By now most of you would know that the ongoing semiconductor shortage has affected a number of car manufacturers, though in some cases, the severity is model-dependent. Case in point is Proton. While the Proton X50 and X70’s waiting period stretches well into 2022, other Proton models have a much shorter waiting period. Also Read: What's the waiting period for a Proton X50 or X70? SST exemptions to end in 3 months time According to Proton dealers we spoke to, those who booked a Proton Saga or Pr
Developing a car from scratch can be very costly, even for a regular car. For instance, the Proton Iriz cost roughly RM 300 million to develop (no wonder it keeps chugging on). As such, some carmakers would partner with one another in a bid to save costs. These carmakers would rather put their rivalry aside in order to join forces and develop a model together or rebadge. The latter might be a trigger word to some Proton fans but it’s a necessity. Also read: How is the Proton Iriz still on sale 7
This handsome multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) that you see here is the Geely Jiaji, a model that could potentially be a replacement to the ageing Proton Exora - not in terms of product positioning, but rather a spiritual replacement. What is the Geely Jiaji? Introduced in March 2019, the Geely Jiaji is a brand-new MPV. We sampled one during our visit to Guangzhou some time last year and found it to be a rather compelling upgrade to the ageing Proton Exora. Is the Proton V70 name confirmed? Proton tr
Before we start the story, allow us to clarify: No, the Proton Exora and Perodua Aruz are not in the same segment. The Exora is an MPV while the Aruz is an SUV. But the reason we’re comparing both cars together is because they’re similarly priced (the Aruz from RM 72,900, Exora from RM 59,800; before SST exemption) and they sit 7. If you’re wondering that the Perodua Alza would be a better comparison to the Exora, allow us to explain that though the Alza sits 7, it is more of a 5+2 setup rather
Back in 2009, when the MPV craze hit Malaysia, Proton and Perodua both added a 7-seater MPV into their line-up. Here we are in 2020 and both the Proton Exora and Perodua Alza are still on sale. Interestingly, both models were given an update in 2019 and there seem to be no signs of replacement for the Perodua Alza. This time, let's focus on what is seen as the best value-for-money C-segment MPV, the Exora. We'll talk about the Alza some other time. Throughout the 11 years on sale, the Exora has
