The Proton Ertiga (above) was a good drive and while it only had a 1.4liter 95ps 4cylinder engine, and a 4speed automatic it could easily carry people up and down a small hill easily. We managed to take it up Bukit Melawati in Kuala Selangor with six people inside without much issue. Here's the link to our test drive of the Proton Ertiga if you're interested.
So again, the Ertiga had so much going against it in terms of its looks, its badge and the perception that it was underpowered to some. The light coloured beige interior offered at launch didn't help at all too (and the slightly darker 2018 refreshed interior fabric may have come a bit too late).
