Overview

The second-generation Proton Persona is a sedan that shares its underpinnings with Iriz hatchback. It is offered here in four variants, with a starting price of RM44,831 for the base 1.6 Standard Manual. On the other hand, the range topping Premium CVT retails for RM57,473. 

The Persona lineup is powered by the same 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated VVT engine offered in the Iriz hatchback, which outputs 107 bhp at 5,750 rpm and 150 Nm of torque at 4,000r pm.

Although two transmissions are available to choose from, the five-speed manual is only available in the standard grade. CVT-type automatic is available in all grades. According to the national carmaker, the manual and CVT-type automatic variants of the Persona are able to return a fuel consumption figure of 5.6- and 6.1-litres per 100km respectively. This sedan is also the first Proton model to be offered with an ECO Driving Indicator. 

Standard features include 15-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, electronic stability control (ESC), hill start assist, electric headlamp leveling and front airbags. 

The Executive variant adds front fog lamps, split-folding rear seats, a better audio system with 4-speakers and steering wheel switches, rear USB port chargers, a rear spoiler and a trunk release switch on the key fob.

The Premium variant comes fitted with a touch screen display audio that also displays the reverse camera, 6 airbags, leather seat coverings and smart key entry with push start button.     

The basic warranty coverage for Proton vehicles is 5 years or 150,000-kilometre mileage, whichever occurs first.

    2016 Proton Persona – Smaller in Size, Bigger in Aspirations

    The Persona has been one of Proton’s most successful models in recent memory. At a time when Proton’s reputation was taking a beating and bleeding market share, the Persona in 2007 was the model that successfully stemmed the decline and helped atone for the series of less-than-successful hatchback models that came before, namely the Gen.2, Satria Neo, and Savvy.

So far so good. Still too early to criticise. Enjoyable experience. Very good as a first car with luggage in mind.

Budget <RM60K for a new B-segment sedan?

Persona 2nd gen (launched in 2016) Purchased new in 2018 Proton Persona 1.6 CVT Premium Pros (Strengths): 1. Ride & handling: For price below RM60k, delivers best steering feel for an EPS (not numb like certain competitors), bodyrolls are expected especially above highway speeds because of its higher center of gravity. But in windy roads, the car feels really stable at turn-in, steering feel is not too light, brakes are relatively okay, but the pedal feel initially abit soft. Suspension soaks speedbumps with minimal rebound rate (rear dampers abit soft). Town driving is nice with minimal steering effort. Go test drive it, driving confidence ada, just my personal opinion. 2. Safety: Dual front airbags, ABS, EBD & ESC are standard equipments for all variants. Specs are specs, but when you are driving, please drive sanely. No point having 100airbags if you drive dangerously and end up in an accident. Safety first! 3. Space: Biggest usable boot volume for the price, best headroom for the price (1.9m adults can sit without their heads touching the roof), comfortable supportive front seats, great rear seats' reclined-angle (many passengers praised this). 4. Others: PROTON AIRCOND LO!!! hahaha... Cold wehhhh especially in early morning, ok ok sound system. Cons (Weaknesses) 1. Transmission refinement: Yes yes... I know. Proton's Punch CVT. The jerkiness is apparent at traffic crawls below 30km/h, stop n go conditions the throttle response is not tally with the gearbox (delay abit). But service center did update & reset the TCU (ECU stuffs), improving the throttle response & reducing the delay. Highway cruising around 110km/h, the rpm is at approx. 3000rpm, noise is on the louder side since other CVT competitors can deliver less than 2000rpm. 2. Space: wait a minute... I thought space is a pro. In this case, rear legroom is the main weakness. It is not cramped but if compared to other competitors, it feels the tightest back there if the front seats are pushed quite far behind. Go try it for yourself but it's sufficient for average adults (less than 1.8m tall). 3. Design: this one many people said the new Persona is bulky, ugly. But for me, memang the proportions memang lari sikit here and there. But once sit inside, the interior design not too bad la. Design is subjective also, don't judge a book by its cover? 4.Others: NVH level... Wind noise quite loud above highway speed, tyre roar too during highway cruise (can try replacing with better tyres), abit rattling noise in the dashboard (creaks) so better turn the music volume up? Haha... Fuel usage: errrm.... If you are a hypermiler, then confirm can drive more than 20km/l. But as for me, I'm just an average working person, this car serves as a workhouse, carrying friends and family, balik kampung trips once while. Throughout one year+, city driving (jam alot): average 10-12km/l, highway cruising average 14-17km/l. Differs for everyone, since some people drive like F&F, some drive delicately. In short, below RM60K, if really want a new car, a not very compact sedan, that can ferry 5 with relatively good comfort level, with huge boot, decent performance & handling (really not that bad la), cannot complain so much anymore, for the budget, then the new Persona 1.6 is the option. Cheers peeps!!!

Details of the car

The car is awesome and worth with the price, but i am hopefully proton can resolve the dashboard noise issue. It was suspected its cause by the structure design in the dashboard, even sc is not able to solve it properly. Furthermore, i found there are few units i met having noise from the gear box while the gear is in position N. Other than this detail issue it is a good car
