Subang Jaya, 28 May 2019 – PROTON officially launched the 2019 Exora at the PROTON Crystal Showroom located at its Centre of Excellence (COE) facility in Subang Jaya today.
Priced at RM59,800 (Exora 1.6T Executive) and RM66,800 (Exora 1.6T Premium), the national carmaker’s seven-seat MPV has received running changes for the 2019 model year consisting of styling revisions, component improvements to raise product quality as well as first-in-class smart features setting it apart from its competitors.
The MPV with intelligence that moves
Following the convention set by the Proton X70, 2019 Persona and 2019 Iriz, the 2019 Exora uses Intelligence That Moves to signify not only its intelligent features but also the class leading performance and space it offers for up to seven adult occupants.
The 2019 Exora is equipped with an intelligent infotainment system, allowing PROTON to introduce first-in-class features for its market segment. Available on the 1.6T Premium variant, an embedded eSIM card ensures mobile Internet connectivity for a rich multimedia experience. Apps for music streaming, online navigation and weather updates are offered and can be accessed via a 7-inch touchscreen featuring a full colour display. For added convenience, the system offers smartphone connectivity as well as a mirror function for Android devices.
As is standard for all Proton models featuring its current intelligent infotainment system, a voice recognition app is offered and can be accessed using the familiar Hi Proton! catchphrase. The app is the gateway to a range of functions using voice commands, allowing drivers to keep their eyes on the road even while performing complex requests like searching for destinations or songs.
To ensure the software remains up to date, Over the Air (OTA) updates will be offered periodically with the possibility of new apps being added when they become available.
Restyled interior paired to class leading performance and handling
The 2019 Exora receives minor exterior styling tweaks to keep it looking fresh. A new shark fin antenna is paired with the black exterior roof panel for a sportier look while a new colour, Rosewood Maroon, makes the MPV stand out wherever you drive it.
Inside, new interior upholstery adds a luxurious touch and boosts seat comfort while a new meter combination delivers a clear view of important information at a single glance. A new borderless rear view mirror gives a wider view of other road users while interior room remains a major selling point as this is the only MPV in its class to offer space for seven adults.
Under the bonnet is the only 1.6-litre turbocharged engine to power an MPV in the class. With 140PS at 5,000rpm and 203Nm of torque from 2,000-4,000 rpm, the 2019 Exora is able to respond quickly to any demands asked of it. Speed is matched to sure footed handling as PROTON’s chassis engineers tuned the ride and handling to deliver an unmatched balance of sure footedness and ride comfort.
With twin front airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), disc brakes all-around, anti-lock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and front seatbelts with pretensioners, there is a full suite of safety equipment that is combined with convenience features such as rear parking sensors and a reverse camera.
