Proton’s CEO Datuk Ahmad Fuaad Kenali has just announced that the local carmaker will launch not one, but three new models over the next three months. That’s right, it’s going to be a busy period ahead for Proton.
If everything goes to plan, the 2016 Proton Persona will be first to arrive in August (that’s only weeks away), followed by the 2016 Proton Saga in September and lastly, the Suzuki Ertiga-based new Proton B-segment MPV model in October. And that’s on top of the new Perdana that was just introduced last month in June.
The Persona will essentially be a sedan version of the Proton Iriz, but with unique styling both front and back. The new Saga, meanwhile, looks to be a heavy facelift of the current model, with reworked exterior, interior and mechanicals. The small MPV will be a rebadged version of the Suzuki Ertiga, to slot below the Exora.
