    Resale is the single biggest issue with cars like Proton. People haven't bought them fearing that they might lose money very quickly. Hence, there aren't too many Protons running on our roads, so not a lot can be said about their reliability or performance.

    It has been introduced by a company which has got a very bad reputation in Such Market. They roll out a car and then close it

    I have seen 2 protons till now in Lahore..

    One was a Dark Shiny Rust Proton SAGA and i love the looks
    Second one was a Shiny black Proton SAGA and i loved the looks of this too..

    Dont know of its preformance..It is a malaysian made car and is based on Mitsubishi Lancer 1987-88 generation.

    How much does it costs in Pakistan?

    Cheers

    its specifications r much better than saloon and civic which r largest selling brands in pakistan

    and their styles (looks) r awsome too

    they need to revise their lineup... saga looks way out dated, they should introduce the new saga (as they have in malaysia), Gen2 sedan should be launched instead of the 9 lac hatch we have here, Impian is ok but WIRA is something they need to look at seriously
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    though its price is not so much comparing with other cars of its range but due to lack of name in the international market it is very unpopular among the people of pakistan

    performance wise they are okay, but anything other than honda/ toyota/ suzuki will get a hard time selling here.. even chevrolet are still struggling, forget about proton
