When Proton launched the Proton Saga in Pakistan, it also announced a lucky draw for the Saga R3 which is limited to 100 units in the South Asian nation.

With the competition closed, Proton Pakistan proudly shared on their Facebook page that over 5,000 applicants from all over Pakistan took part in the lucky draw. The 100 lucky winners will be announced on 30-April 2021 via social media and their website.

Unlike the rest of the Saga variants, the Pakistani-spec Saga R3 is powered by the same 1,332-cc unit that is offered on the Malaysian Saga. Recall that the standard and Ace variants of the Saga in Pakistan are powered by a downsized 1,299-cc unit for tax benefits.

Both engines produce the same power output at 95 PS and 120 Nm.

From the looks of things, the Pakistani Saga R3 shares the same visual enhancements of our local Saga R3 down to the decals and yellow-painted bodykit. Even the interior receives the same treatment with yellow trims and leather upholstery.

However, while the Malaysian-spec Saga R3 is only available with a 4-speed automatic, the Pakistani Saga R3 gets an additional 5-speed manual variant. Are Malaysians not good enough to row their own gears?

Granted, the lucky 100 winners will not be walking away with a brand-new Saga R3 for free. It is like winning the raffle on a pair of Yeezys - you're in the running but in the end, you still have to fork out your money to keep it.

The Saga R3 starts at PKR 2,175,000 (RM 59,125) for the manual variant, while the automatic variant starts at PKR 2,425,000 (RM 65,925).
