Last chance to get the Proton X70 1.8 TGDi as production ends, here's how it compares to the other 5 variants

Last chance to get the Proton X70 1.8 TGDi as production ends, here's how it compares to the other 5 variants 01

With the production of the sole turbocharged 1.8-litre 4-cylinder variant of the Proton X70 ended, the facelifted X70 that is reportedly planned to be launched in 2024 would only be available with the turbocharged 1.5-litre 3-pot unit.

Considering that the 1.8-litre unit is an ageing engine and Proton is committed to the 1.5-litre 3-cylinder unit, the news of the 1.8-litre variant's discontinuation should not come as a surprise. Yet, the X70 1.8 TGDi is still listed on Proton's website, meaning that stocks are still available.
