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.Since the current Saga is basically a heavily modified

New Proton Saga – Could This Be A Better Car Than The Perodua Bezza?

The Proton Saga is Proton’s bread and butter model, a model that has been (and still is) the default first car option for many car buyers. That quickly changed when Perodua introduced its first-ever sedan, the Bezza, back in 2016. Car buyers now have a new alternative to the evergreen Saga.The third generation Saga was introduced just two months after Perodua unveiled the Bezza, giving its core model a much-needed upgrade. Earlier this week, Proton launched the new Saga, which is

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improvement done to the Saga was the discontinuation of the Punch-sourced CVT-type automatic transmission, which has been replaced by a Hyundai-sourced four-speed torque converter automatic unit.Previously a B-segment model, Proton has since redesignated the Saga as an A-segment sedan to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 Pr

Evolution of the Proton Saga in 35 years  - The pride of Malaysia or wasted potential?

Proton was one of the few carmakers to emerge from the 80s (coincidentally, Geely was also part of that small batch). The first car to bear the Proton name was the Proton Saga. Based on the Mitsubishi Lancer Fiore, the Saga was a big deal for Malaysia when it first came to fruition in 1985.Thirty five years later, the Saga remains highly relevant. The compact saloon is affordable and perfect for young families. It is a worthy successor to the “Saga” name. Having evolved over 35

Perodua Kancil vs Proton Saga – Which is the original Malaysian people’s car?

Okay, readers, this has been rattling around my head for the past week. As Malaysians, it is our sworn duty to protect and support all things Malaysian.

Is it true that the Proton Saga is cheaper to maintain than a Perodua Bezza? The answer is not that simple.

Both the Perodua Bezza and Proton Saga are Malaysia’s cheapest sedans, but which one is cheaper to maintain?Table is not a full representation of actual cost because Proton has parked some necessary maintenance jobs as optional, and doesn't reveal its price. Perodua however, includes all these optional jobs under the ProCare list.If you were to make a simple comparison based Proton's quoted prices for its maintenance plan, the Saga's total maintenance cost over a 5-year/100,000

Do you know how much are you losing on your car every month? GoCar Subs has a message for you

The actual cost of owning a car is a lot higher than just your monthly instalments, and we’re not talking about insurance or maintenance, itself already a big chunk of a car’s total ownership cost.Beyond maintenance, depreciation is the biggest ‘cost’ for a car owner. However, very few see it that way because it’s not something that you feel until you have to sell your car. It’s like losing money on stocks; it’s paper loss until you actually sell it, whi
