Proton X70 – What needs improving?

When Proton first launched the X70 back in late 2018, consumers were sceptical of the car’s Chinese roots – will it be problematic, they asked.Well, that comes as no surprise, considering the history of Chinese cars sold here in the past.With the X70, Proton and Geely hope to change the perception once and for all.Despite all of their efforts, the X70 is not perfect and has some (minor) shortcomings.Is the Proton X70's fuel consumption poor?We are aware that a lot of ow

How much does Proton X70’s 19-inch tyres cost?

The Proton X70 became an instant hit with Malaysians for its superb value for money, quality and features.At launch, the national carmaker surprised us by equipping the range-topping X70 Premium with 19-inch alloys as standard. The largest-ever wheel size to be fitted onto a Proton model.Proton officials said that this is to create a greater visual differentiation between the mid-range Executive and Premium variants despite knowing full well that the tyre replacement for the 19-inch wheels would

Although Proton has yet to confirm when the Proton X50 will be launched, we are pretty certain it will be within the month of October. Some sources have even provided us with a very specific date – October 15.The October timeline is easy to understand because Proton desperately needs the X50 to close the gap in its annual sales target (MCO not helping).

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
