The 2016 Proton Perdana will continue being based on the eighth generation Honda Accord, but gets a fully redesigned interior and exterior.

The new Perdana is reportedly 150 mm longer than the outgoing model, and features a comprehensive facelift that includes teardrop-shaped glasshouse, shark-fin antenna, boot-lid spoiler, prominent wheel arches, and angular styling for the head and tail lamps and front fender vents.

The 2016 Perdana will retain Honda’s R20A3 2.0-litre engine that produces 154 hp of maximum power and 189 Nm peak torque, as well as the K24Z2 2.4-litre i-VTEC motor with 177 hp and 222 Nm. Both variants will be offered with a five-speed automatic transmission.
