Saw a lorry with 2 units of gold coloured Exora CFE with "Test Drive" stickers on their doors this morning on my way to work. The lorry was turning to Subang airport road.

Tested it 9hrs ago , driven the bold unit , so here's my summary :
1-cfe works ? YES !! As powerful as a 2.0 na sedan ..
2-exterior - good looking with the new bumper , and the presurised air cooler is at the right bumper air gap
3-interior - I would say plastics ( dash and trim ) below perodua . Leather seats are so so as it's quite hard and the seats are small , feels like sitting on the wooden chair when ur in secondary school.
4- handling - responsive and direct steering , sports car feel as it is small .

The good - powerful cfe and smooth cvt
The no good - cabin quality , hard n small seats . The ugly ice unit

if the cfe is powerful,it maybe a good family car.

hard seat, not comfortable initially but is good for long outstation drive and no backache - will get used to it and appreciate it.
just my 2 cts.

important is the CFE+CVT

hard seat is common for proton seat nowadays, for semi-bucket feels...once get used to it, really good... smile_thumbup.gif even honda civic leather seat also quite hard...

MPV to beat?
Probably yes.
I am yet to get my hand on a test drive unit.
I am 100% confident the power issue is solved as engine power is upped and its mated to a CVT unit.
The feeling of test driving a CVT Saga is still there, i am afraid the feeling is gone if i test drive this one and i wanted an Exora instead. What scares me more is i am still single and desire for an MPV could come with a wife in the package.

From previous experience with the Exora, the R&H is great for long journey.Additional power completes the circle.

my take:

pro - everything nice + good build quality oso. can't feel turbo boost = smooth smile_thumbup.gif
con - noisy drive train, could be cvt sound as same with Saga flx but flx is noisier.
unknown - cfe + cvt reliablity...but only time can tell.
