The new variants are bestowed with body kits and the Persona Executive gets different front and rear fascias. The FLX Executive gets its looks from the SE variant, offering smoked clear lens LED rear combination lights and 14-inch alloy wheels while the top-end Persona Executive is based on the SV variant and incorporates 15-inch alloy wheels and chrome exhaust finisher. Both variants sport foglamps.

On the inside, the dashboard designs vary. Both models come with black leather upholstery, Yes 4G Huddle mobile hotspot and multi-function steering wheel but surprisingly the more expensive Persona Executive lacks electrically adjustable ORVMs that are available on the Saga FLX Executive.

The Persona Executive derives power from a 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol motor that is capable of 110 bhp and 148 Nm of torque, and is mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Features like ABS and dual airbags are standard across the variants while the Persona Executive gets disc brakes on all wheels.

    Hi,

    I believe there is a mistake in this article; the ‘Saga Persona Executive’ does not exist, there is only ‘Persona Executive’ (the car in black above) and ‘Saga FLX Executive’ (silver car). The name ‘Persona’ is the model name, and ‘Executive’ is the trim variant. The same goes for the other car; ‘Saga FLX’ is the model name, ‘Executive’ is the trim line.

    Best regards.

      yep. Almost the same but the inside has more legroom.
      The SV ( super value) version is the cheapest sedan in malaysia. Price tag at 34k myr @ 640k INr. At least dual airbag as standard.
