UPDATE: Read our first impression Proton Exora Bold Test Drive Review!

The refreshed Proton Exora has been the most talked about car of late, with spyshots, unmasked units being transported and leaked brochures all out in the open. With this as background, Proton has finally released official details of the facelifted MPV, confirming much of the details we already know.

The long-awaited Campro Charge Fuel Efficiency (CFE) engine powers the Exora Bold Premium and the range-topping Exora Prime. This CFE engine puts out 138 hp at 5,000 rpm and 205 Nm of torque from 2,000 to 4,000 rpm from 1.6 litres. Paired to a CVT gearbox, top speed is 185 km/h and 0-100 km/h is done in 13.3 seconds. Claimed fuel consumption is 7.8 litres per 100 km.

As our eagle-eyed Anthony spotted, the CFE isn’t just a Campro with a turbo bolted on. The stroke of the engine has been shortened from 88 mm to 86 mm, resulting in a smaller displacement of 1,561 cc vs the Campro CPS’ 1,597 cc.

“Boosted with the more efficient 1.6L engine, customers will experience powerful performance which is comparable to a 2.0L engine, with much lower fuel consumption. The additional power kicks in to provide more pulling power when accelerating or overtaking. In short, it’s what you can aptly describe as a ‘pay-as-you-go’ engine, which gives you more ‘vroom’ for every litre of petrol used,” says Proton Group MD Datuk Seri Syed Zainal Abidin.

Besides the two CFE+CVT variants, the Exora is also being offered in Bold Executive trim (1.6L Campro CPS with manual or torque converter auto) and non-Bold Standard trim, which is only available as a manual.

Spec-wise, the Bold Premium CVT gets leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering, front fog lamps, rear spoiler, electric foldable wing mirrors, cruise control and reverse camera with rear view mirror LCD. The latter is similar to the system seen in the Kia Forte 6-Speed.

What then is the Exora Prime, you ask. The Prime is the highest spec Exora, sitting above the Bold range. It’s a six-seater with the centre row made up of two Captain Seats. On top of all the Bold Premium features, the Prime gets walnut finishing on the centre panel, gear panel bezel and air con vents (all these are in a sportier “liquid silver” finish in the Bold Premium), metallic beige door switch covers and inner door handles. Also included are head rest monitors and satellite navigation.

On the outside, the Prime is set apart by 16-inch gold-finished alloys and a new Absolute Brown colour. Take note that the featured images here are of the Bold Premium, NOT the Prime.

There will be a “Proton 4 U Day” from December 16-18 (this weekend) at all Proton sales outlets nationwide, with door gifts for those who test drive the Exora Bold. The Exora Prime however, will not be available for test drive, and can only be viewed at selected Crystal Showrooms in Juru (Penang), Plentong (Johor) and Mutiara Damansara (PJ).

Last but not least, prices. Proton has officially released a tentative OTR price list, where the 1.6 Standard MT retails for RM59,998, the Bold 1.6 Executive MT for RM70,998, the Bold 1.6 Executive AT for RM74,998 and the Bold 1.6 Premium CVT for RM79,998. The Exora Prime is priced at RM88,998.

        Exora CFE will provide a better “real world” fuel consumption compared to CPS. The figures at constant speed do not involve any acceleration or braking thus not representing the “real world” situation.

        In real world, you need to rev the CPS engine more in daily traffic to move the MPV due to lack of low end torque. The CPS system is designed to give more power at high rev so at low rev, the engine struggles to move the weight of the car. People tend to rev the CPS engine because of this and this hurts the fuel consumption.

        CFE on the other hand, addresses this issue with a very high torque right from 2000 RPM. Coupled with the CVT gearbox, the CFE engine will improve the fuel consumption greatly in daily usage where you are constantly accelerating and braking. If you know how to keep a constant low RPM, CVT will help a lot in term of fuel consumption compared to Exora CPS

            Every Exora CFE related post there will be someone who said that the engine will be a fuel guzzler but as an engineer who understand how engines work, I can not bear the misinformation written by someone else.

            The best technology so far is Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive but currently the system is not perfected yet. It is amazing to understand what they can do with the planetary gear system, if they perfected the system, the fuel saving will be higher than what they currently have.

            Further more, engine efficiency varies with load & RPM so the way you drive plays a big role in the consumption. If you read on the latest BMW 320d EfficientDynamics, BMW claims that you will get optimum consumption if you drive according to the fitted “Eco” indicator. This includes using proper throttle application, right timing for gear change, less braking & etc.

            I agree that the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive is the best technology so far. However, it is still far from perfect because that technology is pricey and it is not fail-safe either – when the HSD malfunctions, then surely die lah. The only fail-safe mechanism is when the Prius runs out of petrol, where the EV mode will still have enough juice to go to petrol station.

          • Actually I agree what you said, just that I can’t bear tat you c&p each post.

