The Proton Ertiga will be available in three variants: Executive MT, Executive AT and Executive Plus AT. Reflector type halogen headlamps, fog lamps (front and rear), electrically adjustable door mirrors, parking sensors (rear), rear wiper and 15-inch wheels will be standard.
The top-end variant adds chrome trim for the front fog lamp housing, power adjustment for and LED turn signals on the door mirrors, extra under-bonnet insulation, steering-mounted audio controls, chrome interior door handles, driver's seat height adjustment, two dashboard tweeters (in addition to four speakers) and seat-back pockets.
The Proton Ertiga has a 4-star crash safety rating from ASEAN NCAP. Safety features include dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, side impact beams and two ISOFIX anchors, but ESC won't be offered. Four colour choices will be available: Ruby Red, Carnelian Brown, Metal Grey and Cotton White.
