LAUNCH DAY HIGHLIGHTS: The Proton Suprima S was launched on Saturday, 17 August 2013, by Tun Dr Mahathir

PRE-LAUNCH DEVELOPMENTS: The Proton Suprima S was initially thought to be called 'Proton Prevé hatchback'

  • The upcoming Proton P3-22A, or the Preve Hatchback as we know it, will officially be called the Proton Suprima S, as this picture confirms. Proton filed to trademark the name, without the ‘S’ suffix, in January this year.


Sheikh Zaid saw the metallic blue car being used in a TV shoot in Sentral, Kuala Lumpur

  • It looks like it’s getting ever closer to the official launch of the Proton Preve Hatchback – we have a couple of snaps of the car taken by reader Sheikh Zaid, who caught this metallic blue example at Sentral.


  • All the cladding – save tape to mask the logos (front visible in pix, rear too presumably) – is gone, and there’s a reason for the undisguised car being in such a high traffic area; Sheikh says that a video crew was filming the car. Presumably, it’s a TVC shoot.


Rumours and speculations on the 'Proton Prevé hatchback'

  • For the Preve, Proton has been testing the five-door C-Segment hatch with heavy camouflage over the last year in Malaysia. The variant spied has very limited camouflage that helps understand the car’s styling in advance.


  • The Preve’s competitors are the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback, Honda Civic hatch and the Ford Focus. A 1.6-litre in-line four-cylinder gasoline unit that produces 107hp @ 5750rpm and 150Nm of torque @4000rpm sits under the bonnet.


  • It is matched to a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed Continuously Variable Transmission CVT.


  • Interested? Rumors said this model will only be launched at the end of this year (that's mean around 4 months to go).
