The P3-21A is said to be Proton’s global car, Proton listened to critics and comments from around the world and correcting them in the P3-21A. Thus, Proton had made a lot of improvement for the P3-21A in terms of safety. First of all, the P3-21A will be able to achieve 5-star EuroNCAP rating, thanks to the fitting of 2 front airbags and first time in Proton, side airbags (should have curtain airbags too) as standard.
Other than that, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) will be introduced in the P3-21A, another first in Proton! Lotus Ride & Handling also contribute to the safety of the car, and Proton claimed that the P3-21A is the best handling car in its segment! This is made possible by fitting multi-link rear suspension, which is not found in its close competitors, into P3-21A that promotes good ride & handling.
Engine wise, same 1.6litre powerplant from Exora CFE which produces 140bhp and 205Nm of torque, mated with a 7-speed CVT gearbox! Compared with a Honda Civic 1.8l, the P3-21A has similar amount of horsepower but a whooping 31Nm more amount of torque! Manual transmission will be getting the less powerful IAFM powerplant but with 6-speed! Equipments like push-start button, light and rain sensor, paddle shift, built-in GPS (no more attaching GPS on the windscreen!) and front daytime running LED lights are installed in the P3-21A.
