The Malaysian car manufacturer Proton has introduced free dual controls on the GEN-2 GLS and GSX range, targeting the driving schools and private driving instructor market.
Proton is currently offering both the 1.3 and 1.6 GEN-2 models with free dual controls worth £500 and free metallic paint. The popular special offers of 0% finance or £1 deposit have recently been extended and are available across the entire range until 30 September 2005.
Stephen Picton from the publication Driving Instructor recently test drove the GEN-2 and commented:
"With prices starting at £8,795 on the road for one of the most astonishingly well-equipped cars in the segment, the GEN-2 is really something to shout about for instructors looking for a more spacious tuition car. Its sporting style exudes confidence way above its budget."
Both GLS and GSX models have, as standard, air conditioning, power-assisted steering, two airbags, reverse distance sensors, remote central locking with alarm and engine immobiliser, a Blaupunkt radio/CD player and, alloy wheels for a sporty-looking finish.
