Perodua Myvi Cross brochure leaked, most likely an April Fool’s joke

A couple of months ago, we reported that Perodua is working on a crossover version of the Myvi, possibly called the Myvi Style.

More recently, our friends over at Funtasticko posted photos of what could be the Perodua Myvi Style, albeit with a twist.

Never mind the fact that the brochure depicts the Indonesian-market Daihatsu Sirion Cross (the Perodua Myvi is sold in Indonesia as the Daihatsu Sirion), we noticed some errors that indicates that the brochure is most likely a fake.

Note that Daihatsu's tagline is different

For starters, we noticed that the Daihatsu tagline used in the brochure differs from the one from Daihatsu’s own website – on the brochure it says Sahabat Daihatsu, but the website says Daihatsu Sahabatku.

Hmm, no wonder the wheels look so familiar

Then there’s the wheels of the alleged Myvi Cross – those wheels are lifted directly off the Japanese-market Toyota Raize.

Note the changes

Furthermore, the interior photos are riddled with errors. Not only are the new features already available on the existing Sirion/Myvi, we also noticed that the alleged new beige door trim colour is missing from the larger interior photo.

Curiously, with this being an alleged Indonesian-market car, our media friends from Indonesia have yet to publish anything about it, which leads us to believe that this could be an elaborate April Fool’s joke.
