X50. Read our review here.

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.

However, if we look at Geely’s model line-up, a possible candidate for the Proton V70 would be the Geely Jiaji, a C-segment MPV to replace the aged Proton Exora.

There are several engine options for the Geely Jiaji and we’ve managed to try the 1.5-litre MHEV version.

Other model names that have been registered by Proton are listed at the end of this article. Could the “S” name be for a sedan? Could the “C” name be for a hatchback? We don’t know yet.

Will we get the Geely Preface ?

Curiously enough, the “Proton X90” is nowhere to be found in the list. Is the "X90" name being processed, or will the “V" letter be used on a bigger SUV?
