Gen. 2 = Basikal (?)

Aku pernah terbaca komen ni tentang Gen.2, terpulang kepada anda untuk menilaikan semula...

Verdict On Cars Test

Gen2 looks quite smart from the outside and it was developed with help from Lotus - but don't be fooled. If you can put up with the appalling engine noise then the other serious drawback is lack of power, especially at low speed. Avoid the automatic gearbox option and buy a periscope for extra rear visibility. The driving position is terrible and soft seats don't help. Inside, the fit and finish lack any refinement. Passengers are confronted by dull, lifeless plastic and flimsy fittings all round. If you must have a brand new car then the Gen2 is relatively cheap - until you come to resell it. Equipment levels on some cars are good, with air conditioning and a Blaupunkt CD-player.
Overall though, a smaller Ford Fiesta, an ageing Rover 25 or a bicycle are better buys.

Quick Summary

Verdict On Cars says:
Steer Clear. Poor build quality and a dated engine plague the latest Proton. Gen2 looks reasonable from every angle but is generally poor value for money.

4car says:
Not recommended. "Plenty of better ways to spend ten grand."

Auto Express says:
"It's a good car at an excellent price but there are a few flies in the ointment."
