Somebody once told me that the Viva is a miniature Avanza. Looks like it's true.
I had the chance to snap this photo of the two cars parked side-by-side at the Bukit Mertajam Specialist Hospital. And why shouldn't they look the same? Toyota holds some interests in Perodua, Malaysia's second national car manufacturer and if Toyota allows Perodua to copy the design, why not? Anyway, Perodua has the sole rights to assemble Toyota's Avanza here in Malaysia and Perodua's MyVi uses the same 1.3-litre engine as the 1.3-litre Avanza. So be it!
