Why The Amazing 5 Value Campaign Will Make You Want a Proton
Buying a new car is a big decision, and one thing on every buyer’s mind is peace of mind. Many are willing to spend above their budget for a foreign made car just for longer and more comprehensive warranty packages. Well, with this new campaign by Proton, Malaysians finally have access to the peace of mind that usually costs ridiculous amounts of money.
Proton’s ‘Amazing 5 Value’ Campaign covers 3 major concerns – safety, cost of ownership, and resale value.
The first thing you’ll get is 5-star safety. This applies to most of their vehicles, including the Iriz, Persona, Preve, and Suprima S. These cars are priced much lower than the foreign competitors and are still equipped with hot-formed steel and stability control.
Besides that, you also get ISOFIX mounting points and up to 6 airbags on these vehicles. The Persona and Iriz were awarded 5 stars by ASEAN NCAP, while the Preve and Suprima S got 5 stars from both Australian NCAP and ASEAN NCAP.
Worried about how much it’ll cost to service the car at the authorised dealer? Well, not with Proton. With this new campaign, they’re throwing in 5 years of free service. This covers lubricants, parts and labour for 5 years or 100,000km – which translates to an average of about 54km of driving daily. Even if you do a lot more than that, your first few years of ownership will cost nothing more than your monthly instalments and fuel.
Finally, there’s the warranty deal itself. These days, 3-year coverage is what you can expect at the bare minimum. But Proton have extended theirs to 5 years. This means that you can have total peace of mind throughout the ownership period. No huge, unexpected bills to worry about so your savings can stay safe.
With all this in mind, there’s only one thing left to do: test drive the products themselves.