            I do not agree on Toyota’s system is the best. It’s all TurboDiesel, full electric for me (or hydrogen fuel based tech, but that seems far away). Electric motors are wonderful things, they offer near to 0 fuel consumption when they are idle and max torque from 0 rpm while the T system still needs to combine power from both engine and battery. Of coz price maybe the issue last time but now it is not anymore. Instead, they chose to milk it until it dries. I hope they move on to the next stage of full electric (even with range extender, which runs at realistic optimal scenario to generate the electricity) sooner or later.

            Ignoring Toyota’s discussion, P1 needs to bring the torque in at 1600rpm on the next revision. Hope it doesnt end up like the 308 Turbo Pug. (Which coincidentally, the boost starts at 2000rpm)

            C&P is alright, but not the until the stage that does not pin points to the questions or critics that you want to reply to. It annoys ppl, trust me, i m an engineer too. :)

            There is a reason why I said that HSD is the best system. The system is truly a “hybrid” system. If the system is perfected, it can change at will from a full internal combustion propulsion to a full electric propulsion just like a range extender.

            They can further improve the engine with efficient diesel technology or SkyActiv like technology and they can also upgrade the electric system with a better system. At the same time, they can also run the engine only at the optimum working range if they want to with the HSD system.

            If every single part of the system is optimized, the cost would be very high, that’s why they did not make everything perfect yet. HSD is a true combination of both internal combustion & electric propulsion.

            Further advancement in internal combustion technology is good but it still can’t recover back the energy lost during braking. Advancement in EV system is also good but EV still has the range & charging issues. Since HSD is a combination of both internal combustion & EV system, HSD will benefit from further advancement in both direction.

          hahaha……… what about Naza/Kia Citra/Caren and Citra II/Rondo 2.0 RM60K++ to RM90K++? And also some other brands and models fall within this category or price?
          It doesn’t matter what engine the engineers have designed, nothing is perfect and so does the engine. Is all about improving such as minimize the loses and maximize the output. There is reason why engines are paired with add on such as turbo, supercharger, manifold enhancement, varies of injection, etc and types of transmission, etc. And the lists goes on and on.
          Having Turbo or CVT to the engine has it pros and cons, so does others systems/add on. Nothing is perfect, is more of a trend, market, demand, improvement and etc.
          If an engineer is very experience, will said and think differently. Driving behavior is only part of it to help to minimize the fuel consumption. Fuel efficiency is all from the engine itself, and on what “type of vehicles” was applied. Everything has it limits. Turbo maybe a fuel guzzler depends on how it was applied. So it won’t be surprised that a lot of engineers see differently. That’s the reason many types of new engines were produced and usually with improvements.

          Most of the mechanical and automotive engineers do understand how an engine works. so why a frust? ahahaha………………….

        Perodua also produces RM90k car… NaughtyCar.
        Exora Prime is still cheaper than Nautica… RM88,998 vs RM89,900, about RM900 cheaper.
        and the NaughtyCar has been discontinued just after 1 year from launch here, because Toyota brought the REAL version wearing Toyota badge, Rush :)

          u so funny.

          nautical is made in japan. a real 4×4.

          rush is 7 seater. made in indon. hence the price difference.

          i just bought the most expensive proton 2.0P, so dont argue with me. i’m not fanboy or basher.

      This is just my opinion regard this new model.
      I believe the turbo is a bold on turbo(low power turbo < 0.4 bar). Just test drive. Got power.
      But the spec didn't write out the compression ration and turbo compression bar (even no bar meter), turbo's timer or computer. I didn't heart any valve sound. So I believe it is a bold on low power turbo.
      I believe the extra price is for CVT gear box and bold on turbo.
      But I not a car engineer or expert just a lay man opinion. Actually I prefer super charger (if the purpose is for improve oil consumption).

        This is a family MPV 7 seater man, why need boost meter and turbo timer? downsizing engines with turbos are to meet better emission and achieve flat torque curve from low rpm. Turbo timers are yesteryears tech. Nowadays radiator pump will continue to circulate coolant after engine is turned off if needed.

        For the sake of everyone’s safety, I hope no one goes and chip it up or bolt on a bigger turbo to increase the boost and drive around racing with evos and imprezas. Especially not with 6 other passengers on board.

        I am no engineer but I think ancient lorry never have any belt or chain to replace because they use timing gear. That does not means those lorry are more advanced than Avanza. AFAIK, the decision to use either gear or chain or belt has nothing to do with how modern is the engine but rather more to do with noise and vibration. If you don’t mind noise, use timing gear like those ancient lorry.

If someone who talked about tax protection & etc. bought a re-cond car, I hope they are aware that the actual price of the car is only 1/3 of the listed price, another 1/3 goes into import duty and the last 1/3 goes into the dealer’s pocket.

