It’s been teased and previewed to death, and finally, PROTON has properly unveiled its first ever SUV – the Proton X70 at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS). The much-awaited vehicle can be viewed at the PROTON booth from 23 November to 2 December 2018.
PROTON has been super sheepish about its maiden SUV to the point that it’s annoying. Thankfully, the vehicle is now available to view in entirety, inside and outside.
The carmaker has five units on display at the motor show, with special areas to give visitors a unique hands-on experience of the technology and equipment fitted to the car.
It comes integrated with an embedded SIM, Wi-Fi connectivity, pre-loaded apps that offer online radio and music, navigation and weather forecasts. It also features voice recognition software that lets you control different aspects of the car by speaking a voice command.
Colour options include Snow White, Armour Silver, Jet Grey, Cinnamon Brown, and Flame Red (options depends on vehicle variants). Interior trim options include black fabric, black leatherette, and the top-of-the-line brown nappa leather (Premium 2WD variant only).
The SUV received a perfect score for side impact and head protection.
The car was also recently classified as an Energy-Efficient Vehicle (EEV) by the JPJ.
PROTON has officially announced 12 December as the launch date for the Proton X70. The launch will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. Expect a glitzy affair as the company seeks to end 2018 on a high note and start the new year with a bang.
