This just in. Proton has revealed that prices for its newly-launched X70 SUV will be the same across the country. That is to say that the X70 in Sabah and Sarawak – where car prices are usually higher due to the extra logistic costs involve – will be priced exactly the same as those sold in Peninsular Malaysia.

To recap, the X70 is available in four variants, starting with the base Standard 2WD (RM99,800), Executive 2WD (RM109,800), Executive 4WD (RM115,800) and Premium 2WD (RM123,800) – these prices apply across the nation.

For an example, the Honda CR-V 2.0 costs RM138,308 in West Malaysia, but RM139,212 in Sabah and Sarawak. The difference isn’t huge, but that’s an extra surcharge that Proton X70 buyers do not have to foot.

By now, you are all well aware that the X70 is based on the Geely Boyue – in fact, the first units come fully imported (CBU) from China, with a CKD locally-assembled model coming next year. Read our launch story for the full details of Proton’s first ever SUV, as well as a detailed spec-by-spec breakdown of each of the four X70 variants.

The new Proton X70 will be offered with five times free labour service and financing rates as low as 2.34% per annum. Browse full specifications and equipment of the X70 on CarBase.my, and read our first drive review of the donor car, the Boyue, here.
