First peek at the 2021 Proton Saga R3 Edition - third R3 model after Iriz and Persona? 01

Just a few days ago, we asked if the 2020 Proton Saga deserves an R3 Edition. Well get ready Malaysia, looks like there will be a Proton Saga R3 Edition in 2021, judging by these leaks!

Shared by our friends over at Careta, these two pictures depict the interior of the upcoming Saga R3 Edition. The black interior is broken up by yellow highlights - not unlike the quick-selling Saga 35th Anniversary Edition - and there's also a leather-wrapped steering wheel and 'R3 Limited Edition' stitching on the seats, hinting at its relative sportiness.

In 2019, Proton Chief Designer, Azlan Othman mentioned of the “R3 Sports”, Lifestyle” and “Design” packages that could be offered to Proton cars.

Some have said that the R3 Sports package might offer a 30% boost in performance, but how far that's true is still unconfirmed. R3 is to Proton what Gazoo Racing is to Toyota, and they've created some amazing cars that we hope makes a return someday - maybe 2021?

2021 is fast shaping up to be a very busy year for Proton as they gear up to launch the facelifted Proton Persona, Proton Iriz and 'Iriz Active' (both heavily touted to feature new 4-speed automatic gearboxes, and each with their own sporty editions).
