Touted as Australia’s seven-seat people-mover, the Proton promises plenty of space for dollar.

But, there’s a While the value equation is the quality isn’t quite

We spent a week in the base Exora GX and while there certainly things to like, it all roses.

Quality: From the you settle into the Exora’s seat, it’s obvious cabin quality has suffered Proton’s efforts to keep low.

There are plenty of plastics with jagged lines, the urethane steering feels hard and nasty, the plastics are hard and so are the door

Comfort: Front seat though isn’t too bad. are fold-down armrests and a tall position that affords a view of the road ahead, and vision isn’t bad either.

though that the steering adjusts only for tilt, not

The second row slides fore and aft and the floor means having across the bench is a realistic (though the Exora’s width it’s best that slim-hipped).

And, at this the roof-mounted DVD entertainment screen is a and means backseaters can be easily on long trips.

The third row is pretty lacklustre Yes, there are roof-mounted to keep your two rearmost cool, but the seats themselves no headrests and the base cushioning is too soft.

Third-row legroom is lacking unless you push the row all the way forward, and even young won’t be comfortable back for long.

Equipment: The base GX has power windows, power manual air-conditioning and steering controls for its audio system. phone integration is also but there’s no audio streaming.

Exora models come with a roof-mounted DVD player, can also read media an SD card or USB key. For many buyers, this may be the Exora’s card.

Note: GXR leather trim

Storage: With the 50/50 third-row seats raised, enough room for a normal of shopping bags. Drop and luggage capacity swells

With the two rearmost rows down you get a mostly flat area that can swallow up a bit of cargo.

You’ll find a bag hook in the front passenger as well as two gloveboxes.

There are a number of other storage dotted around the cabin and even third row passengers some storage space of own (as well as a cupholder each.

The Exora is available with one and one transmission: a 103kW/205Nm turbocharged 1.6 petrol four and a continuously-variable gearbox (CVT).

The engine is surprisingly strong, and well even with a of passengers aboard. Though got ‘only’ 205Nm, it’s all the way from 2000-4000rpm — the of the rev range you’ll spend the of your time in.

The CVT is less

It’s slow to respond accelerating from a standing indecisive when faced hills and reluctant to kick It’s also very, noisy.

Refinement: The Exora’s construction and relative lack of doesn’t do it any favours in terms of

The cabin is loud and boomy at speeds, and the CVT makes a hell of a when it’s working

Even at a light cruise drivetrain noise aplenty, a slight whine becoming around 100km/h. It sounds the differential, and we hope it’s

Ride and Handling: The Exora’s is definitely directed toward the end of the spectrum, and so it should be.

The 16-inch stock provides a supple over poor roads, and the torsion beam rear isn’t exactly sophisticated, it the trick in the Exora.

The steering is around …-centre though, and a chore to pilot along resembling a curvy road. For duty though, the Exora well.
