It also helped Proton reach numerous milestones such as achieving the brand's first 5-star rating at the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP).

Thanks to modern day sound insulation, you don’t realise how hot and bothered things are under the hood. Holding the engine in place and absorbing most of the engine's vibration are engine mounts.

A car engine is heavy. Even a small Perodua Axia’s 1KR-VE weighs about 70 kg. A Perodua Myvi’s 2NR-VE weighs about 86

Proton had always been known for its saloon cars that were popular with Malaysian families. The Proton Saga, Wira, Waja, Perdana, and Preve are some to name. The most ambitious of them all would have been the Proton Preve, claimed as Proton’s first global car. Under the Proton-Geely partnership, several future model names have been registered. Including the X50 and X70, several other names have been registered too like the C50 and S50. The C50 is probably reserved for a hatchback model while the

Remember the Proton Preve Ute that was rumoured to be the Proton Arena 2.0?

Previously, when we reported on the mind-boggling Proton Exora/ Mitsubishi Triton mesh up, we thought we’ve seen it all. But clearly, most of us have forgotten that Malaysia also has a one-off Proton Preve Ute on our roads. The Proton Preve Ute is a one-off custom project that a private owner commissioned Bufori, a company specialising in hand-built vehicles, to build. Based on our research, the Preve Ute arrived at Bufori’s workshop as a standard 4-door Proton Preve sedan but left the doors a 2

假想图:Proton S50 C级轿车,Preve和Waja的继承者?

Proton一直以其轿车而闻名,它们深受马来西亚家庭用户的欢迎,像Proton Saga、Wira、Waja、Perdana和Preve等都是很好的例子。而在这些轿车中,野心最大的当属Proton Preve了,它被称为Proton的首款全球车型。 而在Proton和吉利合作之后,已经有好几款未来的车型注册了商标。除了X50和X70之外,还有其它的名字也被注册了,其中就包括C50和S50。C50很可能会用到掀背车型上,而S50则可能是为轿车车型准备的。 在几乎将每一款吉利车型都进行Proton化渲染之后,Theophilus Chin又决定畅想一下新一代挂着“Proton S50”名号的Proton Preve / Proton Waja。我们必须承认,它看起来和吉利缤瑞十分相似。 Proton Waja和Proton Preve这两款车曾经都是Proton寄予了厚望的C级轿车,但最终它们都在没有后继者的情况下停产了。鉴于S50这个名字已经注册了商标,Proton推出新的C级轿车或许将会成为现实。 这张假想图实际上是基于Ford Focus轿车版渲染的,而车头则来源于Proton X5

Lakaran: Proton S50, platform BMA sama dengan Proton X50, pewaris Preve dan Waja?

Dalam jangkamasa tersebut, kelihatan 2 sedan sedang dirancang untuk pelancaran tahun 2021 dan 2022. Buat masa ini, tiada sebarang khabar angin buat model sedan daripada Proton untuk segmen C dan ke atas.

Is the Geely Binrui (Proton S50) a worthy successor to the Proton Preve?

A couple of years ago, Proton registered several trademarks, including one curiously-named S50, fueling speculations that a Proton Preve replacement model based on the Geely Binrui could happen. The S designation would be logical for Proton to rename their next-generation sedans, as Proton did utilize the S16 name for the Saga BLM in Australia. Although the C-segment sedan market is shrinking, many government fleets still require a C-segment sedan – the police force have resorted to the Honda Ci

Rendered: Proton S50, the C-segment saloon Malaysia deserves?

Although Proton has introduced two SUVs to the market (X50 & X70), interest for a sedan Proton still remains high. Thus, the speculation of an upcoming Proton S50 intrigued many of us. That is quite understandable since Proton has given the people some decent saloons in the past. One that had so much promise was the Proton Preve. The Proton Preve was a C-segment saloon with high ambitions of being a global car. It was good looking, and had styling cues similar to the Honda City and Kia Forte of

Could this 190 PS, 300 Nm Geely Preface be the next Proton sedan?

Recently, images of the production version of the Geely Preface have surfaced, hinting at what could be the next Proton Perdana/Preve.

Used Proton Inspira for RM 20k! This or the Mitsubishi Lancer?

It has been 5 years since Proton has discontinued sales of the Proton Inspira, but demand for the car has yet to wane and finding a good used unit is like looking for a needle in the haystack. But for RM 20,000, should you still get a used Proton Inspira or should you just opt for the Inspira’s donor car, the Mitsubishi Lancer instead? The Proton Inspira has always been an interesting product. It came years after Proton has proudly moved on from just rebadging Mitsubishi vehicles and started pro

Think the Honda City's ad is extreme? This Geely Preface ad compares it to a Porsche Panamera

The Honda City is not the only one who is throwing shade at multiple “competitors”! Geely, too, joined the bandwagon with an ad for its upcoming Geely Preface that calls out its luxury competitors. Geely dropped the ad yesterday across their social media platforms and the ad has since gone viral for its unique twist. The ad aims to show off the Geely Preface’s agility thanks to the popular CMA platform on the mountainous winding roads of China. In the video, a driver dressed in a business suit i
