It has been a when considering the fact that we’ve viewed a rendering of the Proton Putra. Fans of the fabled coupe have very long yearned for a successor, but that appears to be like a pipedream, if we’re genuine.
The finest we can do is give you this set of renderings by none other than Theophilus Chin. The base for this Putra is the new Geely Emgrand, a B-phase sedan that goes versus the likes of the Honda City, Toyota Vios and Nissan Almera.
Common style and design cues right here incorporate the X50‘s purple-accent grille with honeycomb mesh design and the Proton roundel, front bumper from the Binyue Pro facelift, as nicely as rear bumper from the Geely Xing Rui sedan.
Theo then eradicated the doors and pillars, shortened the wheelbase, decreased the height of the roof, and introduced ahead the A-pillars for a slightly sportier profile. Finishing off the layout are the Binyue Pro’s new blacked out wheels with pink calipers, reduced experience peak, and purple exterior paint. Like the Satria, probabilities of this being built are trim.

It’s a in a natural way aspirated unit, producing 114 PS and 147 Nm of torque. Generate is sent to the entrance wheels both as a result of a 5-pace handbook transmission or newest CVT with eight simulated drive ratios.
It features projector headlights with triple LED DRLs, minimalist dashboard style and design with a 12.3-inch entirely digital instrument cluster, 10.25-inch freestanding infotainment display with the most current GKUI Good Ecosystem (OTA updates, AI voice assistant), total-width air vent structure with CN95 intelligent air filtration procedure, and a modern flat-bottomed 3-spoke steering wheel.
