PROTON SAGA IS COMPACT SEDAN OF THE YEAR AT THE DSF.MY & ALLIANZ GENERAL INSURANCE COMPANY'S VEHICLE OF THE YEAR AWARDS
Local motoring website Drive Safe and Fast (dsf.my) together with Allianz General Insurance Company recently held their VOTY or Vehicle of the Year awards. The new Proton Saga was awarded Compact Sedan of the Year.
The Saga is good value for money actually. I personally would recommend it to those that want to get the best bang for buck in terms of comfort and refinement. The car brings some much needed driving fun at the most affordable end of the market and for that it also gets my vote!
PROTON SAGA IS COMPACT SEDAN OF THE YEAR
Subang Jaya, – PROTON Holdings Berhad (“PROTON” or “the Company”) received another recognition for its Proton Saga, which won the Compact Sedan of the Year Award at the recent Vehicle of the Year Award.
