It was recently revealed that Proton would be given access to the Geely Boyue SUV platform, as part of its deal with the Chinese automaker. This will see the development of Proton’s first-ever SUV, although exact details about such a plan are scarce for now.

The main thing most people would be interested to know is just what the Proton SUV will look like, and to reduce the strain on your imagination, we’ve rendered exactly that.

As you can tell, the rendered vehicle still retains the Boyue’s original profile, but with a heavily altered front fascia. A tweaked version of the Perdana’s grille replaces the previous Geely one, while the lower apron accommodates a larger intake and new fog lamp enclosures. A set of 17-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels from the Suprima S have also been added as part of the transformation.

Moving on to the rear, the changes are subtle when compared to the front, with a revised skid plate that appears less rugged than on the Boyue. Elsewhere, the taillights have been redesigned, no longer forming the Boyue’s C-shaped lighting motif. A Proton badge in place of Geely’s is the only other revision here.

It wasn’t stated at the time just how much of the Boyue design will be adopted by the Proton SUV, but these renders certainly points to something promising, right? Share your thoughts with us.
