Proton Persona Elegance facelift – full details!

dsc_0580

We just got back from the launch of the facelifted Proton Persona, which is officially called the Proton Persona Elegance. Available in three trim levels – Base Line, Medium Line and High Line – the Persona Elegance is powered by the familiar 1.6-litre Campro IAFM engine with 110 bhp at 6,500 rpm and 148 Nm of torque from 4000 rpm. Buyers can choose between a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual, but the High Line model only comes with the auto ‘box.

Although output remains, the Campro IAFM in the Persona Elegance comes with a new 32 bit ECU from Continental, which also supplied the previous 16 bit version. According to a Proton source, the new 32 bit ECU has more capabilities compared to the older 16 bit version – capable of more inputs, you can configure more parameters, and it can also interconnect with more systems such as “talking” to a Body Control Module such as the one in the Exora.

dsc_0594

It is more of a future-proofing and cost-effectiveness move. Torque and power output remains the same as before. Firstly, Siemens VDO have been moving their global ECU manufacturing to 32 bit being the minimum, so it is not feasible for Proton to continue ordering 16 bit ECUs when the 32 bit version can be had at a far more competitive price. This move is also in preparation for the new Project Phoenix engine that we will soon see in Protons, which will require the capabilities of the new ECU.

UPDATE: Since we first published this article we’ve received more information on the new Persona Elegance. The changes go beyond just an aesthetic make-over. We already know there’s a new bodykit, front grille, bumpers and new LED tail lamps. But beyond that, here’s what’s different:

  • The seat backrest angle has been changed to offer better comfort.
  • Extra soundproofing material has been added to pillars to improve interior NVH.
  • Despite power output and torque being the same, a source has indicated that the engine should feel livelier and more responsive. We’ll try to get an initial impression from the showrooms over this weekend.

The original story continues below…

There are a couple of changes to the exterior. As all of you already know from our previous reveals, the Persona Elegance comes with a new rear lamp cluster, now with LED brake lights. The nine LEDs are arranged in two rows – four up and five down. All trims except for the Base Line come with a bodykit, slim rear spoiler and foglamps, although the turning lamps on the side mirrors (illuminates in a cool light bar form) and chrome door handles are standard across the board.

dsc_0600

Up front, the facelifted Persona uses the same nose as the Gen 2 CPS along with its “black out” headlamp housing, but with a different grille design. The Proton logo and its “wings” is pushed up to the top of the grille while the Gen 2 CPS has a central emblem. The 15-inch rim design is also new, although the 195/60 size of the tyres are unchanged. As before, the Base Line makes do with steel rims and hubcaps.

Inside, the most apparent change is the replacement of the previous custom designed audio head unit for a conventional single-DIN unit, once again by Blaupunkt. The USB compatible unit should be easier to operate than before with minimal and large buttons, and all trims but the Base Line get steering wheel controls. The meter cluster graphics are also new, now with white numbering and red needles plus a red inner ring, much more “premium looking” than the plain orange dials used before. Proton also says that the angle of rear seat has been changed for improved comfort.

dsc_0566

Medium and High Line cars get a GPS navigation set stuck on the windscreen, driver’s seat height adjuster and electric side mirrors. Only the High Line gets leather seats and trim (Base and Medium Line sports a new fabric material), cruise control and remote release for the trunk.

Safety kit wise, the High Line comes with ABS and EBD, two airbags and two pre-tensioner seatblets. Out of this, the Medium Line only gets a driver’s airbag and pre-tensioner seatbelt, while the Base Line gets none of the above.

Here is the price list for the Persona Elegance:

Base Line (M) RM46,499
Base Line (A) RM49,499
Medium Line (M) RM52,999
Medium Line (A) RM55,999
High Line (A) RM59,499

Proton’s latest is available in two new colours – Chiffon Green and Bronze Garnet – in addition to silver and black. Brilliant Red is a colour exclusive to the High Line. Now in showrooms and ready for booking, the Persona Elegance comes with a 2-year/50,000 km manufacturer’s warranty plus a 3-year/125,000 km extended warranty programme – that’s a total of 5 years.

Pictures from the launch this morning, studio images, a video and a full scan of the brochure showing the equipment list of all variants are after the jump.

