What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For The Impian is better equipped than more costly rivals, and it rides and handles well

Against The engine is weak and noisy by class standards, and cabin space is tight

Verdict It's well equipped and adequate to drive, but the lacklustre engine makes progress very slow

Go for… Manuals

Avoid… Autos

Proton Impian Saloon
  • 1. Watch out for flimsy trim, and worn plastics and switchgear on high-mileage models
  • 2. There have been immobiliser problems, particularly on the higher-spec GSX models
  • 3. The boot is a good size, and the rear seat splits and folds
  • 4. The Mitsubishi engine is well proven, and if serviced correctly, should give no problems
  • 5. There’s no reach adjustment on the steering wheel, and the driver’s seat could do with more support
