It’s finally here! The new Proton Persona makes its official launch debut today, the second entry in a four-model resurgence for the national carmaker that began with the new Perdana.

By now you would have realised that the 2016 Proton Persona is the star of the day, with us bringing you a live stream of the official launch this morning, and the subseque...
So here we are again – and this time it has to work. After the opening salvo that was the Proton Perdana, it’s now up to the two upcoming cars, the Persona and Saga, to show what Proton is really capable of.
Got lucky to purchase a used Premium variant with low mileage.
Good things about this car :
1- Stable handling. Can take corners confidently even at 100km/h. But, going downhill, still a bit scared (maybe because I am not an expert driver.)
2- Confidently overtaking cars and big vehicles.
3 - Fuel consumption is ok. But still cannot beat Perodua.
4 - Very good suspension. Feels buttery driving in 'kampung' roads.
5 - The features (only Premium variant) are very satisfying to have.
The buts :
1- Jerky at taxiing speed (20-30km/h).
2- Sometimes, lack the agility required to move around heavy traffics. (MyVi is better in this aspect.)
3- I don't know why, but it seems there are inconsistencies around the edge of the exterior body. There are difference in gap between the metal alley on both sides of my tail lamps.
4 - The metal fuel cap is such a pain! I tried opened it during my first day of refuelling and it scratched my car's body! Damn tight!
1- Hope the next generation Persona will no longer have any jerky issues, and if Proton have resolved the problem anywhere near the future, hope mine can be rectified too.
2 - There seems to be some issues with the quality of the exterior built. But for me, that's inevitable. I am glad that my unit doesn't have rattling issues.
3 - Very hopeful that this Persona model line wont be discontinued. (Considering Geely's influence). Very good and satisfying car. Just need better consumer experience improvement.
