告别Proton Perdana——Geely Preface可能将取而代之?

Proton Perdana 在市售了7年之后,Proton终于决定:第二代Proton Perdana停售。 基于第八代Honda Accord打造的“Accordana”,以其分为两个阶段的发售而闻名:2013年做对内装和外观做了小改款,且仅向马来西亚政府提供;2016年向公众发售时,车子的前后外观都重新进行了全面的设计。 在机盖下,Perdana的机械部分与Accord基本一致,有两具引擎可供选择:一具2.0升四缸的Honda R20A3引擎和一具2.4升的四缸K24Z2引擎,两者都匹配了一具5速扭力转换器变速箱。 在2018年的年尾,Proton卖出了870辆2.0版本,但2.4版本却仅卖出了90辆;而到了2019年年尾,Proton总共只卖出了540辆Perdana,全部都是2.0升的版本。 现在的问题是,Proton Perdana的下一代会是什么?在2019年Proton Saga改款发布时,Proton的CEO李春荣博士总结了Proton将每年推出一款新车型的计划,而简报图片上的汽车剪影也提供了一些线索。 我们都知道,2020年的剪影就是Proton X50,这款车本来

Proton Perdana “Accordana”只需RM 50k,用Proton的价钱能买到Honda的耐用性?

虽然感觉Proton Perdana已经卖了很久,但这款Proton的旗舰级轿车其实只经历了2次换代。最新一代车型被亲切地昵称为“Accordana”,而它早在2019年就已经停产了。现在在二手车市场上,Perdana的售价约为RM 50,000。这台有着Honda可靠性的Proton,值不值得你入手呢? 背景故事 Proton Perdana是Proton多年来的旗舰车型,所以在它上市时,它几乎采用了当年所有最好的配备。该车曾作为政府官员的公务用车,也是总理的公务用车。 Proton早在2013年就推出了第二代车型,仅供政府使用,而这辆新款Perdana是基于第八代Honda Accord打造的。 因此,两款车型在外观上有大量的相似之处,新的昵称“Accordana”也就应运而生了。 到2016年,Proton也向公众推出了Perdana,其独特的外观造型也源自政府特供的车型。他们还推出了一款排量较小的2.0升引擎版本,与已经上市的2.4升版本一起销售。此前,政府官员的特供车型只搭载2.4升引擎。 由于是基于Honda打造,很多人都感叹该车失去了Proton著名的驾控体验。 本篇购车
