Since the launch of new Perodua family Myvi SE 1.5L and Myvi Extreme 1.5L last few months, it continued to have a very stimulating book among the Malaysians. Myvi Extreme 1.5 was launched together with Myvi Special Edition (SE), which also sharing the same 1500litre enginethe largest ever published in the Myvi family. Of course, the tagline "Lagi Best, Lagi Power" refers to this1.5litre engine that will promised you more energetic drive, especially when overtaking and climbing up the hill.

Myvi Extreme 1.5 has a same characteristics to Myvi SE, but Myvi Extreme has more exaggerated, especially on the bodykit parts such as front and rear bumper and spoiler which reveals Myvi Extreme looks more sporty. Very easy to differentiate between SE and Extreme. Extreme got the grey lower lip in front bumper but this sexy lips was not installed at the Myvi SE.
As noted above, both Myvi Extreme and SE is powered by 1.5litre twin-cam engine DVVT given code 3SZ-VE, that is the same engine that was used in the MPV Perodua Alza. The chain driven engine puts out 102 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 136 Nm of torque from 4.400 rpm, and this power channeled to front wheel through the 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic gearbox. With this horsepower, this Myvi can run from 0-100km/h in just 9.98sec Manual transmission and 12.49sec Automatic transmission.

Let's move to the exterior, of couse the first attractive part is its very sporty front and rear bumper, spoiler, chrome garnish on the door handles, very diffrent from the previous 1.3litre. But this new Myvi still maintain with 14 inch alloy rims but in new design. The headlamp also upgraded to projector headlamp, LED combination rear taillamp, new design and relocation of fog lamp, rectractable side mirror with side turn signal, UV protected glass and tinted film on all glases.

Inside, we can see the one-tone that is all black on the desboard and interior. the steering with audio controll and leather wrapped, chrome inside door handle and leather sporty front seat. The meter also very impressive with an attractive colours combination of white, blue and red and also there are chrome rings thrown in.

Let's move to the In-Car-Audio System (ICE). This Myvi comes with the flush type audio system, the full colour DVD touch screen system build-in with navigation system, Bluetooth and USB port. The body come with carbon fiber look while the lighting also changed to red.

The safety features equipped with this small monster is Dual SRS Airbag for driver and passanger. The most important part to ensure safe driving is the ABS, EBD and BA. this Features will ensure your car will not skidding when cornering especially on the wet road.
