Proton is a Malaysian car manufacturer which set up shop in 1983 on the orders of the then Malaysian Prime Minister, whose aim was for the country to build its own national car. Today Proton exports to more than 50 countries worldwide including the UK, where it has been selling vehicles since 2009.
One of the most popular Proton models currently sold in the UK is the Gen-2, a family saloon which also comes in an ‘Ecologic’ dual-fuel variant. This gives you the option to run the car on LPG, which will save you money on fuel costs. The other main current models on offer are the Savvy, an inexpensive compact city car, and the Satria Neo, a 3 door supermini.
Proton’s partnership with Lotus engineering has led to improved steering and cornering; the Gen-2 in particular gains plaudits from drivers for its comfortable ride. However, in general Proton drivers frequently report noisy engines, as well as bemoaning the interior’s rather cheap look and feel.
About the Proton Satria Neo
Proton’s model in the competitive supermini market is a good-looking vehicle which drivers rate for its decent handling and grip. However, the Satria Neo is let down by a relative lack of space and the fact that the manufacturer’s price has compromised elements of the trim and styling. It is a fairly inexpensive car to buy, although you do need to be aware that its service intervals are relatively short.
Common Problems with Proton
This Malaysian manufacturer has a reputation for reliability, and Proton cars are generally deemed to be mechanically sound. If it’s important that your vehicle is cheap and reliable, then generally speaking you shouldn’t be disappointed with Proton. However, like all cars they break down sometimes, and when it does check out Book My Garage for a local trusted garage who can get you back on the road in no time.