      Ya agree wif u… lampu dpan shud change a bit la. too small from far. Rupa macam org yg mata nya tenggelam lbh dkat ke hidung. lol hehe… Shud make it longer to the inside, and longer to fender side. Anyway y not proton using 4G92 MIIVEC in persona elegance??? Looks more elegance with powerfull engine inside hood. Kalau tak pun, 4G92 DOHC can do juga. Proton have a deal with mitsubishi to built Inspira with lancer 4B11 MIVEC engine, y not did the same on persona elegance? Plus persona still share same chasis with mitsubishi rite? engine mount also same. Rite people?

      syabas proton persona elegance begitu menawan.lampu belakang cantik.depan memuaskan,dalaman ok.cuma ada 2 perkara lagi yang perlu diubah untuk kepuasan mata pengguna.1) Design pada stering 2) Design pada lampu depan.Pastikan kedua-dua perkara tersebut nampak cantik.desig lampu skg mcm Gen2 kurang menarik. Perlu diingatkan ..3 perkara penting bagi menarik pelanggan untuk membeli proton.1) Daya tarikan pertama untuk menarik minat pembeli ialah Design atau pun rekabentuk kenderaan itu..tidak terlalu ditokok tambah lebih2, cukup dgn design yg ringkas dan kemas tetapi menarik.Itu sebagai daya penarik yg pertama. 2) Keluasan dan kekemasan dalaman kenderaan dan kekukuhan peralatan memberi kepuasan.3) Kuasa enjin yang senyap, berkuasa dan hebat.Dan pastikan semua elemen dan bahan buatan utk kenderaan adalah berkualiti.Pernah terjadi proton baru keluar tiba2 terhenti ditengah lebuhraya dan ada yang baru 1 jam keluar dari pusat pembelian on the way nak bawa balik tiba2 ada bunyi pada radiator. pastu terus masuk workshop tak sampai rumah pun.rupa2 nya skru pada radiator longgar dan terpaksa alas washer atau getah pada skru.walau bagaimana pun syabas pada proton kerana membuat perubahan.Jadikan segala rungutan pengguna sbg semangat utk mencari dan melakukan perubahan yg lebih baik.Cuba fahami selera pengguna rekabentuk,keluasan dan kehebatan menjadi kepuasan mereka.

        vendor pun perlu dipantau juga.. kalau supply barang yang bermasalah, terminate jer.. lantik vendor baru yang punya rekod cemerlang.Lantik quality inspection yang betul2 bebas tanpa campur tangan proton. kalau TUV certified pastikan check betul2. jgn jd mcm savvy. TUV certified hanya tampal sticker jer.. banyak problem lo…

          I also agree with Gboy and i better choose persona than vios especially when comes to its handling which i found much more better and confident compared to vios (drive and test already). Some more, the price for persona is much more realistic and reasonable with its elegance quality nowadays compared to wasting 50% of your money to pay the tax for other foreign cars (unless u dont care about the value of your money or u are a very rich person and wasting money is your hobby). Get real dude, Proton nowadays is gradually improving their cars’ design to meet customer expectations and i dare to say that Persona (value for money exclude unnecessary tax) is one of the best car they ever make in view of the handling compared to toyota vios. Just do test driving both cars and feel the difference.. peace…

        Every 2 years in 5 years tu memang akan tukar facelift je. tapi name saje je xde tambah or kurang. Since trend ni tradition klo x silap aku, so orang dh bese. lagipon honda buatan luar.

        As proton, of course we malaysian expect better than proton had delivered to us coz we proud of it. Price vs reliability/performance agak teruk. Sampai bile nak harapkan kerajaan imposed tax gile2 kat foreign car? Proton must do something, prove us than we happily buy our own made car without any worries.

            tsk3… kompem tak penah naik/drive.. jgn mengutuk sahaja brother… other people have different economical situation, and the best buy for average family, with average incomes, is persona than any other in its class.. go test drive now.. dahsyat betul perangai, tak perlu nak mengutuk kat online, baik gi proton.. they opened their heart for critics for almost a few years now.. build their confidence so they can be better.. pernah tgk org jepun kutuk keta diorang???? diorang tak pedulik pun dunia luar drpd jepun… haish.. dahsyat rupanya orang kita ni.. roar,betul.. give feedback and suggestions to proton.. we can do it.. give faith to our own country..

            25 years not enuf for us to supply money to government? to proton? still need our money for RnD?

