2022 Perodua Myvi facelift – latest teaser shows off lane keeping assist and dashboard with red highlights

We’re only a few days away from the launch of the Perodua Myvi facelift on November 18, so there’s still some time for the carmaker to drop more teasers. The latest was posted earlier today and shows off the hatchback’s new Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) feature as well as red highlights on the dashboard.

The first is part the Myvi’s new Perodua Smart Drive Assist (PSDA) suite of safety and driver assist systems that also includes ASA 3.0, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Control and Blind Spot Monitor. These complement the ASA 3.0 systems such as Pre-collision Warning (PCW), Pre-collision Braking (PCB or AEB), Front Departure Alert (FDA) and Pedal Misoperation Control (PMC).

The PSDA umbrella also includes Parking Assist (front/rear sensors, reverse camera, rear cross traffic alert) and Headlamp Assist (Auto High Beam or Adaptive High Beam, depending on variant). With a price range of between RM45,700 and RM58,800 OTR without insurance, the availability of such systems is certainly impressive, although we’ll have to wait until launch day to see which variant gets what.

Meanwhile, the red accents on the dashboard are something we’ve seen in a previous teaser, with the hue being applied on the air vent surrounds, instrument panel and even the seats (on the top AV variant). Other changes include a new steering wheel from the Ativa with controls for the active safety and driver assist systems, an upgraded infotainment unit and a dashcam next to the housing for the PSDA’s stereo cameras.

As for exterior updates, the Myvi’s face sports reshaped LED headlamps and vertical LED daytime running light strips on its reprofiled bumper. The rear bumper also gains vertical vents to mimic the front look, while the taillights appear to be unchanged from before. Check out Theo’s “studio pics” for some idea of what the final product might look like.

Under the bonnet, the Myvi is expected to retain its four-cylinder engines with Dual VVT-i, including a 1.3 litre unit making 95 PS (94 hp)/121 Nm as well as 1.5 litre unit with 103 PS (102 hp)/137 Nm. A switch from the current four-speed automatic to a CVT is also expected, although this hasn’t been officially stated for now. What is confirmed is that variants – 1.5 AV, 1.5 H, 1.5 X as well as two 1.3 G options – will be automatic only (P2 has discontinued the unpopular base 1.3L manual version).
