2009 Proton Exora H LINE 1.6 DOHC from Malaysia
Reasonably priced, stylish, well equipped MPV people mover
The only thing that comes to my attention is the front spotlights are broken, both within a month of getting the car, no major contact with any hard objects or stones, probably poor quality of plastic covering material.
There is a slight vibration/wind noise?, don't know the location of this problem, intermittently when driving on the highway.
This is my first MPV, always driving saloon cars; got it because my children are grown, and have cousins of theirs staying with us during school holidays.
This is a real people mover; 7-8 people can be comfortably transported. The seats can be folded to suit your needs, not a bench seat suitable for small children only, like in other MPVs and SUVs.
The accessory gadgets are numerous, equivalent to those available in high end vehicles.
Fuel consumption is extremely good, monitored via the on board computer. Recent travel of 1000km with 70% highway driven gives 9.3L/100km.
A five year warranty is very reassuring.
The power of the engine comes in at 3000rpm; a high revving vehicle with adequate power. Am sure you do not want to speed around with 6-7 kids in the MPV!
Stylish and modern looking, sitting high is a bonus. So comfortable are the leather seats, that I tend to get sleepy on long distance drives, compared to if I am driving my saloon car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

At last, got comments from the Exora auto version.. thanks for the honest thoughts.. so people won't hesitate to purchase an Exora... I am really interested in this machine, so after reading your comments, many people will be more interested as well.. how about the pick up and ride?
Before I bought the Exora, went checking out the other MPVs, (Livinia, Chitra, uUser, Innova,)... nothing in the price range, range, with the spec of accessories and 5 year warranty, and of course the looks. Of course the other high end MPVs are not in the below 100K price. Did not check Citroen, Renault, Chevrolet.
Can this MPV travel to Genting Highlands Resort with 7 passengers in it?
Took it to Cameron Highlands with the crazy weekend jam (2 hours) going all the way up. No overheating and no problem.
