Here is the latest set of spied photographs of the  2012 Proton Exora facelift edition. The vehicle has got a larger grille. It also features new doors as well as restyled taillights. Well, we could not find much difference or modifications in the interior part of the vehicle. We expect that this could change by the time the model is launched.

As far as the engine options are considered, Proton Exora facelift will likely feature of a new turbocharged P3 CFE. This will most probably pair with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The time of the introduction of the auto is not yet announced. However, it is learnt that the car will make its debut at an auto show, that too later this year itself.
