Proton Satria (C96/C97/C98/C99). 1995–2006 (prod. n/a). 3-door sedan. F/F, 1298. 1468, 1598, 1834 cm³ (I4 OHC), 1834 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Malaysian licensed version of the Mitsubishi Mirage (1991–5), but with new front-end styling (and, with a later revision, new rear-end styling, too). Name meant knight in Sanskrit. GTi model had Lotus—a Proton subsidiary at the time—work on it, creating a fairly credible entry in the hot-hatch market; R3 was one more notch above that. The rest of the range still had decent handling and good engines of Mitsubishi origin, though interiors could have been better. Exported to UK as Proton 300 series.

Manufacturing locations: Pekan, Pahang, Malaysia; Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia

Marque: Proton | Model: Proton Satria | Successor: Proton Satria Neo
