Closer Look At What's New With The New Proton Saga

Proton has just introduced the new Saga, updating the affordable sedan that has been around since 2016 with some much-needed improvements. Let’s take a look at what has been improved on the new Saga. For starters, the front grille now features Proton’s ‘Infinite Weave’ motif, first found on the X70. The new Saga is the fourth model after the X70, Iriz, and Persona to don the new grille. Apart from the ‘Infinite Weave’ front grille, the new Saga also features a chrome strip that connects both hea

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? 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 km period is cheaper than the Bezza by about RM 140. The Perodua Bezza will cost RM 3,149 to maintain while the Proton Saga costs a slightly cheaper RM 3,008. That's a neglibible difference over a five-year/100,000 km period. However, keep

Extending SST cut to June 2021 - good news for Proton, not so good for Perodua

Yesterday’s sudden announcement by the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to extend sales tax (SST) exemption for new locally-assembled (CKD) cars, and SST discount for imported (CBU) new and reconditioned cars, to 30-June 2021 was quite unexpected. The abrupt U-turn in decision came just six days after the Ministry’s earlier confirmation that the SST exemption/discount will end as planned on 31-December 2020, and that appeals by the Malaysia Automotive Association (MAA) to extend the exemption/discount

Back in November 2020, an image of a stitched “R3 limited edition” logo was leaked hinting it a possible R3 car – either the Proton Iriz R3 or the Proton Saga R3. In celebration of 35 years of the Proton Saga, there was a limited run of the Proton Saga Anniversary Edition. The response was overwhelming as all 1,100 units of the car were sold out in 5 days.

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.

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
