Malaysia launch in November, better than Iriz’s CVT, new 2022 Perodua Myvi D-CVT explained 01

This is it, after three generations of the Perodua Myvi being synonymous with the four-speed automatic transmission, it’s finally time for the dated transmission to bow out.

News surrounding the Myvi receiving the CVT transmission first surfaced last week, when Indonesia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs revealed two unnamed models with the M804RS model code and 1.3 CVT suffix have been added to the system.

Recall that the Indonesian-market Daihatsu Sirion is a Perodua Myvi that’s imported from Malaysia and bears the M804RS model code.

Two times five equals ten and it’s certain that the new CVT transmission will also be fitted to the Malaysian-market Myvi.

What’s D-CVT?

The D-CVT's planetary gear set

Now, before you start groaning at the mere mention of CVT, let us remind you that the D-CVT is not your regular belt- or chain-driven CVT.

In the case of the D-CVT, it features a combination of steel chain and planetary gear set, the latter is used to complement the steel belt to reduce a typical CVT’s rubber feel whilst giving it a more direct feel.

It engages the planetary gears via a clutch at higher speeds

At lower speeds, the D-CVT functions like any other CVT, as it utilizes the belt at start-stop and lower speed conditions.

However, from medium to higher speeds, the clutch engages and power is routed to the planetary gear set, creating a simulated torque converter automatic sensation.

The benefits of the D-CVT are two-fold: first the D-CVT transmission has less rubber band effect than other CVT transmissions, while improving fuel consumption along the way.

In the case of the Ativa, Perodua has claimed that its SUV offers a fuel consumption of 5.29-litre/100 km.

When will the CVT-equipped Myvi launch?

As a refresher, Perodua is capable of launching one facelift model and one brand-new (Full model change, FMC) model in a year’s time.

The Perodua Ativa was launched earlier this year, possibly leaving room for the CVT-equipped Myvi to be launched later this year.
