1.4 Executive AT (2015)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 11.7 km/litre (8.5 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 1,000 km/month
    Nice interior, all plastic & fabric is of better quality
    No instrument clutter, all info is presented in simple direct way and fuel & temp meter is in analog which is nice
    Comfortable seat, ample padding to back & thigh, ample legroom until the 3rd row for average Malaysian height (my height is 170cm)
    Having 2-row overhead aircond unit is a godsend, 2nd & 3rd-row passenger will be happy during hot weather.
    2nd-row armrest adding to the comfort
    Ample boot space for light travel even with full (6-7) passenger, hidden compartment under the boot can add to the space.
    The seat can easily fold to accommodate extra space. HUGE space if all backseat folded.
    Smooth and silent engine but revvy in nature.
    Good torque until 100kmh. If you are aggressive to the gas pedal, this car will nonchalantly rev to 4000rpm (max torque output of 130nm) and over.
    Very good NVH, ride is very comfortable
    Door closing with a convincing ‘THUD’ sound which is giving an impression of quality.
    Have the switch for headlamp level adjustment
    Right side signal stick is on the right side which is convenient to use unlike the usual left side of Proton.
    A nudge on the signal stick will light the signal 3 times which is easy to use for changing lane.
    Door can be sticky to close especially the back bonnet door. Need to bang hard to get it closed.
    Beige interior albeit nice looking can be easily dirty. Applying fabric coating protection early on is recommended.
    Infotainment is a bit basic.
    The reflector on the back door (which connect the lamp to the chrome trim) looks like an afterthought job. Proton should make it functional or ditch it all together.
    Only 1 proper cup holder for the cabin side. The bottle holder on the door can be a makeshift cup holder but it’s a bit inconvenient to reach.
    The fog light switch is a bit weird as the switch on the signal stick is for the back while for the front you need to press the switch near the headlamp level adjustment. It should be the other way round.
To Improve
The Suzuki Ertiga on the Indian & Indonesia market comes with all the latest infotainments gadget and even push start button, and proton should apply the same spec for the plus variant.
Add VSC system
Proton should bring the Diesel & Hybrid variant here, it will be selling like a hot cake!
Yes, I would recommend this car

- The Suzuki Ertiga on the Indian & Indonesia market comes with all the latest infotainments gadget and even push start button, why can’t Proton bring that over?
- VSC is a must in current generation vehicle. Why Proton can’t implement on this car?
- Proton should bring the Diesel & Hybrid variant here, it will be selling like a hot cake!

1.4 Executive Plus AT (2015)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
RON95, Mileage: 600 km/month
    Had mine for One and a half months.
    For the price and what it is intended for, I would say it offers Good value for money.
    The steering feel could be better. Mine does not self centre properly, I have to centre it myself for the last quarter turn. Is it just mine or is it the same for all Ertigas?
    I understand it is EPS and we cannot compare with hydraulic power steering but I am comparing it with EPS from other car makes which are more positive and confidence inspiring.
To Improve
Improve the steering feel.

1.4 Executive MT (2015)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 16.4 km/litre (6.1 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 2,000 km/month
    It's value for money. 59K for a rebadge Japanese car.
    It's so fuel saving, I could easily get 16.4km/L in 100% city drive with heavy foot around 90~100kmh.
    If I maintain the speed below 70kmh, it could get 19.4km/L or 21.1km/L in the City!
    See the #197 in forum https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/4147792/all
    Door and seat easy to get dirty.
    Sometimes noise coming from the railings of second row seats.
To Improve
Should have darken color for the seats.

1.4 Executive Plus AT (2015)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 14.5 km/litre (6.9 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 2,000 km/month
    Generally, the car is smooth to drive, braking is easy, similar to small car like Suzuki Swift. This upholds Suzuki standard since Proton Ertiga is a rebadged Suzuki Ertiga with only minor changes made such as emblem, tail light and chrome bar.
    - Very respectable fuel efficiency. I drive the car to work, about 40km one way with average speed of 30km/h. Therefore 14.5km/l is a good fuel consumption.
    - Good legroom for its size for all 3 rows.
    - Comfortable seats.
    - Rear view mirror is not glaring during night even though it is not equipped with auto on/off feature.
    - Car does not feel underpowered in most circumstances.
    - Aircond is very efficient and cold, suitable for Malaysian weather. Dedicated a/c for 2nd & 3rd row passengers helps keep passengers comfortable
    - Quiet engine
    - Large windows make passengers feel more roomy and less claustrophobic
    - Large front row window and side window makes driving easy and less blindspots
    - noise if the 2nd row seat belt is not properly secured
    - need strong effort to close door properly
    - lack of arm rest for driver and front passenger
To Improve
More features to be made on offer such as leather seat, reverse camera, push/start button, keyless entry (which is already available for Swift since long time ago)
Yes, I would recommend this car
