Proton Cars Australia upgrades its midsize Persona GLi 5-door hatchback but lowers the price. Fluctuations in currency exchange rates as well as improvements in manufacturing efficiencies at Proton’s Malaysia-based plants are enabling the auto maker to price their products more competitively, officials say in published reports. The Persona GLi 5-door now starts at A$15,990 ($8,712).
