Proton PCC undisguised – driven by Tun Mahathir

Proton_PCC_Iriz_undisguised_020

Surprise, surprise. Exactly 10 days before its launch, the Proton PCC/Iriz has been spotted completely undisguised right here in Kuala Lumpur. How could that be, we hear you ask? Well, you only need to look at the driver to find out. It’s Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Proton chairman himself behind the wheel of the Malaysian carmaker’s upcoming “game changer”. Let’s call it his own personal teaser/preview.

It’s quite a looker in the flesh, we’ll tell you that much. Even without referring to its external dimensions, the new Proton is visibly larger than the Perodua Myvi. It looks much longer and wider. The rear end can finally be seen in full, with its LED lamps and rear hatch neatly nestled within a separate layer from the side body panels – what Proton designers have dubbed the ‘chamfered’ look.

The car was covered soon after it was parked in Pavilion, so we couldn’t get any close-up or interior shots. Oh well, these new pictures already show the new Myvi-fighter in more detail than we’ve seen before – internal leaks aside, that is. In any case, Proton has released revealing interior photos of the PCC/Iriz for us to see last week, anyway.

As is to be expected, the car here is the range-topping 1.6 Premium variant, which we now know will carry a RM59,888 price tag in five-speed manual form, or RM62,888 with a CVT transmission (both metallic, OTR with insurance in Peninsular Malaysia). As revealed in an official tentative price list yesterday, the range will start at RM42,438 for the base 1.3 Standard MT, coming within hundreds of the Myvi’s prices.

Eight variants and seven colours will be offered, and we’ve already detailed the exterior and interior differences between the models last week – now backed up by the full official specifications and equipment list. Safe to say (pun intended), it will be an attractive package no matter what variant you choose, with standard electronic stability control and a five-star ASEAN NCAP crash safety rating across the whole range.

The official BetulBetulOnz teaser microsite also mentions that the order books for the Proton PCC/Iriz have opened, so you can now register your interest in Proton showrooms nationwide. We’ll have more – confirmed prices, full technical/equipment details and a comprehensive photo gallery – from the official launch this September 25.

            ASEAN NCAP
            ———-

            The Ratings Explained

            Frontal offset crash test is conducted by having crash test dummies (Hybrid III 50thpercentile – male) at both the driver and front passenger seats and two child dummies (P3 and P1.5) inside the Child Restraint System (CRS) in the test car that moves at the closing speed of 64 km/h when it hit a barrier (crushable aluminum barrier) to a stop.

            Frontal Occupant Protection – Driver & Front Passenger

            The result from sensors installed in the dummies and at the body of the car will be analyzed and represented by human’s body region. To sum up, the worst results from each dummy (implies injury level; compared) by body region are considered (A). The assessment on the vehicle is also carried out to consider real-world situation known as “modifier” assessment. Any “penalty” (B) will reduce the previous score (A) to the final score (C = A – B). Out of 16 points, the star will be determined by the following scheme.

            Please refer to :

            All 5 safety stars test are done for head-on and T-bone impact. None for rear end. So 5 Star safety rating means nothing if small cars ( including your famous Perodua) are rear ended. What more when rear end collisions accounts for more than 30% of accidents

            The rear windscreen actual visible area looks way too small. Worsen by the black opaque surrounding it. I highly suspect this car may suffer from poor rear visibility. And its thick C pillar will add to rear blind spots too.

            Look at Proton, can’t even sell more than 10 units in Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, why so proud? Proud of what?????

          There’s a lot of factor contributing to 5 star ANCAP not solely depends on no. of airbag. Starting Preve, PROTON uses the German technology of “Hot Press Forming (HPF)” which enhances structure integrity to the strength of its car by 3 times. This technology used by VW, Merce, Audi and not by Japanese, Korean and Chinese cars. Why PROTON need to invest in putting so many airbag in cars whilst the car itself capable to absorb crash force. Some of automakers, prefers to put so many no of airbag rather than investing in HPF body. Ah Beng still opt for PROTON. Currently, Iriz is the affordable safest car amongst it segment. Thumbs up for PROTON!

