The new car,based on the Malaysian Saga sedan, will have an all new name for the Australian market and will join low cost variants across all Proton passenger car models with new specifications and ultra competitive pricing, as the company continues to restructure its Australian operation.
Proton’s value leading sedan will come to market with a sub AU$13,000 price tag and will spearhead a range boasting extreme value for money.
It will be launched initially with Proton’s 1.6 litre Campro engine and five speed manual as standard with an automatic and smaller engine option to be available from february 2010.
Proton will add to its Satria Neo, Gen2 and Persona models with lower cost entry level models featuring new specifications in an effort to attract more buyers to the company’s value for money proposition.
The new lower cost Proton models will be introduced during November 2009 and will position as an economy leader in the new car market which, along with its focus on rebuilding and refreshing its dealer network, will equip it for strong growth in 2010.
