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. Of course, looks are subjective but our

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.

The Proton X70 is a spacious SUV that will accommodate 5 adults comfortably. Rear legroom is generous with 35 cm (equivalent to 3 tennis balls) of space when adjusted for a 175 cm tall adult at the rear and front.
