Proton Suprima S Super Premium launched – RM88k

SuprimaSP03

Proton has unveiled the new Proton Suprima S Super Premium at the Proton Sales Carnival in Melaka today. The new variant is now the range-topper of the Proton Suprima range, positioned above the Executive and Premium models.

During the Suprima S launch in August last year, Proton deputy CEO Datuk Lukman Ibrahim had intimated that plans for a R3 performance version (as well as a manual variant) were in the pipeline.

The Proton Suprima S Super Premium isn’t quite that, but has some R3 elements – the variant adds on an R3 bodykit, which includes a revised rear bumper finishing, front and side skirts, as well as R3 emblems on the side skirts. You also get 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels. The car is available in only two colours – Fire Red and Solid White.

The Suprima S Super Premium is priced at RM87,929, which is an RM8,350 premium over the next step down in the Suprima range, in this case the Suprima S Premium.

        More than 8k extra and all you get is a bodykit and different rims. Come on proton, where’s an actual exhaust and why not paint the skirts. It looks too aftermarket. At least improve the rear bumper. And no difference in the interior? Very poor from proton. Expected a lot more.

          Proton never force people to buy. Why need bash? They just add more the variant.

          You must know the strategy of sales. You need more variant, colour, specs…. Not because to cater certain group of people actually. They want you to think, choose which is better.

          And actually, no better car in this world. You’re being fooled by marketing people. They always left 1 drawback. This drawback will be fix for next variant. And next variant will be 1 drawback. And that drawback is not present at current variant

      • It doesn’t matter, Proton is just giving buyers more options. Don’t like it ? No problem, buy the Suprima S Premium or Executive lah, it’s not like Proton is stopping production of the Suprima S Premium and Executive.

        Personally, I don’t like this new bodykit either, it looks cheap and Ah Beng-ish, like the Vios TRD and Camry 2.5V bodykit. A bit tasteless.

        Proton knows they will never sell many Suprima units in Malaysia because the majority of Malaysians prefer 4-door saloons, especially the older population (who can afford RM100k cars). Even if Proton made a Suprima S SV, it still won’t sell well. Prevé SV will though, and it’s coming sooner or later.

    wrong move by proton. whats wrong with those marketing guys. this is utterly rubbish act. its better to launch the manual version of suprima,i think it will increase the sale due to lower price n its manual turbo. many who want manual preve will go for suprima manual if only suprima offer that.

    who said proton fan blind n dont critic?we do critics when its nonsense. its criticism rather than blind bashing.

    What rubbish is this from DRB? How would anyone pay 8k for such an ugly looking kit. Look at the front bumper, it just looks all messed up. Anyone buying the Suprimas S, please save your money and just stick with the premium variant.

    I’m also curious on what DRB has in plan for R3 cuz it seems like the R3 brand itself has been going downhill. 2012 limited run Neo R3 CPS exclusivity itself has been killed off with the launch of 2013 cosmetic only R3 Neo CPS (which also comes in Fire Red). Now this, Suprima S with ugly painted R3 kits. The supercharger kit for Neo has also been killed off I think, so is R3 really been downgraded to AhBeng-like bodykit supplier for Proton nowadays?

    I wish Proton could do better but sorry to say, management under DRB has been really disappointing thus far…

        if the engine is campro, it is proton and vice versa.

        they should come out with more efficient campro.
        it has been 10 years and time to come out with 2nd gen campro with at least fuel injection and dual vvt control.
        every body is doing that and shouldnt be difficult.
        hire somebody capable.
        getting engine from Honda is shortsighted as they wont give you the best engine, your revenue become lesser and worst as proton market so small.
        just copy other people engine design.
        can copy korean engine design.they also copy japan last time.
        those proton with mitsubishi engine is not a proton car exactly coz it doesnt put proton tested by the buyer confidence.
        buyer buy them not because they are proton but the engine is from japan.
        only those buy campro is the real proton buyer.

    and thus i think preve selling at around 70k is the max one should spend on a proton of this quality. no offense but proton should invest more time to improve its quality rather than wasting time on all this non profitable products.

  • suprima preve on Jan 19, 2014 at 12:40 pm

    I don’t particularly like the looks and the design of this car, or even the preve for that matter. The overall body design is good, but spoiled by the headlights and tail lights design, some tweaking need to be done on the lights and grills. And don’t get me started with the DRL on the Preve, it looks really ugly, more like a cheap aftermarket ‘ahbeng’ custom made light, it just doesn’t go well with the car. Hopefully, the facelifts addresses these issues.

    I’ve been there yesterday. Didn’t even realize the car was there. No wow factor at all.

    They’ve repeated the same mistake again and again. They should learn the mistake they’ve make even during the launch oh BLM Limited Edition Tribute to Dr M. This car was never sold even a single unit.

