So it was reported that Malaysia’s Proton is on par with other premium vehicle brands like BMW. Our first reaction just like many others were shocked. However, when we decided to dig in for a serious analysis, Proton indeed has its advantages over BMW. Here’s 10 reasons why Proton can be better than BMW.
1) Proton is potentially safer
Simply because you can’t go any faster with it.
2) Proton is more affordable – of course.
With the same money, you get more Protons. And cheap spare parts too.
3) Proton’s car design is long lasting
With Proton, you will own the latest model for a long time. You don’t need to worry about your proton being replaced by a new model so often like BMW.
4) Proton’s air conditioner is tip top
Sounds legit as Proton should understand Malaysian weather better 😛
5) Proton is modification-friendly
You can modify it to look like any other car.
6) Proton can be what you want
Fancy Lancer or Accord? You can have them at a cheaper price without any modification under Proton. The next thing you know Proton might have a BMW-alike model too.
7) Car service convenience
We have to give this to Proton as they sure have a good spread of service centers all over in Malaysia.
8) Proton has more fancy colours
The beauty of colors like lime green, sky blue, is in the beholders’ eyes but for sure you can’t get them from BMW.
9) Proton is more friendly to drive around with
You can drive and park your proton anywhere you want. I mean, you will be more comfortable with your Proton getting scratched than your BMW right?
10) Proton has cool names for its models
And I can even remember some of them for life.
