After our encounter with the Exora back in August, we were left with good vibes although we found the engine lacking in the power department. Our editor attributed that to the lower octane fuel used in Jakarta. So have things improved with the higher octane fuel available here?

The local MPV market can be a scary place for a new kid like the Proton Exora, having to contend with giants like the Toyota Wish that has the majority MPV pie squarely in its coffers. Thankfully for the Exora, being priced at an affordable $68,999 puts it nearly $20,000 out of the Toyota’s target range.

Although the Exora won’t be compared directly with the undisputed ‘king’ of local MPVs, it can still expect stiff competition from MPVs in the $60,000 to $70,000 range. But its size, engine and seating capacity has it in the sights of Suzuki’s APV.

The Exora is a significant development for Proton as a company. For the first time, a design was developed solely by the national manufacturer without any hand holding from other manufacturers. At long last, Malaysians can now choose an MPV that’s been produced by the national manufacturer but not only that, it is one that they can truly call their own.

On first impressions, the Exora looks to be a clone of the Mazda 5. Not only do they look similar in terms of side profile, they’re practically identical from a front quarter perspective. Although to accuse Proton of swiping design cues from Mazda would be crass.
