1.5 AV (2023)
Bought new, Owned for 2 Years
Fuel Economy: 16.0 km/litre (6.3 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 2,500 km/month
    Got it since 2023 April 1.5 AV

    1- Fuel safe improved a lot compare to before facelift. Long distance drive i can get around 500km MAX(Non stop driving). City + Highway drive around 420-450km per tank.

    2- Better sound quality while on Radio or Bluetooth.

    3- Added safety feature which is very useful such as BSM,RTCA,ADAS.

    4- Autoheadlamp is good especially for people like me who travel a lot.
    Because of my always long distance driving and my height is 180cm, i have a lot of complains coming from Myvi Gen1.

    1- Driver seats is BAD. Very uncomfortable compare to my Gen1 Myvi. Leg room too small and short causing a lot of discomfort such as left leg knocking the center console.
    Once i adjust seat to comfort my leg room, the steering is TOO FAR. Due this stupid design, i got bad hunch back.
    I always adjust my seats almost everyday.
    (Btw, i asked some owner who is around 170cm, all have the same problem)

    2- The seat size and sponge is terrible. Too soft. While i long distance drive and the lumbar of the seats bend backwards making my waist pain(changed to semi bucket seats). Your 40:60 design is just unnecessary and cause too too many discomfort for front passanger and driver.
    Rear seats using Styrofoam as support and little thin sponge. 60k price car seats giving cheap stuff. WOW!

    3- Charcoal canister vibrates terribly when my RPM is low. Slit some card board behind it to stop the noise.

    4- ACC is just useless. Once the ADAS camera detected car who come infront of me, the engine braking is very sudden and hard(luckily it happens when rear car was far away or else definitely getting RAM from behind)
    Btw, the lane keeping while using ACC is just so bad, the car just bounce left right left tight when it detect the car touched the lane while line. TERRIBLE.

    5- No android auto like Ativa or Alza. Come on la, cable connects Android auto is not too much to ask on 2023.

    6- When the car is at low speed and RPM low nearing 1000, the car jerks like learning how to drive MT car.

    7- Door cup holder is tilted front. I only can put small bottles and not drinking cup(all 4 doors)
To Improve
1- Improve seats design to more ergonomic especially steering distance and room leg.
2- Improve car seat comfort(better sponge and NO MORE STYROFOAM)
3- Improve ACC user experience. No more sudden brake and ding dong left right when car reach the lane white lane
4- No more jerking.
5- Give us shifting gear options like Ativa and Alza.
6- No more stupid braindless red interior. Just too ugly and stupid.
7- No more tilted cup holder. Please add cup holder at the dashboard like Ativa.
No, I would not recommend this car

1.5 X (2022)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 14.0 km/litre (7.1 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 1,500 km/month
    1. Active safety features that no other cars sub 60k have. Like autobrake when camera detect brake pressure is not enough, beep sound when camera detect front vehicle moving far when we stop at trafic light, auto headlamp at dark. Alot!!
    2. Low engine rpm(1k) when crawling at town 30-60kmh, 2k rpm at highway 100-120kmh better fuel efficiency if you can maintain a speed without stop/brake. 100% town 14km/l. Highway (100-120kmh) 18km/l.
    3. Full size spare tyre.
    4. Handling is firm compare to previous model.
    5. 2 interior light, front and map light.
    6. Spacious rear seat.
    7. Auto folding mirrors. Can set auto/manual.
    8. I like the new cranberry red colour, so striking.
    9. Classic meter cluster and aircond button.
    10. Spacious boot.



    ?
    1. NVH on highway is very good, compare previous model 110kmh is very noisy especially when put door visor.
    2. Rattling sound, need to layer rubber mat to remove noise in cup holder.
    3. Very thin paint, immediately go to car coating, if you have money better go for body wrap (minimum front and roof)
    4. White headlamp not so good when rainy, i was thinking to swap with preFL model bumper just to have yellow spotlight.
    5. No option to switch off headlamp.
    High > low > auto
    6. Vibrating driver side headlamp. Noticable.
    7. Handling quite heavy, it should set heavy on high speed. Not low speed too.
    10. No armrest.
    11. 15% smaller tank compare to previous model.
    12. No telescopic steering wheel adjustment. Need to find your own body posture. Hard for tall person.
    13. Steering grip too small. Not suitable for big size hand.


    ?
To Improve
Please add
1. Spotlight
2. Auto rain swipe. Camera cannot detect / false detect if windscreen full of water. ?

