Proton recently picked up the Compact Sedan of the Year award for its latest generation Proton Saga. The acolade was awarded to the manufacturer by Drive Safe & Fast and Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad.
Speaking of the award, Chief Executive Officer of Proton, Dato’ Ahmad Fuaad Kenali said, “We are truly humbled and very pleased with this recognition. The new Saga has come a long way since its introduction in 1985 as a lot of improvements, enhancements and refinements have gone into the making of the new Saga. The new Saga now has a quieter cabin due to the reduction of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), a more stylish design, practicality, safety, convenience and comfort. It is a culmination of the tireless efforts by our team in Proton to give the best value to our customers.”
Prices for the latest Saga range from RM36,800 for the base model car and goes up to RM45,800 for the top of the range Premium 1.3L. When in full spec trim, the Saga comes equipped with advanced safety features such as the ESC, ABS, EBD, traction control, brake assist, hill-hold assist, airbags, ISOFIX and top-tether as well as with all-round sensors.
Apart from this honour, the Saga picked up two other awards in 2016, which are The Rising Star by ASEAN NCAP and Value for Money Car Award by Malaysia Car of the Year.
