proton x70 price list

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.

During the media test drive, Proton engineers explained why they didn’t offer an AWD option for the 2020 X70.The reason is simple, the Malaysian market simply does not demand for an X70 AWD variant. Of the 29,000 units fully-imported (CBU) Proton X70 sold last year, less than 4% of the customers picked the AWD variant – that’s only about 1,160 units of the

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’s quite a lot of things to like about the X70 too – the interior is decent, the range-topping variant gets power seats up front, and the price is rather attractive when compared to its rivals. There is however, one thing we don’t quite like about the Proton X70 and that is the boot/tailgate.What is there not
