Thanks to reader Ekhwan Ismail, we have the best view of the Proton Prevé hatchback yet. He spotted this partially covered P3-22A test mule at the HICOM intersection of the KESAS highway, which is where Proton’s Shah Alam factory is.

We’ve showed you pics of a black example before, but these daytime spyshots give us a better view of the upcoming Prevé hatchback’s shape and lines. The wheels, which appear to fill up the arches nicely, are the same as those previously seen, but the seven spokes have been taped up to confuse. Also covered are the car’s nose and rear section from the C-pillar backwards.

At the Thai and Australian launches of the Prevé, Proton said that we can expect the hatchback variant to debut sometime this year. It could be pretty soon, given the number of recent sightings!
