Review: 2020 Proton Saga 1.3L Premium facelift, true definition of value for money

Proton took the right approach when they launched the 2020 Proton Saga facelift. Offering improved features and drivability at a lower price point for consumers. Their strategy of giving better value for money to the consumers is being rewarded in their sales numbers, with a monthly average of 3,500 cars delivered. The Saga facelift was crucial in helping Proton achieve their 2020 sales target of 100,000 units. Even as archrival, Perodua launched their updated Saga competitor, the price tag is j

Fuel efficiency - Bezza is king, naturally Since its introduction back in 2016, the Perodua Bezza has cemented its fuel efficiency capabilities, thanks to its featherlight body, fuel-sipping engines, and slippery aerodynamics.

Deal breakers: 2019 Proton Saga - Love the car, but its ergonomics needs to be improved

Allow me to begin by saying this isn’t about condemning the 2019 Proton Saga facelift because I genuinely adore it. So much in fact, I have one sitting right at home. At under RM 40k, there are no other cars that pack quite as much value as the Proton Saga. It drives well, has decent refinement, and a bonus would be the touchscreen infotainment system that is slick to use.

Sebab utama Proton Saga belum menerima perancangan model baru

Proton Saga generasi ini (P2-13A) telah berada di pasaran sejak tahun 2016. Untuk kekal berdaya saing dengan Perodua Bezza, Proton telah mengemaskininya pada tahun 2019. Antaranya seperti infotainment sesentuh yang baru dan transmisi automatik 4 kelajuan daripada Hyundai bagi menggantikan transmisi CVT yang terdahulu.

No replacement planned yet for ageing Proton Saga, BMA platform too costly

The current generation Proton Saga, sometimes referred to as the P2-13A Saga, has been on the market since 2016. To keep it ahead of its biggest competitor the Perodua Bezza, Proton gave the A-segment Proton Saga sedan a mid-lifecycle facelift in 2019, adding a new touch screen infotainment, and a new Hyundai-sourced 4-speed automatic replacing the previous car’s lousy CVT, and more importantly, drop its price to be lower than the Bezza.

Pros and Cons: 2020 Proton Saga – Love the value, but fuel economy is poor

The third-generation Proton Saga was introduced back in 2016 and it received its mid-life update in August 2019. Perhaps the biggest improvement done to the Saga was the discontinuation of the Punch-sourced CVT-type automatic transmission, which has been replaced by a Hyundai-sourced four-speed torque converter automatic unit. Previously a B-segment model, Proton has since redesignated the Saga as an A-segment sedan to compete against the Perodua Bezza – the Saga’s primary rival. The Proton Saga

优缺点讲评:2020 Proton Saga——性价比出色,油耗不够理想

第三代Proton Saga于2016年上市,并在2019年8月进行了中期改款升级。 对Saga最大的升级,或许就是淘汰了Punch产的CVT自排变速箱,并换装了一具Hyundai产的4速扭力转换器自排变速箱。 Saga曾经是一款B级车型,但Proton随后将Saga重新定位为A级轿车,直接对标Perodua Bezza——它是Saga的主要竞争对手。 Proton Saga标价在RM 32,800(1.3 Standard MT)到RM 39,800(1.3 Premium AT)之间,价格包含了10%的SST(销售税)。 以下为对2020 Proton Saga优缺点的简短讲评: 优点: 换装了4速自排变速箱 多媒体系统表现优异 驾控性能出色 缺点: 没有ADAS系统 没有无车匙进入和一键启动功能 燃油经济性一般 优点:换装了4速自排变速箱 在Proton Saga上,Punch产的CVT自排变速箱可谓是最致命的缺陷,因为CVT该有的优点它都没有——低速顿挫、高速噪音,并且运转十分粗糙。 不过,在吉利来了之后,一切都变了。 Punch产CVT被淘汰了,取而代之的是一具新的Hyund
