I found that many of Proton Sales Agent starts to sell the new Proton Saga 1.6 Litre version of Campro IAFM engine instead of current market version of 1300cc or 1.3litre of campro iafm under the hood of proton Saga Baru or New Saga BLM. This version of Saga BLM is said to be the limited edition of new saga 1.6 litre campro iafm engine and only available in red colour.
PROTON NEW SAGA BLM 1.6 LITRE CAMPRO IAFM – LIMITED EDITION SAGA BARU VERSI 1600CC
The Limited New Saga includes power steering, power window, CD player, alarm/reverse sensor, front disc brake, 5year warranty, central lock and other standard accessories with price of New Saga BLM “Limited Edition” at only RM39,000 for manual transmission and solid red colour only.
Looking at the New Saga BLM 1.6 litre above, the price of RM39000 is for the one without sport rims. the price range is between RM39000 to RM43000.
Current interest rate for Proton Saga BLM offered is from 3.3% and loan up to 10 years. The down payment to buy the new saga or saga baru is RM3900 and the monthly payment (bayaran bulanan) is around RM434 per month. You can also trade in your old car under Proton Exchange programme and get discount coupon RM5000 to buy this Saga BLM 1.6 “limited edition”.
This Limited Saga Baru with 1600cc campro iafm engine is originally produced for Taxis but the different is it is not fitted with NGV and not painted with taxi design finishing. This New Saga 1.6 for sure can give you better engine response and pickup due to its bigger capacity but for the fuel efficiency, off course slightly higher.
Anyway, anyone have bought this limited saga BLM? Kindly share your saga review here. What about others opinion about this saga 1.6 litre campro iafm engine? Is it a good step to officially launch the 1.6 litre version of Saga BLM or not?