            Who told you Korean cars not using Hot Press Forming?They are now using Ultra High Tensile Steel for critical area of their car body structure to score 5 Stars in global crash tests, not just ANCAP. If Hot Press Forming process is not used, how else can they form the Ultra High Tensile Steel?Pls check your facts.Mazda is also using the same forming process. Just in case you don’t know, Mazda is Japanese.

            Ultra High Tensile Steel is cold stamp

            while hot press forming is hot stamp..

            in term of tensile strength, Hot Press Forming is around 1200 to 1300 MPa, while is around 700-790 Mpa.
            So, is Hot press forming same with Ultra High Tensile Steel?

            Study metallurgy, then you know why material strength increase in hot forming compared to cold forming

          We need Malaysian to understand the cost of the car, price breakdown from end to end. What’s causing the car price to be so expensive. If needed, just take Mercedes Benz A200 for example, and understand the cost/price breakdown.

          Thai/Indo is building the knowledge fast, more educated Thai/Indo now. So once majority of Asian/Asean are educated, all will be paying Global price. Again ask yourself what should be the global car price that you should be paying. You need the knowledge, what should be the price for Honda Civic? (With knowledge, you’ll be able to understand global car price).

          One day, all of us in developing Countries should be paying a single price (global price), with all of us understand what we are paying for (cost breakdown). Always remember to have forward thinking, never give up!

          Have to wait before passing judgement on this car.

          Yes we all know Proton quality was never there, stuff just keep breaking here and there in their models and yes some of their models did not sell really well (Suprima is still a rare sight on the road today so much so I see more BMWs comparing to Suprimas) but this Iriz; they are really talking a lot about it so it has to be good? Only time will tell.

          But as it is the spec is awesome – its a Myvi killer and if the quality is there and the after sales service is good then we have a new winner after all these years.

          FYI the Traction Control,EBD,ESP,ABS all the electronic system were from Continental AG but now Proton has contracted Bosch for all of proton future cars ,that’s why Proton does not recall its cars for electrical problems as proton has to seek permission from company’s like Continental and Bosch…..

          Its totally different case for carmakers like Toyota, Nissan and Honda as this systems are made by their own tech team.

        But Myvi’s engine comes with timing chain right?
        I guess that one is a winner for Myvi.
        I wonder why Proton did not consider timing chain for their cars?
        Or, they still using the same engine?
        If the engine still the same, It’s gonna be nightmare for fuel consumption.
        Someone please clear things up whether Proton comes with new engine or not?
        Axia comes with new engine by Daihatsu, what about Proton?
        I need to know about this because I’ll buy for my wife. I don’t care about you people to fight about Proton, Perodua, Ford or whatever… I only need low maintenance engine and low fuel consumption.
        I’ve seen the interior specs, Axia is not that small. So now, my option is between Iriz, Axia or Myvi.

          The timing chain isn’t necessarily superior to the timing belt. Read up information here:

          http://www.crxsi.com/articles/read/what-s-best-timing-belt-or-timing-chain-february-2009.htm

          http://newsgroups.derkeiler.com/Archive/Alt/alt.autos.toyota/2008-02/msg02133.html

          But my advice to you is similar to what peyno has said but I’ll go further with it. Consider the car as a whole package, rather than just see one component and change your mind. Spec-wise and safety-wise, don’t even CONSIDER the MyVi because if the pricing is as per the tentative list, it has killed the MyVi.

          No question.

          I cannot recommend the MyVi in good faith because of what it lacks at the same price range. I can’t even recommend the Saga in light of the PCC. The Axia…only get it if you really cannot afford the PCC.

        Goes in line with Dr.M’s plan of moving up to compete with ‘global car’ brands from the likes of Japanese & Koreans. I sincerely hope that this vision of his is attainable, given that his 2020 plan is unveiling to be a dismal ambition. 6 years to reach a gross national income of US$12,746 from our current standpoint seems highly unlikely, and the only way to attain that kind of income is with education, the kind of education that we 40~60’s aren’t capable of catching up to. Yes I do have a master degree, but am I willing to be a high school teacher? I’m afraid the compensation is inequitable, but that’s what a good education requires. As a parent, I’m much willing to reassign all subsidies into improving our education system with postgraduates high school teachers and free educations until a degree, but this is just a single parent’s wish. Just like Dr.M’s 2020 vision, will only just be an illusion. With all the mistakes he’s been through, I do sincerely hope he has learned and will now steer his baby Proton at the right direction. Looking forward to proudly own a Proton in the distant future with fingers crossed that is.

