Proton Waja 1.6

The Proton Waja is a superb model created as an in-house development project by Proton in 2000. Since then, the model has gone through numerous improvements, and it is now considered one of the best, most comfortable and safest Protons available on the market.

At Borneo Packages, you can get new, high quality Proton Waja 1.6 models at an excellent price without any hassle regarding reliability, driving costs or performance. You can rent your own Proton Waja on a daily, weekly or monthly basis in accordance with the setup that would suit you the most to enjoy your vacation.

The Waja 1.6 is a remarkably well-designed model that has a timeless design, making it look great and perform no matter where you take it. One of its best features is its stability in corners and when driving over irregular roads. It can handle potholes with perfect control and without subjecting the driver or the passengers to vibrations. Also, as you steer it into a corner, you'll feel almost like you're on rails, even at higher speeds.

The “1.6” in the name comes from the engine capacity, as Waja's 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine is one of the car's most impressive features. The 16-valve engine is capable of a power output of about 125 hp, while its maximum torque can reach an impressive 150 Nm / 4500 rpm. Taking into account the car's light, compact and aerodynamic design, this translates into a maximum speed of almost 200 km/h and an ability to reach 100 km/h in just under 12.9 seconds – exceeding the performance offered by many of its counterparts, including the Proton Saga.

When renting a Proton Waja 1.6 at Borneo Packages, you can get both the manual and automatic transmission version of the car. You can opt for either a four-speed automatic or a five-speed manual transmission vehicle, depending on your preference and driving style.

The Waja was Proton's first non-Mitsubishi four-door sedan, and it has achieved a resounding success in recent years, considered to be one of the few family vehicles that is truly capable both of high performance and a high level of comfort.

Upon renting one of the best and newest Waja 1.6 models from Borneo Packages, you can enjoy comfort, entertainment and safety at its best. With its dual-airbags, anti-lock brakes and side airbags, the Waja is one of the few Protons to be tested by the Euro NCAP , scoring a good result on the adult occupant safety test. What's more it is also rated well in terms of the comfort level it has to offer, as the standard model offers features such as a 6-speaker CD radio system, electric mirrors, power steering, AC and climate control.

Although considered to be a mid-sized vehicle, the Waja has quite a lot of interior space for the whole family to enjoy. The driver seat can be moved back to a great extent without minimizing rear passenger leg room, and the seats are firm, offering excellent support.
