Proton has launched a much cheaper variant of the ever popular Saga, which is called the Saga SV. The SV, does not stand for Super Veloce, and it is also not known as Super Value as many claimed. It is known as Samy Vellu edition, as this car will be the Malaysia government token of appreciation to Malaysians.
The Proton Saga Samy Vellu Edition!
This car is named after former Malaysian minister and champion of the Indian community in Malaysia for many years, Dato Seri S Samy Vellu. After all, the car’s only project manager, designer, test driver and crash test dummy is all done by none other than the great Samy Vellu.
Samy’s expression when asked how does it feels when his driving it
The car is equipped with 13 inch steel alloys, single CD player and reverse sensor. It’s just that when the CD player starts, the MIC hit tune “Beribu Ribu Tahniah” will be played in infinite loop. Not only it is cheaper than having a standard radio but it is also shows the Government of Malaysia acknowledges those who voted for them in the last General Election and pay their gratitude by playing that song non-stop until the car is halted. Another way for drivers to stop that song from playing is by driving into a road divider or a tree and crash it.
Similarly with the standard Saga, this bogged down Saga scored 3 stars on ASEAN NCAP, which is good enough to withstand crashes from “Act of God”, namely cows, goats and trees, but doesn’t necessary saves the driver’s life. No changes on the powertrain department, so don’t be surprised if you got smoked by the Myvi or Viva on traffic light drag race.
All buyers of the Saga SV will be entitled with the life long supply of fake hair wig. Drivers of the Saga SV can even crash into the toll barriers and all repairs will be fully covered by the government. This will somehow compensate drivers who may need to spend a little more than usual for fuel as the car fuel consumption reportedly at 2.5km/litter, the only feature shared similarly with another SV, the Lamborghini Murcielago Super Veloce. However Dato Seri has assured the car can run perfectly on coconut oil.
SV doesnt even stands for Sebastian Vettel edition. It is afterall a loser’s edition
The car starts at RM33,000-36,888, yet another reflection on car manufacturers in Malaysia to use triple 8 just to maximize profit and to pay for Feng Shui consultation. With the tagline “Janji Dicapati”, the car will be entitled with three-year/100,000 km warranty and the lifetime supply of capati courtesy of Kayu Nasi Kandar Nationwide.
