Proton prices cut to 1989 levels

PROTON is slashing the price of its whole UK range for a three-month sale which puts the car back at 1989 prices. Taking into account inflation, Proton says its models are priced exactly as they were when introduced in the UK 10 years ago.

The offer, which applies to all fleets, is part of the company's 10th anniversary celebrations and will only run up until the arrival of the T-plate in March when normal 1999 prices will resume. The on-the-road price of the Persona 1.6 XLi four-door has dropped from £11,899 to £10,299, a saving of £1,600, with similar savings throughout the Persona range. At the top of the range the 133bhp Persona 1.8 Coupe has fallen in price by £1,600 £12,599. The Compact is also reduced, with the base model 1.3GLi down from £7,999 to £7,299.

Even greater savings can be made if automatic transmissions are fitted, which until March are free on all vehicles, a saving of £695 for the GLSi models and £850 for the higher-trim level vehicles. All vehicles are covered by three years' free servicing, three years' total vehicle warranty and three years' RAC membership.
