Like Isuzu before them, Proton occasionally utilizes their ownership of Lotus to create tuned Malaysian vehicles. In this case, Lotus is turning their experience to the Mazda5-esque Proton Exora MPV. Respect the van.
The attractive Exora Prestige van is what passes for a sweet luxury ride in Malaysia and the addition of a turbocharged, Lotus-tuned engine puts this vehicle in the upper strata of Proton's offerings. We'd like to think of this as the Mazdaspeed5 we've always wanted, but with an expected 170 HP and Mitsubishi 4-speed transmission it may be wishful thinking.
