Close up: Proton Inspira…

Today, 10 November, was the launch of the Proton Inspira.  I dropped by this evening to one of the Petaling Jaya Dealer.  There are 3 models to choose from, they are:

i) 1.8E Manual  (RM78,999 OTR)
ii)1.8E CVT (RM84,999 OTR)
iii) 2.0P CVT+Paddle shift (RM91,999 OTR)

The above price includes Insurance and metallic paint.

Here are the colour choices:

My Opinion: A Bargain, especially the 2.0 Premium version.  It has Dual Airbags, ABS+EBD+BA, Auto Air Cond, Paddle shift, Cruise Control, GPS Navigator, Leather Seats, Auto Light and Rain Sensor, ISOFIX Mount, Bodykits and the lists goes on.  The only drawbacks were: UGLY Alloy rims and HARD Plastics on the Dashboard.

Waiting lists 3 months for the 2.0 model, 1 month for 1.8 as at 10 November 1800hrs.  Booked by 15 November interest RATE 3.5% only.  Booked by 30 November, 2 years free maintenance.

Well there’s a saying a picture’s worth 1000 words, here are the pictures:

 1.8 variants have Normal Aircond.  The 2.0 Premium have “Automatic Climate Control.

 CROWDED!!!  PJ State Dealer Showroom (Seri Mestika Sdn Bhd).

 Disappointed Dashboard plastics.  HARD and Not pleasant to touch.
