Festive ‘angpow’ gift from Proton
What say you on the issue below?
Handsome offer: Shaifullizam and his wife checking out the new Proton Perdana at the Proton Edar Platinum 3S (sales, service and spare parts) centre in Mutiara Damansara.
PETALING JAYA: National car maker Proton is having attractive sales promotions in conjunction with Chinese New Year, offering buyers rebates of up to RM12,000 depending on the models.
It is giving rebates of up to RM500 for the Saga and Persona; up to RM4,000 for the Exora; up to RM5,000 for the Preve and Perdana; up to RM9,300 for the Iriz; and up to RM12,000 for the Suprima S.
The rebates are applicable for bookings made by Jan 31.
Proton is also offering two years of free service, valued at more than RM1,000, for selected models.
“We are giving these special offers to our customers to celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Rooster. I believe these are great offers especially for the models that we launched in 2016,” said Proton CEO Datuk Ahmad Fuaad Kenali.
The new cars have received numerous accolades and recognition.
At the inaugural CarSifu Editors’ Choice Awards 2016, the Persona (Premium CVT model) took the Best Compact Car award while the Perdana 2.4-litre won Best Local Design.
Proton has also introduced various initiatives in its after-sales services.
Among them are the introduction of the MyProton app, seven-day servicing at 27 selected centres and a review of its spare parts prices to give better value to its customers.
“Our attention and focus is on our customers.
“Not only that, we are giving our customers better quality cars in terms of driving experience and safety, as well as better servicing and parts prices.
“The introduction of the MyProton app allows more flexibility for our customers to arrange for a test drive or to have their cars serviced,” he said.
Proton owners welcomed the attractive rebates and deals.
Among the customers at the Proton Edar Platinum 3S centre in Mutiara Damansara yesterday were systems analyst Shaifullizam Omar, 47, and his wife Noraliza Mat Arif, a private wealth adviser.
“The ongoing sales promotions is good,” said Shaifullizam, who was interested in buying the latest Perdana.
Office administrator Michelle Wong, 46, who was also checking out the Perdana, said the promotions were like getting an angpow.
“The RM5,000 rebate on the Perdana makes it even more attractive,” she added.