            U want me to make my own car? i cant becoz its not my specialties.

      i think they change the rear seat angle. I quote from paultan.org :

      * The seat backrest angle has been changed to offer better comfort.

      * Extra soundproofing material has been added to pillars to improve interior NVH.

      * Despite power output and torque being the same, a source has indicated that the engine should feel livelier and more responsive. We’ll try to get an initial impression from the showrooms over this weekend.

    No big changes, still the same feeling, and I personally don't like the steering. Previously used to drive company's GEN2 around, the feeling of the steering is abit of weird.

    But for the price, nothing much to complaint. Lets wait for waja replacement maybe? :p

    The Persona seems to have made some mature progress: the leather seats are looking good, the radio + USB are an interesting add on for all the iPhone/iPod users (and other peripherals), the LEDs, speedometer and body kit.

    However, Proton should seriously consider upping the Campro. Why was the CPS not considered for the Persona?

    All in all, a decent, cheap car that makes it an interesting entry level for young families, but I'm pretty sure we are all drooling for, finally, a major overhaul of the platform, design, quality and mechanics…

        Proton car is protected for last 20 years not only that government keep pumping tax payers money to keep it continue operating…not only it is protected with lower tax, tax payers money has been used to keep the company just to survive…just 3 years ago government pump another 75million to keep it operating….not to mention larger amount before that….when it make loss government will pump tax payer money .nothing to be proud of of a company already around for 20 years…don’t just say japanese car has been there how many years…….just compare with Korea is good enough….15 years ago Korean is poorer than us….their economy is behind us…if we are not doing anything….we may one day becoming one of the poor country even Indon overtake us…15-20 years is long enough to mature.

    I would rather buy persona even without ABS, EBD and 4 airbags than Myvi equipped with all safety features above. I've seen fatal crash involving Myvi, but heard so many terrible accidents involving persona without fatality i.e. last week news in Kota Tinggi. IMO new gen proton cars are safe thanks to strong body frame. Never trust P2 cars downgraded body frame. Poor P2.

    Paul, the car I think a lot of us are waiting for is the new waja replacement. Any news on that?

    As for for Phoenix project, is that the Turbocharged engine they working with Lotus. A similar project collaboration BMW & Puegeot-Citroen did with the EP6 engine? What the status of that project? Be really great if they can fit that on the underpowered Exora.

    Even more funny.

    The 46K baseline has NO airbags and NO pretensioning seatbelts ….WOW…what is this? 1970?

    That pretensioning seatbelt part must be a typo…..

    What is this?! Life is sure cheap for the lower income group…

    Sucks to be poor eh? Proton doesn’t even think you deserve pretensioning seatbelts.

    ————————————————————-

    stupid, dont u know that only latio 1.8 cvtc offer seatbelt with pretensioner and load limiter, how about 1.6st manual n auto n 1.6st-l? dont have one right, but no comment becoz japan car right. this is the link

    http://www.nissan.com.my/vehicles/latio/latio/tec…

    so protn offer for 1.6 m-line n h-line, so they are better offering than the nissan right, mr 4G63tDSM.

    normally, in proton, all pretensioner n load limiter for airbags equip cars. even honda jazz in malaysia doesnt mentioned about load limiter, do u think that they provide it or not?

    but for nissan, even grandlivina didnt offer pretensioner n load limiter as per latio, but people never care becoz of japang car.

    persona equip with collapsible steering column even u didnt know that right, not only persona, savvy, blm, exora, gen2 also have one.

    So Proton still not yet offer minimum 20-years warranty.

    Why should bank charge double-standard 4 pct loan interest rate if quality claimed improved for Proton? What bank also don't believe Proton is improved?

    Ok lah interest rate higher for national cars but only for ex-factory price. Hidden car taxes duties should not be covered by interest rate by banks.

    Oh ya that's why Naza Forte 1.6 starts RM70K but this Persona maximum price RM60K. Hehehe same friend cover each other huh, when Forte easily RM50k fair market price.

    KZM,

    You just made one of the most foolish and irresponsible comments ever.

    Do you know why people are asking for Airbags? Because Malaysia so happens to have one of the highest road-toll deaths per capita in the world. This is why people want airbags. It's definitely more important to have the whole security arsenal, both passive and active, instead of having a screaming 300hp engine, isn't it now?

