Which used Proton Impian saloon should I buy?

On the used market, you've got the choice of just one engine - a 102bhp 1.6-litre petrol - and two trim levels, GLS and GSX. All models have air-con, all-round electric windows, a CD player and powered door mirrors. The range-topping GSX adds a six-CD changer and leather seats.

As for safety kit, all models have twin front and side airbags, anti-lock brakes and traction control.

The only option buyers may want to look out for is a four-speed automatic gearbox, but there aren't that many used examples about. And, if you can find one, expect to pay a small premium.

We'd opt for the manual, though, because it's a nice, neat 'box with a positive action and makes the most of the engine's lethargic performance.
