John Oxley of Wheels24, a South African car portal was in Malaysia recently for a visit to the Proton Tanjung Malim factory and to test drive the Proton Gen2 which will debut in South Africa soon.
He recounted his experience on tour in the Tanjung Malim factory and looks like he was impressed with the advanced facilities available there. I would like to tour that place one day too.
Cars that he test drove included the Gen2, Savvy and a Lotus. He seemed to like the exterior look of the Gen2 alot… using words like stunning in his article. The interior was good to him too, and he also noted he had no trouble sitting comfortably in the back.
His test drive experience with the Savvy was equally good.
There’s an error in his article though. Seems that he’s been led to believe the Arena was based on the Waja.
A final quote from him:
The cars are certainly well made, well designed, and offer excellent performance and economy in their class. I look forward to driving them in South Africa.
