Rendering based on the Toyota Passo.
Theophilus Chin has created a rendering of the next generation Perodua Myvi, which is expected to be based on the Toyota Passo hatchback. It could launch in Malaysia next year; almost six years after the current Myvi was launched.
As seen in the rendering, it combines the design cues of the Toyota Passo with the front-end of the Perodua Bezza sedan. The styling in the rendering looks slightly more sedate and mature than the current Myvi, which underwent a minor facelift this year.
It could also source the feature list from the Bezza sedan, where the top-end Advance trim gets keyless entry, push button start, touchscreen infotainment system, an automatic engine start/stop system and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) on range-topping variants.
Engines for the next gen Perodua Myvi could be sourced from the Toyota NR family, which includes the 1NR-VE 1.3 litre DOHC engine with Dual VVT-i producing 97 hp/121 Nm and 2NR-VE 1.5 litre engine with 104 PS/139 Nm. A 5-speed manual will be standard, while a 4-speed E-AT may be optional.
