Looks-wise, the Myvi 1.5 has a smarter front grille design and reprofiled bumpers that give a more distinctive appearance. Like previous SE versions, the emphasis is on sportiness and there are pronounced side skirts with styling elements on the rear bumper that should please the boy-racer types.
For those who want even more aggressive looks, there is an additional version called the Myvi Extreme which has a front airdam extension attached (you could also buy this separately and fix it to the SE). Black is used to accent certain elements giving a bolder, more aggressive appearance.
The SE has six colour choices and the Extreme has three, with Majestic Yellow being a new shade. The aggressiveness of the Extreme is more apparent with the bright colours (Majestic Yellow and Ivory White) but a bit lost with the dark shade of Ebony Black though black does still look bold.
In the cabin, the most obvious difference from the Myvi 1.3 is that the all-black colour theme instead of the 2-tone theme on the dashboard. This is in keeping with the sportier image and metallic accents on various panels provide a touch of stylishness. Where the dashboard had a more horizontal emphasis visually, in the Myvi 1.5, this is not the case and the central area is highlighted with metallic finish.
