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).
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.
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.
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.
It looks like Proton’s first ever sport utility vehicle (SUV) – the Proton X70 is off to a flying start even before launch. Pre-launch bookings since 8 September have exceeded 10,000 units, with over 2,000 units made online via Proton’s new booking portal. The much-anticipated SUV is set to launch in November.
