“PROTON has been a national carmaker for the last 30 years and we look forward to more years to come to remain relevant and contribute to the nation’s growth. Echoing our Chairman’s challenge to the public to “just come and test drive Proton cars”, this campaign is to create awareness of how Proton cars have evolved from the first Saga. The only way to know the difference is to take our cars for a test drive and at the same time, stand a chance to win prizes,” said Dato’ Abdul Harith Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer, PROTON Holdings Bhd.

“We have always emphasised that PROTON is not just about making cars and with this campaign, it is about experiencing the drive as well. We would like our customers to feel and experience the cars. It is the only way to understand the level of engineering that has been put into each Proton model that we have built,” added Dato’ Harith.

Customers can also enjoy 30% on all Proton merchandise during the campaign period. Malaysians with a valid IC and driving license are eligible to participate in the “Test Drive & Win” contest.
