Satria Neo 1.6 A M-Line
Liquid Orange
Price=RM 51500.00
Down Payment= RM6500.00
Monthly Payment= RM 571.00

Sedap gak Neo neh...but as korang pon taw..typical proton kan...what's worse than vibration??shit kan...so unacceptable with the price. If kat japan neh; you can get more that Neo with 51.5k car. No shit!!
Well!!it's not something that i want to story; it's ABOUT how the old satria evolved to satria neo.

The first edition Proton launched the iconic two-door hatchback, the Proton Satria back in December 1994. The Proton Satria was based on the Mitsubishi Colt and came in 1.3 liter and 1.6 liter variants.
Two years later, it received it’s first minor facelift, with the number plate relocated to the hatch instead of on the bumper. Four years after it’s introduction, the sporty Satria GTI variant was released, featuring a sporty bodykit, Lotus tuned ride and handling as well as a powerful 1.8 liter twin-cam engine making 140 horsepower.

In 2003, Proton introduced the Satria Special Edition which featured a new bodykit and a minor interior facelift. Pastue in 2004, the R3-tuned limited edition Satria R3 was launched. The Satria is one of Proton’s more successful models, achieving near-cult status in hatchback-loving countries like the UK. Bangge la sket...kan??huhu!!

The Proton Satria Neo is an all new platform developed from scratch. It is not based on the Waja/Gen2 chassis or the old Satria chassis. However for the sake of better economies of scale, it does share some components with the Proton Gen2. The new Proton Satria Neo’s exterior design projects a stout and intimidating image. Projector headlamps are of the Proton tiger eyes design first seen on the Proton Gen2. The headlamps are a 4-headlamp projector system which uses H1 bulbs. And with less drag coefficient, this will improve performance and fuel consumption for Neo.

Talking about engine; and yes..it is a campro 1.6L (which is better than MYVI that exist in 1.3L engine) can drives you forward. But, I think if the Neo built with light weight materials surely the 1.6L can gives the best moment for a drag session. Since the Neo has been built so; I guess by changing the Wheels from 16" to 15" or 14" will gives Neo more speed from the original design. However, some said the changes may cause your Neo to "fly" when you reaching 180km/h!! Huhu...

Based on many experts and Engineers from Proton itself, the high performance of CAMPRO can only be seen in the first five years; or may be less. Underperformance will cause you less power when trying to overtake and increase speed. Suggestion is; go to Proton Service Center; asked for reprogram the ECU. If still not working, sell lah!!LOL,

The interior looks better than old satria for me as the seat is more stylo and the back seat is quite big. The dashboard looks OK; everything OK lah!! The Audio somehow like the old proton series, sound pecah itu sudah confirm lah!! And Neo, it's hard to reach/getting a radio frequency.People suggest to change the audio and cd receiver to something better like DCX-100 with RS series or else.

Well, there's a lot more to write about this NEO however, lazy to type lah!!Anyone wants another story about neo; add my YM.