      Exora Bold has 138 hp and 205 Nm. 5008 has an 18 hp with 240 Nm. It might sounds close enough but the 5008 also comes with 6 airbags (which I believe the Exora has lesser), heads-up display, Hill Start Assist, traction control, and the awesome bit, a panaromic roof. On top of that, it has 5-star EURO NCAP rating, advanced on-board computer on its multi-function display, and being European, an excellent continental ride. Really, you are comparing a donkey and a horse here. Too different.

      I’m not discrediting Proton here. I must say I’m impressed that Proton finally has a turbocharged engine fitted in their car. I hope Perodua would follow suit, which I think they won’t.

          There is a reason why Toyota/Daihatsu is not selling the cars under their own brand but under Perodua brand instead and the reason is not to get a lower tax.

          Since they already own the P2 facilities, they also can build the cars under they own brand here. Under NAP, eventhough the brand is not P1 or P2, they will still get a lower tax if the production is done locally, however the local production must be greater than just a CKD operation.

      mate, there’s are many mpvs’ around which from rm60k++ to rm100k++. So what is your usage of the mpv? daily use, weekend use, long distance travel, etc? Own a mpv to suit ur lifestyle most. Fuel consumption, repair and regular maintenance, resale value, loan&interest, warranties, etc must be consider.
      Most important, own a mpv which give the least problem and least maintenance cost as well as time. Time which you can’t have it back. the best mpv has to be at your convenient.

    More Power. More Style. Space is a bonus.

    5 star – using good and correct language (all english).
    5 star – with turbo power
    5 star – interior upgraded and especially exterior really looks BOLD
    5 star – space is a bonus as Proton stated.

    Myvi lagi best and Myvi lagi power lagi best

    no need to say how many stars. but….

    1. using mix languages is a thumb down.
    2. lagi power lagi best. talk like a racer. bigger engines is always better.
    3. exterior looks ALIKE like 1st generation Myvi and just like 1st saga facelifted to
    Iswara. the platform and chassis still consider same.
    4. space is not a bonus because luggage space even smaller than old myvi.

    Sorry, just my personal opinion.

  • My personal opinion (my deciding factor whether to buy or not):

    Exterior:
    1. Exterior not bad. Quite like it! Except the smiling grille (but that’s just me).

    Interior:
    1. Look at that dashboard. LOOK AT IT. That looks so pale, so old, so ugly. Looks really boring. It seems like they only care for the essential parts of the car (AC, audio, etc) but not the looks of it. Did i mentioned the word ugly? Oh God that is so 2000. And ugly.
    2. Oh God the logo at the steering wheel is just a SCULPTED PLASTIC??? Why can’t they do it like other brands of cars? Put the ‘real’ logo ie the exterior logo, with the same material, with the exact same thing instead! God that is really, really ugly and stupid. That’s one of the things that i will put my eyes on whenever i’m in the car u know! And i want to look at the nice ‘real’ logo of Proton when i’m driving one. Not just sculpted plastic -____-

    Well until they fix these 2 interior problems, only then i will consider buying it (i’m not flaming or hating Proton, just hope that they will do better and thinking in common sense). Peace.

    With this improvement, why banks still offer higher car loan interest rates for Proton?

    Either the banks still not convinced with Proton quality or still think most Proton buyers are categorised high-risk defaulters?

    Seriously this stupid discrimination by banks must stop.

    So what a rich towkey wife(low-risk borrower la…) wanna buy Proton, then the bank lower the interest rates?

    But if honest salaryman never miss loan repayment, shouldn’t he deserve zero interest when buying Toyota?

    How about those criminal, gangsters wife, siblings, goons these crooks must be slapped with 50 percent loan rates served them right!

    It’s enough with unfair NAP car prices, no need the banks to be prejudice on car brands and certain types of people anymore.

    Local car brands should get lower car loan rates(not higher) to offset the crazy taxes duties.

    Great stuffs with what Proton done now but the banks, haihhh, seems like all these Proton improvements doesn’t lower down the loan rates.

      I bought a foreign-brand car in 2007 and still paying for it (2.48% for 8 years). So far so good, never missed a payment with Public Bank.

      So if I want to buy an additional car such as the Exora Bold now (of course once I submit the documents the banks would know I can definitely afford it), don’t you think I deserve a low interest rate as well?

      Most of the time, century sprints quoted by car makers are slightly inaccurate. Usually you can achieve slightly better 0-100km/h timing in real world conditions. 13.3 seconds looks slow on paper, but you must also consider how heavy the vehicle is, especially the range topper with all the gadgets and electronics included.

    If our car duty tax structure based on engine emission and fuel efficiency test (rather than flat rate engine capacity), Exora would be way cheaper than it is now.

    Below 1800cc said if not mistaken MITI charged zero percent import duty, excise duty 30 percent and sales tax 10 percent.

    Now if that excise duty based on emission and efficiency tests (maybe conducted by JPJ), Exora easily score lowest duty rate among all other MPVs around.

