More on the Proton PCC (Proton Compact Car, previously P2-30A GSC and soon the Proton Iriz) – there will be eight different variants and seven colour options to choose from. The eight is split equally between the two engines available (1.3 or 1.6 VVT), each with a choice of either a five-speed manual or CVT transmission.

There will be three trim lines – Standard, Executive and Premium. The Standard is limited to the 1.3 litre motor only, while Premium can only be had with the larger engine. To spell it out, the eight variants are as follows:

  • 1.3 Standard MT and 1.3 Standard CVT
  • 1.3 Executive MT and 1.3 Executive CVT
  • 1.6 Executive MT and 1.6 Executive CVT
  • 1.6 Premium MT and 1.6 Premium CVT

As for the seven colours, they are Citrus Green, Silver Moon Dust (think Merc’s Mountain Grey), Tranquility Black, Fire Red, Genetic Silver, Atlantic Blue and Proton White. The first two are brand new and exclusive to the B-segment hatch, and all but the last white option are metallic. So no, no yellow Proton PCC, but seven options is quite a healthy choice, we think.
