Proton has been the proud owner of Lotus cars since 1996 and has employed the expertise of the famous British sportscar brand to good effect in honing the driving dynamics of its models. It means that Protons like the Savvy city car and Satria supermini are more fun to drive than you might expect.

The Proton Satria GTi is particularly adept and very affordable these days on the used car market. The Satria Neo is arguably Proton's most convincing model to date and was launched to replace the Satria in 2006. All models have a sporty feel and sharp styling and while build quality isn't the greatest, it's a pre-owned model that would be a good first car option for younger drivers. The GEN-2 is a larger Proton somewhere between the mainstream supermini and family hatch classes in size. Used cars aren't particularly common but there's a good specification and a five-door body bringing extra practicality. One of the more unusual Protons that used second hand buyers might encounter is the Jumbuck, a small front-wheel-drive pick-up truck.
