Hit the Road Running With Proton Cars
Finding the right Proton car for your needs doesn't have to be difficult. On eBay, you'll find a fantastic selection of Proton street cars for sale for affordable prices. A one-owner Proton car may be a fine choice for a family. Whether you're buying new or used Proton cars, look through the listings and photographs on eBay to discover the car that will fit into your life.Seats vary a lot between models
If you're thinking of carrying large loads in your Proton, then make sure you know how the seats fold. Some models, such as the Savvy, split 50-50, while the seats in the Satria are divided 60-40. Some Proton Persona cars, meanwhile, have front seats with scalloped backs, improving the leg room for rear-seat passengers. This model has 60-40 folding seats only on some trim levels. In general, Proton street cars put the accent on practicality, so you can generally expect their seats to be comfortable, yet fairly conventional in design. Height adjustment is found mostly on newer models in the range.What should you check on a used Proton Satria?
When looking at a Proton Satria for sale on eBay, make sure it's exactly what you're after and in the condition you want. In particular, look at:
- Wheels: Some Satria models were available with alloy wheels, which can make the car look pretty smart.
- Electricals: Photos showing the headlamps and rear lights in operation are worth checking carefully.
- Options: The Satria offered a wide range of extras, from cruise control to climate control, so always read the full descriptions.
You might not think a small hatchback would have attracted the help of a company like Lotus, but in fact, the Savvy, produced between 2005 and 2012, did just that. It's a compact car, just over 3.7 metres in length - though check the manufacturer site for details. When considering Proton cars for sale in this class, ensure that the 1.2-litre engine has been regularly serviced, and check to see whether the interior space is enough for your needs. Photos can help a lot here, as can asking appropriate questions. It's also good to check that the rear seats can fold down fully.How versatile are Proton Jumbuck pickups?
Proton's Jumbuck model, produced for a few years from 2003, is the firm's only foray into the pickup market. With most Proton cars, 5-door models are emphasised, for simple and straightforward family transport. The Jumbuck was based on the Persona and retains a considerable amount of that model's styling. It's designed for light use, not to replace a van, but it can be a practical option if you often need to carry furniture or the like.