    In U.S. the NHTSA put CAFE sticker to indicate fuel consumption and efficiency rates in each new car and it’s mandatory by law.

    Basically not only a legal reference for car buyers but for banks, insurance companies to fix their rates based on these informations just how clean and effcient that car is.

    The better, cleaner, efficient the car the more prospect for more new purchase and lower road tax, insurance premiums etc.

    Logically, the best car deserve the best price. Exora price should be just fine if using new car duty system. I speculate cheaper RM10K-20K than current price now!

From faulty absorber, replacement of the entire dashboard meter, faulty power steering system to recently major engine oil leak (hv to do top overhaul). My aircond fan is possessed (i.e turn on by itself, don’t want to shut down despite the dial is on off) and that problem hv been plaguing me since i bought the car until now. Hv already complained many times to SC whilst under warranty until now not fixed. anyway, i have face the fact that the aircond fan can never be fixed and i lived with it………so you are so lucky bro and i got a lemon car :(

    4pieces of wooden trim doesn’t make Prime like a real PRIME….All black door trim/garnish (yes, with some chromed parts) with all black leather seat will make a real feel of driving a luxury cars/MPVs…
    Oh yes, the red parts on leather seat make Exora Prime looks like a racing mpv….
    From the outside there is almost no different between CFE n Prime lineup, the only different i could noticed just a chromed ring on the fog lamp….

    But average, this new line of Exora is something i can be proud of…. 1st MALAYSIAN CARS WITH FORCED INDUCTION MAAA!!!

            I owned manual BLM 1.6 and with about 300kg load, my car can still go uphill at 5th gear at 80km\h. I’ve tested his car Neo Manual 1.6 and it’s difficult to catchup with the power and I have to ramp up the engine to get to the power to go through uphill.

            I’m comparing the same Campro 1.6 but the only difference is My BLM uses IAFM with 4 direct coil hance Neo using non-IAFM non-CPS with twin sharing plug coil. (This engine is only fitted on NEO 1.6 B-line)

            neo_77 and my Nephew are among the unlucky person to get the problematic unit. But the biggest problem is with Proton SC personnel who is not professional enough to help Proton Car Owners to overcome thier problems. This is the nightmare that most owner have when dealing with Proton.

            Like what I said before, when you have a problem with you car, it can be fixed either by Proton or Ah beng shop. When it comes to attitude, I’ve come accross the stupidest Proton Chief Mechanic at COE Shah Alam who don’t know how to ease car owner but making them Angrier with lame excuses WITHOUT even look into the real problem.

        Relax guys, this is my own experience driving my neo. Service wise memang x pernah miss hantar kat proton, so don’t make silly and blunt judgment. I’ve read a lot about neo and the engine with all the numbers, specs, calculation etc, but it is meaningless to me sebab my neo campro engine memang xde power at low RPM. What’s the point of torque kicking in at high RPM? The car is only good speeding on highways, i’m not a racer nak bawak 150kph and above. What the engine lacks is torque at low RPM to negotiate city driving i.e accelerating from stop at traffic light, entering a roundabout, overtaking, climb up hill etc….. My car xde power unless i slam the pedal and let it roar until 4000k rpm, baru rasa torque kicks in. Xde maknanya if while i am waiting at the roundabout and see an opportunity to enter, then my car terkial-kial nak gerak sebab xde torque. Silap hari bulah kena slam dari belakang. No doubt the car have great cornering but city driving is very dissapointing most of the time. Terkial-kial……Thats what i meant by cannot catchup with the other cars……..Anyway, i’m scrapping the car soon and getting a new car, but not a campro engine car, not a proton.

            I’m not sure with that. My uncle drives an Exora with campro cps, he says the car have no power. Small engine on a big body. My uncle said exora should have a 1.8L powerplant instead. I’m quiet surprise because my impression is that cps is better than the ori engine (that’s what i hv been reading on forums, blogs etc…) So whats the point with all this IAFM systems, cps, better spec, so called improvement and so on, when at the end of the day is how you feel when you drive the car.

            They put CPS in place of the original Campro in Neo because the original Campro has the torque dip issue. They also did the same thing with Gen.2. For Persona, they put IAFM instead but still the purpose is to eliminate the torque dip in the original Campro.

            Exora on the other hand is a big car but the CPS is the most powerful engine they have at that time so they have no other choice. They know the engine is too small for the MPV so that is why they develop the CFE and put into Exora now.

      Bro, when i’m driving by neo and my wife is driving her kelisa in the city, she’s always a few cars in front of me after the traffic light turn from red to green. That means her kelisa accelerate faster than me. in order for me to catch up, i have to press my pedal harder, getting RPM more that 3000K, my engine roars like hell then my car slowly creeping to her. My petrol become lesser very quickly. That’s what i mean by not able to catch up.

      The CFE compression ratio is 9.5:1 and the max boost pressure is 0.7 bar. No intercooler for this CFE engine. That’s why the power increase is obviously smaller than those aftermarket turbos which got intercooler and higher boost pressure, and yet the performance is already better than standard 1.8L engines with the tourque higher than 2.0L engines.

