The Geely Haoyue is set to be the company's flagship 3-row SUV when it is launched in China, but could this serve as a flagship model for Proton as well?

According to a report by visor.ph, MG said that they sold 208 units of the ZS in June, putting itself comfortably ahead of the Geely Binyue/Coolray, which only managed to shift 154 units.

2020 Proton X70 CKD, here’s why the Geely Boyue Pro is not for Malaysia

The newly launched 2020 Proton X70 CKD garnered a lot of attention due to its enhanced features and most importantly lower price tag. However, some netizens were harping on the fact that the improved 2020 X70 CKD is not the Geely Boyue Pro. Well for starters, to introduce a new design on a model that’s only been on the market for a little over a year does not make business sense in the automotive industry.

Really, in the 11 years that it's been on sale, things never really changed much - it's always had passé looks, dated features and a thirsty, tired powertrain. Possibly the only good thing about the Exora is how about much space you get for the price - 7-seats starting at RM 59,800? Where else can you find that?
