New Proton Ertiga MPV details revealed

Here it is, the Proton Ertiga. In what has been a very busy year for Proton, this is the fourth and final product launch for the national carmaker after the Perdana, Persona and Saga introductions in June, August and September respectively.

The Ertiga name was confirmed earlier today in a teaser video by Proton, which means that not only is the MPV a straightforward rebadge of the Suzuki Ertiga (just like the Mazda VX-1), even the donor car’s name has been maintained. By the way, this will be the first ever Proton, whether homegrown or based on something else – to not have an original name. A Proton Ertiga R3 anyone?

The Ertiga is a rebadged Suzuki Ertiga facelift, with knock down kits coming from Suzuki in Indonesia. Our ASEAN neighbour is the regional production hub for this model – Suzuki exports the Ertiga as a CBU model to the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam to the tune of 800 to 1,000 units per month, but this is its first CKD export order. The Japanese company expects orders of around 1,500 units per month from Proton, to be assembled in the under-utilised Tanjung Malim plant.
