Take a drive in the Exora and its Lotus tuned chassis will immediately shines through. No, it isn't as agile as a Lotus Exige but for an MPV, it has nicely balanced ride and handling and a steering that is well tuned.

When it comes to styling, the Exora represents one of Proton's best efforts. But it is on the inside where the Exora really shines. The cabin offers comfortable seating for seven. There is generous space in the rearmost row to shame its Japanese and Korean MPV rivals. Access to the rearmost row is a breeze as well, thanks to the relatively long doors and the easy folding operation of the middle row seats. Moreover, passengers in both the second and third rows are spoilt with air-con vents, a feature that can only be found in more expensive models.

Fold the two rows of seats down and you'll get a big and voluminous load area that is completely flat, which makes it perfect for the occasional shopping spree at Ikea. There are also ample storage spaces all over the cabin that can be used to store small items and odds and ends.

In terms of safety, the Exora is suitably equipped with twin front airbags, seat belt pre-tensioners, ABS with EBD as well as security features like an immobiliser and alarm.

Despite its spaciousness, practicality and versatility, the Exora is reasonably priced and is even more affordable than some smaller and less practical Korean and Japanese models. When it comes to an MPV that is value-for-money, the Proton Exora is a package that is hard to beat.
