proton inspira

Production of the Proton Inspira has now been officially stopped, a source confirmed. It would appear that production of the rebadged Mitsubishi Lancer has ground to a halt way back in early April this year. With that said, interested parties can still purchase the Inspira as remaining units of the car are still on sale – evident from it being featured on Proton Edar’s website.

The Proton Inspira was first introduced into the Malaysia market in 2010. As of now, three flavours are offered – a 1.8 M/T Executive followed by a 2.0 Executive and 2.0 Premium (both equipped with CVT transmissions). To recap, the 1.8 litre engine puts out 140 hp and 177 Nm of torque while the more powerful 2.0 litre unit produces 150 hp and 197 Nm instead.

Prices for the C-segment sedan begin at RM77,820 for the base 1.8. The 2.0 Executive goes for RM84,365 while the range-topping 2.0 Premium carries a price tag of RM91,586. All prices quoted are inclusive of on-the-road (OTR) costs and insurance. So there you have it, if you’re in the market for a sporty, four-door sedan for around RM90k, look no further and wait no longer. Bonus savings if you’re after a manual, too.
