Mid-range version introduced for Proton Inspira - 2.0 Executive

The slow-selling Proton Inspira has been given an intermediate variant that combines the power of the MIVEC 2.0L with the pared-down specification of the 1.8L version.  We also heard that the 1.8 CVT has been discontinued so if you want the 1.8L version of Inspira, you have to settle down with the manual shifter. We think this is the strategic move to distance away Proton Inspira 1.8 CVT from the recently launched Proton's homegrown Preve.

Specification wise, the car continues to be powered by MIVEC 2.0L with CVT gearbox equipped with paddle shifter. However, the exterior addenda found on the 2.0 Premium version such as the skirting and spoiler has been eliminated. Alloy wheel too has been given a new design. Leather seat meanwhile is unfound. The introduction of this new variant also marks the entrance of Elegance Brown color to the Inspira range. Price has been set at RM86,800, a smidgen more than the 1.8 Executive CVT which was priced at RM85,015.

Meanwhile, there is no official news from Proton yet about this new version, although the advertisement is already up on Mudah.my.
