Proton exports 2020 Proton X70 to Brunei; First CBU market for updated X70

Barely a year after the Proton X70’s debut in the Kingdom of Brunei, Proton has already introduced an update. Brunei will be the first to import the locally-assembled (CKD) Proton X70 launched in Malaysia earlier this year.Though the Proton X70 has only been on sale for a few months in Brunei, it quickly made its way to rank as the top three SUV in its segment. To recap, the CKD Proton X70 was updated in 2020. The SUV now comes with new stiffer suspension, a new 7-speed

2020 Proton X70 CKD, here’s why the Geely Boyue Pro is not for Malaysia

The newly launched 2020 Proton X70 CKD garnered a lot of attention due to its enhanced features and most importantly lower price tag. However, some netizens were harping on the fact that the improved 2020 X70 CKD is not the Geely Boyue Pro.Well for starters, to introduce a new design on a model that’s only been on the market for a little over a year does not make business sense in the automotive industry. The X70 is still fresh to the market and is not due for a model revamp just yet.Howev

Is RM 124k a fair price for the Toyota Corolla Cross? The Subaru XV and Proton X70 are cheaper

Youve been waiting for it, and now its here. The compact SUV segment in Malaysia just got a whole lot more interesting with the arrival of the Toyota Corolla Cross. Youve probably read and digested all the specifications and features, gone back and forth through the brochure.Established players such as the Honda HR-V, Subaru XV, Mazda CX-3 (and the Proton X70 to some extent) have had this segment of the market pretty much licked for years, especially after Toyotas own C-HR was pulled from the sh

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

CKD Proton X70 – Here’s What We Know So Far

Launched back in December 2018, the Proton X70 is Proton’s first-ever SUV and is currently the most popular SUV on sale in Malaysia right now.Much of its popularity can be owed to the Proton X70’s price tag, which starts from RM 99,800, positioning the much larger X70 against smaller competitors such as the Honda HR-V.However, unlike other Proton models that are locally assembled, the Proton X70 is actually built in Geely’s Ningbo production facility in China. A couple of

Will Indonesian buyers accept the Proton X70?

Proton ended 2019 on a strong note, firmly putting the Proton X70 as the undisputed leader in the C-SUV segment, with over 13,300 units, eclipsing the Honda CR-V’s 12,000 plus units.But does it come as a surprise at all? Thanks to generous tax incentives that nobody else apart from Proton and Perodua enjoys, the rebadged Geely Boyue is nearly RM 50,000 cheaper than a similarly equipped Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P.On paper, Malaysia no longer have a national car policy, not for the last 20 yea

Why the 2020 Proton X70 CKD no longer have an AWD variant?

Proton dropped the all-wheel-drive (AWD) variant for the 2020 Proton X70 CKD line up and some consumers are bothered by it. 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

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

Proton X70 vs Honda HR-V; why the smaller SUV is still more practical

Now that the locally assembled (CKD) Proton X70 is finally here, you must be thinking: RM 122k for a C-segment SUV complete with panoramic sunroof? Now that’s affordable! But wait, is the affordably priced X70 the most practical option? The similarly priced Honda HR-V begs to differ.We know what you're thinking, the CKD Proton X70 is a C-segment SUV, while the Honda HR-V falls in B-segment category. But the biggest deciding factor here is the price of the cars. So i

What’s the resale value of a Proton X70? Flux has an alternative

The Proton X70 was first launched in December 2018, as a fully imported (CBU) model from China. Slightly more than one year later, the locally-assembled (CKD) model was launched in February 2020, with a new transmission but hardly any change in price. The range topping Premium X model is priced at RM 122,800.Barely two years on the market, it’s still too early to gauge the resale value of a Proton X70.

Deal Breakers: Proton X70 – the boot needs to be rebooted

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

2020 Proton X70 CKD 7-speed wet DCT is tested in Malaysia, lifespan of 350k km

One major highlight of the newly launched locally-assembled (CKD) 2020 Proton X70 is the adoption of a new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that replaces the conventional 6-speed torque converter automatic.Most Malaysians would be familiar with the term DCT (dual-clutch transmission) no thanks to the Volkswagen DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) and Ford PowerShift that started the discussion of DCT reliability.

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.
