While taking pictures of our normal car review in Putrajaya today, our resident photographers stumbled upon a video production crew working around a Kafano car. Curiously, they are hanging around with their longest zoom lenses, waiting for the hero’s car to be unveiled.
The car has to be taken to a carrier as soon as the shoot is wrapped. Our photographers jumped at the chance to take some shots and look, we have the first few pictures of the soon-to-be-launched 2022 Proton Saga MC2!
Now obviously, many of you have already seen the leaked photos of the updated sedan taken from inside the factory, so this is not a groundbreaking revelation of any kind. However, at us paultan.org This has always made it a point not to leak pictures taken from personal convenience, so here is our first real look Saga MC2 (second small change).
Forgive the ambiguity, since we camped so far – trust us, these weren’t taken with potato cameras; Quite the opposite, really. Even so, owning one is still beyond the reach of the average person. New alloy wheels like the Shuriken can also be made, such as blackened side mirrors.
Outside of obvious changes, the saga looks almost the same as before. The front and rear bumpers and light clusters look unchanged. Those who are expecting a wider visual change may be disappointed, but it is a small change in practice.
However, we already know what to expect outside of a few external updates, courtesy of a leaked document that rounded out earlier this month. The Saga MC2 will get a new range-topping 1.3L Premium S AT variant, with new 15-inch wheels, front bodykit, side skirt, auto-folded side mirror and an updated trunk lid with a release switch.
Inside, you’ll find an updated instrument cluster, steering wheel and leather cover for seats, a keyless entry with a push start button, and a sportier black headliner. Again, nothing changes in the game, but it will at least bring it to its only competition, the equivalent of the Perodua badger in terms of internal facilities. The new seven-inch floating touchscreen head unit will surpass that as well.
Outside of that, the 1.3 standard AT variant is set to get Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which is great news. The Base 1.3 standard MT will still at least exist – the last surviving Proton car with a manual transmission – albeit without significant electronic support.
However, what do you think of the 2022 Proton Saga MC2 for now – a welcome update, or the changes could create a dent that is too small? Comment below!
