Finally, Proton’s return to the C-segment non-SUV space, the much anticipated S70, has been launched!
We have already seen plenty of this car during the preview sessions held at their test facility, and even previously when the car was spied on open roads without any camouflage wrap to obscure its looks.
Though priced quite similarly, the Proton S70’s offensive does include those somewhat larger dimensions as well as some rather interesting feature additions not typically seen or currently offered in rivals.
Here are the variants launched from Proton:
Proton S70 1.5T Executive
Proton S70 1.5T Premium
Proton S70 1.5T Flagship
Proton S70 1.5T Flagship X
For one, the Flagship X is equipped with a sunroof - in fact, it’s the only item that sets it apart from the S70 Flagship.
The other obvious example would be the 1.5-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder engine that’s standard across the range. The unit is a familiar one, being the lower output option fitted to the Proton X50 that uses multi-port fuel injection instead of direct injection (MPI, not TGDI). Power is therefore 150PS and 226Nm, which is a pretty high bar to set at this price. It’s even fitted with the same 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that’s also found in the X50.
