Suprima S able to withstand even the toughest challenges
DURING its developmental phase, the Proton Suprima S underwent a series of rigorous tests. The car was taken to Sweden to undergo a cold test to ensure that could still perform in harsh -40°C weather.
Proton’s Homologation and Testing team also took the car to the deserts of Oman to test the car in extreme conditions, where the heat can rise to a scorching a 40°C to 60°C.
The Suprima S also underwent further testing at the Australian Automotive Reserach Centre in Victoria, Australia. There, the Suprima S was awarded the maximum five-star safety rating in the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP), with the implementation of the Hot Press Forming (HPF) technology in its body being one of the contributing factors.
The HPF process begins when the sheet metal is heated to around 900°C for approximately five minutes.
