Saga wagon spotted 1

Suffice to say, we’ve seen our fair share of spyshots of Proton’s up and coming vehicles. The 2016 Perdana has been spied on countless occasions ahead of its long-awaited reveal, and test mules of the new Persona and Saga have been spotted as well. This though, is new, and it looks to be a wagon version of the Proton Saga. Yes, you heard right.

Zainul Azraai managed to snap pics of this partly camouflaged “test mule” as it is being towed to another location. From the front to the C-pillar, the vehicle appears very much like a normal Saga. Beyond that however, there is a whole new rear section that features new tail lamps, and will likely see improvements to its cargo carrying capabilities.

Of course, this is just a prototype, and Proton has not mentioned any plans to make such a car. Therefore, what you’re looking at here is likely just an early design study, not destined for production any time soon. “Proton already has so many models, so it needs to rationalise. Additionally, Proton has not made any announcements that it is looking to create a wagon variant,” a source in Proton said.

The national carmaker is more likely focusing on its turnaround plans. After the introduction of the Proton Perdana, three new models are set to make their debut this year, including the new Persona, Saga and a Suzuki Eritga-based MPV. Nonetheless, how interested are you at Proton Saga wagon?
