Proton is one of the signatures of cars most unknown of the sector, however if we remember that is the owner of Lotus Cars the thing could change. In addition, we have already spoken of it on several occasions for some of their models, or by the possible collaboration that I wanted to establish with other manufacturers to share technologies and thus make the company stronger. Well, today we bring you one of the models that Proton has launched in its home market thanks to the collaboration of Suzuki.
The Proton Ertiga is the new monovolúmen small of the signature of malaya. This model takes the base and engines of the Suzuki Ertiga that is sold in India. As you can see in the pictures the model has a design very resulted for the size and it fits very well to the type of market to which it is addressed. The main difference that exists with the car of Suzuki is the logos, the different design of the alloy wheels and little more.
As you can see the basic lines of your design are very simple. Is a car with a size very content that takes advantage of your interior to the maximum to accommodate six occupants (the seat cushion of the third row has space for three people but only has two seat belts). This model is assembled in the factory, which has a Proton in Malaysia although it does not use any assembly line, but that Suzuki serves directly from its factory in Indonesia in the form of a Kit CKD.
