Proton Exora Prime selling at RM89k !

Recently I've discovered that Proton has a new tab for Proton Exora Prime, a more expensive variant of the Exora MPV. The fact is the Exora Prime had actually launched together with the Exora Bold, but there aren't many of Exora Prime on the road due to its higher price tag. Priced at RM89k, the Exora Prime is about RM9k more expensive than Exora Bold, but comes with some exquisite finishings and premium gadgets.

 Exterior wise, the Exora Prima has almost the same design as the Exora Bold, except that it comes with gold-finished alloy rims, a slightly different grille design and chrome housing for the fog lights.

In the inside, the centre panel receives walnut finishing,which I think it doesn't go well along with the dark-theme cabin. It gets a touch-screen centre console with integrated reverse camera (instead of in the rear-view mirror found in the Exora Bold) and navigation.

 Another notable changes in the cabin is the captain chairs for the 2nd row. Don in leather, the seats are also in 2-tone colour, something that brighten up the dark-coloured cabin. The 'VIPs' sitting in the 2nd row can also enjoy some movies from the LCD monitor integrated into the back of the front seat's headrest. 

Safety remains the same with the usual ABS, EBD and Dual SRS airbags. Engine is also unchanged, where it uses the same 1.6 litre CFE engine found in Exora Bold. It produces 138 hp @ 5000rpm and 205Nm of torque from 2000-4000rpm.
