    1.Space is terrific.
    All seats for me are spacious and comfortable
    Pilot seat is more spacious than Vellfire.
    2. Handling really superb
    3. thx for the soft turbo, doesn't feel underpowered.
    4. value for money
    1. hope the och last as it claims in manual
    2. Petrol can be expensive for a town drive.
    3. Resale value ...but I wouldn't sell mine. Keep till it becomes relic.
To Improve
Better use normal AT. Rather than CVT.
Yes, I would recommend this car

1.6 Executive CVT (2021)
Bought new, Owned for 8 Years
Fuel Economy: 120000.0 km/litre (0.0 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 1,500 km/month
    Mine is 2016 Exora Bold Turbo Executive CVT, metallic, 16inch steel rim, bought new and drive for 7 years.

    Handling : sapu corner like no other, even the body is big and tall, no other MPV can do the same. Best DNA pass down from Lotus and Mitsubishi.

    Space : big and wide, went IKEA bought and stuffed in a cabinet with my 3 family members together. 7 seats only used occasionally but when you need it, it gets the job done.

    Air con : super cool, one of Protons best known for. Mostly use 1st gear fan, 3rd gear fan at afternoon. Rear aircon blower also a bless for kids.

    Reverse camera : on the rearview mirror, quite good quality, only struggle in very low light environment.

    Infotainment is outdated CD player but luckily with AUX, bought Bluetooth connection kit online and can stream music from my phone, nice 4 speakers!

    Price : cheap to buy such a spacious car.
    CVT : first 2 years the CVT jerky when I stepped on throttle ready to break out from the traffic, but later it happened less, may be SC did some reprogramming? No idea. Mine also has SAT which can mimic 6-speed gearbox, best use when downhill at Getting, activated it and no need to drag with L gear but still maintain manageable speed like 3rd gear.

    Power windows : rear passenger side window seems loosen after 6 years, keep it close and don't bother it, still can't beat my previous 6 years Saga BLM that power windows never failed.

    3rd row seat nylon puller (pull to lay down 3rd roll seat) literally broken after 2 years, replace with a cable tie XD.

    Steel rim caps fell on the road and lost them just in less then 3 month, bought replacement from Taobao (so many variant to choose) and wala!!

    Fuel consumption quite bad in city, good in highway. Pumping Ron95 average RM90+ last for 5 days.

    The 4 doors have some weird noise even after spraying WD40 in every joint.

    Maintenance a bit costly. The key very pointy, hate the design.

    Air con switch for switching air blowing position broken, fixed it but it will randomly switch position when driving on bumpy road XD.

    Fan sensor problem caused engine overheat and almost burn gasket, cost 5k to repair >_<. OCH replaced twice.
To Improve
Fuel efficiency but heard Campro will be obsolete, so forget it.

Punch CVT can be better.

Infotainment system need to update.

Some minor quality issue but I can forget it because of the cheap price.
Yes, I would recommend this car
