A partially-camo’d Proton Suprima S has been spotted on a trailer near the Pedas Linggi exit on the PLUS highway – we thank Asraf Hadzwan for the pics.

The car wears the same capped steel wheels as the cheapest turbo Exora – the RM69k Exora CFE Standard. So could this be a Standard variant of the Suprima S to join the existing Executive, Premium and Super Premium variants?

We spotted a Suprima S equipped with a six-speed manual ‘box some time back, but there has been no follow-up on that since, so it could be for overseas markets only. Still, here’s hoping – a 1.6 CFE turbo-6MT pairing would be quite nice.


The Exora CFE Standard does without the reverse sensors, Bluetooth, DVD, steering wheel buttons, cruise control, auto-fold wing mirrors and fog lamps offered on its posher Premium sister, although the ABS, EBD, dual airbags and all-round disc brakes stay put.

We can see the Suprima S here retains its tailgate spoiler. Since the Exora CFE Standard is RM10k cheaper than the next rung up, will the same happen here, bringing the Suprima S into the sixty-grand playground?
