior to match the exterior, sorry to disappoint as the Myvi S-Edition’s interior is identical to the Myvi 1.3G, down to the urethane steering and fabric seats.

Never mind the carbon fibre steering wheel of the Myvi GT, the Myvi S-Edition also lacks the lovely red highlights on the gear console, air-conditioning vents, or body-hugging seats.

Powertrain – It’s just a Myvi 1.3

Power is derived from a tried-and-tested 1.3-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that does 95 PS and 121 Nm, mated to a 4-speed automatic.

For the Brunei market, the Perodua Myvi S-Edition is priced at BND 23,300 (~RM 71,666), while the regular Myvi 1.3G is priced at BND 17,246 (~RM 53,045).

Pricey? Indeed, but keep in mind that prices between different countries cannot be compared directly due to difference in tax structures.

Will it come to Malaysia?

There is a good possibility that the Myvi S-Edition will be made available in Malaysia.

However, unlike Brunei’s version that is based on the base 1.3G variant of the Myvi, we can expect Perodua to offer the kit on 1.5-litre variants of the Myvi instead.
