Proton X50 - Specs, features, price, and more
The Proton-Geely partnership has proven very beneficial for the Malaysian automaker. Their last-year product, the X70 SUV, gained the brand a lot of success and appreciation. And now auto enthusiasts and prospective customers are looking forward to the launch of Proton’s upcoming compact SUV, the X50.
Proton X50 price
It is known that the X50 would hold many similarities to the Geely compact SUV. Also, seeing Proton X70’s competitive price tag that makes it around RM 25,000 to RM 40,000 less expensive than its Japanese competitors, a rough idea about X50 price can be concluded. The Proton’s upcoming compact SUV is expected to range between RM 75000 to RM 95000. For more details, check out this article.