    And your second comment about buying H-Line to get airbags is just as foolish if not more; not all Malaysians can afford to fork out an extra 10k-15k just for a couple airbags and ABS/EBD. Malaysians, generally speaking, are already handicapped enough with ENORMOUS car loans extending up to 10 years (unheard of in most countries). The last thing you'd want is having to spend an extra 20% for airbags. Having a safe and secure car is a RIGHT, not an OPTION. And Proton is still tremendously lacking and I feel, is swiping disrespect to poorer Malaysians who simply cannot afford an H-Line. Why do you think there are so many Kancils out there? Because people like them?!

    So yes, 4G63tDSM is right: Malaysians must ask for better protection in their cars and it shouldn't be an option. PERIOD.

    KZM, just think next time before pouncing on anyone.

    ii)Time to update to HID to the front lamp. don't you think?

    Do you know? Airbags + pretensioner belt and ABS + EBD these kind of low tech stuffs is very "advanced" for Proton (+Perodua)! They (Proton + Perodua) think that bodykits, LED lamp, smoked lamp, fancy grille, chrome door handle are more essential for life saving. Don't even think about Stability Control & Traction Control in Proton Car for the coming10 years.

    This is the first facelift for Persona. The special edition doenst count as a facelift. But still, the Gen2 looks are all too familiar nowadays…

    On the topic of airbags… well, it shouldnt be an option anymore. But we just have to accept that some Malaysians does does not want to pay the extra money for airbags. Not selling cars without airbags will mean less sales. Thats why they still have them.

Apparently, I am still struggling to identify the Proton's brand values? Perhaps fit for purpose? Having said that, I must say Proton has improved their chassis very much..

    satu lagi, mmg kami layak nk komen ape2 pun pasal proton sbb kami adalah rakyat Malaysia yang byk berkorban untuk selamatkan proton.. kenapa kereta brand lain boleh hasilkan kereta yang designnye bagus dan kualitinya bagus tapi proton semacam ala kadar sahaja!! Sungguh mengecewakan!

    the steering wheel is kinda boring already, why no new design? doesnt have the feel of elegance…..

    proton should design a new bumper instead of some cheap-looking bodykits… 1-piece is always better than add-on lips, skirtings etc…

    previous taillight is better, this is like 1 step backward, too conservative…

    persona and gen2 should looks young, trendy and futuristic, if they're targeting uncles/aunties, then should come out with Perdana replacement…

    Go design your own car then,then you will know how hard to design a car

    I'm not a hardcore proton's fan,but I just wanna say something to all those stupid bashers

    ussually,there is about 200 hundreds of comments for article related to proton

    and most of the comments are from this small amount of bashers

    note that there is about 3000 of persona sold per month,this small group of basher can't really compete with this huge amount of buyers who really own a proton

    KZM,

    You just made one of the most foolish and irresponsible comments ever.

    Do you know why people are asking for Airbags? Because Malaysia so happens to have one of the highest road-toll deaths per capita in the world. This is why people want airbags. It’s definitely more important to have the whole security arsenal, both passive and active, instead of having a screaming 300hp engine, isn’t it now?

    And your second comment about buying H-Line to get airbags is just as foolish if not more; not all Malaysians can afford to fork out an extra 10k-15k just for a couple airbags and ABS/EBD. Malaysians, generally speaking, are already handicapped enough with ENORMOUS car loans extending up to 10 years (unheard of in most countries). The last thing you’d want is having to spend an extra 20% for airbags. Having a safe and secure car is a RIGHT, not an OPTION. And Proton is still tremendously lacking and I feel, is swiping disrespect to poorer Malaysians who simply cannot afford an H-Line. Why do you think there are so many Kancils out there? Because people like them?!

    So yes, 4G63tDSM is right: Malaysians must ask for better protection in their cars and it shouldn’t be an option. PERIOD.

    KZM, just think next time before pouncing on anyone.

    ———————-

    Malaysians must ask for better protection in their cars? Tell me, why don't you people slag the Vios J, they don't have airbags. Think ABS enough? Yes safety equipments are important, but I can't stand the double standard of slagging Proton but not Toyota. Care to explain?

    And the most important thing we should do is a revamp of our driving curricular. It's severely lacking. Teach new driver defensive driving so that the road doesn't surprise them if anything untoward happen. That way, Malaysians can be assured of their safety no matter what car they drive!

    I find it ironic that we always ask about airbags in a Proton, safety features, bla bla bla… Yet I hardly see anyone driving with their sealtbelt on. Be it the driver, front passenger, or rear passengers. The only time I see anyone wears the seatbelt is when JPJ or police were making roadblocks.

