Proton's free-fuel Satria deal

Extra fuel: Satria three-door comes with a Caltex fuel card this month.

Proton throws in $1200 worth of free fuel with its slow-selling Satria Neo hatch

20 May 2008

PROTON is offering Satria buyers an extra incentive to buy its almost forgotten light-car during May – $1200 worth of free petrol.

Buyers of the 1.6-litre three-door Satria Neo hatch will get Caltex fuel cards that, according to Proton, will cover more than half their petrol costs for the next 12 months.

Somewhat overshadowed by the Savvy, Gen.2 and new Persona models, the Satria Neo has accounted for only 15-20 sales per month since being launched in Australia early last year – despite the price dropping from $18,990 (drive away) to $16,990 (plus on-road costs).

Proton Cars Australia managing director John Startari said that the Satria Neo is arguably the best-value three-door sports hatch on the Australian market and that the fuel bonus makes it an even better deal.

“Our research has shown buyers are increasingly looking for cars that are more economical and fuel-efficient and that a fuel offer such as the Satria Neo deal only adds to the attractiveness of the car and its economy credentials,” said Mr Startari.

Satria Neo comes in GX and GXR grades. Both feature standard air-conditioning, ABS, dual front airbags and seatbelt pretensioners, power steering, power windows, power mirrors and remote central locking, while the GXR additionally gets 16-inch alloy wheels, climate-control and front foglights.

Early next year, Proton is expected to introduce a sporty R3 Satria hot-hatch model, which will be the successor to the previous generation’s highly acclaimed GTi model.
