DRB seems to put this model at a Premium price. And only targets around 300units/month. But looking at the price & package offered, I'm pretty sure this car will surpass that target easily. DRB is very serious in bringing up Proton's image, and this is a major test as the first model coming out of Proton's Tanjung Malim factory under DRB management.

Hope things will turn out right.

This photo was seen in a few net forums since morning. I bet someone from the marketing or maybe the supplier that printed this brochure purposely leak the name.
It clearly indicates that the new P3-22A Hatch model will be known as Proton Suprima S. The CFE emblem that we saw in Exora and Preve model will also be changed to Turbo. 

There are reports that KRU studios was appointed to create a TV advert for this car. Hopefully it will be better than it's "brother", the Proton Preve. I have a feeling that this car can sell well. Can't wait to see it in showroom and test drive this baby. 

Who knows, this could be the car that I've been waiting for.

Looking good from this angle

Model terbaru PROTON bakal muncul selepas Hari Raya minggu depan. Kemungkinan dilancarkan pada pertengahan bulan August. Model ini ialah versi Hatchback kepada PROTON Preve. Namun difahamkan ia tidak akan membawa nama Preve. Sebaliknya model sport hatchback ini akan diberi nama baru yang masih belum diketahui.

Model ini masih mengekalkan rekaan asal Preve, tetapi sedikit berbeza pada bahagian belakang. Front fascia masih mengekalkan imej sama, kecuali perubahan kecil seperti lampu DRL (lebih terang, bukan Position Lamp seperti Preve), dan grill bumper honeycomb.

Bagi model premium (high-spec) dibekalkan dengan kerusi kemasan kulit, touchscreen system saiz 7inci menggunakan OS Android beserta reverse camera. Dari segi keselamatan, kereta ini khabarnya dilengkapi dengan curtain airbag, menjadikan kesemuanya 6 airbag (front, side & curtain airbag). Rim tayar bersaiz 17inci bagi model premium, dan 16inci untuk model executive.

Seperti biasa, tiap kali PROTON mengeluarkan model baru, pasti akan mendapat perhatian luar biasa. Biarpun jenama PROTON ini sudah biasa menjadi kutukan sejak berkurun lamanya, ia tetap menjadi topik hangat.

Persoalan sekarang, apakah nama model ini dan berapakah harga yang diputuskan untuk model hatch ini? Sama-sama kita tunggu selepas Hari Raya nanti.
