The Proton X50, already one of the most popular vehicles in Malaysia, is expected to receive a facelift in 2024. This update may include design tweaks and possibly new features to enhance its appeal. The test mule has already been spotted many times, so it’s just a matter of when.

Proton X70 facelift

Similarly, the Proton X70 is set to receive a facelift. As a well-received SUV, the new changes are likely to focus on updating its aesthetics and improving technological features. Just like the X70, the test mule has been roaming around the country, but we expect it to be unveiled at the end of the year, making way for the X50 facelift first.

Neta U

Neta U

The Neta U is an electric vehicle that promises to bring stylish design and efficient electric performance to Malaysian roads, appealing to environmentally conscious drivers. Its main draw will probably be its low price, and we shall find out how low in Q2 of 2024.

The Jaecoo J7 AWD could be a new player in the competitive SUV market, bringing all-wheel drive capabilities and likely a host of modern features. Chery’s Jaecoo brand officially landed in Malaysia last month, and we can’t wait to see the handsome off-road conceptualised SUV on our roads.

Mitsubishi's popular pickup truck, the Triton, has been updated and now features more rugged appeal and functionality, keeping it competitive in the pickup truck market. We’re pretty sure that there are many Triton fans out waiting impatiently for it.

Mitsubishi Xforce

2024 Mitsubishi Xforce

The Mitsubishi Xforce, known for its aggressively rugged looks could be one of the most popular car launches in Malaysia this year. Considering that Mitsubishi specifically designed the SUV to handle the rough stuff, we can see it becoming attractive for families who like to participate in active lifestyle activities.

Kia Carens

Kia Carens

The Kia Carens, a versatile family car known for its spacious interior and practicality, could be making its way to Malaysia if MIDF research is to be believed. They said that the compact 7-seater would be introduced in CKD form along with the fifth-gen Kia Sportage CKD. 

Along with the earlier mentioned models like the BYD SEAL, Proton X50 and X70 facelifts, Neta U, Volvo EX30, Peugeot 408, Chery OMODA E5, Jaecoo J7 AWD, MG4 Electric, and GAC GS3 Emzoom, these cars represent a significant shift in the Malaysian automotive market towards more diverse, technologically advanced, and environmentally friendly vehicle options.
