Proton Exora
Wednesday, 13 May 2009
For those who aren’t familiar with the Proton cars, it’s a Malaysian made car that has been in the market for close to 20 years now. Nevertheless, the Malaysian manufacturer has unveiled their first MPV for the market and they have actually named it as the Exora.

What makes the Exora rather unique is the fact that it’s supposed to be an affordable MPV for the Asian market. On the other hand, the car manufacturers claimed that this particular MPV boasts both economical fuel consumption and good power from the CAMPRO engine.

Personally, I can say that the car looks pretty much like the Toyota Avanza, the only difference is the back of the vehicle, which seems to be large for its size. I’ve embedded photos of the car itself for your viewing pleasure.

And as for the car’s safety, the Exora performed so-so with an achievement of 4-star Euro NCAP, which is somewhat equivalent to the Honda Jazz/Fit model. Here are some videos of the Exora crash tests with various types of test being performed on the car:
