From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Proton Persona

For an entry-level sedan, the Proton Persona looks quite smart with a flowing design which looks very youthful. The curvy layout of headlamps, as well as tail lamps, do make the Proton Persona feel a car from the current generation, which is something which other entry-level sedans do lack due to cost-cutting. 

Another praiseworthy aspect for an entry-level sedan like the Proton Persona is the amount of safety features it is packed with. The Proton Persona is equipped with all the bells and whistles in this arena, like six airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control, vehicle stability control, and front and rear parking sensors, which make the car feel safe and secure.

Proton Saga

The Proton Saga is fairly big for a car of its price. The overall length and width of the car feel as big as a car from one segment above, giving it a feel of driving a bigger car.

The bigger dimension of the Proton Saga on the outside clearly makes one feel pampered on the inside as well. The space levels inside the cabin are quite massive, with very impressive legroom and knee room at the rear.

Apart from the space, another area which makes the inner occupants of the car feel comfortable is the plush ride quality. The suspension setup is on the softer side, which is comfortable for long drives as well.

Proton Persona

While the exterior design of the Proton Persona feels youthful, the in-cabin experience is not all that premium, thanks to a very sober-looking cabin design as well as pared-down build quality. Also, there are a number of crucial features which have been put up in their very basic forms, like the headlamps which miss out on LEDs or projectors or lack of a modern automatic climate control system.

The headlamps have a very nice design, however, the visibility of the throw from them during dark conditions is not too good as compared to that of other cars in this category.

Proton Saga

Going by the exterior looks, it is very clear that the Proton Saga is not a car from today’s generation. While the low slung stance makes it feel dynamic, the overall boxy profile is clearly not trendy and might not appeal to the young generation at least.

Step inside the cabin and the dated feel of the car strengthens even more. The dashboard looks terribly dated and feels as if it belongs to two or three decades old.

For a car of this price, the Proton Saga lacks a number of comfort and convenience features which the buyers of today’s generation take for granted. The lack of a proper touch screen audio system itself is a turn off for many buyers.
