proton x50 price

This is why there's still no confirmed price list for the Proton X50 yet

Bookings for the Proton X50 are opened but the obvious question on every prospective buyer’s mind is, “How am I supposed to book for a car when I don’t know the price?”Proton dealers nationwide are ready to accept a RM 500 booking fee for the Proton X50 but you can’t view the car at any showroom yet. Instead, Proton is organizing closed-door preview sessions to selected customers but if you are not on their preferred customers list, you’ll have to wait longer.

Proton X50 vs Perodua Aruz – Do you really need that 2 extra seats?

Having said that, we predicted that the price of the X50 could range between RM 80,000 to a little over RM 100,000.With that price, it is priced closely to Perodua’s SUV.