But after seeing this, I think they have proved me wrong. The pricing is also spot on. I can’t wait to see it in person and sit in the cabin.

        Normally janpanese use the ideal boot volume. So if you fill water in boot you can get the volume. The volume of Iriz and Myvi look reasonable as Intenational Standard which measured by accumulating of standard blocks. But I am wondering if the Axia boot volume is measured by blocks or not. It seems the ideal volume considering exterior dimension. The axia is smaller than Myvi and Iriz. If axia has that kind huse boot volume it will effect passenger space.

    • Saw an accident between a taxi (Iswara) and Alza.

      The light was red, the taxi stopped,and the Alza hit it’s back (possibly because the driver didn’t really pay attention – he just throw a trash out of his window).

      My point is that it seem like a very minor accident. There was nothing on the taxi rear’s bumper.
      The impact was pretty significant on Alza…

    Does it look good? A solid YES.

    If they really ramp up the quality I can see this as a really good fighter in the real market.

    What I am truly impressed is how it looks so much nicer than a Myvi. And the even better part, if you notice the car has 4 people at least in it. In a Myvi, we all know when there are 2 rear passengers, the whole car sinks at the back. Pretty good that this one doesn’t do that.

    3 years or development,testing etc. With that pretty impressive pricing (and a manual on the 1.6 Premium!) I can see this as a really impressive alternative to the Myvi.

    Now, I wonder when is Perodua going to have that emergency board meeting… Pretty sure when they developed (read reshaped) the Myvi, they never expected Proton to come up with THIS.

      It isn’t fair to compare Proton with Great Wall. Great Wall actually specializes in 4×4’s while Proton has been focusing more on passenger cars and their subsidiary focuses on sports cars. To launch a foray into unfamiliar territory with their current financial status is very risky, imo.

    My above comment has been disappeared.
    In terms of boot volume, there is the ideal volume and ISO volume. If you fill water in boot you can get the ideal volume.
    The boot volume of Iriz and myvi look reasonable as intenational standard which measured by accumulating of standard blocks. But I am wondering if axia boot volume is measured by blocks or not. It seems the ideal volume considering exterior dimension. Axia is smaller than Myvi and Iriz. If axia has that kind of bigger boot volume it will effect passenger space.

    Looks like we don’t get the front parking sensors and rear foglight… or maybe we will, can’t say for sure.

    This car wouldn’t look out of place next to any new Kia or Hyundai, it looks positively modern and European. Normally, Proton cars never look too good from the back, but this car… is really something else. The lines from the EMAS have carried nicely over to the Iriz. The smooth, flowing panels are akin to a woman’s curves. The front though, while it looks great, I think the grille would look a little better if it were a little smaller… but I dare not criticise at this stage, not until I’ve seen it with my own eyes at least.

    All in all, Proton has pulled it off again, better than ever in fact, and I sincerely hope that this time, Proton keeps their words and promises. Just 9 more days to go !

      i think u r missing the point, many rich people try to be low profile by buying unassuming cars. they probably have porsches at home..but they tend to take myvi or similar cars to go shopping at tesco for instance….. easy to mantain.. n parts aplenty..n best part..no one knows u r really rich. n no one targets u.

    This Proton Iriz is by far the most beautiful Prton since the Proton Saga with the Italian wedge shape. Hope Proton can sell the top end variant of this model for below RM60,000. At that price I and I believe many others will line up to buy it

    Do you think there is a need to improve the design of the rear part, Proton’s designers?
    Some vehicles I am just too lazy to comment; we don’t scold the children of our friends when they make mistakes, do we?
    Remember ya, potential customers, this Iris is 1150kg, not 980kg, and it has 6 airbags + ESP.

    The front looks ok, and the rear looks like sport cars. The overall design looks something tidak kena but ok.. the interior seems convincing.. standard suspension , macpherson front and torsion beam rear. just need to improve after sale services and assembly quality..

    go migrate to other country if u dont have that kind of patriotism in Malaysia
    ——————————–

    What a naive guy that never use brain to praise this old man.

