The Review

Was driving the Exora CPS for 1.5yrs and traded in for New Exora CFE (Bold). Very stable vehicle with good space. Made few comfortable trips to KL. Trip also include to Genting and Cameroon with 5 members. The seating positions are very comfortable and doesn't feel any tiredness. The lack of power in CPS engine is overcomed by the CFE engine which kicks in Turbo at 2000RPM and with CVT gear box (engine redesigned with the help of Lotus). Driving the CFE for about 8 months now and so far no issues. Warranty covered in Malaysia also [you know what I mean :)] Able to get 100km for 8.7 to 9.3 liters (based on the Car fuel calculator). Comes in 16in tyres with all Disc brakes. Good room space for 7 members (the 3rd row not for fully grown ups, but better than Toyota Wish or other 1.8 liters). Overall, the Exora CFE(BOLD) is a good all rounder and a family car among that category and moreover value for money.

Strengths

The price.
The ride in SAT mode.
Good Handling.
Seating positions and comfort.
Inbuilt roof DVD and 3rd row A/c vent.
Built in Reverse Camera LCD in Rear view.

Weaknesses

The plastic interiors.
Average Sound proofing (improved compared to old CPS version).
The front design.

The Review

My mum in law owns a M-Line.After the initial first service(Which is less than 900km!),I bring the car to Proton JB using Fully synthetic engine oil and bought myself a set of iridium spark plugs from a aftermarket shops.Before that i already change to a modified drop in Simota filter for better flow.Other upgrades including factory fitted fog lights,DVD player and leather seats which cost around RM2250.Cars now a bit smoother with 7 on board and notice the powerband kicks in at 2.5k rpm instead of usual 3k rpm(100kmh).Cruising at speed of 110-120 is much better as there's less engine noise to heard of.Air con temp is slightly above low with fan blowing at 1st speed only!(Save fuel).Cornering at 90kmh is surprisingly good as it was tuned by Lotus.Less bodyroll for a big size MPV!Rims already upgrade to 16x7inch alloy with Dunlop 205/55-16 tyres(RM850 after trade in) over the puny 15 with 195/65 tyres.Notice during the initial running in period the pick up is rather slow and consume a bit lot of fuel(average 9.5-10KM per litre at speed of 90-100kmh)After the running in and servicing fuel consumption improved to an average 10.5-11.5km per litre based on 50% urban/50% highway)Hopes Proton will bring over the turbocharged version next year to Singapore as i'm planning to get one probably.Price should be reduced too.Definately recommend for those looking into budget MPV.
