Since its debut with Team PROTON R3 at the 2012 Sepang 1,000km enduro, where it finished second to the team’s Satria Neo R3, the four door Prevé R3 has constantly demonstrated its racing credentials.

The Prevé has been praised for its agile handling, exceptional stability and superior cornering speed, thanks to its Lotus bred ride & handling, as well as its excellent durability in the harsh and competitive racing environment.

It is the latest model in a long line of Proton cars to taste success on racetracks and rally courses around the world thanks to PROTON's dedicated motorsport arm - Race, Rally and Research, (known as R3).

The PROTON brand was lauded internationally when it finished one-two in the 2011 Asia Pacific Rally Championship as well as taking out the two-wheel drive division. Perth based Scotsman Alister McRae won the overall title from teammate, Queenslander Chris Atkinson. The team backed that up with two-wheel drive division Rally Malaysia victories in 2012 and 2013.

In 2012 PROTON were runners up in the Super 2000 category of the World Rally Championship, picking up wins in both the Swedish and Finnish rallies, two of the most iconic events in the WRC.

PROTON’s performance, strength, durability and technology has been proven time and time again in the ultra competitive motorsport landscape with three Malaysian Super Series Championships to add to the Asia Pacific and Malaysian Rally titles as well as the Sepang 1,000km enduro success.

The Prevé range comprises two models, the GX and GXR. The 5-speed manual Prevé GX is priced from $15,490 driveaway (for a limited time), while the turbocharged Prevé GXR with a CVT transmission is $23,990 driveaway.
