The just-launched Proton X90 has earned a five-star rating on the ASEAN NCAP crash test, with a cumulative score of 83.75.
Tested at the China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC) lab in China, the X90 was evaluated per the new, stricter ASEAN NCAP 2021-2025 assessment protocol, which places greater emphasis on ADAS features, including tests for autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and motorcyclist safety.
The X90's standard 6 airbags helped boost its score, while child occupant protection earned the car a maximum of 16 points for front impact and 8 points for side impact, totaling 45.37 points out of a possible 51.
The X90 performed well in tests for autonomous emergency braking (AEB), receiving a high score due to its ability to detect pedestrians. Blind spot detection also received satisfactory ratings.
The Proton X90 was launched earlier today. Four variants are available at the outset: RM 123,800 (1.5 Standard), RM 130,800 (1.5 Executive), RM 144,800 (1.5 Premium), and RM 152,800 (1.5 Flagship).
