Proton CEO Datuk Abdul Harith Abdullah said today at a special media preview event that the much-awaited Proton Compact Car will be launched on September 25 at the Tanjung Malim plant, where it will be built.

He revealed that the baby Proton sits on a “completely new platform” and will be powered by “all-new engines.” Deeming it the “game changer” for the national carmaker, he said the Proton Compact Car’s top-spec variant will go head on against its direct competitor in terms of price.

Although he did not say it, the PCC’s direct competitor is widely accepted to be the Perodua Myvi. The top Myvi 1.5 Extreme goes for close to RM60k. Is that the ceiling price we can expect for the new B-segment Proton?

As for the base (lowest) price, we were given an estimated figure of “below RM45k,” but of course, this is far from confirmed. Compare this with Perodua Myvi prices on This is just the first in a barrage of info on the Proton Compact Car to come your way today – stay tuned for more!