          Really? If what you say is true, then it’s a little bit disappointing for me because if CFE has an intercooler then more horsepower should be able to be tapped from CFE. The ah beng-made turbo Exora normally can get somewhere around 150 bhp depends on the setup. Twincharger can be a lot crazier, because the figure around 150 bhp can be easily made by a 1.4L engine (plus turbocharger and supercharger).

    engine proton, engine.

    this over reliant on campro must stop sooner

    this cfe is a factory turbocharge job. and we all know outside oso can do tcharge
    but of course factory fitted tcharge is bounded with warranties so it must be good.

    so proton comes good and pak syed walked his talk about forced inductions, more modern appealing models
    i hope u people can be more thankful and appreciate what proton is doing and please no more mindless bashing
    kudos pak syed and the team

    the only constructive comments wud be the interior and please no more than 2-3 variants of the facelifted exora
    the work for next edition exora must start now. satiria neo replacement start now.

  • this cfe has vvt on intake side and its euro 4 n 5 compliant. On paper,it is not fast, but if u do a non quantitative comparison on acceleration between myvi lg POWER lg BEST 1.5 auto on real life, u will know the result. So those driving 1.5 auto myvi, eventhough it has extreme name, dont cucuk2 cfe exora, not only because of dangering lives, but also dangering urself being smoke by nearly 1.5 tonne mpv :-)..for manual myvi LPLB se@extreme, u can try out,but remember,if u cannot shift fast enough, u will also be smoke by this gabak mpv coz this gabak mpv comes with cvt(no shifting required), but if exora bold owner shift from D mode to L mode, be prepared to be smoked by them :-).
    Pug 5008 is a better mpv, no doubt about it. The only thing i doubt diffrent info on fc n performance of msian spec 5008 with uk specs.
    In uk, basic spec 120 hp na vti (WITHOUT rear pwr window n only solid white color, manual 5 speed) cost u on the road mrrp price 18145 pound@rm89641, fc 9.5L/100km urban, mixed 7L/100km, century sprint 12.3 scnd. For thp 156 (solid white,manual 6 speed,WITH rear pwr window) cost u 20645 pound@rm101991, fc 9.9L/100km urban, mixed 7.3L/100km, century sprint 9.7 scnd.
    The best part,if want to change to metalic paint, u need to add 440p pound@rm2174. If not,everybody buy 5008 have to bear have only 1 color that is white.
    The fc,century sprint was done by manual cog, not auto as we get here in malaysia, so basically a bit slower in century sprint n a little high in fc. If u read the reviews in uk, the published fc really hard to achieve, really need to add 0.5L to 1 L to figure given. The price is without exorbitant tax in malaysia.
    So, basically, i think bold for 79k price n prime for 88k (with heavy tax even for national car) is actually cheaper than pug 5008 that doubt as whatcar best mpv 2010.
    If make comparison in term of price, exora bold premier still cheaper (interm of price versus equipment) compare to 5008, but nevertheless,5008, still one of the best mpv out there with the price tag given.
    Now, for 3008,i keep it short. By the way,actually interm of dimension,exora sits in between of 3008 n 5008.
    Being smaller, thp156 3008 cost rm97084, still one color white, no rear pwr windows. But still far better standard safety equipments minus many accessories. Fc the same as 5008, sprint better than 5008. Manual cog, not as auto in malaysia..
    Still not added the insurance yet, all prices without insurance n little tax.
    So,conclusion, exora bold premium n prime is not bad at all in term of performance, fc, price n equipment. They do a commendable job. Yup,it is still far if compare with one of the best mpv on the world such 3008@5008, but not that far. Atleast, it is on par or better than any japanese mpv in the same price tag, same segment out there n in malaysia. Remember, exora already has been named as best mpv in thailand n indonesia beating all the odd n japans counterpart, now its time for bold to shines n leave them a little bit futher than before.

      By the same link above,

      5008 – Official combined fuel economy figures give a low of 38.7mpg and a high of 57.7mpg. The lowest Co2 is 125g/km

      Another link,

      http://www.autocar.co.uk/www.autocar.co.uk/CarReviews/FirstDrives/Peugeot-5008-2.0-HDi-150-Sport/243879/

      5008 Specs & equipments

      All models will get seven seats, and the basic spec will include ESP stability control, an electric parking brake with ‘hill hold’, low rolling resistance tyres (on 16in to 18in wheels) and air conditioning.

      There are five power options: two are 1.6-litre petrol engines (120bhp with a five-speed gearbox and a 150bhp turbo with a six-speed).

      Three are diesels: a 1.6-litre, 110bhp HDi with either six-speed manual or six-speed clutchless semi-autos; and a 2.0-litre turbodiesel with either 150 or 163bhp,

      And the mother of all lies by this mad cybertrooper is: –

      FALSE
      “By the way,actually interm of dimension,exora sits in between of 3008 n 5008.”

