Perdana Overview

Drawing some heavy resemblance from the eighth-generation Honda Accord, the ongoing iteration of the Proton Perdana made its public debut in 2016 with prominent cosmetic updates. Proton is a Malaysian baes automaker, and for the Malaysian markets, the Proton Perdana is one such model that is very popular mainly due to its artistic appearance. The Proton designers must receive wide acclamation for designing Perdana in such a way that every inch and corner oozes out sophistication and elegance. The cabin design speaks of premium-ness with quality upholstery, fine-wood trim, and black molding. 

Perdana is available in two variants - 2.0L and 2.4L; both are powered by naturally-aspirated mills and utilize a 5-speed automatic transmission.  In the Malaysian auto-market, Perdana faces tough competition from Toyota Camry and Honda Civic. 

Proton Perdana Interior & Features

The Proton Perdana has a scintillating interior designing and layout which is a perfect blend of functionality and artistry. The interior is as stunning as you would find the exterior to be. When you get inside the cabin, the most noteworthy feature is the fine wood grain trim and black molding on the cabin, which makes it warm and cushy. The leather seats are wrapped in premium quality soft fabric upholstery to offer a plush feel to the occupants. The cabin has ample space with enough legroom and headroom space for the occupants to be seated comfortably. The rear seats are equally comfortable as the front ones are and there are multiple features like sliding adjustable armrest and console compartments for storage, further add to the convenience feature of the occupants. 

Coming to the centre-instrument console, we get a multi-function steering wheel with all audio, Bluetooth, and cruise controls. There is also a 6.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, USB, AUX-in, MP3, WMA, CD, DVD, and CD-R. It also gets a touchscreen advanced GPS navigation system with voice control. Perdana also features dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8-way power driver seat, a 4-way passenger seat, six speakers, auto cruise control, and rear foldable seats. The cabin amenities contributing to the comfort and convenience of the occupants are immense.

Perdana Exterior

The exterior aesthetics of Perdana are as mesmerizing as the interior features are. Talking about the front fascia first, it looks absolutely stunning with the chrome bar grille wrapped around HID/halogen headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lights. The grills also don Proton Wings enhancing the front bumper and the overall front profile. Along with this, there are nice sharp and sleek lines beautifully contouring the whole body of the car. The lines also complement the aerodynamic functionality of the car.  Coming to the side profile of the car, it also gets those sleek character lines and Perdana riding on the 17-inch alloy wheels looks masculine and huge while looking at the side profile. The 2.4L variant wheels get the dual-tone finish and the 2.0L. get the single-tone one. Also dominating the side profile are the ORVM’s with turn signals and the sloping roof which looks like a perfect declination. The rear profile also is no less than enchanting with wrap-around LED tail-lights placed neatly at the rear section. Additionally, there are chrome accents, shark-fin antenna, body colored exhaust openings, and diffuser panel to uplift the style quotient of the rear profile. 

The Perdana is ergonomically well-designed and hence the ride and handling feature are top-notch. The suspension set-up is handled by an independent double-wishbone with coil spring and stabilizer at the front while at the rear it comes with an independent multi-link with coil spring and stabilizer. 

Perdana rides on shiny 17-inch alloy wheels are shod with 225/50 R17 tyres on both the variants. It offers a wheelbase of 2,800mm and a kerb weight of 1,510kg for 2.0L and 1,535kg for the 2.4L variant. 

The Proton Perdana comes in a wide variety of colour options including Midnight Black, Sterling Silver, Cotton White, Graphite Grey, Ruby Red, Citrine Gold, and Silver Moon Dust. Its aerodynamic flair, sloped roof, and busy rear section provide it a distinctive look that imparts an unmistakable presence while it is out on roads.

Proton Perdana Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Perdana is available in two variants and two engine options - 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre. While the former 2.0L Perdana is powered by a 1997cc SOHC four-cylinder engine that generated a maximum power of 160 PS at 6,300 rpm and a peak torque of 189 Nm at 4,300 rpm, the other 2.4L variant uses a 2354cc four-cylinder DOHC power mill with power and torque rated at 180 PS at 6,500 rpm and 222 Nm at 4,300 rpm respectively. Both the variants come mated to a 5-speed automatic gearbox. The engine offers an efficient fuel-economy of 13 kmpl. The steering wheel also offers a sharp response to allow the driver to have better stability and control. There are also paddle-shifters for smooth and quick gear shifting.

    I got an option of either choosing between the Honda City and the Proton Perdana. But honestly, I love the fact that this Perdana is slightly cheaper than the Civic while being equally stylish and powerful. The only problem with the Perdana is that not a lot of people know about it or consider it as good as a Honda, Read More

    I prefer comfort over looks; hence I opted for Proton Perdana. It provides you enough legroom to ride comfortably. While its swift and well-performing engine never fails to amaze you with its high-quality ride on rough terrains as well. It is packed with an ample amount of features, including ABS, EBD, Crash Sensor, Engine Check Warning, Front, and Side Impact Read More

    The best thing I like about the Perdana is its responsive powertrain. The engine and transmission are absolutely smooth. The torque becomes immediately responsive even at low acceleration. This is extremely useful while turning short corners in the city. But it’s on the highway where the Perdana actually shines. The cruising speed is great. The Perdana has good fuel economy Read More

    The Proton Perdana is one highly capable underdog in my eyes. When I was looking out for buying a new car, I was impressed with the package which the Perdana has to offer. Though the fact that it is relatively a not so acclaimed option in the premium executive sedan space, the Proton Perdana has some really nice traits up Read More

    I am a middle aged man and have had the opportunity to try many car brands.

Last month I bought a new car and it was the Proton Perdana driven by Japanese engineering. My car is very Read More

    My experiences with sedans have not been very good by far, either they were too stylish for me or too boring to drive. This once I was in for a good surprise when my wife gifted me a Proton Perdana for my 40th birthday. The red colour and beautiful body work of the car made me gasp at it in Read More
