    2021 Proton Persona Gallery

    Design

    Since the Persona is based on the Iriz, they share many design cues but apart from the obvious, they can be differentiated from the front bumper and exterior trim colours for the 2021 facelifted Proton Persona.

    Dimensions

    Dimensions wise, it is shorter than both the Honda City and Toyota Vios, although the wheelbase is similar. The Persona is by far the tallest among them and it's apparent in the flesh.

    2019 Proton Persona Dimensions
    Length 4,362 mm
    Width 1,722 mm
    Height 1,554 mm
    Wheelbase 2,555 mm
  • Interior


    Dashboard

    There's a new floating-style infotainment display with upgraded “Hi Proton” voice command that now controls the power windows and air-conditioning.

    Speaking of air-conditioning, the controls have become digital, and there's 3 USB ports underneath it.

    Space and Practicality

    Interior space is decent, headroom is generous given the height of the car and knee room is acceptable for its segment.

    2021 Proton Persona Specs and Features

    No Apple CarPlay and Android Auto but there is MirrorLink for your smartphones and of course, Bluetooth.

  • Powertrain

     01

    Engine

    An ageing powertrain, the 1.6-litre VVT engine making 109 PS and 150 Nm of torque that is paired to a CVT, is carried over from before. However, the characteristics of the CVT is said to be altered.

  • Driving Performance


    View the Proton Persona Review

    Acceleration

    Given that the powertrain is largely unchanged, we expect the performance figures to be similar from before. The 2019 Persona completed the 0-100 km/h sprint in 11.7 seconds, while 100-0 km/h braking distance took 45.5 meters.

    In comparison, the Toyota Vios did the century sprint in 12.7 seconds and stopped in 45.0 meters.

    Steering and Handling

    Handling is excellent as expected from a Proton. Body roll is well contained despite its tall body, which boosts confidence on highways with sweeping bends.

  • Ride Comfort


    Passenger Comfort

    Where suspension is concerned, the balance between pliancy and handling is spot on. Undulations are quickly sorted out and doesn’t get jolted over potholes and rough patches.

    Sound Proofing

    Sound insulation is about average; reasonable at city speeds but above that tyre, wind and powertrain noise become intrusive.

  • Fuel Economy

     01

    Fuel Consumption

    Fuel consumption is also expected to be similar to before. In mixed conditions, the Persona achieved 8.4-litre/100 km. Compared to the Toyota Vios’ 6.8-litre/100 km, it’s rather poor.

  • Conclusion

Proton Persona 2023 has total 5 color options in Malaysia: Ruby Red, Snow White, Armour Silver, Jet Grey, Rosewood Maroon.

Ruby Red
