FIRST DRIVE: 2019 Proton Exora RC review – fr RM60k

In this video review, Hafriz Shah goes behind the wheel of the newly-updated Proton Exora RC to find the long-running MPV’s strengths and weaknesses. Prices start from RM59,800 for the Executive model to RM66,800 for the Premium.

To recap, the C-segment MPV becomes the latest recipient of the seven-inch touchscreen head unit based on Geely’s Global Key User Interface (GKUI), with “Hi Proton” voice commands and 4G internet connection via an eSIM (1GB free data per month for five years).

It’s similar to the system that’s on the X70 SUV, with functions such as online music streaming, live navigation, smartphone connectivity, mirroring for Android and WiFi hotspot, among other things.

Elsewhere, there’s a new piano black centre stack with a silver bezel, two USB ports below that (in front of the cubbies), new semi-leatherette seat upholstery with quilted pattern (extends to the door cards), and a brand new exterior colour called Rosewood Maroon. Watch the video and let us know what you think of the affordable seven-seater family car!

    Basicly still the same car so no difference in driving old Exora this Exora RC. I don’t know why Proton still want to give another facelift because this MPV is already aging. Moreover, competitor offers better safety, design and features like the Alza and New Avanza

      Dude…. U mean that ageing dinosaur Alza with the old engine….. Oh come on dude.. At least the improvements are there for the interior.. Some more reduction in price… Though Proton can do better than this

      Did you watch the video? Proton did not claim it as a facelift. And the safety of the premium variant is actually better than Alza and Avanza.

      Please watch the full video before commenting.

      Proton cars are no good. They are all game over cars. Whoever disagrees is definitely ‘coming from Proton and DRB salesmen’

      • He can create VSC out of thin air for his Alza and Avanza because he is the resident Raja Jamban troll.

      Previous Exora, every 2 to 3 days have to fill up RM130 petrol. It sucks so much of petrol. It uses Zaman purba engine.

      Waste money buying a car that drinks petrol like the Jaguar Sovereign 5.0 of the 80s

      • Try the Innova. Yes, the new one. Then you will know what is true ancient engine and fuel guzzling.

    This the very last bastion of local homegrown Proton car. We are buying into our P1 history and national patriotic pride, not simply a car. Mind you. Make Malaysia Great again! maluBossku krik krik. hohoho Balik kampungg!

  • Getting lazier or somewhat?
    At least include the basic information of the car engine spec and platform displacement.
    This is a car info blog, please.

        Bashes never read or watch anything thoroughly, I tell you. They will nitpick and find fault with anything.

      It still has ESC, as compared to its competition.

      It at least has ESC so after VAR, it was decided to rescind the red card and just given a verbal warning.
