      I’m curious – you say the price is crazy but it is cheaper than other 1.6-litre models. Is it your expectation that forever, Proton must give specs comparable to other 1.6-litre models but must have a price much lower?

      • meejawa

        Not defending leo, but looking at the pricing for foreign cars which are controlled by MITI, and Proton’s own reliability issues, quality issues, and to a certain extend performance issues, specs etc., Proton HAS to price their car lower for the same specs, that is the ONLY way they can compete!

        Until they start by really improving, and change public’s perception, they’re not gonna sell much. No 2 carmaker in Malaysia I heard you say? Take a poll and ask around, if people HAVE the choice, how many would go for Proton cars today?

        yes! absolute yes! so chips…you maybe the big shot here…so what?
        we consumer are the true boss ok! you are serving the society mind you!
        F off with your sarcasm. Till proton learn how to compete fairly, we as customer will have grudge and unforgettable vengeance.

        Be humble. Talk to the people who visit your blog nicely. We all know what our automotive industry is like. So stfu and be nice.

          I asked a simple question in order to see how Malaysian continue to perceive Proton. You respond with rudeness and crude language but I will allow your reply to be posted to show what kind of character you are and let the public decide whether your comments are even worth considering.

          You may dislike Proton and believe me, I have more reason to do so as they asked the police to take action against me. While my case remains unclosed after 10 years, I still approach things objectively.

          Bro, you reek of hypocrisy.

          And you haven’t the slightest clue of what ‘sarcasm’ is.

          And what’s all this about competing fairly ? Just for the record, car prices are high in Malaysia mainly because of the excise tax, much less the import tax. Proton cars (except the Mitsubishi-based Inspira) in Langkawi are ALL cheaper than their competitors. The taxes are our government’s doing, not Proton’s. Proton itself is only part-government owned, so cut Proton some slack.

          Proton has made a lot of good progress in the last 5 years. But when they announced that the Prevé would get 6 airbags and all electronic safety tech standard in Australia, Malaysians got very upset. But Proton didn’t ignore our woes, the super-safe Suprima S which comes with the exact same specs as the Australian Prevé and more is solid evidence that Proton is committed to doing business the right way- by respecting their customers. They aren’t perfect, but at least they have the resolve to improve and ”do the right thing”.

          Learn to respect others comments if you want yours to be taken seriously.

    Ñot bad..

  • synster

    this is almost affordabble!!!

  • Sajasaja Ok

    All car in Malaysia is OVERPRICED due to tax structure imposed by Malaysian Government. No such thing as “I’m curious – you say the price is crazy but it is cheaper than other
    1.6-litre models. Is it your expectation that forever, Proton must give
    specs comparable to other 1.6-litre models but must have a price much
    lower?”

    And stop spinning playing with words lah please such as “The taxes are our government’s doing, not Proton’s. Proton itself is only part-government owned, so cut Proton some slack.”
    You say government did the tax part, then say proton is GLC. Go slap your own mouth.

    • Chips_MTM

      It is true that Proton doesn’t have a say in how taxes are structured. In the early years, yes, it was powerful and there were some occasions when it decided how much tax it would pay in order to reach the target price it wanted. But these days, it is not that powerful. Its existence is ‘protected’ because a number of important parties have vested interests and because just one guy has often spread alarmist remarks that if Proton is sold off, if it is closed down, it will be a disaster for the Malaysian auto industry. That’s pretty much rubbish.

    For me honestly just take a look at the spec its impressive..the design too its not disappointing if i buy this car i would probably just add bodykits n the car will look perfect..for 79 K yeah its worth it…
