– More affordably priced with the same engine performance
KUALA LUMPUR, 6 December 2014 —— PROTON Holdings Berhad (PROTON) today unveiled and introduced its Proton Suprima S Standard which is priced as low as RM69,438.
Powered by PROTON’s 1.6-litre Turbo engine and mated with PROTON’s 7-speed ProTronic CVT, the Suprima S Standard delivers power and torque equivalent to a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine. The 1.6L power produces 140PS at 5000rpm, and with a maximum torque of 205Nm from 2000 to 4000rpm while its driving dynamics is enhanced with Lotus Ride and Handling.
The Lotus Ride and Handling developed exclusively for the Suprima S range give it exceptional dynamics. Whether it’s tackling the city streets or a winding country road, the agile chassis of the Proton Suprima S Standard delivers an incomparable driving experience and enjoyment behind the wheel every time.
“The introduction of the Suprima S Standard is a reflection of PROTON’s commitment to our customers in not just meeting their demands, but to continue to produce a variety of products that offer driving enjoyment and satisfaction,” said Dato’ Abdul Harith.
Occupant protection and safety is primary with PROTON, and it starts with the Reinforced Safety Structure. Just like the Premium and Executive variants of the Suprima S launched in 2013, the bodyshell is manufactured using an advanced hot press forming process, giving it ultra high tensile strength to make it more capable of absorbing impact force and at the same time lighter weight, which aids better fuel consumption.
Dato’ Abdul Harith added that PROTON had always been engaged in planning and undertaking means and ways to reduce cost whilst improving quality of its vehicles. The introduction of the Suprima S Standard is part of PROTON’s effort to continuously provide a better value-for-money, and affordable cars to Malaysians.
The Suprima S Standard, among others is fitted with 16-inch alloy wheels, 2-DIN radio with CD player and MP3 with USB connection without touchscreen, power steering, manual side mirror control, side turn signal integrated with side mirror and dual airbag.
The model is available in five colours; Tranquility Black, Solid White, Genetic Silver, Atlantic Blue and Fire Red. The Suprima S Standard comes with a five-year or 150,000km manufacturing warranty (whichever comes first).
The booking fee for the Suprima S Standard is RM300, and customers can view the car today onwards at all PROTON showrooms in the Peninsular. For customers in East Malaysia, the new variant will be made available at showrooms from 18 December 2014.
