Naturally, the Saga has been enriching the lives of more than 1.7 million Malaysian families since its first production. It received numerous recognitions with the recent ones being, Value for Money Car Award in 2016 and Compact Sedan of the Year in 2017.” said Abdul Rashid Musa, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, PROTON.
“The Saga we have now is the third generation Saga which has gone through a lot of improvement, enhancements and refinements. It has a quieter cabin due to the reduction of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) level, with a more stylish design, much more practical, durable and gives customers better value for the good safety features, convenient features and comfort level in the car. From as low as RM35,590.29, or RM390 per month (without insurance), it is affordable to most Malaysians,” Rashid added.
