Those looking to purchase a brand-new 2021 Proton X70 should pay more attention, as Proton is set to launch a new SE variant of the X70 real soon.
Compared to the regular X70, the upcoming SE is draped in Ocean Blue – the same shade of colour found on the Proton X50. An SE emblem can also be seen in this rear-view shot.
But it’s not just that, as an earlier spyshot gave us a good look at the SE’s 19-inch wheels, which looks like they were lifted off the not-sold-in-Malaysia Geely Boyue Pro.
The Ajerul also mentioned that the upcoming X70 SE will receive unique interior trim, including new SE-branded carpet mats and black Nappa leather upholstery. The current Premium and Premium X variants of the X70 get brown Nappa leather seats.
Apart from these changes, the rest of the Proton X70 should remain identical, down to its turbocharged 1.8-litre petrol engine and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
