They are not launching cars. They are introducing new trim levels. Yawn. Putting lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig.

Boss, don't think too much ya. Hahaha. You think possible or not?

Won't be anything new, the Saga went from the punched CVT to the 4 speed AT. As much as I hate CVT with a passion, a properly executed CVT is objectively better than a properly executed 4 speed AT. Keyword being properly executed. Proton never executed anything properly except handling. Geely had more sense than Proton.

Announcing 4 AT on the rest of the Campro line up isn't new, and I am not sure if its a good or bad difference. Maybe a 6 speed AT.. but still, all these cars are obsolete and EOL.

How dare you...didnt you read the word 'special'?
Its not an ordinary kerbau pendek but a SPECIAL one...hihihi.

Anyway, i noticed something when browsing thru the Iriz R3 picture where it shows the floor mat and footwell of the driver side. There is a hump on the carpet below the accelerator pedal. Whats the purpose of this?
I cant remember if my bro Iriz got it as i just drives the car.

Not sure how is the proton 4 AT. My chery suv is 4 AT, and gear ratio difference between 3 and 4 is just too great, so much so I switch to select the gears manually......lol
