A “Proton Suprima S” decal on a preve hatchback p3-22a shows the actual new name for the new proton car.
If it is true, we are quite not agree with this. Why proton prefer a new name instead a “Preve Hatchback” or Preve HB or sport version for thr same model with shorter boot? Unless it is a completely different model.
The Preve hatchback will share 1.6 CFE soft turbo engine which has around 6.6l/100km fuel consumption while Preve IAFM CVT 1.6 has better FC at around 5.8l/100km which is around 17.24 km/litre at constant speed cruising due to the 6 speed CVT transmission that gives high speed at lower RPM and NA (Naturally Aspirated) standard IAFM 1.6 litre engine.
Not sure if its coming with the manual 5 speed transmission which gives a bit higher FC than CVT at 6.2l/100km.
The maximum top speed of Preve is 190km/h for Preve CFE turbo, 180km/h for 1.6 IAFM+ manual and 170km/h for 1.6 CVT. The turbocharged CFE engine producing 138 HP and 205Nm torque which is more than 2.0 litre engine torque output
