As the title suggests, Proton is expected to start their online booking for their new Proton X70 model this coming Wednesday, 17 September.
No official price yet announced but here’s the thing you would consider; it comes with four variants; Standard 2WD, Executive 2WD, Executive 4WD and Premium 2WD – with all equipped with the same 1.8 Litre TGDI engine and a 6-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) which derived from it’s original model, the Geely Boyue.
Exterior-wise, the Proton X70 finishes with a new chrome grille design with infinite weave design in the middle. Other aspects may still looks similar to Boyue facelift, as most of the production works are more focusing on changing the driver seating position from left to right, as this is considered the first Geely product with such configuration.
For now, Proton has tested 77 units of their X70 for almost 300 vehicle tests and more than 500 vehicle system test, with approximately 750,000 hours manpower used for this to come into production, reliability test with more than 2 mil. Kilometres. Expect this coming to you soon.
