Model: Waja

Released: Dec 2001

Discontinued: Jul 2006

Model: Persona

Released: Nov 1996

Discontinued: Nov 2013

The Persona first appeared in Australia as the Wira, but both cars owe their existence to the 1992-1996 Mitsubishi CC Lancer. For 2008 Proton Cars revived the Persona nameplate for its second-generation small car based on the Gen.2 five-door hatch.

Model: Wira

Released: May 1995

Discontinued: Nov 1996

But cracking this market is extremely hard for established carmakers, let alone for up-start newcomers.
