    I heard it can accelerate smoothly to 200kmh...gentleman-like acceleration, not boy racer-like.
    Lower roadtax, lower halfcut cost?

    but no turbo... people always associate turbo with high maintenance. or is it maybe if dont overboost, and not always pedal to metal, expect normal maintenance?

    reason why it isnt that popular is the same as many other cars with similar cc options with more pots. you typically end up spending more on maintenance for around the same amount of power. Only real pro is its smoothness.

    do you really want a 1.6 where its maintenance is basically in the same range as the 2L variant and parts are less common? imo the cons outweigh the pros... an mitsu's v6s are pretty horrid to work on (imo)

    so better spare the smoothness for big sedan/MPV, and for satria go for pure turbo power...

    I'm considered in the younger generation, being born after 1990 but I do know about that compartment. I've met a few people who are surprised that I'm driving cars like Saga Iswara, Wira because it is uncommon for people around my age to drive these.


    My Wira if I swap in a 4G92 MIVEC or 4G93 DOHC, nobody would notice it from outside because everything is stock externally except for the wheels and twin tip exhaust.

    If you're talking DIY -the 93/63 is way easier to work on. And skip 63 la - way too old and a major hassle to get endorsed on Protons. A well done up 93T is plenty good but you'll still get your ass handed to you by a Kelisa + K3VE or a Myvi K3VET.

    They are much lighter, power to weight ratio better. Like one of the tyre shop boss once tried my VR and exactly same day got one Wira with 63T came for tyre change. He tested both and mentioned the wira has much more power as my E33A Mitsu body is heavy.......lol
