Tree falls on Myvi at a KL junction

Most Malaysians can agree on Myvi’s status as the King of the Road, as the locally-made car has been spotted multiple times in unimaginable situations. Take for example, when a Myvi car was involved in a 6-vehicle accident and its driver miraculously left the wreckage with minor injuries.

The tales of Myvi continues this new year, as the ubiquitous vehicle was part of an unfortunate accident that saw a huge roadside tree crashing suddenly upon it in Kuala Lumpur. Despite the out-of-the-blue hit, all passengers in the car managed to escape uninjured.

At the same time, people also complemented the Myvi for its sturdiness that played a major role in protecting the passengers from potential injuries.
