From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Proton X70

For a five-seater SUV, the Proton X70 feels fairly large and is big enough to put some seven-seater SUVs from one segment above. The Proton X70 is the longest in its class, which dwarfs some SUVs from one segment above, thus giving the Proton X70 a much expensive feel on the outside.

In terms of comfort and convenience, features on the inside, the Proton X70 really outclasses all the SUVs in its category. The X70 feels plush on the inside as well, thanks to the sturdy build quality and impeccable fit and finish, which wasn’t totally expected from a mainstream car maker like Proton.

Due to having the largest dimensions in its category, the Proton X70 feels incredibly spacious when it comes to interior. The legroom, knee room and head room at the rear are comparable to really premium sedans, and thanks to the sliding backrest, the rear seat feels very comfortable even for much longer travel runs.

Toyota Camry

The new Toyota Camry looks far superior and edgy over the model it has replaced, and in fact, is one of the most beautiful looking cars in its category. The flowing theme for the design makes the Toyota Camry very sporty from whichever angle you look at it.

Complementing the bold and premium exterior design of the new Toyota Camry is the revamped cabin on the inside. The new dashboard design looks very unique, changing the overall character of the Toyota Camry altogether. Also, the new Camry is equipped with all the premium features which one expects from a full-sized luxury sedan.

Given its large size translating into a very spacious cabin and premium fit and finish, the Toyota Camry feels extremely luxurious on the inside. The suspension setup too is set on a softer side, which gives the passengers on the inside a plush ride quality.

Proton X70

While the Proton X70 is quite big enough giving it an intimidating stance, the overall design is not that eye-catching and distinctive. While the side profile, as well as rear profile, still manages to look quite unique, the front end of the X70 looks quite pale, if going by the segment standards. The grille too looks very simple for a car of this category.

While there is no question on the levels of space on the inside, the rear seat lacks under-thigh support a bit, which robs of some of the comfort to the rear occupants. The short length of the rear bench might be a bit of a trouble to tall passengers.

While the engine feels very responsive and powerful for an SUV this big, the 6-speed automatic transmission of the Proton X70 feels a bit sluggish and doesn’t feel as exciting to drive while shifting gears as in other premium SUVs.

Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry sold in Malaysia misses out on the very popular hybrid variant, which has made the Camry a success story worldwide. The 2.5-litre petrol engine does feel smooth and refined, however, it does not return a fuel efficiency as commendable as that of the hybrid variant.

While the Toyota Camry indeed looks sporty, the power delivery, as well as steering feedback, are not as spot-on as one would like. This car focuses more on back seat comfort over driving appeal, which might not be liked by many driving enthusiasts.
