Proton is Malaysia's automotive contribution to the international market, founded in 1983 with no competition until 10 years later. It wasn't until 1995 when the Proton Persona was launched in Australia, where it is still on sale today. This has grown to the six cars available to the Australian market ranging between sedans, hatches and a pick-up. Proton is a brand on the move and with the launch of the S16, it aims to capture younger buyers looking for their first car.

2013 Proton Prevé GX Review

Fixed price servicing at 15,000km intervals with a 5 year/175,000km warranty and a purchase price under $14,000 my GX CVT Prevé is affordable. With most components sourced from BOSCH such as timing belt, filters, discs, pads etc it is a mainstream vehicle. The CVT transmission is from Punch International who supply Holden commodore autos, and are likely to be Commodore's new owner...

2014 Proton Exora Gxr Review

I'm in the final stages of a lease of this car so not an actual owner. I decided to lease this after being impressed with the amount of room it has with both rear rows folded down, nice and flat. Never seen an official figure but it must be well over 2000 litres of space for a weekend trip to Bunnings. It has been generally comfortable, reliable, and a great everyday drive...

2013 PROTON PREVE GX Review

I think people are too caught up with performance they can't use. Who has confirmed their 0-100 times? If you do then you just thrashed the daylights out of your machine. As far as style, no worse than the squashed snake look that everyone copies, even the newest toyota. You need a finder's guide to see what car you are looking at...

2011 PROTON S16 Review

With the trade on my car, I paid $7000 for this Proton S16 GX. $7000, with 17 kilometres on the clock, 12 months registration, insurance and that warranty. If you need a cheap car that is worry free for three years, then this is the car for you. Yes, the only heart its going to win is yours but in saying that, you are the only person who is in the car the most...
