Just launched at the 2007 Motor Expo in Bangkok, Thailand. Will be available in Malaysia next year.
The front end with the redesigned front bumper & grille looks better & sportier than the current one sold elsewhere.
Shares the same dashboard & door panels as the recently launched Persona sedan (That means the addition of a proper glove box, better door handles & power window switch panels.). Hope the quality is better this time.
Most important bit? A new engine is now available, the 1.6 Campro CPS producing 125 hp & 148 Nm. Now, if Proton made a 1.8 version for export markets, would make it an interesting alternative over the Corolla hatch/ Auris, Holden Viva/ Chevrolet Optra, Kia Cerato/ Hyundai i30 & the Nissan Tiida.

On another note Proton attracted a lot of new buyers during the motor show's 2 week run, I mean, a total of 1,000 units!-> http://paultan.org/archives/2007/12/...nd-in-2-weeks/
Now, if this option came with the car...
