LANCER 2010 ...

We have just blown away with the new proton  model..inspira... it does not matter the name afterward..maybe after a few days the badge gonna change. from the look ,its all same except the trademark of proton  but i believe the handling of this model could be better.Look at the front..totally same with lancer..performance..hurmmmm cannot guess until i get my test drive...most of the people will buy the white colour. i guess..its quite good proton  have mitsu engine ..only one question in my mind why proton did not provide the car with signal at the side mirror..better than lancer ehh..or more extreme..have a glass which react with the hot climate ....maybe for vip..only
silver does not looks good for mitsu car..or even BMW...what do you think?

And the dashboard, bottom picture got better right?? sometimes im sick with the car maker,,,put another accessories,,and that will be the new model or new  ...what we always say..speeecial edition...its not proton only..all quite same..

A smart driver who’s made a smart decision.That’s the statement you’re making when you’re driving a Proton .With a vehicle that’s designed and engineered to give you a thrilling driving experience,
it’s easy to see why.Inspired by the sports sedan concept, just laying eyes onthe Proton will make your pulse race.Sport rims for a sportier look.Comfort .Compartments and Utilities.Useful ‘tuck away’ vanity mirror with
ticket holder.The large body of Proton allows for a roomier interior,which also means increased legroom and headroom for driver and passengers. Stretch out and expect a journey that’s comfortable,easier and more relaxing.

Engine Capability
Features a lightweight aluminium block for better effi ciency and MIVEC technology for more aggressive starts and maximum high-range output.Surprises can spring from any part of the road. Rest assured, you will
be prepared for the unexpected. ABS The Proton has ISOFIX mounting points for child seats to ensure the
safety of children passengers.Dual SRS Airbags .Protects both driver and front passenger from severe injuries
in the event of a collision. It also helps to slow down head and chest movement during a sudden crash.Solar and Security Tinted Film Extra protection against glass smash or attempted break-in.Solar heat rejection of up to 56% and UV protection of up to 99%.Maximum light transmissionfiltering that complies withthe regulations of the Road Transport Act.
The Warning Buzzer helps to remind passengers to fasten their seatbelts and to check the engine and
battery level.Light Sensor The Anti-trap Power Window technology will detect an
object in the path of the closing window and reverse the direction.
*Auto Cruise Control at the steering wheel automatically controls speed to help avoid unintentional speeding and driving fatigue. It’s designed to enhance driving comfort and the performance of your Proton .Trunk Lid Remote Release will unlock the boot at the touch of a button. The Electric Door Mirror Adjustment Electronically adjusts the door mirror with a press of a button.

Proton Inspira use GS Platform based

The GS platform (also known as "Project Global" by Mitsubishi) is a compact car platform co-developed by Mitsubishi Motors and DaimlerChrysler, which underpins the companies' compact cars. After DaimlerChrysler and Mitsubishi went their separate ways in 2004, DaimlerChrysler made substantial changes to the platform. The modified GS platform is now called JS platform by DCX for mid-size cars and PM/MK for compact cars. All cars from Mitsubishi using the GS platform are made in Japan, starting with the 2005 Mitsubishi Outlander crossover SUV. PM/MK vehicles from Chrysler are assembled at Belvidere Assembly in Belvidere, Illinois (Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass) and JS Vehicles at the Sterling Heights Assembly (Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Avenger). Chrysler currently states that the Sebring and Avenger are not using the GS platform, though that was their starting point.

The Mitsubishi 4B1 engine is a range of all-alloy straight-4 engines built at Mitsubishi's Japanese "World Engine" powertrain plant in Shiga on the basis of the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance (GEMA). Although the basic designs of the various engines are the same, their exact specifications are individually tailored for each partner (Chrysler, Mitsubishi, and Hyundai). The cylinder block and other basic structural parts of the engine were jointly developed by the GEMA companies, but the intake and exhaust manifolds, the cylinder head’s intake and exhaust ports, and other elements related to engine tuning were independently developed by Mitsubishi.

All engines developed within this family have aluminium cylinder block and head, four valves per cylinder, double overhead camshaft layouts, and MIVEC continuous variable valve timing. The 4B1 engine family is the first to have the continuously variable valve timing MIVEC system applied not only to its intake valves but also to its exhaust valves. The intake and exhaust cam timing is continuously independently controlled and provide four optimized engine operating modes.

Still No idea What Mivec is 

MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system) is the brand name of a variable valve timing (VVT) engine technology developed by Mitsubishi Motors. MIVEC, as with other similar systems, varies the timing of the intake and exhaust camshafts which increases the power and torque output over a broad engine speed range while also being able to help spool a turbocharger more quickly.
MIVEC was first introduced in 1992 in their 4G92 powerplant, a 1,597 cc naturally aspirated DOHC 16 valve straight-4. At the time, the first generation of the system was named Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing and lift Electronic Control. The first cars to use this were the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback and the Mitsubishi Lancer sedan. While the conventional 4G92 engine provided 145 PS (107 kW; 143 hp) at 7000 rpm, the MIVEC-equipped engine could achieve 175 PS (129 kW; 173 hp) at 7500 rpm. Similar improvements were seen when the technology was applied to the 1994 Mitsubishi FTO, whose top-spec GPX variant had a 6A12 1997 cc DOHC 24 valve V6 with peak power of 200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp) at 7500 rpm. The GR model, whose otherwise identical powerplant was not MIVEC-equipped, produced 180 PS (132 kW; 178 hp) at 7000 rpm by comparison.
Although initially designed to enhance performance, the system has subsequently been developed to improve economy and emissions, and has been introduced across Mitsubishi's range of vehicles, from the i kei car to the high-performance Lancer Evolution sedan.
Newest developments have led to MIVEC system being evolved into a continuous variable valve timing and also being the first VVT system to be used into a passenger car diesel engine.
