The Proton Sage compact sedan has snapped up the Compact Sedan of the Year accolade at a recent Vehicle of the Year Award, organized by Drive Safe & Fast and Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad.

The third generation Saga was launched on 28 September 2016, staying true to its DNA as the people’s car by being the most affordable sedan in the country. “We are truly humbled and very pleased with this recognition. The new Saga has come a long way since its introduction in 1985 as a lot of improvements, enhancements and refinements have gone into the making of the new Saga,”  said Ahmad Fuaad Kenali, Chief Executive Officer of Proton.

The new Saga has a quieter cabin, compared to the previous generation, thanks to the reduction of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). It also comes with a more stylish design and offers greater practicality, safety, convenience and comfort. Tagged as the best valued model, the Proton Sage starts out at just RM36,800 for the standard variant. The Saga  premium 1.3-liter variant, comes equipped with advanced safety features such as the ESC, ABS, EBD, traction control, brake assist, hill-hold assist, airbags, ISOFIX and top-tether, with all-round sensors. It is retailed at just RM45,800.

Among the other accolades received by the Proton Saga since its launch last year were The Rising Star by ASEAN NCAP Grand Prix Awards 2016 and Value for Money Car Award from Malaysia Car of the Year 2016.
