Proton’s cut-price hatchback offer
PROTON, owner of Lotus, moves into March with a £1,700 price reduction on its Satria Neo range of three-door hatchbacks. The Malaysian budget brand benefits from Lotus tuning of the ride and handling. The performance from the 111bhp, 1.6-litre petrol engine is adequate, with mpg around 43 with manual gears, and just under 40 with automatic shifting. Prices start at £8,495 and £9,295 respectively.
