The Proton Gen2 has been in the market since 2004. Proton Gen2 CPS which is available in these few year are only in the H-Line model. Now, Proton decides to gives a little extra to the customers. Proton did a few cosmetic upgrade on the Gen2 CPS (most significantly the black roof). The part that interest most of the people is Proton Gen2 CPS is available for M-Line now.[singlepic id=2066 w=630 h= float=center]
If you are not familiar how Proton classify their car model range, M-Line means medium line. The good news is Proton has reduce the Proton Gen2 CPS M-Line price by RM1,500 making it RM57,480 ( Automatic – version). The best part out of you getting the cosmetic upgrade is -You are getting the 125hp Proton Campro CPS red cover engine instead of the 110hp Camrpo IAFM. This is a definitely not a common scenario coming from car maker which just reminded me Toyota Vios with just facelfit without engine upgrades but “upgraded” the price. The Proton Gen2 CPS H-Line prices are remain unchanged as compare to previous.[singlepic id=2068 w=630 h= float=center]
Something that put me off a little bit is that, the Proton Gen2 CPS M-line is only available with automatic gearbox. However you will have 2 colours to choose from – Solid White and Fire Red, both with black roof top. Proton has also tweaked the front grille, rims and door handle. Not something that we can notice easily.[singlepic id=2069 w=630 h= float=center]
Inside the revised Proton Gen2 CPS leather upholstery is available only for H-Line. M-line will most likely get the standard Gen2 fabric seat. On top of that, the new Proton Gen CPS M-line also doesn’t come with bodykit as standard. Other than that, multi-function steering wheel & foglights are only available in H-Line Proton Gen2 CPS.[singlepic id=2067 w=630 h= float=center]
