Proton said that the new price is not a margin cutting exercise, nor is it a promotion, discount or a rebate.
As we reported on Thursday, a new Proton model variant has been introduced – as intimated, it’s Saga-based, although it has a new suffix. The Proton Saga SV was officially launched at the Proton Edar Platinum Showroom in Mutiara Damansara earlier this morning.
The Saga SV, the acronym standing for Super Value, becomes the cheapest Proton currently available. A Proton spokesman said it is not meant as a replacement for the FLX Standard variant, which from RM38,361 (manual, solid), comes with additional minor kit such as first aid kit, safety triangle, tinted windows, luggage tray, door visor and trunk lid cover.
Incidentally, the more eagle-eyed will notice that the car features both FLX and SV badging on the tailgate. The car is part of the Saga FLX model range, but will simply be known as the Saga SV.
