  • Missed opportunity? Should we have gotten the Geely Jiaji L instead of the Haoyue?

    When Proton entered its partnership with Geely back in 2017, the Geely Jiaji MPV was one of the models that was speculated to wear a Proton badge, alongside the Proton X70 / Geely Boyue. Further cementing that notion was that Proton trademarked the V70 name, which some people speculated could be the name for the MPV. As a brief recap, the Geely Jiaji is a C-segment SUV that offers 6- or 7-seater options, as well as a range of turbocharged and mild-hybrid (MHEV) powertrains. In China, the Geely J

  • Geely Jiaji scrapped, P1 confirmed no plans to replace Proton Exora - MPVs a diminishing market

    The Proton Exora is the oldest new car model that is still on sale in Malaysia. It was first launched in 2009 but despite being nearly 15 years old, Proton has no successor planned for its sole MPV model. When Geely took a 49.9 percent stake in Proton in 2017, the Geely Jiaji (VF11) was listed as among the three models that Proton has secured intellectual property rights to. The other two were the Geely Boyue (Proton X70) and Geely Binyue (SX11, which we know as the Proton X50). Proton is now in

  • 2021 Proton V70: We pit the Geely Jiaji-based MPV against the Exora!

    If you're looking for a 7-seater family MPV, you could do much better than the aging Proton Exora. Really, in the 11 years that it's been on sale, things never really changed much - it's always had passé looks, dated features and a thirsty, tired powertrain. Possibly the only good thing about the Exora is how about much space you get for the price - 7-seats starting at RM 59,800? Where else can you find that? But that's about it, and Proton desperately needs a new MPV to be competitive in this s

  • Proton V70 (Geely Jiaji) might be dropped in favour of Proton X90 (Geely Haoyue)

    The 7-seater C-segment Geely Jiaji is billed as a more upscale model to replace the ageing Proton Exora (on the market since 2009). Our recent posts on the yet to be confirmed Proton V70 (Geely Jiaji) have spurred a lot of conversations.

While Proton have trademarked the V70 name, t

  • Proton V70 name trademarked – new Proton MPV for 2021?

    Both the Proton X70 and Proton X50 have steered the domestic car maker to a fresh and new direction. Proton has actually registered a few interesting model names back in 2018, and one of them is the Proton V70 name. If the “X” letter has been used to name crossover models, the “V” letter might just be used to name MPV or van-like models. Proton has told its investment partners that a new Geely-based model is due for 2021. The model of the car is yet to be confirmed. However, if we look at Geely’

  • Proton V70: rebadged Geely Jiaji to be a more upmarket 2021 Proton Exora?

    This handsome multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) that you see here is the Geely Jiaji, a model that could potentially be a replacement to the ageing Proton Exora - not in terms of product positioning, but rather a spiritual replacement. What is the Geely Jiaji? Introduced in March 2019, the Geely Jiaji is a brand-new MPV. We sampled one during our visit to Guangzhou some time last year and found it to be a rather compelling upgrade to the ageing Proton Exora. Is the Proton V70 name confirmed? Proton tr
