Proton Preve (Prevé) has officially launched. The new Proton product named Prevé is the official name for the highly awaited Proton P3-21A as referred by Proton before launching. First off, why and what’s Prevé, the name pronounced as (pray-vay) is derived from the word “Preve” which means to prove a point.
The Proton Preve comes in six colour option. As you can see here there’s Silver, Red, Blue, and White. Scroll below to see photos of Black and Gold colour Proton Preve. Immediately, we can spot the whole new design image Proton try to bring out by incorporating with day light LED at the headlamps and simplicity yet stylish designed body-line.
Proton Preve comes in 2 variants, which is Premium & Executive. The Proton Preve Premium will be the one equipped with CFE (Charged Fuel Efficiency) turbo engine. The Preve Premium will pump out 138bhp & 205NM of torque from the 1.6-litre Campro engine. The max torque kicks in early at a low rpm from 2000 to 4000 rpm. Which Proton claims the best acceleration vehicle in its class. On paper, the Proton Preve CFE Turbo will do 9.6 seconds from 0 to 100km/h.
The Proton Preve Premium (the one with CFE Turbo) is mated with a 7-speed ProTonic gearbox and comes with a special “S” mode for or sportier driving experience. Yet, the gear change claims to be smooth and still be fuel economy. To do that, drivers can enjoy paddle shifters on the Proton Preve (Premium) steering wheel. Proton engineers has spend a substantial amonut of time to the Proton Preve interior. It looks good for now, but we are yet to inspect to provide a more detailed report later. The Proton Preve Premium is built-in with a GPS with in-car entertainment LCD system, where as other variant will get a portable GPS device.

From the rear of Proton Preve it’s a whole new design apart from all other Proton models before. In our opinion, we feel the rear of the Proton Preve looks like rather complicated as if there’s too many pieces being put together. There’s a wide boot space and there will be a button from the car remote to pop up the boot.
The Push Start button will go along only with the Proton Preve Premium. Luckily the daylight LED with projector headlamp comes standard in all Proton Preve. Proton also included the 4G in car WIFI from YES 4G as standard for all car. However for features like Auto light sensor, Auto climate air conditioner, Auto cruise, Auto wipers are all only available in the Proton Preve Premium.
Proton referred the Proton Preve to be the first Proton global car, that meets world’s market demand and Proton will market the Proton Preve throughout the world. Proton Preve it’s already on sale and available for viewing in Proton Showrooms. The Proton Preve will be priced on-the-road price at RM 72,990.00 for premium variant and RM 62,990.00 for executive Auto transmission. The manual transmission Preve will be priced at RM 59,990.00.
