Compact sedan of the year – Proton Saga
Despite the popularity of crossovers and SUVs, the compact sedan is still the first choice for most Malaysian car buyers. Whether you’re a fresh graduate, a parent, a retiree or an Uber/Grab driver, there’s no running away from something with a low price tag and a large boot.
Proton’s new Saga takes the award in this category. With prices starting below RM37,000, it’s attainable to most Malaysians. Of all the cars launched by Proton last year, the Saga impressed us the most. It’s exceptionally refined, competent at high speeds and packed with features that you probably won’t expect at its sensible price.