    If not because of this old man. you dont have to pay high price for:-

    1) japanese car (Honda/Toyota/Nissan) due to protection system.
    2) Car AP only benefit the cronies at the rakyat expense.
    3) TNB due to Cronies IPP.
    4) rice due to Bernas.
    5) Internet due to TM.
    6) Toll due to proxy.
    7) Sugar due to Syed cronies.
    8) G subsidies for Proton due to R & D.
    9) Lastly despite so many oppurtunity given for the past 22 years and MAMAK said he has failed and make the BUmi more lazy……etc.

    So, why appreciate and respect a fail policy which had damaged by this Mamak and make malaysia go backward as compared to other ASEAN country?

    Use your brain to rationalise your statement instead of praising a fail product which need subsidies after 30 years.

    – no road tax on the car !!!

    – number plate does not exist, where selangor plate got alphabet at the end…only wilayah plate has that !!

    – I’m sure the car is not insured or else would have had a road tax !!

    This Old man drove the car on public roads without the above & which means he is above the law….our public road laws does not apply to this old man & here is the daylight prove !!

    What if he had meet in an accident or worst still, knocked someone walking on the road…what would happen!!! If he really wanted to test Drive the car…he could have done it on a close road & not on our public roads !!!

    So, now everybody can see …… There are a lot of people in Malaysia where the law does not apply to them & that’s why our country will always be in imbalance no matter what happens coz of people like this old man !!!

    If it took $500 million to developer this car, then assuming Proton only sells the top specs model, it has to sell at least 8,000 PCC top specs model just to recover its total R & D cost. Can Proton sell this number fast enough bearing in mind there is a daily financial cost of borrowing the $500 million accumulating daily!

  • It’s sad to know that Proton still survives until today so that average Malaysian can merely afford to buy a car that doesn’t even fit a baby stroller because it’s hatch back. Has Savvy been discontinued? Anyone? It’s not the car price that is going to save Proton. Because even Myvi as a hatchback won all thw ways against Proton Saga, whatever variant it has to offer even Myvi is much pricy than Proton Saga. Anyone here care to tell me why? Either all Myvi owners are dumb or rich or both to choose Myvi over Proton Saga, right? Why don’t we just get over with Proton, pay market priced fuel but buy any car without crazily high tax? How about that? Does anyone know that you are borrowing from bank, paying a lot of interest and serving higher monthly instalment than housing loan instalment, just to get a pity Vios? How sad is it for general Malaysian? Sigh.

    PCC = proton Compact Car….

    A compact car, or small family car in British acceptation, is a classification of cars that are larger than a subcompact(B-segment) car but smaller than a mid-size car(D-segment), equating roughly to the C-segment in Europe….

    Current compact car size, as defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for the US and for international models respectively, is approximately 4,100 mm (161 in) and 4,450 mm (175 in) long for hatchbacks, or 4,400 mm (173 in) and 4,750 mm (187 in) long for convertibles, sedans (saloon) or station wagons (estate car). Multi-purpose vehicles and sport utility vehicles based on small family cars (often called compact MPVs and compact SUVs) have similar sizes, ranging from 4,200 mm (165 in) to 4,500 mm (177 in) in the U.S., and from 4,400 mm (173 in) to 4,700 mm (185 in) in international-based models.

    In Japan, any vehicle that is over 3.4 m (11.2 ft) long, 1.48 m (4.9 ft) wide, 2 m (6.6 ft) high and with an engine over 660 cc (40 cu in) but is under 4.7 m (15.4 ft) long, 1.7 m (5.6 ft) wide, 2 m (6.6 ft) high and with engines at or under 2,000 cc (120 cu in) is considered a compact vehicle. The dimension standards are absolute, meaning special consideration is not made for SUVs, CUVs, minivans, station wagons or hatchbacks.

    http://paultan.org/2014/09/09/proton-compact-car-dimensions-compared/

    p/s: Compact car = bigger than Kei car/A-segment and bigger than subcompact/B-segment

    ….PCC not a small car

    Wake up Proton engineers, the trend now is towards engine using timing chain. Durable. Why Proton is still using timing belt for their engine?You need to change every 80k km. Forget to change, snap and big repair bill. Even Perodua Axia have timing chain engine.
