Perodua Myvi SE / Myvi Extreme launching soon

Do you fancy a faster Myvi? The 1.3 variant is a tough machine to be handled at 170km/h (if it somehow reach this speed), so Perodua will introduced a more powerful version powered by mightier 1.5 litre engine.

Packed with nothing-high-performance-whatsoever engine currently powering the sub-MPV Alza, the 104 bhp lump will minimally make Myvi mildly speedier. The massive blacked-out front splitter (whole color scheme looks suspiciously Renault Megane RS inspired) hopefully was aerodynamically tuned to produce some meaningful downforce. Behind the similarly-sized alloy, hopefully housed at least lowered kit (unlikely by looking at the car photos).

Industry spy bird was caught saying the car will be launched on September 16th. Words are that there is a "normal" SE without the sporty bodykit and an "Extreme" version with, well, sporty bodykit. Let's wait if Malaysia has produce a pocket-rocket hot hatch which is affordable to the masses.
