PROTON has just taken the wraps off its 2020 Proton X70 SUV, built at the company’s newly refurbished plant in Tanjung Malim. The award-winning SUV introduces several key new features, headlined by the spanking new seven-speed wet dual-clutch transmission (7DCT).
The locally-assembled (CKD) 2020 Proton X70 is set for its grand launch tomorrow but that hasn’t stopped details from being leaked on the web. As paraded out in the open by car enthusiast The Ajerul, we now know some key details of Proton’s SUV.
On 13 December 2019, the first 2020 Proton X70 rolled off the production line in Tanjung Malim, exactly one year and one day after the SUV was introduced in Malaysia. Malaysia’s best-selling C-segment premium SUV is now proudly locally-assembled, with the CKD variant set for the official launch soon.
PROTON is set for its first big launch of the year—the locally-assembled 2020 Proton X70. The national automaker confirmed that the CKD model will feature a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission co-developed by Geely and Volvo, in place of the six-speed slushbox on the current model.
Barely a month after its official launch, there’s been a crash involving the Proton X70. As widely spread across social media, the accident occurred along Jalan Kereta Api Lama, Kapar, Selangor.
After months of teasing and sneak peaks, PROTON today unravelled the much-anticipated Proton X70 – its first sport utility vehicle (SUV). Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad launched the vehicle at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC).
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.
Some people have all the luck. A lucky Lelong.my customer is one of the first owners of the new Proton X70 SUV in Malaysia. Lelong.my handed the keys of the yet-to-be-released SUV to 39-year old Denise Anak Julie from Sarawak at a prize-giving ceremony in conjunction with Lelong’s 20th anniversary.
The Proton X70, PROTON’s first SUV, has passed the New Car Assessment Program from Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP) with flying colours. The latest Proton vehicles sits near the top of its segment for occupant safety.
