Drivers will struggle to get comfortable. All models have a height-adjustable steering wheel and driver’s seat, but there’s too little travel on each and the raised driving position and low-set wheel make it hard to find the right balance. The dashboard layout is logical, but the centre console can be tricky to navigate at a glance.
Proton GEN-2 Saloon space & practicality
There’s decent legroom in both the front and rear, but the steeply sloping roofline compromises headroom. Even those of average height sitting in the back will find their necks craning forward to avoid touching the ceiling. The boot is a decent size and shape, but the Gen-2 does without a glovebox.
Proton GEN-2 Saloon equipment
The saloon has its own unique trim level, distinct from the hatchback's. On top of the basic GLS trim (which includes twin front airbags, air-conditioning, electric front windows and alloy wheels), the saloon has a rear boot spoiler, electric rear windows, front fog lamps and electric mirrors. The only option is a four-speed automatic gearbox.
