Perodua Myvi Gets Blue And Advanced Safety Assist 2.0
As Blue As The Sky Today!
Malaysia’s best selling automotive name plate is the Myvi and there are many reasons why it is selling so well and why it continues to be popular with Malaysians. But selling well and having a strong resale value is not enough for its manufacturer Perodua.
They management and engineers want to keep improving on their best seller and provide Malaysians with more choice and so here comes a new variant of the Myvi which was awarded ‘Vehicle Of The Year 2018’ by www.dsf.my and Allianz two years ago. This ‘BLUE’ version arrives in all Perodua showrooms from this morning priced from a sensible RM41,292 and comes with added safety.
This Myvi BLUE is now available for booking at all Perodua showrooms nationwide.
PRESS RELEASE: The range-topping 1.5 AV was previously the only variant with the Advanced Safety Assist (ASA*) suite of driver assistance safety systems. Now, the more advanced version, ASA 2.0, is standard on variants 1.5 AV and 1.5 H, and optional on the 1.3 X.
“With the inclusion of ASA 2.0, the Perodua Myvi takes advanced safety to a whole new level at this price point, and it’s now more widely available within the line-up,” said Perodua President and Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.
“The latest Myvi carries on the Perodua tradition of bringing advanced safety technology to the people by making it affordable and accessible to all,” he added.
Additionally, the Myvi is now available in Electric Blue (for all variants). Other available colours are Ivory White, Glittering Silver, Lava Red and Granite Grey (now available on all variants except 1.3 G).
ASA debuted on the third-generation Perodua Myvi in 2017, comprising Pre-Collision Warning (up to 30 km/h), Pre-Collision Braking (up to 30 km/h), Front Departure Alert and Pedal Misoperation Control, all of which work together to mitigate collisions.
ASA 2.0 first appeared on the Aruz in 2019, adding Pedestrian Detection (up to 50 km/h) to the suite and upping the operational speeds of Pre-Collision Warning and Pre-Collision Braking to 100 km/h and 80 km/h respectively.
ASA 2.0 then found its way to the 2019 Axia and 2020 Bezza before arriving now at the Myvi, which continues to be offered with a five-year/150,000 km warranty (whichever comes first).
“Check out the updated Perodua Myvi now at any of our sales outlets nationwide – our authorised sales advisors will be only too happy to assist you and answer your queries on the latest version of Malaysia’s best-selling car!” Dato’ Zainal said.
*ASA is a driver assistance system that helps to reduce the risk of collisions and is by no means a substitute for safe driving. Always be alert and cautious behind the wheel.
