Proton Inspira

The much anticipated Proton Inspira was launched. Proton Inspira is the result of collaboration between Proton Holdings and Mitsubishi. It looks very similar to the Mitsubishi Lancer X. At a glance, there is no difference between Proton Inspira and Mitsubishi Lancer but when examined closer, there is a slight difference in the front design. The Proton Inspira has also been enhanced with Lotus DNA handling.

Proton Inspira, which available in 3 variants - Inspira 1.8 5-Speed manual transmission, Inspira 1.8 CVT 6-Speed auto transmission and 2.0 CVT 6-speed auto transmission. The 1.8-liter engine can produces up to 103 kW @ 6000 rpm while the 2.0-liter engine can produces 110 kW @ 6000 rpm. Among the 3 variants, the 1.8 Manual Transmission has the best performance. The top speed for Inspira 1.8 CVT and 2.0 CVT are 191 km/h and 198 km/h respectively while the 1.8 manual transmission can reach 202 km/h. The Inspira 1.8 CVT and Inspira 2.0 CVT can accelerate from 0 km/h to 100 km/h in 11.4s and 10.5s respectively while the 1.8 manual transmission can do it in 10.0s.

  5. no sad.


  6. once you step inside the driver seat.... can feel it is a proton quality not mitsubishi.


  7. People who complains the interior as "proton quality" obviously never sits in a's the same plasticky quality. But still better than some cheaper plastic seen in some other cars.

    Anyway, i have my Inspira 2.0cc for 6 it, no problems at all. Only one or two minor issues. No big deal. Best part is, i tarpau my friend's Forte 2.0 everytime...he so regret getting the Forte now...LOL.

  13. Test drove the Inspira. Engine is very silent at low rpm but become coarse when rev it a bit to higher rpm. According to sales agent, this is MIVEC characteristic. Then, I went to Mitsubishi showroom to try the Mitsubishi ASX, the engine sound solid when rev it to high rpm.
