Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 38 - 42 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Proton owners tend to hang onto their cars for a long time which spreads the depreciation (likely to be slightly worse than most other small cars). It's better to make the most of the extra-long mechanical warranty and keep it for a while. The servicing intervals are set at a respectable 12,000 miles. Fuel consumption figures are reasonable as is the insurance.

Groups 6 and 7 will be a big improvement for owners of the previous Satria GTI.

The Satria Neo isn't an especially environmentally friendly choice with emissions of 157g/km of CO2 for manual cars and 177g/km for automatics. Other small cars offer better power and performance than the Satria Neo but with lower emissions. Economy is 43mpg for manuals and 38mpg for autos.

Proton tends to do quite well in reliability surveys, and the company has enough faith in the Satria Neo to back it up with an impressive six-year warranty on the engine and gearbox.
