Design

The Proton Saga 2016 : Proton New Saga also known as the third generation Saga, it is the latest Proton model to use an existing nameplate, and directly replaces the second generation Saga which was produced from early 2008 to late 2016. The Proton new Saga launched approximately one month after the new Persona, its larger and more sophisticated sibling. The Proton New Saga was officially launched on 28 September 2016 at Setia City Convention Centre in Shah Alam, Malaysia

The Proton Saga 2016 : Proton New Saga is based on the outgoing Saga FLX platform, but its exterior and interior design has been completely re-engineered. Proton Saga 2016 : Proton New Saga is powered by the Iriz’s 1.3-litre VVT engine and CVT combination, both of which have been further refined for improved fuel efficiency, reduced NVH and a smoother driving experience.

Four variants of the new Saga were made available, namely the Standard MT, Standard CVT, Executive CVT and Premium CVT. The various trim levels differ mainly in terms of kit, cosmetic enhancements and safety features, but are otherwise mechanically identical.

Twin airbags are standard across the range, but ABS is not available on the entry-level Standard, and ESC is reserved for the range-topping Premium. ASEAN NCAP has awarded a four-star rating for all variants of the new Saga. Prices range from RM36,800 to RM45,800 respectively.

Exterior

The Proton Saga 2016 : Proton New Saga features halogen reflector headlamps like its predecessors, but its rear lamps have reverted to more conventional bulb-based lighting as opposed to LEDs, to cut costs and pricing. However, all new Saga variants get a rear fog light as standard and Proton lettering inserts for both front and rear lamps. The new Saga is also the third model to feature Proton’s new sculptured, three-dimensional badge.

The various cosmetic enhancements in the new Saga are preset according to their respective trim levels. The door handles are matte black on the Standard variants, but are painted in the body colour in the Executive and Premium lines. The wing mirror housings are also matte in the Standard, but are body coloured in the Executive and Premium. The wing mirrors do not incorporate a power-folding feature, but are nonetheless power-adjustable in the Executive and Premium.  The B-pillars are body colour coded in the Standard, but are blacked out in the Executive and Premium. The rear garnish is matte black in the Standard, body coloured in the Executive, and chrome plated in the Premium. A rear bootlid lip spoiler is only fitted on the Executive and Premium lines.

The Standard is equipped with 13-inch steel rims and hubcaps carried over from the second generation Saga. Both Executive and Premium variants feature new alloy wheels. Proton has fitted their 14-inch ‘snowflake’ Y-spoke rims on the Executive, and 15-inch ‘turbine’ split-spoke rims on the Premium.Front fog lights are only available on the Executive and Premium lines. The new Saga is produced in six colours, namely Fire Red, Cotton White, Topaz Blue, Sterling Silver, Midnight Black, and Metal Grey.

Interior

All variants of the new Saga are fitted with all-round power windows and central locking. Additionally, the steering wheel is tilt-adjustable, while the driver’s seat can be adjusted for height. The interior of the new Saga is all-black with the exception of the roof padding, sun visors and pillar covers. There are ten storage compartments, two cup holders and four bottle holders in total.

Proton has specified fabric seat upholstery for all variants of the new Saga. The seats have a mesh pattern in the Executive and a wavy design on the Premium, but are plain black in the Standard. The Executive model receives glossy grey accents on the outer air-con vents and steering wheel, while the Premium adds on more glossy grey finishing on the gear lever.

Two different head units are offered in the new Saga. The Standard and Executive variants are equipped with a new single-DIN head unit, while the Premium model gets a larger double-DIN head unit paired to steering wheel audio switches. Both head units have radio, Bluetooth, USB, AUX and CD/MP3 playback.[ Audio is channelled to twin front and rear speakers in the Executive and Premium lines, and twin rear speakers in the Standard The Premium model is equipped with a reverse camera that is linked to a LCD display which is built into the rear view mirror. Twin rear USB charging ports are standard on all variants.

Safety & Performance

The latest Proton model to feature the company’s new Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) program. VDC is an active safety net which includes an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and brake assist (BA), hill-hold assist (HHA), traction control (TCS) and electronic stability control (ESC).

The sole purpose of the VDC program is to prevent or minimise the risks of a potential accident. Up to ten computer systems monitor all four wheels in addition to the driver’s steering, throttle and braking input, in real time. Should the VDC system detect a loss of traction, the ESC and TCS components automatically apply braking pressure and reduce engine speed to prevent oversteer or understeer, ensuring that the driver remains in control. Should the driver apply the brakes in an emergency, the ABS component prevents the wheels from locking up, while EBD assigns appropriate brake force to each wheel and BA increases braking pressure to bring the car to a safe and complete stop. The HHA component prevents the car from rolling backwards whilst on a hill, should the brake pedal be released.

Nonetheless, the VDC program is not standard fit across the Saga range. The entry-level Saga Standard does not offer any VDC components.The mid-range Saga Executive adds on ABS, EBD and BA. The range-topping Saga Premium is the only variant to receive ESC, TCS and HHA.

The brakes in the new Saga consist of ventilated discs at the front and drums at the back.Proton has equipped 175/70R13 Silverstone Synergy M3 tyres on the Standard variants, 185/60R14 Silverstone Kruizer1 NS800 tyres on the Executive, and 185/55R15 Silverstone Kruizer1 NS800 tyres on the Premium respectively. The new Saga has a kerb weight of between 1,035 kg and 1,075 kg depending on the variant.

The suspension setup in the third generation Saga, like the FLX previously, consists of MacPherson struts with stabiliser bars at the front and torsion beam axles at the rear. However, Proton has fitted new springs and dampers, as well as a new strut bar in the engine bay for improved handling and control. Proton has also lowered the steering ratio to 16:1 from 20:1 previously, and reduced the steering effort to 2.75 kgf from 3.0 kgf. The steering rack angle is now steeper and allows for a tighter turning radius of 5.1 m compared to 5.3 m previously.

The third generation Saga continues to utilize a hydraulic power steering system, which offers more engaging steering feedback at the expense of lighter steering effort. Front parking sensors are standard on all Saga variants.  The two front sensors, located just below the headlamps, complement the twin sensors on the rear bumper.

The Proton Saga 2016 : Proton New Saga is powered by Proton’s 1.3-litre VVT engine, a naturally aspirated, four-cylinder, 16-valve DOHC petrol unit with variable valve timing.The 1.3-litre VVT, the sole option in the new Saga, is capable of 94 hp at 5,750 rpm and 120 Nm at 4,000 rpm.

As a result of the various refinements made to the engine and transmission combination in the new Saga, Proton claims that fuel efficiency has improved by 10% to 5.4L/100 km with the manual, and by 11% to 5.6L/100 km with the CVT, both at a constant speed of 90 km/h. The new Saga is the second Proton model to utilize the company’s new ECO Drive Assist feature. The system assesses the driver’s throttle input, and a green indicator on the instrument cluster will light up when the car is being driven in an economical manner.
