The in-car entertainment system features Bluetooth compatibility for hands-free usage with a Bluetooth phone. The ICE system is also complete with Apple iPod integration. And check this out, for you to fully utilise it’s Apple iPod integration each car will come with a bundled Apple iPod Nano!

The cars will also feature mild performance and handling upgrades such as R3 Performance Slotted Brake Discs. The Proton Waja R3 special edition might also feature Xenon headlamps as standard, a first for a national production vehicle, though this is not something confirmed.
