Both Proton Preve and Exora had their wraps off at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show and will be on sale in 2013. Currently, Preve is open for booking where the base model GX manual is priced at AUS$18,990 (RM60k) while GX CVT at AUS$20,990 (RM66k).
I’m not quite sure why but the second media drive of the Proton Prevé didn’t include the IAFM+ variant with the CVT gearbox. Last time round it was the manual version that was excluded as there was only a limited number available. It’s almost as if all three types can never be in the same room at the same time…. Nevertheless this drive helped me form a more rounded picture of what the Proton Prevé has to offer. Yes, the verdict is in….
Monopolistic Competition. It’s a contradiction in terms, but it really does exist in the world of economics. A monopoly is when you have no competition – something that got Microsoft into trouble sometime back – so how can monopolistic competition exist? While many may argue the facts or fictions about MC, I sensed it happening right here recently, thanks to our first national carmaker, and its latest incarnation, the P3-21A or Prevé.
Writing your first impressions of any car is tricky. More so when the car in question is one of the very first few to roll off the assembly line – if it can even be called that at such early stage. The new Proton Preve (pronounced Prea-vae) is yet to be launched but a large contingent of media have been given the chance to test drive it. It was a decently long test route of 150km and we’ve got loads to share.
