December 1, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
From November 27th, Al-Haj Automotive has been quietly watching while other carmakers raised the pricing of their automobiles. The new costs for the Proton Saga have finally been published by the company.
Although just one car has received a price increase, the increase is Rs. +224,000 over the entire portfolio, which is rather substantial. It takes effect instantly.
The first batch of domestically produced Saga vehicles has been delivered to Proton Pakistan dealers throughout the country. It’s a low-cost entry-level sedan marketed as a replacement for hatchback buyers who would have bought the Toyota Vitz, Honda Fit, or Suzuki Swift.
The Standard Manual, Standard Auto, and Premium Auto are the three major varieties available in Pakistan. A 1299 cc naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine with 94 horsepower and 120 Nm of torque is available in all models. Depending on the version, the engine will be mated with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
In comparison to the Completely Built-Up (CBU) variations, the locally built Saga offers the following extra features:
|A comfortable center console with an armrest
|Parking sensors at the front for convenience
|Body-roll is reduced by using a strut tower brace.
|On the boot lid, there is an NVH guard.
|The bonnet has an NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness) protection.