1.5 AV (2021)
Bought new, Owned for 2 Years
Fuel Economy: 14.0 km/litre (7.1 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 1,100 km/month
    1. Active safety features that no other cars sub 60k have.
    2. Low engine rpm(2k) at 110kmh contribute to lower engine noise and better fuel efficiency at highway speed.
    3. Quick 0-100 time.
    4. Spacious rear legroom
    5. Full size spare tyre
    6. Adequate interior light.
    7. Reclinable rear seat.
    8. Auto folding mirrors.
    9. I like the new cranberry red colour, so striking.
    10. Meter cluster is nice to look at. In my opinion, analog meter with small multi function display screen is better and classier compared to fully digital cluster like in the Ativa, Alza & Axia.
    1. Subpar NVH especially the road noise, sometimes it's a bit unbearable especially when driving in the rain. When I hit puddles, sounded like my rear door is open.
    2. Rattling sound everywhere, from the engine bay, dashboard area, rear door & boot area.
    3. Very soft paint, can easily be scratched by finger nail.
    4. Headlamp not so bright, i find myself adjusting the headlamp level very frequently to see the road better at night.
    5. No option to switch off headlamp.
    6. Vibrating driver side headlamp. Already referred to SC and they say it's normal.
    7.Very dated interior compared to it's cheaper competitor.
    8. Weird interior colour combination. And the seats are too red for my liking.
    9. Handling is ok but lacking in steering feedback.
    10. Rusty drive shaft, haven't go to SC yet.
    11. Cupholders that are not really suitable for cups. Rear centre cupholders are too shallow and small, front doors cupholders are slanted, drinks will spill easily.
    12. No armrest. Long drive will be a bit tiring.
    13. Adaptive Cruise Control is too sensitive, accelerates & brakes abruptly when infront car moves in or out of the lane.
    14. Fuel consumption for city driving is not that good compared to the previous 4at model.
    15. No telescopic steering wheel adjustment, hard to adjust good driving position.
    16. Leaking oil filter after 10k service.
To Improve
All of the cons that I mentioned above. I'm pretty most of the cons will be ironed out with the next gen DNGA Myvi.

1.5 H (2021)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 18.0 km/litre (5.6 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 150 km/month
    - Impossibly spacious for a small B-segment hatchback only comparable to Honda Jazz. Not sure if anything else comes close.
    - Extremely fuel efficient. 15kml in the city, 18.5kml (personal record) combined.
    - Cheap and powerful for a daily commuter.
    - Super easy to drive. No gypsy magics.
    - Sufficiently comfortable despite reviews saying the thigh support is nonexistent. The seats are short but no issue there.
    - Toyota reliability. Being at peace is a blessing.
    - Rear legroom so roomy, you can sell it to property developer.
    - RATTLINGS!
    - The suspension makes the car feel very cheap whenever it hits potholes.
    - Tire noise. Get a different rubber when you can.
    - You'll get the "Myvi King!" a lot.
    - Eco mode feels lazy when the driver behind you are the kind that honks 0.2 seconds after the light turns green.
    - Rubber-band effect at low speed. It's still a CVT.
To Improve
- Wish the suspension could be better.
- Sound insulation could be better. Or just let us install soundproofing without invalidating our warranty.
- Update the smartlink app.
- Let users view the map while driving. The current system turns off the infotainment screen while mirroring when it detects the car is moving.
- Fix the rattles. Those are from the cables inside the plastic panel so fixes should be simple.

1.3 G without PSDA (2022)
Bought new, Owned for 2 Years
Fuel Economy: 17.0 km/litre (5.9 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 2,500 km/month
    The gear box is the best thing to have with this car. Yes, it is MANUAL. When you come to MANUAL, all the joy will come whenever you drive it, feel it.
    Mileage could be better if you do not have golden right leg as my own best record is approximately 550-600km per full tank.
    Sitting position at much lower height compare to previous MYVI lagi best version, it give me confidents when driving around.
    Can be daily car nor a family car depending on personal driving habit with default setting of the car.
    Being a MANUAL car, my friends think stepping the clutch to the bottom end (default clutch distance) to be too long as he hardly can really get the car move smoothly compare to other manual car. My friends do recommend to adjust it to shorter distance which I doesn't think so.
    Suspension tend to be the soft side. When it come to handling on those curvy road, the car cannot get hold on it.
    Perodua incline/foldable/moveable rear seat from MYVI lagi best absent in this generation is a big NO NO for me. The rear trunk and seat cannot be flat.
    Center console will get hot up when you drive for a long period.
To Improve
Clutch might need to be adjust to each individual preference.
Suspension to be increase the boldness compare to the current one.
Increase strength of car body chassis to reduce body roll.
Previous MYVI lagi best rear seat to be included.
Center armrest to be introduce.
