Spied: 2017 New Proton Exora En Route To Showroom

After Proton introduced the updated Iriz in May, the company will be debuting the updated Proton Exora, as evident by the spyshot posted by our friends over at Funtasticko.

According to the source, Proton will be introducing two variants of the updated Exora, Executive and Executive Plus, with the latter said to replace the Exora Premium. The refreshed Proton Exora will continue to be offered in Elegant Brown, Cocoa Grey, Indiana Grey and Cotton White. Ruby Red that was first introduced on the Perdana and subsequently the Iriz is a new colour for the Exora. 

Similar to the updated Proton Iriz, the new Proton Exora will receive similar NVH enhancements, including Proton's new 3-mount design for the engine mounts. With less engine mounts to hold the engine and transmission in palce, vibrations and harshness can be reduced significantly.

On top of that, the updated Proton Exora could be receiving a new turbo oil cooler hose to replace the problematic part that failed prematurely on a number of Campro CFE-powered vehicles including the Preve, Suprima S, and Exora. Proton issued a recall last year for all three models to resolve the issue at the time.

Visual updates include dual tone body colour for the Exora Executive Plus, with the side mirrors, rear spoiler and roof painted in Quartz Black. Elsewhere, the front grille and rear chrome bar is now finished in black. The Exora's body kit, including side skirts are finished in dark grey. We can also expect the Exora to feature Proton's new emblem throughout, including on the wheel caps. Inside, the Exora is tipped to receive a new infotainment system with USB connectivity. 

Given that units are heading to showrooms, it might come as soon as this week before the arrival of Hari Raya.
