We’re merely weeks away from the official launch of the Proton X70, which is scheduled to arrive next month in CBU form. In the mean time, the automaker’s first ever SUV is being paraded across the country as part of a private viewing campaign, but not everyone is as fortunate to see it in the metal just yet.
Well, that’s why we’ve put together this video, discussing at length about the car’s design, overall build quality and technology, as well as its safety, performance and connectivity aspects. It’s shaping up to be a truly impressive vehicle, and segment-wise it goes head-to-head against the current leader Honda CR-V.
To recap, there will be four variants on offer, each sharing the same 1.8 litre TGDi four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 181 hp and 285 Nm, which is enough for a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 10.5 seconds (2WD model). A six-speed automatic with manual shift mode is standard.
Watch the video above to find out everything we know about the Proton X70 thus far. Also, don’t forget to share with us your thoughts on the SUV, and feel free to drop a fair estimate of the SUV’s price range. Comment, below.