    We wears seatbelt for the sake of avoiding getting summoned or for safety purposes?

    Zzz… how ignorant can some ppl be to have asked such obvious question… why no CPS? DUH!!! U want CPS so much, go get Gen2 or Waja la.

    Too little change? Tak reti maksud FACELIFT kah? Even so, there's quite some equipment upgrade like the 32 bit ECU, LED for rear lights n side indicator, which makes the price increase justified.

    Safety? Again, even if Malaysian are given the UNCRUSHABLE Merc S-class and still die of accident in it, it just shows which is the cause right?

    Improve driving first before even talk about safety features. Just few days ago got news about now women are becoming more aggressive driver. So, if u got into an accident, it's your fault. Too bad if the car's not safe enough to keep you alive. That's one less bad driver on the road.

    Shame they didnt use the 32 bit ECU to upgrade safety features, like giving ABS to all variants or upgrade the highline ABS+EBD to include Stability Control.

    Its also time for Proton to consider ISOfix child seat mounts.

    Underutilising the 32 bit ECU is like bragging about your latest Core Duo chip but still utilising Windows2000 OS.

    This is a facelift, not a totally new car.

    Some think that changing a design is a straight forward 1 step process i.e draw new design, fabricate and assemble… Sadly it doesnt happen that way. An all new car requires a total change in every department from vehicle design to that of the production jigs and machines. This takes time. Its not like your local fiberglass bodikit shop where they take a week to do ONE front bumper makeover. You cant afford that kind of time in mass production.

    if a 20+ years old company could make a car as good as other established brands, they would have long acquired proton. assembly of a passenger car is nowhere near snapping parts of a tamiya car.

  • looks like persona elagance in a very formal suit. instead of sharing snickers from sporty gen2, now its i would say a down-tone from gen2. normally,,,some unique feature of gen 2 like round cluster rear light, radio techno inspire, to a round shape of the inside door release. (last). which i would say gen2 embraces design in a proper theme, the minimalist of a sporty lotus gene. is a success.

    this is simply regularly proper. a right to be down-toned from gen2 sporty image has its own justification, for it to be a SEDAN. to be able to differencite between formality and sporty.

    korang yg kutuk2 proton ni, ada ke pakai keta proton? banyak soalan yg korang tanya menampakkan kebodohan sendiri. aku dah pakai persona h-line hampir 2 tahun. ni hasil pemerhatian aku :

    1. gps – didatangkan dengan standee dia. yg dilekatkan dekat cermin tu, cuma standee (pun boleh dicabut dengan senang). gps tu, kau boleh pasang dan cabut dari casing pada standee tu… masuk dlm kocek kau pun boleh… takde timbul isu keta kena pecah pasal gps pun!!!

    2. airbag/pre-tensioner belt… h-line aku memang ada benda tu… korang boleh beli myvi ke, vios ke, city ke yg langsung takde airbag, korang tak belasah pulak manufacturer keta2 tu!!! kalau bagi pun benda2 tu, bawak keta cam setan pelesit, kau ingat kau boleh selamat dari malaikat maut ke????

    3. fc : enjin campro iafm persona aku boleh bagi fc 6.9l/100 km… nak jimat camna lagi ngan enjin 1.6 cc? hari2 keta aku tawaf kat jb & area sekitarnya dan sesekali outstation ke pahang/kl/melaka… nak jimat camna lagi???? enjin nak power tapi minyak nak sikit…. pasang ngv la!!!!

    4. power window : takde masalah pun dah hampir 2 tahun aku pakai keta ni… kalau kong pun, aku ada extended warranty sampai 5 tahun…. apa masalahnya???

    5. handling : kalau dah pakai lotus punya barang, takde masalah nak amik sharp corner dsbnya…. apa barang nak compare ngan toyota/honda????

    6. spare-part payah nak dapat? kau hantar keta kat sc mana??? aku tak pernah pun encounter masalah cam tu… dan keta kau byk sangat masalah nampaknya… atau kau sendiri yg bermasalah???? lanyak keta cam org tak ingat dunia???