      FACTS

      3008 – Its overall length of 4.365 metres and wheelbase of 2.613m
      5008 – Its overall length of 4.5 metres and wheelbase of 2.73m
      Exora – overall length is 4,592 mm and wheelbase of 2,730 mm

      Hello, Mr. Mad, what else you want to craps and BS?

The other colors are avalable but its an option n u have to pay more than rm 2k to have that. Read, read n read. There are many options available, i just take the sample of petrol engine coz exora bold using petrol engine, why need to compare with diesel option?
        The figure L/100km also stated in the brochure, dont use mpg since in msia we use L/100km.
        I never mentioned exora bold on par with pug 3008/5008, read carefully, i mentioned exora is still far behind it.
        R u saying 6 speed auto is better than cvt? If u caunted power loss of an auto around 15 to 20 percent due to torque converter n shifting, cvt is better option cause the power loss is nearly as manual n no@power loss causes by shifting.
        I only compare exora bold with its class, i never mentioned wish@stream, u can google urself which japs exora is in when they tested it in thailand n even indonesia.
        U r kind of people that lazy to read, pug sell product based on options, not everything is standard, and they have package also, from access, active, sr, allure n etc. Each have diff accessories, diff options. Only certain are common n price also diff.
        There are alot of options for u to choose and all come with price.

          Who don’t read your lips, you conduct “selective comparison” for a reason best known to you, in which it is apple and orange comparison at best. And try to justify this jaguh kampong product is a “good buy”!

          “When i said exora sits between 3008 n 5008 in size, have u look at its overall dimension, its including length, width, height n wheelbase”- Mat

          Length : 3008 (4,365 mm), Exora (4,592 mm), 5008 (4,529 mm)
          Width : 3008 (1,837 mm), Exora (1,809 mm), 5008 (1,837 mm)
          Height : 3008 (1,639 mm), Exora (1,691 mm), 5008 (1,639 mm)
          W/base: 3008 (2,613 mm), Exora (2,730 mm), 5008 (2,728 mm)

          OK, add one more variable,

          Kerb weight: : 3008 (1,425 kg), Exora (1,400 kg), 5008 (1,531 kg)

          Based on the above info, non of the dimension shown Exora is sits in between 3008 and 5008, either Exora are less than both (Width), more than both (Length, W/base & Height). Even the kerb weight of Exora is less than both!

          Enough said, as you said “READ & READ”, hei “Mahaguru Mat yang amat arif dan paling pandai”, jangan malas membaca lor …. LOL ……… you go and figure out how to justify your statement.

          Just to give you some tips, the best way to categorize them is by segmentation. All this 3 models are under C-segment, and considered as “compact MPV”, “small MPV), or the like, as may be published in the manufacturer website (as the case maybe). The “less/more than few mm” in dimension(s) doesn’t make them bigger/smaller as it is still fall within same segment.

        Expat. VN,

        “The best part,if want to change to metalic paint, u need to add 440p pound@rm2174. If not,everybody buy 5008 have to bear have only 1 color that is white.” _says Mat .

        “Where is the proof or provide evident that UK 5008 only has white colour?..bla..bla..bla crap stuff”_ says Expat. VN.

        Mat wants us to know that white is std color & u have to pay more for other than white.

        Expat. VN misunderstood?

        to Expat. VN,

          “Mat wants us to know that white is std color & u have to pay more for other than white.” – farghmee

          Still want to argue until the cow come home! ok to be fair to all parties, 3008 and 5008 solid colour for “White” (general term) is not accurate, but is “Bianca White” (specific term) is more accurate. To get metallic colours for 5008 (Nera Black, Aluminium Vapor Grey, Shark Grey, Egyptian Blue, Babylon Red and Hickory), the buyer has to pay extra GBP 440.

          This is uk presentation which in our Malaysian context is just divided into metallic and non-metallic colours, and come together with the price different.

          To say that “white is standard colour”???? Where do you get from? Plug from the sky r farting from your mouth! Peugeot never said “white” is standard colour in their website, but refer to “solid colours” and “metallic colours” + GBP 440 only.

          Don’t twist my word and misrepresent Mat’s sentence meaning! Try to be smart, but not so smart after all!

