The biggest surprise for the little 2019 new Proton Saga is its infotainment, at least that’s true for the Premium variant. It may have just 4 speakers but thanks to a high-quality sound processor, audio quality is far better than any budget car, close to rivalling some more expensive car’s six-speaker setup.
The infotainment also lacks voice control that’s available in the Proton Iriz, but that’s just a gimmicky feature and it’s not something that we will miss. What we missed not having, however, is Android Auto/Apple CarPlay connectivity (available in a Kia Picanto), which is a shame because the infotainment’s graphics and response is pretty good.
There’s an EasyConnect for Android MirrorLink-like feature, but that’s not something you will want to use because it requires your phone’s screen to be on all the time.
Safety features is quite basic, with electronic stability control available in the Premium variant. Airbag count stops at just two throughout the range.
