In a digital launch event, Proton Pakistan eventually unveiled the much-anticipated sedan, Proton Saga. After the Proton X70, the Saga is Proton’s second vehicle in Pakistan. Standard Manual Transmission, Standard Auto Transmission, and Ace Auto Transmission are the three models of Al-Haj Proton’s Saga sedan.
A unique aspect of Saga’s launch in Pakistan is that Al-Haj Motors has also released a limited-edition Sports version of the vehicle called R3 which was created to give Pakistanis a glimpse of Proton’s motorsports vehicles. Just 100 CBU units of this variant are available from Al-Haj Proton.
In the local market, Proton Saga faces stiff competition. Honda City, Toyota Yaris, Suzuki Cultus, KIA Picanto, and Changan Alsvin are among the competitors.

The Proton Saga is a promising entry into the inexpensive sedan market. However, since this is one of the most crowded segments of the local economy, this Proton competitor would have to win its place.
