“Our decision of voluntarily submitting this MPV for the MyVAP test goes to show the confidence that we have in the Exora and we are proud to be the first car company in Malaysia to have done it and concurrently kick-started this evaluation program. As the national car producer, we have a vital role to play in further developing the total eco-system of the automotive industry and as such our participation here in this evaluation would be one of the few ways of contributing towards the development of the industry here,” added Dato’ Syed Zainal Abidin.
“Of course we are very happy to have received such a recognition but nevertheless, we will continuously strive to improve further on our products for the consumers” Dato’ Syed Zainal Abidin concluded.

The assessment was done based on four pillars; namely the UNECE certification, Passive Safety Level, Active Safety Level and Production conformation. EXORA scored a total of 4.00 points which translates to a 4-star performance. With the findings, PROTON has learnt that the EXORA could be improved further by enhancing more safety features such as side airbags, curtain airbags and a pop-up bonnet.
