If you have ever owned a Proton Persona and had to replace any parts then we would like to hear about your experience. Let us know how the parts performed when fitted. Write a short review in the comments box at the bottom of the page.

Proton Persona Overview

The Proton Persona is classed as a small family car and is produced by the Malaysian automobile manufacturing company Proton. The Persona name was used in the European and Australian markets from 1993 – 2007, and it was known as the Proton Wira elsewhere. From 2007-2010 the Persona name was used worldwide, whilst in the UK it was known as the Gen-2 Persona. The new Gen-2 Persona is quite good to drive and is a very comfortable ride. They are not very well refined and the overall performers are not good. These cars are reasonably well equipped and are cheap to buy but are not very reliable and don’t have good safety features. Does this sound anything like your experience of the Gen-2 Persona?

Proton Persona History

The Proton Persona (1993-2007) design was based on the Mitsubishi Lancer platform but with some in-house changes being made to make it distinctively a Proton. The Persona was available as a saloon and later in 1994 a hatchback version. In 1995 this car had a minor facelift which mainly affected the grille design. The hatchback version was replaced by the Gen-2 in 2004. In 2007 the second generation Persona was produced and it was only available as a 4-door saloon. This car was totally designed in house and was based on the Proton Gen-2. This version was known as the Proton Persona Gen-2 in the UK. The Persona ceased production in 2010.
