With the latest fantastic deals on a choice of a new five door city car, five door hatchback, four door saloon or a sporty supermini, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal than on a brand new Proton car this spring.

Set out in Style this spring

Big queues and small parking spaces, city driving can be tough. Not with the Proton Savvy. With a 1.2L engine, reverse distance sensors, a spacious interior, a boot capacity of 909 litres with the seats down and ABS with EBD as standard, the Savvy is small and perfectly formed to cut through the traffic and nip into the smallest parking spaces.

Choose the Savvy Style model and get 15” alloy wheels, air conditioning, front fog lamps and electric front windows plus £750 off the list price until 30th June 2008. That’s a great big deal on a great little car.

New Proton GEN-2, new offers for spring

If you thought that all family cars were the same – think again. Whether you favour the stylish hatchback or the refined four door saloon, the GEN-2 will leave a lasting impression. With engineering courtesy of sister company, Lotus, its 1.6 litre 16v CamPro engine delivers competitive horsepower and acceleration figures, while its Lotus-inspired design complemented by eye-catching details and a host of extras as standard make it a pleasure to own as well as drive. Who says a family car isn’t fun to drive?

The GEN-2 has never been more affordable: with £500 off the list price, the GEN-2 1.3 and 1.6 GLS MT models are now available from just £8,495 OTR. Or choose a GEN-2 1.6 GSX model with climate control with pollen filter, twin side airbags, electric door mirrors, electric rear windows, front fog lamps and tailgate spoiler, and get £1,000 off the list price plus a leather interior worth £1,000 absolutely free.

Or perhaps the new GEN-2 saloon is more your style, with our launch offer of £1,000 off the list price until 30th June 2008. In this latest addition to the GEN-2 range, expect all the standard features such as the integrated MP3 capable Blaupunkt radio/CD player, climate control with pollen filter, electric windows, front fog lamps and electric door mirrors. Add to this the 430 litres of separate boot space, chrome number plate garnish and rear boot spoiler and you’ll want to be the first to test drive the brand new GEN-2 saloon this spring, now from only £9,795 OTR.

The ultimate 3 door supermini for less

The Lotus inspired Satria Neo, with its distinctive design and array of safety features is now available with an irresistible £750 off 1.6 GSX models. The top of the range 1.6 GSX is available in both manual and automatic and boasts 0-60 in 11.5 seconds and 111bhp, along with an impressive top speed of 118mph. Prices now start from just £9,245 on the road and include 16-inch alloy wheels with Continental Sport tyres, climate control, electric mirrors, front fog lamps and a rear spoiler.

As well as Lotus designed brakes and suspension, the Satria Neo boasts a CamPro 4-cylinder 16V multi-point injection engine, developed in collaboration with Lotus. As you'd expect from a company that designs and builds high performance cars, this is an engine that packs a serious punch. Twin airbags, remote central locking and alarm, reverse distance sensors and trip computer are also included as standard. The centrally mounted exhaust, halogen head lamps and sloping bonnet leading to its distinctive front grille, complete the Satria Neo’s sporty look and with prices starting at just £9,995 it’s sure to make an impression.
