The Gen-2 uses a platform which has been extensively developed in-house by Proton and their partner Lotus. Initially codenamed the Proton Wira Replacement Model, it was hinted that the car was to replace the Proton Wira. The name Gen-2 is an abbreviation of Generation 2, to symbolized the second generation of the very successful Wira as the first generation. The Gen-2 was among the first cars to be produced in Proton's Tanjung Malim plant, developed as part of its Proton City development project.

The Gen-2's platform is also used by the Proton Satria Neo (with a shortened wheelbase) and the Proton Persona (with an extended rear hang to form a more sedan-like body).
