Personally I would like to give a big thumbs up that Proton did for this, Persona and Iriz.

ABS, traction control, bigger brakes, 1.3cc (fine with CVT or 4AT), large boot space, surrounding sensors, LED daytime lights, spacious interior, 2 USB ports, reverse camera, android head unit at below RM40k. 👍

For a price below 40K, this is the best sedan ! Fabulous Saga with a good design, VVT engine, all the necessary modern fittings and electronics, boot space, power to weight ratio, stylish, headrest, tyre size, brakes, traction control and sport mode (for premium model). Definitely much better in quality and value-for-money if compared to the Perodua Bezza. Great job Proton !

This price cannot be beat, especially with the features it comes with. Definitely something I would recommend to new car buyers on a budget compared to to the Bezza.

Great looking and feature packed inside out..good job with 4AT, the best and reliable transmission to date..cvt yes is more fuel eco, but mind you to replace and service them is a pain once the time is up..one takeaway though is the pricing of Manual, imho it should be lower considering the previous one goes down to 29k include otr in cny promo.. hopefully this one gets the same discount aswell before the all-new Almera changes my mind nxt year😄

They could have done such pricing and specs long ago, kudos Geely! (and Proton)

Somehow after listening to your review, I'm under the impression that our original proton management was complete useless without Geely. Only after Geely bought themselves in can we see admirable and significant changes to the proton range of cars. Does that mean we're so incompetent to come up with acceptable changes since 1985? Good grief!

This is the proper design sedan by Proton..as we know, the Proton designers put the best effort to make Persona more appealing as a sedan..but it still not good as the this new Saga, the rims is nice and chick beyond than every single model by any car maker in our market for sedan in price range below RM100k...yeah is hard to believe, but this is the truth to accept it. Good job for Protons team

looking at the price, i can tell there prolly minor slack on this car but
with aftermarket parts here and there i bet it would turn out great. really looking forward on this new proton, hope they don't used major parts from geely.
good job proton.

A car that's very close to all Malaysians before 2000s and after 2010. This was my first car five years ago and am super stoked seeing it move in the right direction. This is superb news
