PLATFORM FOR FUTURE
A humble people mover is the key to the future at Proton.
The seven-seat Exora has just been unveiled in Malaysia and will come to Australia at under $25,000, but it’s the platform of the family wagon that provides the real breakthrough.
It will be spun in a number of directions, including an all-new Persona family car.
Talk from Malaysia also points to the platform being used in a potential successor to the Jumbuck ute – which has been a rare success for Proton in Australia – as well as the company’s first station wagon.
Proton Australia chief John Startari said the Exora was being evaluated in specifications and pricing.
The biggest shortcoming is the baby 1.6-litre Campro engine that restricts almost everything made by the Malaysian company.