    They should introduce the real R3 version with 180hp and 250nM on tap. The boost pressure of Punch unit can withstand up to 1.4bar but is set only to 0.7bar instead. What a waste of power.

    STFU lar wei.

    did u know that Mitsubishi CEO’s were crying at Proton Shah Alam to get the blue print of the S4PH turbo engine 1.6 that can produce equal power as 2.0?

    if this campro turbo be on par with 2.0, for sure 4g63 and 4b11t evos kena tapau punya.

    thats why Mitsubishi withdrawn with Proton Perdana 2014 project and Honda gain advantages in that area.

    Did you know campro pistons resembles Ferrari 599 pistons? yup..but they keep it in top secrect to avoid legal action from ferrari.

    and this is what the story of all proton engineers are coup with, to get their self confidence that all cars their produce are good and powerful, and the citizen are just plain stupid to criticize them.

    hahahahaha..

    • High Quantity engine -> high performance?

      I want a High Quality, not quantity.
      An engine that is very reliable. Fuel efficient is a bonus.

      seeing Proton cars can have so many defect, you tell me thier own Campro can be perfect?

      Buy Honda engine, continue with modern design and give alot of safety features. I will definitely boost 100% of Proton Sales.

      Preve so cheap, so many features.
      But nobody want a China Quality Campro Engine.

      One using Honda, no matter if it’s dated a not.
      It will sell like hot cakes. Reliability is the key.

    Nothing special and it’s very expensive. By the way, where is my:

    1) New and better Infotainment unit.
    2) New interior design with better quality and fit
    and finish.
    3) New rear bumper with proper diffuser.
    4) New rear combination lamp with brighter and
    bigger LED light guides.
    5) Global standard of push start/stop button. Real
    keyless. Key only if push start/stop button not
    functioning. How about that?

    Last word for Proton, Don’t spend to much time to come out new variant. You should spend more time to improve the current model. Spend more time and your capital on new models and replacement models.

  • Proton has no future under this new drb management. I pray to god that some miracle happens and drb leave proton so it can grow under a new management and owner. Incompetent. We all know how the air Asia was under them until it was rescued by tony fernandes and how he transformed the bankrupt airline to the best in the world. Why not selling it to tony, at least he will appoint proper experts to run the company the way he did for air Asia and catherham. This is a clear fail move by drb. It is better for them to go and run alam flora and stop thinking they own VW or others. Because one day VW also will kick them and will appoint another franchise holder.

    for me personally i already hv owned 1 of this suprima s premium version…and fyi b4 i decided to buy this car , i already test drive jetta , vios , city , civic , 408 , cerato,almira , attrage and focus for my consideration to buy … after doing some comparision on spec, price ,handling and safety of all the car…finally i choose this suprima s even i know that not all option the can match our expectation….for me if you can search the car in C segment with all the gadget in car with the price below 100k that will be this car…but if you looking for RV then you should buy others…..but atleast proton still can easily sell rather then kia or peug here……every ppl have diff option on the look of the car but atleast not like dugong same as new japan car design these days…..and for this new bodykits….maybe they introduce this model for makap loan…….maybe the 8k is too pricy but others also do the same thing…..dont like just buy premium version then go to accesories shop and buy copy of this kit is more cheaper….its some goes to others brand….so what the problem….even korea ppl still buy kia/hyundai even they know the design and quality is not good as japan and european car….but they still buy becoz they support and pride of their own national car…..so whats the problem???

    • The problem is – the history of unreliability of Protons in the long run. Wira’s power window problem comes to mind for instance. More accessories and electronics are nice but it would be nice to know that they’ll last for at least five years. Next is the design – nobody at Proton seems to be capable of following the Korean lead in trumping the Japanese at least in terms of ‘show’ factor. Supriman’s dashboard is a case in point. It’s hideous. The exterior front end I can live with but the back end definitely needs to be bolder and in step with the times.

    RM8000 can do a lot of upgrades for the engine, make it run efficiently , increase horse power, and it is not worth it for that bodykit and that rims. Whatever stuffs above price of RM1000 spent on the car that doesn’t makes the car go faster is wasted money. That’s all, fact is a fact. This is clearly a marketing gimmick.

    Well, proton can only do cosmetic upgrades for their cut equipped cars as the these gearboxes are already operating at close to their maximum operating torque. Very small safety factor of less than 5%. Any kind of modification than may increase power/ torque will definitely shorten the gearbox lifespan.

    A lot of proton owners modifying their cars will find this out the hard way.

  • Should vastly improve the dashboard look. Exterior front end looks decent enough. Back end lights could be a bit bolder. For me the glaring defect is the simple and cheap looking dashboard. Please Proton, don’t cut corner there. It’s really horrible. That’s the part the driver sees the most.
