The Proton Perdana will, reportedly, arrive in showrooms from Q1 2016.

The exterior of the Proton Perdana was teased in the presentation, which appears to look completely different from the Perdana seen on the roads today (basically a rebadged Honda Accord). It features a new pair of headlights with projector lens, LED daytime running light strips, redesigned grille with bold chrome slat and a contoured hood. The rear-end gets new taillamps identical to the one teased at a company event last October.

Inside, Proton has revealed that it will be equipped with features such as an infotainment touchscreen system with reverse camera and navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, power seat adjustability for the driver, and a manual tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. The Perdana will come equipped with airbags (no specific mention of how many), electronic stability control as well as ABS with EBD.
