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.

Toyota Vios

Compared to the previous generation model, the new Toyota Vios manages to look fresh with a very contemporary upgrade in terms of exterior looks. The busier looking front end, along with flowing theme for the side profile and curvy tail lamps make it look fresh and very much updated.

The new Toyota Vios definitely feels premium and upgraded on the inside as well, as it feels bigger, more comfortable and richer in terms of comfort and convenience features. The introduction of a couple of more premium features from Corolla as well as roof-mounted AC vents does score full marks in pampering the inner occupants.

Being a pioneer of safety, the Toyota Vios is feature-packed when it comes to being equipped with safety features. Things like seven airbags, panoramic view monitor, blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, tire pressure monitoring system and hill start assist are some features which are still not available in the competition.

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.

Toyota Vios

While Toyota has tried to make things look exciting, the overall performance levels from the powertrain doesn’t feel that enticing. The 1.5-litre petrol engine which powers the Toyota Vios neither is too involving to drive with its boring power delivery, nor it excels too much with its average fuel economy.

While the steering setup is soft and convenient for daily city driving, it does not feel too much connected with the driver, which might be a turn off for many driving enthusiasts.
