New Proton Car – Expected in 2014
A new proton compact car is expected to be launched in 2014. We think its an effort by Proton to create compact cars to save environment. An with the tough economy we are in, it does makes sense to drive a compact care that would save you money, although the best way is to take the public transport!
Anyway for the new proton car, Proton did hold a competition for the public to get the best name for the new compact car. As of now, we don’t know what the name will be but lets see how creative Malaysians can be in naming a compact car. The names will have to be in Bahasa Malaysia though, so its interesting enough to see what turns out. Some comments on the internet has already suggested ‘Proton Rosmah’ which is hilarious to think about. No pun intended.
How Big is this New Proton Car?
We have news that this car would be slightly bigger that Perodua’s Kancil and Kelisa. With that size we hope that quality would be good and the care would last, but we wouldn’t know without trying it will we?
Proton has never made any compact cars before and to be really honest, some of their smaller cars like the Proton Saga has quite a cheap build. Drive the car in rain and you’ll know what we mean. It’s going to be noisy as heck. While the compact car is made to be cost efficient, we hope that the car would have some quality build as well.
New Cars for 2014
We’re not even through 2013 yet but do you think the Proton Compact car would make it for the top selling cars for 2014? The proton suprima s was quite a feat and it was launched quite successfully. No complains yet except for the high selling price but we’re still anticipating the sales for the car.
What do you think? Would the new proton suprima s or the new proton compact car make it for top sales?
