Pero­dua sur­prises the crowd with X Con­cept and Myvi GT

Top Gear (Malaysia) - - Pace Notes -

Pero­dua helped im­bue the re­cently con­cluded Kuala Lumpur In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show (KLIMS18) with an in­ter­na­tional show qual­ity when it took the cov­ers off the X Con­cept. The fu­tur­is­tic hatch­back head­lined the brand’s ‘Il­lu­mi­na­tion’ themed ex­hibit, bring­ing dar­ing styling cues like Y-shaped head­lights and il­lu­mi­nated front grille to the Pero­dua floor.

“In keep­ing with KLIMS18’s Beyond Mo­bil­ity theme, the Pero­dua X-Con­cept is much more than just a ve­hi­cle in the ac­cepted sense. It is the man­i­fes­ta­tion of Pero­dua’s vi­sion of the fu­ture, a vi­sion where cars are life­style state­ments first, means of trans­port sec­ond, and bristling with con­nected tech­nol­ogy,” said Datuk Ami­nar Rashid, pres­i­dent and CEO of Pero­dua.

While the X Con­cept cer­tainly was a sight to be­hold, vis­i­tors were equally at­tracted to the Myvi GT, which also made its pub­lic de­but at KLIMS18. Dressed in sporty items such as 17-inch wheels, Brembo brakes with drilled discs, Al­can­tara bucket seats and a flat-bot­tomed steer­ing wheel, the Myvi GT is essen­tially a de­sign and

en­gi­neer­ing con­cept based on a car Malaysians can read­ily pur­chase from all Pero­dua show­rooms na­tion­wide. It will def­i­nitely in­spire some own­ers to mod­ify their cars in a sim­i­lar fash­ion.
