Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

As a piece of engineering, the Proton Satria Neo can't really cut it against its direct supermini rivals. If you're tempted by one, only sign on the dotted line after you have thoroughly tested the car's rivals.

Ultimately, this is a purchase you justify solely on value for money, something Proton is renowned for. However, it doesn’t stop at the list price. There's a prominent section on the company's website detailing the latest special offers, and these have included things like free leather upholstery and discounts of as much as £2500 on certain models.

To save you the bother of constantly logging on, you can also supply your email address via the website, which will allow the company to keep you up-to-date with all the latest offers.
