Masterparts stocks aftermarket parts and spares for most Proton vehicles in South Africa. In 2015, after a decade of operating in the country, Proton stopped selling its vehicles in South Africa. Nonetheless, models like the sporty Proton Gen 2, the Neo Satria and the compact Savvy are still on our roads.
Are parts from Masterparts cheaper than those from Proton dealers?
Proton parts and spares from Masterparts tend to be cheaper than those available from Proton dealerships. However, this doesn’t mean you’ll be compromising on quality. We deal directly with original equipment manufacturers and suppliers (OEM and OES), locally and overseas. Often the parts and spares we supply are the same as those offered by dealers, just at lower prices.
Types of Proton parts we provide
Masterparts can provide almost any Proton part or spare you’re likely to need. However, please note that we don’t supply body panels, mirrors, or lights for any car makes. Some of the most commonly requested Proton parts we supply are brake pads, disks and rotors; spark plugs; timing belt kits; fuel, air, engine and oil filters; and water pumps.

Proton, or Perusahan Otomobil Nasional Berhad in full, is a Malaysian automaker. It produced the first fully Malaysian-manufactured car, the Proton Saga, in 1985. This was followed by a hatchback version, the Saga Aeroback, and the Proton Saga Iswara, widely used as taxis within Malaysia.
Proton partnered with Mitsubishi Motors and, up to the 2000s, most Proton vehicles were based on Mitsubishi models.
In 2000, Proton manufactured the first Malaysian-designed car, the Proton Waja. Four years later, it released the Proton Gen-2, with a Malaysian-made Campro engine, and in 2007, it released the Persona saloon.
In 2012, Proton was bought by a Malaysian conglomerate, DRB-HICOM – and in 2017, a 49.9% share of the company was acquired by China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group.
