It comes as no surprise that Proton’s best-selling model, the Saga, will be updated real soon. Proton themselves have confirmed that an updated Saga is on the way, and numerous spyshots of the updated Saga have surfaced.
From the spyshots we’ve obtained so far, we can confirm that the updated Saga will likely feature the same ‘Ethereal Bow’ front grille, similar to the facelifted Iriz and Persona and revised front and rear bumpers. Thanks to a spy video a reader sent us (thanks Dad), we can also confirm that at least one variant of the updated Saga will get LED daytime running lights, fitted at each end of the front bumper. Wheel designs are also expected to be refreshed.
Apart from the exterior updates, our friends over at Automachi posted an interior photo of what is claimed to be from the updated Saga, featuring a floating-style touchscreen head unit. The floating-style head unit will most likely feature the “Hi Proton” voice command system running on the GKUI software.
As for lower variants of the updated Saga, these variants are expected to feature a simpler-looking floating-style head unit, albeit without the touchscreen display, only with a monochrome display with buttons, as posted by Funtasticko.
In addition to the new head units, the meter cluster in the updated Saga now mirrors that of the updated Exora, with a segmented LCD multi-info display in the centre of the meter cluster.
Last but certainly not the least, sources familiar with the matter also mentioned that the updated Saga will likely be fitted with a Hyundai PowerTech four-speed automatic, ditching the tried-and-tested Punch-sourced CVT-type automatic.
