FULL REVIEW: New Proton Perdana range

In this blog entry, I'm reviewing "Accordana".   The Perdana's launched back in June 2016.  Apparently, this Perdana reminds me of the Korean Movie 200lbs beauty (more on this later).  It's the Same 2008 Accord with No changes Allowed by Honda Apart from 2.0 re-skinned Half-leather and Re bodied by Bufori which makes the car 5 metres long.

Proton came up with the tagline "Like the looks.Love the Drive."



It's priced to sell at:

I had a brief 5km driving both the 2.0 and 2.4 in 2 different showrooms.  The Perdana's launched back in June 2016. Like the 2006 Korean movie, the 200lbs beauty, the 200lbs lead Actress Hanna played by Kim A-joong had plastic surgery and weight loss transformation to become Jenny.  Photo source: Wikipedia.

Despite using Jenny, as her new identity, her voice and personality's still the SAME as before.  So this Accordana's No difference.  Driving both the 2.0 and 2.4 reminded me of an Old Friend last met/driven 2008 who had plastic surgery. 

The Ride and handling, performance and interior's Exactly the same as my Test drive experience of the Accord back in 2008.  What a shame Proton Not allowed to tinker with the Ride and Handling.  Cause Lotus could have improved the Ride and Handling.  The only thing Proton Perdana improved upon is the Sound-proofing.  Due to longer rear overhang, boot space enlarged slightly from 450 litres to 475 litres.  I feel the 2.0 variant more fun to drive and the black interior more classy and eye-pleasing.  Sadly, the 2.0 missed out on VSA (Traction Control) and Paddle shifters.

End of Test drive review as I only have 5km test drive for both variants.

Without further ado, let's proceed to my Youtube playlist:

Let's proceed to my photo gallery:

Start of Accord 2.0 






 Above and below, In my opinion the 2.0 Seats looks Much better and classier than the 2.4 Seats.  The 2.4 interior's Directly lifted from Accord 3.5 V6.



Boot space extended from 450 litres to 475 litres thanks to longer overhang.

END OF Accord 2.0.

Start of Accord 2.4P:
