Is it true that the Proton X70 suffers from high fuel consumption?

Weighing nearly 1.7 tonnes for just a five-seater SUV, the Proton X70 is the heaviest C-segment SUV. Naturally, its fuel consumption is higher than the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, or even Nissan X-Trail. But how much higher? Curiously, Proton doesn’t provide any official fuel consumption data for the Proton X70, which is powered by a turbocharged 1.8-litre direct injection engine.A similarly turbocharged but 1.5-litre Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P has a claimed fuel consumption of 7.0-litre/100 km.

Ratings – Honda CR-V’s fuel consumption, commendable score

The common knowledge about smaller capacity turbocharged engines is that they are fuel efficient. We’ve put the Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P through the WapCar fuel consumption test to find out if it adheres to the norm.Powering the Honda CR-V is a turbocharged 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine that makes 193 PS and 243 Nm of torque.

Pros and Cons: Proton X70 – Great on comfort, not-so-great on fuel
