Proton’s salvo of four special edition models today rounds off with the 2021 Exora Black Edition, which joins the Saga R3 Limited Edition, Iriz R3 Limited Edition and Persona Black Edition in making their debut via a virtual launch.

Like the others, the Exora Black Edition is a limited production run, with only 500 examples available. The edition, which is based on the Exora RC that was launched in 2019, is priced at RM67,800 on-the-road without insurance, but with sales tax exemption until June 30, which makes it RM3,000 more than the Premium variant (RM64,800). The price will increase by RM2k to RM69,800 when the tax is reintroduced on July 1.

The MPV adopts the darkened route first seen on the Saga Anniversary Edition – as its moniker suggests, the Exora comes dressed with a metallic Quartz Black exterior, with gold providing contrast, the latter shade being found on the 16-inch alloy wheels and through matte dark gold accents on the bumper as well as a decal line on the lower sides.

Inside, the Exora Black Edition comes with black leatherette upholstery and door trim, complete with contrast stitching. The surrounds of the AC/infotainment console panel and gear lever gaiter is finished in dark gold, while the gear lever bezel is now done in gloss black for the edition.

No changes mechanically, the Exora continuing on with the familiar 1.6 litre Campro turbocharged engine, which offers 140 PS and 205 Nm of torque from 2,000 to 4,000 rpm, the mill being paired with a CVT.

Aside from the introduction of a new rear overhead monitor (which is actually an old accessory that was dropped when the RC was announced), there are also no revisions to the interior kit. The 2019 update added a 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 embedded eSIM card, with 1GB of free data per month for five years).
