It's no secret that the latest member in Proton's family is Proton PREVÉ... The sedan was previously given the codename P3-21A and supposedly to be Proton's global car. Proton PREVÉ is actually pronounce as Proton 'Pray-Vae' which mean 'to prove'. Akan dilancarkan secara rasmi oleh abe Jib pada 16 April nih (patut letak je nama Proton 1M baru dia hepi sket,kan? haha) :P
Dah dibuka untuk tempahan dan diletakkan dalam julat rega RM62k to RM75k... TBH, i prefer to see in flesh first before doing any bookings...
