Proton Persona was launced on 16 August 2007. Finally , Proton had produced an acceptable CAR. Built from the fundamentals and architecture of Proton GEN2 with an extension of the car boot . Other than the tail lamps, the entire car from the B-pillar onwards has been reworked. The new car is 167mm longer than the Proton GEN2, and 12mm longer than the Proton Waja. The boot is a respectable 430 liters in size, which is larger than the Toyota Vios at 400 liters. It also features a lock, something that was missing on the Proton GEN2. A 60:40 split rear bench folds flat in case you need more space.

Rear headroom has been improved by 43mm over the GEN2 with a redesigned roof curve at the rear. It now measures at 980mm, compared to 950mm in the Vios and 970mm in the City!

Whether looking for a luxury car or planning for SUV you can always turn to banks for funding. You can select from range of low cost loans to fund your finances. Some car dealers can also help you in getting cheapest loans in the town.

Priced at RM40K for the low end, I discarded my Viva booking (at the same price tag) and go for the new 'high-quality' Malaysian made Persona.
