Following the overwhelming response of Proton Saga SV, Proton has announced the debut of Persona SV with starting price of RM44,938. Orders for the Saga SV has reached 42,000 units, thus Proton is targeting 2,400 units of Persona SV to be sold for each month.
Again, SV stands for 'Super Value', it does prove its point. Thankfully, the Persona SV has the same 15-inch rims that the Standard variant has instead of plastic wheel caps like the one on Saga SV. The Persona SV is also fitted with Dual SRS airbags, ABS, EBD, 4-wheel disc brake and side mirror signal light as standard, while the more expensive Standard variant only offers one airbag. However, door visors, bodykits, fog lights, tailpipe finisher are omitted and the wing mirrors are manually adjusted. Engine remained the same - the 1.6 litre Campro IAFM engine which produces 110hp at 6500rpm and 148Nm at 4000rpm.
Easy Financing scheme allows monthly repayment of as low as RM388. Proton Persona SV manual costs RM44,938 for solid and RM45,388 for metallic, while auto costs RM47,938 for solid and RM48,388 for metallic, all on-the-road with insurance. Thus, the Persona SV makes a more sensible choice over the Saga 1.6. Two-year or 50,000km warranty is offered for the Persona SV, but isn't the standard offering for warranty by every manufacturer is at least three-year? Even the Saga SV has three-year warranty......
