Proton's first home-grown MPV
Designed in Malaysia by Malaysians, the Exora is a culmination of several years of meticulous research and development by Proton. As with the Waja, GEN.2 and Satria Neo, the Exora shares the same tried and tested 1.6 litre CamPro CPS. This engine utilizes two ingenious technologies, CPS (Cam Profile Switching) and VIM (Variable Intake Manifold technology), to give a relatively high power output and rapid response, whilst maintaining a fuel efficient delivery.

The CPS engine for the Exora will be tuned slightly different than other Proton models to take into account the practical purpose of the MPV, which is to transport up to seven adults including a maximum of 50kg of luggage at a safe and steady pace.

The Exora is designed to make those long trips with the family a breeze. The key to this is the Lotus-tuned ride and handling that gives the driver a sure-footed, yet comfortable drive on the highway and those twisty countryside roads.

In terms of safety, driver and front-seat passenger will appreciate Exora‟s standard safety features which include twin front airbags - standard in both the Medium-Line and High-line - and front seat-belt pretensioners. Other standard safety features are Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force distribution (EBD) to help the vehicle come to a quick and safe stop should the need ever arise.

To top it all off, the Exora offers an extremely strong passenger cell and computer-aided designed crash structure which has helped this MPV to achieve the equivalent of Euro-NCAP 4-star safety rating requirements.

Other cutting edge technologies present in the Exora include a hybrid high-strength "front-end module" and hydro-formed steel components. All these technologies help the Exora shed weight without compromising on its strength and safety.

On the inside, Proton's major technological improvement in the Exora is demonstrated by the improved sound-proofing technology which allows driver and passengers to have conversations without having to raise their voices.

As an added comfort and driving pleasure for long journeys, the Exora offers 10 bottle holders strategically located to keep drink bottles within easy reach of driver and passengers. For large luggage items, the Exora offers ample space, with its six different seat folding configurations adding more storage flexibility when required.

One of the outstanding features of the Exora is an electronic device called the Body Control Module (BCM). This feature is usually found in more expensive European makes. The Exora is the first Proton car to be equipped with BCM and it offers a whole new range of options and gadgets to enhance the vehicle's practicality and safety.

BCM offers over 20 different functions, from "follow me home lights", to programmable door locking configurations and wiper speeds, to automatic hazard light activation during emergency braking from above 96km/h and many more.

The Exora will be launched in Suntec City Entertainment Atrium (Outside Carrefour) on the 17th of July followed by a three-day roadshow at the same venue.

Proton Showrooms will, therefore, be closed during the said period.

The Proton Exora Medium-line (AT) will have a list price of $57,999 including COE.
