Proton Saga Price Increased With a Twist
As you all know, the Season 2 of Car Price Hikes 2022 is now streaming in Pakistan. The fourth episode is out featuring Proton. Unlike other stars of the show (other car companies), Proton has put its own twist on the price hike thing. The company has announced two price jumps for its sedan, Proton Saga, but with different timelines.
New Prices of Proton Saga
Proton has increased the prices of base and mid Saga variants by Rs. 200,000. However, the price will go up by 50% i.e., Rs. 100,000 for bookings till the 10th of May. After that, the price will go up by 100% i.e., Rs. 200,000.
The price of top Proton Saga variant has increased by Rs. 220,000. On the same lines as the other two variants, the top variant’s price will go up by 50% i.e., Rs. 110,000 for bookings till the 10th of May. After that, the price will go up by 100% i.e., Rs. 220,000.
- The new price of Proton Saga Standard Manual variant is Rs. 2,249,000. After the 10th of May, the price will become Rs. 2,349,000.
- The new price of Proton Saga Standard Automatic variant is Rs. 2,399,000. After the 10th of May, the mid variant’s price will become Rs. 2,499,000.
- The new price of Proton Saga ACE Automatic variant is Rs. 2,509,000. After the 10th of May, the top variant’s price will become Rs. 2,519,000.
With that, we can cross four companies off the list of car price hike, Kia, Changan, Prince DFSK, and Proton. Now let’s wait for the others (Toyota, Suzuki, MG, Haval, BAIC, and Hyundai) to take their turns and be a part of the show.
Does Proton’s twisted price increase make sense or not? What do you think about Saga’s huge price jump? Would you recommend anyone to buy the sedan before the prices go even higher? Let us know in the comments.
I would not recommend Saga to anyone anyways, its parts are expensive and not available easily and on top of that it is not an easy to sell car because it has not earned a name of market car yet.
It is important to mention, booking a Proton Saga and delivery will be done for July, it means only 3 months to wait, according to Proton Al Haj latest announcement.
Wich is quiet good.
