Nampaknya dah heboh pasal rupa kereta Proton P3-21A baru ni. Ramai yang salah faham mengatakan model Proton P3-21A adalah peganti Proton Persona yang baru. Dan ramai mengatakan Proton Tuah akan menjadi rupa sebenar Proton P3-21A yang baru ni.

Sebenarnya, Proton P3-21A ini bukan peganti Proton Persona yang baru. Ianya adalah model baru dan bercirikan global. Ianya disahkan sendiri oleh MD Proton itu sendiri. Jadi memang ini bukan model peganti Proton Persona.

Dari apa yang aku lihat, agak berbeza dari apa yang aku dengar. Boleh aku katakan bentuk Proton P3-21A baru ni seakan-akan Honda City. Dan bukannya sebijik mengikut bentuk kereta proton Tuah.

Berikut adalah beberapa gambar spyshot yang aku kumpul dari beberapa web tempatan.

Siapa yang teringin nak beli kereta baru tu boleh kot gi tempah dari sekarang. Dengar kata, kereta ni akan dilancarkan lagi sebulan (mungkin Mac 2012).

It’s like a strip show, and now we’re nearing the end. The Proton P3-21A started off roaming the streets in black tape, then we saw uncovered shots that showed glimpses of the front,rear and cabin. More recently, a silver one was caught naked, but someone was in the way. Now, LYN forumer xhacker has posted up these pics of a completely undisguised P3-21A – no tape, no human shield.

One is a front three quarter view while the other shows the rear. The unit snapped is also in a blue-green colour that we don’t often see. According to the poster’s cousin’s friend, the source of the MMS, the pics were taken at Proton Tanjung Malim’s parking area, where units were shown to vendors. He adds that besides this hue, there’s a “Fire Red”, black and white.

Nothing more to comment on the looks, we’ve dissected it so much already. Oh, there’s a thin spoiler on the bootlid. To recap the previous episodes, click here to link to the silver spyshot post, which has a compilation of pics.

I noticed that in all the pics we’ve seen so far, none have badges. The only thing left to ask now is P3-21A, what’s your real name?

Some would have already seen this pic circulating on the Net. It shows a silver-coloured Proton P3-21A, without an inch of disguise on it. Although partially blocked by an attempt preventing the cameraman from getting a clean shot, we still get to see a fair bit of the upcoming sedan.

Remember this leaked shot of the yellow coloured P3-21A from last year? Well, this latest revelation confirms that what we’ve seen before is final – the headlamp design, the strip of daytime running lights underlining it, the bumper design and the grille seen here match the yellow car’s.

By the way, this is a departure from the face of the Tuah concept shown at KLIMS 2010. For instance, the bottom edge of the headlamps now join seamlessly with the grille, as opposed to the ‘W’ shape of the concept.

The lower bumper intakes now contribute to the ‘X’ shape look, compared to the ‘U’ of the concept. The same change was also made to the current gen Toyota Camry – facelift introduced the ‘X’ face.

Previous leaked shots also show a rear end that differs from the Tuah concept’s connected single piece “cyclops” look. We’ve also seen the upcoming C-segment sedan’s dashboardbefore – it’s neat and safe and in design, not likely to polarise opinions.

What we can see from the car’s profile are multi spoke alloys, wing mirrors with indicators, a rising belt line and a prominent feature line. The front wheel arches look rather swelled, too. What do you think of the P3-21A, design wise?
