Proton Gen2 Receives Facelift Plus Price & Trim Changes

Proton has introduced changes to the exterior, prices and trim levels of the Proton Gen2, which made its debut in 2004. The Gen2 Medium-Line is no longer available with a manual gearbox, with the Gen2 Medium-Line automatic version going for RM 54,988—RM 1500 cheaper than before. The Gen2 High-Line manual and automatic versions sell for RM 57,488 and RM 60,488, respectively—both prices are unchanged from before.

On the outside, the Gen2 has received modifications to the alloy wheels, front grille, door handles and, most obviously, the roof, which is now painted in black. The interior comes with revised leather seats and new items including a steering wheel with audio controls and a multi-purpose container. The Gen2 Hi-Line gets all of these without any price increment.

In addition to the price reduction, the Gen2 M-Line has had its 110 bhp 1.6-litre Campro IAFM engine upgraded to the more powerful 125 bhp CPS version of the same engine used in the Gen2 Hi-Line. However, the M-Line trim makes do without a body kit, fog lights, leather seats and steering wheel switches, all of which are standard on the Hi-Line trim.

Both trim levels can be specified either in Solid White or Fire Red colour. Despite the changes, Proton remains conservative, aiming for monthly sales of 300 units. Soon to be seven years old, this refreshed Gen2 could be the final version we see before the introduction of its replacement.
