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.

    Review: Proton Persona - Punching Above Its Weight, Mostly...

    It's comfortable enough. The part-leather upholstery never felt squishy or too hot to sit in even after being parked for more than two hours under our scorching heat. Over long distances in excess of three hours, you might start to feel a little uncomfortable but that's more than can be said for the Proton X50, it's lack of thigh support had me bum aching within an hour. Rear occupant room is wide, airy and perfect for two. Generally in almost any sedan, regardless of price, you're most comfortable with two in the rear, sure you could fit three but you are going to feel a little squished over long drives. Its 510-litre boot space will carry your scooter, two luggage bags, tennis bag and pet dog with ease. The 7-inch infotainment touchscreen unit was easy to maneuver and use. Connecting my phone via Bluetooth took all of 30 seconds. The sound emanating from the four speakers was clear even turned up loud, there was no 'cracking' of the speakers nor did it sound tinny. Again, more than adequate for us non-audiophiles who just like streaming their own music of choice while on the road. All throughout my time with the Persona, my biggest gripe was the sound that permeated the cabin at highway speeds but hey turn up the volume and 'whoosh' it disappears. There really is nothing else that I found that annoyed or bugged me about this little B-segment sedan from Proto

    Review: New Proton Persona 1.6 Premium CVT – Building Value Where It Matters

    On the outside, the facelifted Persona now comes with an updated front fascia featuring the 'Ethereal Bow' front grille, similar to what is found on the X70 SUV. Further down, new LED DRLs and a restyled front bumper help give the Persona a fresher look. The same treatment has been carried on the rear, with a new rear bumper and bootlid spoiler. The “Proton” script is applied across the boot lid trim in the same manner of the Iriz.

    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.

improve budget car design

Malaysians have very limited options with regard to car choices that dont break the bank. Look at countries like India and Thailand, creating solutions for all. Things must change. More efficient engines are needed, better exterior appearance and more options must be introduced. - Less
