    Roomy
    Good torque and acceleration
    Nice exterior design
    EBD, ABS
    Auto- Cruise
    Flat -fold back seat.. easy to move big things..

    Fuel sucker
    Cheap and tacky interior plastics
    Claim leather seat by proton , but actually semi-leather only
    Cheap and easy to broke part such ABS sensor and radiator.... and more
    No ISOFIX for baby/children seat to attach... BIG shame for family MPV

Wai Tsung Victor
Exora 1.6 Standard MT (2009)
Bought new, Owned for 5 Years
Fuel Economy: 11.4 km/litre (8.8 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 900 km/month
    Rates a STAR as it LORDs over any other vehicle in its price range in terms of leg space and head room.
    Though not a powerful as a ROCKET it is nimble as a RACCOON for its size.
    It has a certain appeal being sleek like GAMORA
    The seats are comfortable enough for one to grow and keep root in like GROOT
    So far it has been as reliable as GROOT saying "I AM GROOT" every time you see him.
    The lack of power (Non-turbo) is like DRAX the DESTROYER trying to run up Genting after eating 15 pizzas!
    On the flip side the lack of soundproofing makes hearing GROOT constantly repeating "I AM GROOT" irritating
    Similarly though with looks like GAMORA one can't help wonder the dangers that she might keep due to lack of safety measures. This is especially with the middle row middle seatbelt's quality.
To Improve
Additional power and strength of structure will allow it to destroy the opposition
NVH could be improved so THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY can go about their mission with better stealth (and make ROCKET RACCOON less irritated)
Yes, I would recommend this car

Bought new, Owned for 3 Years
Fuel Economy: 10.0 km/litre (10.0 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 1,500 km/month
    - the CFE engine does it jobs. Adequate power when needed. Even with loads.

    - has important features (for me at least!). Bluetooth connectivity, DVD player, auto-cruise, folding wing-mirror, reverse camera.
    - FC actually comparable with my previous 2005 Waja (not proven though, it just personal feeling).
    - engine sound
    - too many hard plastic
To Improve

Exora Bold 1.6 Premium CVT (2011)
Bought new, Owned for 3 Years
Fuel Economy: 7.1 km/litre (14.0 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 730 km/month
    - Great balance of handling / ride
    - Good acceleration despite weight (300kg more than a Perodua Alza) - better than its immediate rivals
    - Smooth acceleration (CVT)
    - Stable at highway speeds
    - Bluetooth integration with sound system with steering wheel controls
    - Spacious interior (great for IKEA runs)
    - Good air-con with multiple vents
    - Cruise control
    - High petrol consumption (14L/100km) with mainly city driving dropping to 10L/100km with mixed highway driving
    - CVT whine at low speeds (<50km/h)
    - Loud engine cooling fan at idle
    - Slight jerkiness in stop-start conditions - due to the CVT single electronic clutch
    - DVD / USB player for passengers has very limited codec compatibility
    - Poor QC on initial batch of Exora Bold CFE (multiple visits to the service centre to fix)
    - Lacks stability control and side airbags
To Improve
- Improve fuel consumption
- Update to a better CVT (Nissan's latest CVTs are much better)
- Quieter fan to cool the engine at idle
- Safety features: ISOFIX points, stability control and side airbags
- 6 airbags really is the minimum these days
- Day-time running lights
- Better build quality materials for interior (e.g. dashboard)
- Sliding 2nd row seats would improve versatility and comfort of occupants
Yes, I would recommend this car

    Horrible service. The car break down more than the 7 years old citra that it replace. Service Centre didn't bother to return call even after you leave message for 2 weeks. Report to Proton Facebook, promise to call but it is still an empty promise after like 1 month. Gearbox noisy.
