The Perodua Myvi was proclaimed the winner in the Entry-Level Segment at the 2018 Malaysia Car of the Year Awards ceremony, held at the Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday night.
Organised by the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI), the event was attended by Prime Minister YAB Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, YABhg Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali, Minister of International Trade and Industry YB Datuk Ignatius Darell Leiking and MAI CEO Dato’ Madani Sahari.
The popularity of the Myvi was evident at the just-concluded 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS18), where the sporty Myvi GT styling exercise drew an abundance of public attention.
Last year’s iteration of the awards saw the Perodua Bezza and Perodua Myvi win in the Below-RM50,000 and RM50,001-RM60,000 categories respectively, while Dato’ Dr Zahari Husin was crowned Automotive Man of the Year.
At the 2016 Malaysia Car of the Year Awards, the then-new Perodua Bezza won in the Entry-Level, People’s Choice and Most Significant Design Achievement categories.
