Rendered: Next-gen Proton Suprima S imagined, hot hatch potential?

Sporty-looking hatchbacks by Proton include the Proton Satria, Proton Satria Neo, and the Proton Suprima S. While there might be no plans for a successor to the Proton Suprima S soon, photo chopper Theophilus Chin has decided to use the Proton X50’s front end to imagine one. While Theophilus has called it the Proton H50, the result is very reminiscent of the Proton Suprima S. Instead of looking like a totally new car, the rendering looks like a well-done evolution of the turbocharged hatchback.

Proton Suprima S Proton Suprima S yang hadir bersama-sama Proton Preve sebagai sebuah model global. Namun yang demikian, prestasi kereta Proton sebelum itu ternyata mengaburi nilai yang mampu ditawarkan oleh Proton Suprima S justeru menjejaskan penjualan hatchback segmen C ini. Berbeza dengan Proton Preve yang mahu memecahkan dominasi (dan sentimen) sedan segmen C buatan Jepun, Proton Suprima S pula dilihat mahu menyaingi pasaran hatchback conti, antaranya Ford Focus dan Volkswagen Golf.

假想图:下一代Proton Suprima S渲染图,是你心目中的小钢炮吗?

在Proton旗下,造型运动的掀背车有Proton Satria、Proton Satria Neo和Proton Suprima S这么三款。对于Proton Suprima S,Proton暂时还没有开发继承车型的计划。不过别担心,我们的汽车PS达人Theophilus Chin又出手了。他决定以Proton X50的前脸为基础,为大家带来新车的假想图。 尽管Theophilus将其称作Proton H50,但最终的成品看起来却和Proton Suprima S十分相像。假想的渲染图看起来并不像是一款彻头彻尾的新车,反而像是这款涡轮掀背车的强力升级版。 真正的Proton Suprima搭载的是一具1.6升的涡轮增压CamPro引擎(139 PS/205 Nm),匹配一具CVT变速箱。这是一款造型帅气的车子,也发展出了自己的车迷群体。 在很早的时候,这款车也出现过6速手排的版本,但后来却从未投入市场。Proton对Proton Suprima S和Proton Preve给予了厚望,但最终这两款车却相继停产。 从与吉利合作以来,Proton已经引进了两款SUV,即Proton X7

Geely Emgrand GS refreshed, the Proton Suprima Crossover we never had

The Chinese media have released spyshots of the updated Geely Emgrand GS.

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

Proton is easily the first homegrown Malaysian car brand but when it comes to being the people’s choice, it’s obvious that the answer belongs to Perodua.

Owner Review: 2018 Proton Iriz 1.3 CVT - Going a different route when everybody was getting a Myvi?

** This article is the personal experience of a 2018 Proton Iriz 1.3 CVT owner and does not necessarily reflect the views of WapCar. Instagram: @andrengphotography It was two years ago when my mom decided to get herself a new car for daily commutes. She was looking for a hatchback and sedans were out of her list. Probably because she thought a sedan was too lengthy for her? In my opinion, a sedan gives you more boot space just in case you had lots of things to carry. She also wanted a new car to

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

假想图:这辆复活的Proton Tiara能够打败Perodua Axia吗?

Proton是第一个马来西亚国产的汽车品牌,但若要问谁是人民的选择,答案却仍是Perodua。 尽管如此,但如果Proton决定要重新启用早已淘汰的招牌,用自己的这款A级掀背车来挑战Perodua Axia,结果又会是如何呢? 渲染图作者:Theophilus Chin 别担心,这辆Proton Tiara(或者应该说Tiada?)是出自大师Theophilus Chin之手,新一代Honda HR-V的渲染图也是出自他的手下。 从外观上看,它确实有点像被压扁了的Proton Suprima,在尾部又有一点Dacia Sandero或印度Tata Tiago的感觉。 一个有趣的事实是,Tiago一开始的名字叫做Zica,但因为听起来有点像Zika病毒,Tata最终为它改了名字,真是个糟糕的巧合。 渲染图作者:Theophilus Chin 回到这辆A级掀背车,它的前脸有着与Saga相似的头灯和前保险杠,同时还有从X50上借来的中网。 正如名字一样,Tiada只是个幻想。很遗憾,Proton几乎不可能重新复活这款A级掀背车了。 还记得Proton曾经向Perodua发起挑战的那两次尝试吗

Did Geely just confirmed that Proton X50's engine is not the same as Volvo XC40's?

Is the Proton X50's using the same engine as the Volvo XC40? It depends on who are you asking. Proton fans (and sales people) insist that it's the same engine but others say it's similar but not the same. To recap, the Proton X50 rides on Geely’s BMA platform, which is developed in-house by Geely themselves, without Volvo’s input. The Volvo XC40 however, rides on the more sophisticated CMA platform, which is co-developed by both Geely and Volvo, via their Sweden-based CEVT joint-venture company.
