Cameron Highlands is where the party’s at, it seems. After a debadged Daihatsu Ayla (widely expected to be a test mule for Perodua’s upcoming ‘new model’/Axia) was spotted at the hill station earlier this month, it’s now the Proton Global Small Car‘s turn to undergo tests there.

Admittedly, few locations are better – cool air, sweeping B-roads, big elevational changes and many opportunities for single-lane overtaking. Plus, who could resist a lovely spot of strawberries and tea afterwards?

Only last week we spotted a few GSCs in Kota Bharu, accompanied by a Volkswagen Polo TSI, Perodua Myvi, Honda Brio hatch and Ford Fiesta, possibly for benchmarking purposes.


We wondered at the time if the Polo was part of the tests, as it was the only one registered. Well, reader Chembo Addare, who very kindly shared these spyshots with us on Facebook, caught that very Polo here following a trade-plated Myvi. So that’s that, then.

We’ve showed you lots of spyshots (plus a spy video) of the GSC since November last year, both at home and abroad. We’ve seen the dashboard, touch-screen and head unit, as well as its tail lamps. We also know that LED DRLs and ESC will be available, and that a CVT is very likely.
