From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
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.

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 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.

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.
