2020 Proton X70 CKD: What's new compared to before?

The 2020 Proton X70 CKD is here, slightly less than two years after the China-made imported (CBU) model was introduced in Malaysia.Sorry to burst the bubble for those hoping to get the Chinese market top specs Geely Boyue Pro as the basis of the X70 CKD, as changes done to the exterior is minimal – the Proton emblems are new, and the X70 CKD gains a new shade of grey called Space Grey, and that's about it. Everything else about the car's exterior remains th

Proton X50 vs Perodua D55L - What specs to look forward to?

The Malaysian crossover segment is looking very exciting with the national carmakers pitting out against one another. In the blue corner, we have the Proton X50 and in the red corner, lies the Perodua D55L. Which will come up on top in features and equipment?Both crossovers are not really the same in size or category for that matter, but the one common denominator between the two is that they are definitely the most-anticipated cars to be launched in 2020 (or could it be 2021?)We know

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

2020 Proton X70 CKD - Worth topping up RM 3,000 for the sunroof?

The locally-assembled Proton X70 CKD is finally here, and the company has done some streamlining to the model's line-up.Previously in the Ningbo-built, imported Proton X70 model, a panoramic sunroof was available on the Premium 2WD variant, but that has since changed, now that the Premium 2WD is no longer the top specs variant.With the introduction of the new CKD model, Proton has introduced a new Premium X variant, whose only difference from the Premium variant sitting one rung below is the

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

Why is a Proton X70 cheaper than a Honda CR-V by RM53k? What's the difference in taxes?

The most expensive Proton X70 Premium X variant sells for just RM 122,800. A similarly equipped Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P sells for RM 175,900.

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

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

Review: Can the Honda CR-V still justify itself against the Proton X70?

Lets be honest here, the Honda CR-V has seen better days. Before the introduction of the Proton X70, it was the default choice for families looking for an SUV.There were many decent alternatives to the Honda CR-V - the Mazda CX-5, Nissan X-Trail, or even the similarly priced but 7-seater Mitsubishi Outlander - but none could challenge the Honda CR-Vs dominance.All that changed when the Proton X70 undercut everyone else in price.

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