          So throw back to you, Farghmee, swallow your own bitter medicine:

    Generally the exterior looks updated.The small stuff that should be further trimmed are the wind screen wiper which prefer to install latest ‘frameless’ type instead of cheaper feel of frame type wiper. Also, turbo version should come with bi-exhaust pipe..
    As for interior design, the matching of Prime version really feels outdated as this should come with titanium or leather feel of dashboard trimming. The wooden make so cheap of feeling. Personally think that the Bold version feel comfortable. Yet, the logo still insist to put low class plastic where should replace by actual logo to enhance the classy feel. Furthermore, auto climate control in place rather than manual control..
    Talking on the power mill, just wana understand more the modification can’t benchmark to PSA Price 1.6T or VW 1.4TSI range in order to really give this rivals a compete…

      I recall someone mention about the comparison between CFE with Pug Prince engine (the 156bhp, 240Nm) but I cannot find it again (my bad). so for the purpose of knowledge for all, I read a bit. I found out that the Pug stroke is 77 x 85.8mm (hence the 1598cc), compared to CFE 76 x 86 (hence 1561cc). Perhaps (this is big perhaps, i know), CFE maintain campro CPS bore stroke and the 1597cc, it may achieve what the Prince produce. As for now, i’m still waiting for the ouput of the chat between Anthony Lim and Proton engineers to know why they made the decision to shortened. Anthony, hope you reading this? ;-)

        Actually it is to lower the compression ratio so that the CFE engine will be less prone of knocking. Higher density of oxygen in force-aspirated engines means more tendency of knocking, so the compression ratio must be lowered to avoid knocking.

      no big deal if a turbo engine got no intercooler. intercooler is used to cool down the intake air, thus improving the volumetric efficiency in cylinder because lower temp air is much denser that hot air. so the output per cycle is much better.and it may prevent predetonation too.

    It is very interesting that Proton releasing this version and somehow giving us the impression that proton themselves admit that the current exora is underpowered. It is like creating a working but buggy software that is not optimize and later down the road releasing new patches to solve the issues. Exora should have been like this “bold” model in the first place or fit in with a mitsu engine 1.8/2.0 and I would said it would sell like hot cakes. With Mitsu engine as the power plant, definitely catching my attention as a family man who couldn’t afford a 100K++ MPV :)

      if u maintain your engine, shouldn’t be a problem. the BOT is not produce by proton. if not mistaken, it’s by borg-werner, so if you maintain your car regularly, no problem. the turbo itself, depend on the pressure bar. if put too high (eg. 1 bar) and always open, of course la your maintenance will be higher. if less than that (say, 0.5 bar), shouldn’t be as high cost as the 1 bar.

        Yes, the turbo-charger unit could be a reputable foreign make, but the engine, exhaust system, ECU, etc may not be.

        Case scenario: add a turbo-charger, the engine runs at higher pressure + temperature. Being a Proton, at the end of day, everything else kaput except the turbo-charger from (Borg-Warner?) …

      Turbo charger lifespan for a Proton?

      I fear the turbo-charger in a Proton may blow in 1/2 year, or 5,000km. Whichever come first.

      Come on, on average 2 generations of Malaysians per household had been cheated by Proton. My dad had driven two models – a Saga 1.3 and a Wira 1.5. Myself a Wira 1.5.

      All of the above had higher cases of problems per year compared to equivalent foreign models. I don’t even remember now how many times I’ve had to change the powered window brackets for the front left and right doors.

      A turbo charger in a Proton? You have to be very brave or full of money (and time) to buy one.

      High maintenance and reliability issues? Perhaps this is the reason the Jap car makers and Koreans have yet to mass market their cars with turbo-chargers.

      My view, go for the proven car makes i.e. Volkswagen; Ford; Peugeot if you want a turbo-charged car. If you’re keen to go for the Proton CFE, at least awhile to see if there are any reliability issues faced by the frontline / first batch of buyers.

        Borg Warner turbo charger yes, but other components may be local i.e. engine, cooling system, exhaust system, etc.

        End of day, everything else may kaput except the turbo charger from B-W. Example: overheated engine block due to inefficient / low reliability cooling mechanism. Or the engine could not stand the extra combustion pressure and blow some pistons.

        It’s a matter of trust – I don’t trust the Proton brand anymore. 20+ years since 1980s, and still could not stand on own feet without government protection. And still producing non-par products.

            To all the champions of Proton, please put your money where your mouth is – I hope all of you place bookings for it, and prove us skeptics wrong that this 20+ yrs old company, who has so much trouble keeping simple components from constantly failing i.e. powered windows, could produce reliable forced induction motor vehicles.

            I’d gladly sell my foreign made turbo-charged car and follow suit in getting the CFE if it’s proven reliable and durable.

    Overall view, Proton done a good job, but it has to do better to catch up with its competitors. Right now it’s 1 generation lagging behind its competitor. in terms of technology, styling, safety and engineering. Meaning what Proton just released today, its competitors already have them 5 years ago.

    Good job. Proton! However, after looking at Exora Prime from the photos, I think that Proton should just launch a single variant rather than launching both Bold and Prime. I’m sure many would just go for the Bold-variant.

    Just my point of view.

