For The engine is zippy around town and can keep up with traffic out of the city. Like every Myvi, this SXi has plenty of kit, including air-con, metallic paint and electric windows.

Against There's not a great deal of pulling power, so you have to make a lot of use of the five-speed gearbox. Engine and wind noise builds up at motorway speeds.

Perodua Myvi Hatchback

What Car? says

1 out of 5 stars

The point of a Perodua is value for money, so the cheapest model makes most sense. It's well equipped, and buying SE trim or the automatic 'box does nothing to improve it.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Perodua Myvi immediately looks attractive thanks to its looks and its price, but don't go thinking that it's all the car you'll ever need for a bargain price. There are plenty of reasonas why it's so cheap.

Firstly, and most worryingly, there's a severe shortage of safety kit included. Twin front airbags are standard, but side and curtain airbags aren't, while stability control is nothing more than a pipe dream. The nervous handling poor refinement and tacky interior also help explain the Myvi's pricetag.
