  • What segment is the upcoming 2023 Proton S50? Does it compete against the City or Corolla Altis?

    Following the launch of 3 SUV models, the next model that Proton will be rebadging will be a sedan. Proton has yet to officially name the model, but colloquially called the Proton S50, said model has been spotted doing its rounds around Malaysian streets for good while. One burning question left lingering on the minds of many readers is the segment of the Proton S50. While Proton has yet to reveal the S50’s dimensions, we can refer to the dimensions of the Geely Emgrand – the donor vehicle. Acco

  • Better than Geely Emgrand donor car? Proton S50 caught once more in the wild - ACC confirmed

    After the Proton X90, Proton is due to introduce another model next year, but it will be a sedan. Like all recent Proton models, it will be based on Geely, to be specific - a Geely Emgrand. The Internet has taken the liberty to call it Proton S50, which is the most likely name based on the company’s recent trademark filings. We still don’t know if the new model will take the place of the current Proton Persona or the discontinued Proton Preve. A 1.5-litre 3-cylinder engine is almost certain, bas

  • 181 PS, 290 Nm, price equals to RM 61k: Should this Geely Binrui Cool be the next sedan after the Proton S50?

    With a name like that, you’d imagine the Geely Binrui Cool is a car that packs all the bells and whistles to suit. Thankfully it does, and the end result is an angrier, faster cousin to the soon-in-Malaysia Proton S50. Now, hold on a second, this isn't the base car to the purported S50; that one is the Geely Emgrand. The Binrui is a more expensive product than its Emgrand stablemate, and looking at the Cool variant, we're left thinking if this should be another sedan Proton would do well to adop

  • Spied: Now wearing 'Infinite Weave' grille, 2023 Proton S50 with 1.5T to be launched after X90?

    Bit by bit, more of the 2023 Proton S50 surfaces. This time, we've caught one of the test mules up in Genting Highlands, which now neatly wears the carmaker's 'Infinite Weave' grille on its muzzle. Like the last one that was seen, this is also a right-hand drive (RHD) example. Some details are also made clearer this time - peep the side mirrors that has the same blind-spot indicator like the X50 and X70. A sunroof is also visible.

  • From Axia to Vios, these 8 cars are coming to Malaysia in 2023 and could cost less than RM 100k!

    In this upwardly mobile society, having a means of transportation is a necessity and in places where public transport is either absent or inefficient, having your own car is a must. While some might see them as a luxury, there are those who needed them to supplement their income or to commute. That said, for many who are budget-conscious, the threshold of owning a brand-new car shouldn’t breach the six-figure mark. While there are plenty of cars likely to be launched here in Malaysia in 2023, we

  • RHD 2023 Proton S50 spied, could it be Proton's most powerful sedan with X50's 1.5 turbo?

    We'd like reiterate that there's no official mention of the name 'Proton S50'; it is just one of the names trademarked by the manufacturer along with 'X90'. Leaving the mystery of names aside, its arrival on Malaysian shores inches closer, as exemplified by this right-hand drive (RHD) test unit. Still about as masked as the last time we saw it, this new set of photos by The Ajerul affords us a better look at the cabin. Good news then as this particular car is RHD – just like the X90 from yesterd

  • Spied: Fans rejoice, the Proton S50 has been spotted with a sunroof

    Perhaps you like the added perceived class one brings, or maybe you just like the sort-of top down experience once in a while; whatever the case, not many sedans in Malaysia offer a sunroof. But that could change with the upcoming Proton S50. Spotted once again in its testing rounds, this photo of the Geely Emgrand-based sedan by The Ajerul affords us a better look at the sedan's top, which shows the sunroof. It's a new detail, as previously we could only see the rear of the car. Also read: Geel

  • Rendered: Proton S50, the C-segment saloon Malaysia deserves?

    Although Proton has introduced two SUVs to the market (X50 & X70), interest for a sedan Proton still remains high. Thus, the speculation of an upcoming Proton S50 intrigued many of us. That is quite understandable since Proton has given the people some decent saloons in the past. One that had so much promise was the Proton Preve. The Proton Preve was a C-segment saloon with high ambitions of being a global car. It was good looking, and had styling cues similar to the Honda City and Kia Forte of
