The Proton Savvy is a supermini hatchback produced by Malaysian carmaker Proton. The car was introduced in June 2005, as an indirect successor to Proton Tiara. It was discontinued in 2011 due to slow sales compared to the Perodua Myvi. Following Proton’s decision to discontinue the Citroën AX based Tiara in 2000, a replacement model was required in order for Proton to reenter the supermini market. Unlike the Tiara, the Savvy’s exterior design was largely developed in-house by Proton, prominently featuring a clamshell bonnet design. The Savvy was exported to Australia, United Kingdom, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, Taiwan, and Indonesia. Proton was planning for launch in India in 2009 but due to unknown reasons it was cancelled.
