Deal Breakers: Proton X70 – the boot needs to be rebooted

When the Proton X70 was launched, it garnered tremendous attention. It was Proton’s first SUV and the first Proton car with the “Hi Proton” feature.

There is however, one thing we don’t quite like about the Proton X70 and that is the boot/tailgate.What is there not
