Cheap to buy, decent rear passenger room
Poor build quality, unrefined, coarse engines, slow performance, dated cabin design
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.
