Yesterday, Proton Holdings Berhad unveiled a new Saga variant – Saga FLX SE. The new Saga FLX SE is powered by a 1.6 litre Campro IAFM engine and available only with CVT automatic transmission, the Saga FLX SE is priced from RM49,449 in Peninsular Malaysia. The new Saga FLX will be at all PROTON showrooms for view from 1 December 2011.
According to Proton officially, the combination of the 1.6-litre Campro IAFM engine with the CVT automatic transmission delivers better torque, four percent better acceleration, and reduces fuel consumption by an additional 4% compared to the current 1.6-litre Saga.
“The introduction of the Saga FLX SE effectively expands the range of the Saga model by providing customers with a vehicle that has a higher engine capacity while at the same time, reaffirming the Saga as the people’s car given its exceptional affordability and value for money attributes that include better fuel economy, greater performance, and superior ride and handling characteristics,” said PROTON Holdings Berhad Group Managing Director Dato’ Sri Haji Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir.
Dato’ Sri Haji Syed Zainal Abidin added that the Saga FLX SE is also a model that was designed to appeal to the younger generation of car buyers who now have the option of owning an entry-level vehicle which offered not only affordable ownership and upkeep, but exceptional performance – in line with PROTON’s brand promise of “Committed to be better.”
Priced RM2,900 above the current selling 1.6-litre automatic Saga FL, the Saga FLX SE features eight and three exterior and interior changes. The car is fitted with 15” inch alloy wheels, an all round factory-fitted body kit, fog lamps and smoked finishing rear lights. The cabin is trimmed in leather which comprises the seats, steering wheel, door ornament, parking brake and gearshift lever.
The new Proton Saga FLX SE is available in two colour- Solid White and Fire Red. The car comes with a 3-year or 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first). Customers who have ordered a Saga and are still waiting for their car to be delivered can opt to change their booking to the Saga FLX SE at the respective showroom in which the booking was originally made.