    Hi all,

    Just return from test drive Exora Bold Premium 1.6 CVT in Senawang Proton.
    Been looking for MPV but i think I have found what I want.
    My family own Waja (Mitsu AT & Mitsu MT), Gen2 CPS MT and Myvi 1.3 SEi. I have test driven Exora MC, Freed, Grandis, Grand Livina 1.8 and Alza. Didnt consider Innova bcoz previous experience (nauseated and nearly vomitted after lunch and only sit in the 2nd row.. very bouncy even at 60-80kmh). Lastly decided after test drive the above MPVs, I set my budget <RM100k… so Grandis and Freed is out.

    So I test driven the new Bold Premium. Will stated each point vs the old Exora MC

    1: Looks: its subjective but for me much better than Exora MC especially the rear lights (brownish tint casing in Bold- looks better in gold colour compared white)
    2. Leather seats: now ALL leather. No more suede at the side of the seat. Good for family with small kids like me.
    3. Stated in the brochure electric folded mirror- forget to test this today
    4. Both front seats have arm rest
    5. Tyre is 205/55/R16… better compared to the previous 195/65/15
    6. Engine:.. In a nutshell… Far better than my Gen2 CPS (which Exora MC also have).
    Got 2 modes.. Normal D and SAT D. I think SAT is a sport mode. Got switch at the gear console.
    Very smooth gear change. SAT is even smoother. up and down gear no jerking.
    Going uphill behind the Senawang Proton (not like cameron/genting) from stop at the trafic light… initially rpm goes up to 4k then it settle down below 2.5k rpm. on flat road, gear change happened at around 2k rpm (80kmh). Better than the underpowered CPS 1.6 which revv up to 6k rpm at the same spot when i test drive exora mc one month ago.
    7. Dashboard is better. finishing details much better. colour combination is better. all this is comparing with the exora mc.
    8. Embedded LCD at the rear view mirror… it will appear if Reverse only. Got 2 lines. Green and Yellow inner line. Tested Reverse parking in front of the old exora test drive until the yellow line.. still can open the boot safely. even a large tesco trolley can pass thru.

    The rest will be the same as the old MC. only additional of rm3k from CPS to CVT/CFE + accessories. The test drive unit is only 200km on the odometer this morning.

    Thats all that I can share today. Really happy especially with the new CFE engine with CVT gearbox.

      Test drove too. More responsive than the non turbo version.

      Just discovered that they have a yellow substance thing in a casing at the lower front end of the body below the radiator before the engine. When collision occurs it expands once contact with the radiator water and form a cushion of spongelike stuff that absorb the impact. I never knew about this before and suprisingly they said it was there on the older model too.

    I prefer a stress free driving. I use Honda Accord and Toyota Camry as example. While both have their pros and cons, I much prefer the Camry because it’s so easy and stress free to drive. I don’t appreciate the more exciting driving experience of Accord.

    Now I have driven the earlier Auto Exora and the No.1 thing I hated is the engine. It’s so noisy and stressed that I too felt the stress. So much so that I wanted to puke. So how’s this new CVT turbo charged Exora?

    • Nurman on Dec 16, 2011 at 7:05 pm

      give it a try… the old exora rev high rpm.. similar to my gen2 cps… but this exora bold… the needle lingers around 1.5k-2.5k once u already move the car from stand still. even at 80kmh the rpm is about 2k.

      i agree camry and accord are damn good but they r in the class of their own and damn expensive. furthermore exora is an MPV with 7 seater while accord and camry are luxury sedans with 5 seater. apple vs orange.

      Just give it a test drive. it is quieter than the old exora cps. i like the lcd+rear view mirror!

  • Telor Sebiji Riuh Sekampong. That’s how time and again folks would flock to see what Protongkat peddling shouting on the pasar malam. And they got conned again.

    CFE – 9th Wonder of the World? CFE – Conjob For Exora? Who cares.

    It’s funny how Protongkat always rely on certain group of idiots for sales knowing it’s crap, faulty, worthless and still keep on buying it.

    Perhaps in economics theory it’s the imperfect elasticity – supply crap for fools. Fools got pulled by their sheer stupidity.

    And how do you tap this car buyer category? That’s right: Keep on selling them with bad products! Amazing how happy they’re buying craps!

    You thought you just bought value-for-money car full of power and punch? Ha Ha Ha last laugh from the Kroni suppliers not you the buyers!

    what a crap car! 1.6 turbo and yet it takes 13.3 secs to hit 100km/h?! the VW Cross Touran with 1.4 TSI engine does it in under 10 secs and returns better economy. The Touran has more torque and more power as well.
    I wont be surprised if the stupid CVT gearbox will die within 3 years. CVT gearboxes are not durable.
    people will argue about the price but given a level playing ground the price of the Touran in Europe will be a higher than Exora. but in such a level playing field market, the Touran would still be a better buy given all the specifications and the NCAP 5 star crash rating.
    proton still cannot build a decent car.. all crap

      CVT can die? For your information VW use twin charge (turbo+supercharge) and DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) or dual clutch transmission that why it accelerate faster than Exora that use single turbo and CVT,you cant compare global car with non-global car,that very wrong.
