Proton Saga 2021 have it’s own WOW factor. I mainly used it for my work as a salesman.

My customer and my colleage will feel proud for me, take their time to have a look  on my car, some even took pictures of it. I also lend my car to those who wanted to give it a small test drive for experienc.

We could actually afford a safe, comfy and spacious car ( can fit a 55inch TV in the boot) with a very affordable pricetag!
