With the launch of the 2019 Proton Saga Facelift, Proton’s core models, the Persona, Iriz, Exora and Saga – conveniently abbreviated to PIES – are now updated to maintain a competitive edge in their respective segment.

The Saga gains various styling upgrades, new features and most importantly a new 4-speed torque converter automatic that replaces the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). The new gearbox is mated to the same 1.3-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder VVT petrol engine pushing out 95 hp and 120 Nm of torque.
