2020 Proton X70 CKD - Which colour looks best?

As part of the new locally-assembled (CKD) Proton X70 line-up, the company has introduced a new grey colour.The new colour is called Space Grey.This bump the total number of colours up to 6 – Snow White, Armour Silver, Jet Grey, Cinnamon Brown, Flame Red, and Space Grey.However, the new colour is still not the best looking colour for the Proton X70, in our opinion. It's a rather flat looking colour and doesn't do much to bring the X70's character lines. We reckon that this

Meet the Haval H6 - possibly a cooler, better-looking Proton X70 competitor?

The Proton X70 is a fantastic car in most regards, and one might easily think its Geely Boyue donor car would be a runaway success in China. Not quite - the 2021 Haval H6 easily tips that balance.The Chinese love it: Haval shifted 52,734 units of the H6 in October 2020. Geely meanwhile sold 46,040 SUVs across their entire range in the same period.Seen at the currently-ongoing 2020 Guangzhou Autoshow, its cuts a handsome figure. Its definitely shoutier than the Boyue/X70, thanks in part to its fr

2021 Haval H6 debuts in China, possible competitor of the Proton X70?

China has been on the up and up when it comes to their cars. Geely’s interest in Proton has bestowed us the extremely good value, Geely Boyue-based Proton X70 for instance. But back home, the Boyue has a tough fight against the similarly-sized 2021 Haval H6.Introduced in 2011, the H6 is China’s best-selling SUV with over three million units sold. Let’s take a look at the model and see how it stacks up, courtesy of these photos from Autohome.The new H6 has a sharply designed gri

Proton X70 – What needs improving?

2021 Toyota Corolla Cross vs Proton X70 – Still want that X70?

It is inevitable, comparing the recently-introduced 2021 Toyota Corolla Cross against one of the most popular SUVs around – the Proton X70.After all, seeing that the price of the top-spec Proton X70 is very close to the entry-level Toyota Corolla Cross (RM 123k vs RM 124k), cross-shopping between the two is bound to happen.Therein lies the question: for roughly the same amount of money for the top-spec Proton X70, should you, or should you not, add a little bit more money and get the 2021

2021 Toyota Corolla Cross vs Proton X70:你还想买X70吗?

Proton X70作为我国最受欢迎的SUV之一,它和刚刚上市的2021 Toyota Corolla Cross之间的对比,几乎是不可避免的。毕竟,顶配版Proton X70的价格与入门级Toyota Corolla Cross的价格是非常接近的(RM 123k vs RM 124k),因此两者之间的交叉选购也是必然的。最大的问题就在这里:以顶配版Proton X70的价格,你到底应不应该多加一点钱,去买2021 Toyota Corolla Cross呢?推荐阅读:Toyota Corolla Cross大马上市,标价RM 124k起跳,搭载全套ADAS、全景3D和TNGA平台外观:你喜欢Proton还是Toyota?这两款SUV的设计各有特色,要比出高低并不是一件容易的事情。诚然,Proton X70或许只是吉利博越的贴牌车,但博越也是一款设计精美的SUV。尤其是配合19英寸的轮圈,X70散发出一种成熟优雅的气质。至于Toyota Cross,可以说Toyota是将Toyota RAV4的设计元素,缩小放到了Corolla Cross的身上。相比于Toyota C-HR的前卫设计
