3 out of 5 3.0

Proton's largest model is also the first to be designed and built in-house by the Malaysian firm. Even so, Lotus (part-owned by Proton) has given them more than a helping hand with the ride and handling, which are very good. The 1.6 engine is frugal but unrefined, so needs to be worked to get the most from it.
