An excerpt from The Brunei Times:
PROTON Preve is offered in three variants which are equipped with a 1.6-litre turbo engine, which delivers power and torque equivalent to that of large 2.0-litre normally-aspired engines and is mated with a seven-speed ProTronic CVT transmission and it is economical.
PROTON's latest sedan is also its most technologically-advanced, as it utilises a method defined as Hot Press Forming (HPF) that provides better protection and higher body as well as structural rigidity without compromising the overall car bodyweight.
The Premium variant of the PROTON Preve will also include features such as steering mounted paddle shifters, satellite navigation, engine push start button and more. Safety features of the Preve includes dual front airbags, side and curtain airbags, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), EBD (Electronic BrakeforceDistribution), Brake Assist, Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control in the Premium variant.
Additionally, the premium variant is also equipped with a Smart Information Display (SID) that displays status updates on the Preve's various functions such as average fuel consumption, distance to empty, vehicle intrusion warning and more.
The Preve's showroom price is 26,900(MT) and $28,550(CVT) for the executive variants, and $32,650 for the premium variant. It is available in six colours such as Blue Lagoon, Tranquility Black, Solid White, Fire Red, Elegant Brown and Genetic Silver.