    7. harga 60k mahal? kau cuba beli myvi/viva/alza full-spec dan bandingkan ngan apa yg proton offer…. aku lebih puashati ngan proton….

      aku stuju ngan ko….patutnyer kita berbangga dgn proton bkn kutuk.penah korang bace kt maner2 rakyat china kutuk Chery walaupon kualiti plastik parts lagi cam hampeh???. proton is better than chery dari segi kualiti dan plastic parts. ntah2 diorang yg mengutuk ni kete pon xder…jgn2 gi keje pakai ex5 cabuk….

      those yg pakai vios toksah nk bangga sgt ngan dugong tu la…kat jakarta diorang wat teksi jer bro…ape nak bangga sgt…x sedih ke keta ko jadi keta sapu…kuikuikui…

    I hate to read stupid comments such as 'another facelift', 'too many facelift', and 'not much changed'.. So what??!! Even Toyota had done dozens of facelift to their cars!! And minor one too!!

    For those who said the G cares of creating market for the people in automotive industry? read this.

    http://www.motortrader.com.my/NUS/articles/articl…

    This shows the G is only wants the cronies to success. You got work to do or not is not their concern. Period.

    They only wants to monopolized the market for the cronies.

      Dear Staff,

      He dono why la… let him be la…

      He dono that most designers prefer to use timing belt becoz its less noise then chain belting… some designers use chain belt becoz its more durable, but comes with more pay…

    Last time RM55k can buy H-line with 2 airbags + ABS + EBD. This time RM56k can only buy M-line with degraded safety features (1 airbag only). Sweat (=.=")

    Anybody know where to buy old model H-line?

    I would definitely buy the old model for better safety features rather than these useless cosmetic changes!

    Proton! Bring back your old model H-line, I don't want this facelift!

    Am i the only one who thinks that this facelift actually RUINED the persona? I have a persona right now and i absolutely love it, its simplistic design really complements what this car is all about, family transport. Now they murdered it with the awful interpretation of the old persona grille, and disgusting bodykit. I guess i am one of the few who doesnt like bodykits that screams, well, bodykit. And dont get me started with the name……… or the radio….

      dari sini kita dapat tau..masing2 ada pendapat masing2…stiap dari kita memberi pandangan dari aspek masing2..ada y betul dan ada y salah…dan ada antara kita y memberi komen berdasarkan status kewangan kita..y kurang berkemampuan..mmg la diorg akan bli kreta keluaran negara..krn dari segi kemudahan dan kemodenan seperti usb, cruise, gps, skirting, dan lain2 berbaloi utk dibeli berdasarkan bajet diorg. kpd y berkemampuan mmg la boleh bli kreta luar negara..jd jgn dikutuk org y dah bli kreta nasional…
      sama seperti saya..keinginan utk bli kereta luar negara mmg sentiaswa dihati..tp kalau saya nk beli..anda nk bagi duit ke?dah tentu tidak kan?
      jika dilihat dari aspek lain..ada x kereta seperti vios menyediakan autocruise dan usb for mp3?so..ini juga antara faktor org mcm saya nk beli kereta nasional….tp kalau saya nk beli kereta luar negara..kereta luar negara berharga rm120k kbwh bukan pilihan saya kerana faktor kemudahannya tidak seperti proton hi-line…kerana spek2 y ada seperti proton hi-line hanya ada pada kereta luar negara y berharga 120k ke atas sahaja…

    I swear to god that i saw a brand new saga WTP**** broke down near The Courts Jalan Pahang… I pretty sure its broke down due to proton problem (engine etc) because the driver opened the front hood and checking somting… (Not coz takde petrol)… P1 fans kutuk other car maker.. I saw with my own eyes that P1 will always be P1…

    hahahaha….stupid comment by stupid basher…..before u comment please do research la…i dun want to compare with toyota or honda because later someone will defend they beloved " auto cruise mode all the time" car and " easily can caught in fire" car are expensive because of the tax….i want to compare it wif p2…is the lame overprice myvi base line get 2 airbag abs,ebd,?….is the lame overpriced alza get 10 airbag?….how much p2 increased their price every time they do minor cosmetic change to the myvi..does p2 dare to show their crash test result…..they dont even have capability to improve the engine…. this persona offer you not even cosmetic change but also upgrade to the engine….and for your information proton invest million to improve NVH, agronomic, aircond to give you the best…its value for money…a handsome car suitable for family and also young people….the best in its class ride and handling….and more….i like the side mirror lamp….i like the color and i already booked one and waiting to receive my car next week…
