Changes to Proton’s homegrown MPV include the new roundel Proton logo on the front and rear, as well as new full leatherette seats for the Premium variant. Crucially, electronic stability control (ESC) is now standard across the board, though there's no mention of an improved Oil Cooler Hose (OCH).

Outside, you’ll be hard-pressed to tell the differences apart, as the exterior is largely identical to the earlier model. However, squint your eyes and you’ll notice the new roundel Proton logo. The Exora is the most recent model to receive the new logo.

Stepping inside, the same roundel Proton logo can be found on the steering wheel. The top-spec Premium variant also gets full leatherette seats, replacing the older model’s combination leather seats.

For those hoping to see the new turbocharged 1.5-litre 3-pot engine in the Exora, sorry to disappoint as the updated people mover continues on with the ageing 1.6-litre unit. This 10-year-old engine dispenses out 140 PS and 205 Nm, hooked up to a Punch-sourced CVT transmission.
