As the name suggests, the Persona and Exora Black Editions are presented in black with gold accents subtly accentuating the bumpers and alloy wheels, featuring black leatherette seats, door trimps and floor console. While the Persona gets the black treatment for the headlining, the Exora is fitted with an overhead monitor.

While style and luxury are the main thrusts of the Black Edition models, the Proton Iriz and Saga R3 Limited Edition celebrate PROTON’s successful motorsports division.

Each car is painted black and adorned with the distinctive R3 livery used on PROTON’s race cars. The Iriz is equipped with 16-inch R3 alloy wheels while the Saga is equipped with 15-inch alloy wheels with matte grey finish.
