The 2019 update for the third-generation Proton Saga has just been launched, and in keeping with the theme of accessibility, the latest iteration of the Saga arrives in three variants – Standard MT, Standard AT and Premium AT.

All are powered by a 1,332 cc naturally aspirated inline-four cylinder petrol engine producing 95 PS at 5,750 rpm and 120 Nm at 4,000 rpm, with the base model employing a five-speed manual transmission while the Standard AT and Premium AT send drive to the front wheels via a Hyundai four-speed torque converter automatic gearbox – this replaces the previously used CVT. Fuel capacity across all three variants is 40 litres.

All are equipped with hydraulic power steering, while suspension is by MacPherson struts and a torsion beam axle front and rear respectively, with ventilated disc brakes in front and drum brakes at the rear. In terms of rolling stock, the Standard MT runs 14-inch steel wheels, the Standard MT wears 14-inch alloy wheels and the Premium AT employs 15-inch alloys.

On the safety front, the 2019 Saga Standard MT gets as standard dual airbags, ABS with electronic brake distribution and brake assist, rear ISOFIX child seat anchors and rear parking sensors. From the base variant, the Standard AT and Premium AT builds further upon its kit list.
