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 DCT along with a new col

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 owners have lamented ab

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 Toyo

Proton X70 - Is it expensive to maintain?

The Proton X70 is currently Proton’s most sophisticated model on sale right now. We took a closer look at the maintenance costs of the Proton X70, comparing it against one of its closest rivals - the Honda CR-V. Proton X70 costs RM 939.09 more to maintain than the Honda CR-V Over a 5-year/100,000-km period, owners can expect to pay RM 4,897 to maintain the Proton X70, while owners of the Honda CR-V only need to fork out RM 3,958, RM 939.09 less.

Ahead of the locally-assembled (CKD) Proton X70’s debut, it appears that some dealers have begun releasing details of the new model. As seen on Paultan.org, the photos give us a good look at the new locally-assembled X70, including the variant walkthrough. It's grey, not blue as previously thought. Kicking things off is the new Space Grey colour, not blue as previously thought.

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

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 years. The t

At RM 99k, Proton X70 Standard 2WD is the most value for money X70

Since the introduction of the Proton X70, all the love and attention were given to the range-topping X70 Premium 2WD and for good reason. By now you should be well aware of the “Hi Proton” Intelligent Voice Command function that allows you to operate some key functions of the car. Although, it is worth noting that controlling the windows using voice command is only available on the X70 Premium as the other Proton models do not come with the hardware to support it.

Proton X70 CKD: New blue colour option coming?

It appears that the upcoming locally-assembled (CKD) Proton X70 will receive a new blue colour. We spotted the new blue body colour in Proton’s own press materials, indicating that at least one variant of the new X70 will receive the new colour. See the similarities? At this point of time, it remains to be seen that the new shade of blue is called, though at a glance, it appears similar to Geely’s own Topaz Blue found on the Dihao GL PHEV. Not that simple..

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 weeks after the X70 w

If you’re waiting for Proton to introduce the locally-assembled (CKD) Proton X70 soon, don’t hold your breath as it won’t arrive so soon. According to sources familiar with the matter, the CKD version of the Proton X70 has been postponed, possibly until Q1 2020, a slight push-back from the originally scheduled November 2019 timeline. A quick check with several Proton dealers also indicates that many dealers are offering discounts ranging from RM 2,000 up to RM 6,000 for a Proton X70, suggesting

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.

Shortly after introducing the X70, Proton announced their intentions to locally-assemble the X70 by the end of 2019, and they have succeeded in doing so.
