The Proton Gen2 Is Equipped Well

By Robert Downey

Looking For Used Cars Then check this out. The Gen2 features a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder engine under the bonnet, and driving the front wheels through a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox.

The Gen2 L-line is quite well equipped, and includes electric windows and mirrors, a CD player, air conditioning, central locking and power steering. Dual front airbags are standard, along with seat belt pretensioners.The M-line builds on this spec with alloy wheels and anti-lock brakes.

H-line adds dual side airbags in the front seats, climate control air conditioning, reverse parking sensors, front and bac fog lamps, a back spoiler and a mobile phone holder.

The Gen2 offers flexible driver positioning, with a tilt and reach adjustable steering wheel, though the highest setting was still too low for our liking. The driver’s seat adjusts for rake, reach and up and down.The rear seats have good legroom, and adequate under seat foot space, but headroom is tight if you like sitting back against the backrest.

Boot space is downright useless for a car of this size.Every Gen2 comes standard with side-intrusion bars, front airbags for driver and passenger and front seat belt pretensioners, which take up the slack in a collision. Gen2 exhibits impressive dynamic safety features inherent in its responsive chassis and better than average tyre grip in the dry.

Under Gen2′s stylish bonnet rests a 1.6-litre, four cylinder engine, This engine is part of the CamPro engine family which will eventually include a variable valve-timed 1.6-litre and a bigger displacement 2.0-litre variant, among others.In this 16-valve, twincam guise the engine knocks out 82kW of power at 6000rpm and 148Nm of torque at 4000rpm.

That the engine revs to a 7200rpm cutout suggests a liveliness on paper that the engine can’t match in real life, despite the car’s acceptable kerb weight of 1190kg.

Gearbox choices fall to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox, though none of the latter were available at the media drive day. All wheels feature disc brakes, ventilated at the front, solid at the rear.
