SIBU: Proton Pengedar Sdn Bhd Sibu branch is confident of selling 30 to 50 units of the new Proton Preve monthly.
The company’s local branch head, Ahmadi Abdul Latif, said that for the coming month, potential buyers need only deposit a RM500 booking fee to get the car.
“When using the Preve’s 7-speed ProTronic transmission with paddle shifters, its turbo-charged engine delivers heart-thumping torque and superior ride
“The car uses a belt rather than fixed gears to turn engine torque into power, which means better fuel economy, less gear wear and tear, and more eco-friendly emissions.
“Its 1.6L charged-fuel efficiency engine with light pressure turbocharger offers the best of both worlds – 138hp of sheer adrenaline rush balanced with an impressive fuel economy,” he told reporters yesterday.
The Preve is fully equipped with front and side airbags that slow head and chest velocity during impact.
The Preve’s design sensibilities extend inwards to reveal a spacious layout with overall best-in-class cabin comfort, extra rear passenger legroom and vast headroom with a cavernous boot space. A 508-litre boot space gives plenty of room to store extra large luggage bags, golf bags and oversized suitcases.
The car integrates elegant technological features such as this engine push-start button for driver’s convenience.
It also has intelligent features like anti-trap power window, electric wing mirror, auto light sensor, follow me home lights, auto rain sensor, touch-screen GPS and smart info display.
The Preve is available in six colours, namely tranquility black, blue lagoon, genetic silver, solid white, fire red and elegant brown.
