Comes with a CVT gearbox, the Exora Bold CFE Standard uses the same 1.6 litre turbocharged CFE engine which is also found in the Premium. The powerplant produces 138hp at 5000rpm and 205Nm of torque from 2000-4000rpm.
Thankfully, the Standard's safety equipment level is the same compared to Premium, with ABS, EBD and two airbags as standard. Standard uses rear drum brakes instead of disc brake found in the Premium. What's also omitted are steering wheel with audio control, cruise control, reverse camera, front fog lamps, rear spoiler and reverse sensor. Seriously Proton, wing mirror with turn indicator can be standard but not reverse sensor for a MPV?
The exterior door handles, tailgate finishing and wing mirrors are unpainted/in their default black colour to further differentiate Standard and Premium variant.
It seems like a bargain for a 7-seater MPV with a turbocharged engine selling at under RM70k. But the reverse sensor have to be a standard item and the horrendous looking wheel caps got to go.
