The Proton X70 was launched in December 2018 in three trim levels, but without any accessories. Offering optional equipment is of course beneficial to both Proton and its customers, and the X70 now has a list of genuine accessories. Better late than never, so let’s take a look at what’s being offered.

Let’s start with the SUV’s exterior, which can now be dressed up with side steps (RM1,499) and door visors (RM288). These two items are also practical, and are bound to be popular picks. With paint protection in mind, one can also add on a rear bumper scuff plate (RM199) and door handle protective film (four pieces, RM100).

Of course, there’s also the choice of Llumar solar or security window film/tinting. For the latter, owners can choose to include the sunroof, or not. It’s RM1,688 for the solar film and RM2,388 for the security film; add RM200 if you want to include the sunroof.

Moving inside, the expected digital video recorder a.k.a. dashcam (RM1,299) is available, as are things like magnetic sun shades (RM228) and coil mats (RM185). The coil mat set comes in three pieces (one big piece for the rear) while the custom cut sun shades (four pieces, no clips) does not affect the opening and closing of windows. Proton’s existing child seat can also be factored in for RM799.

In the boot, Proton is offering a plastic boot tray (RM188) that protects the cargo area carpet and is easy to clean. For organising loads, there’s a four-hook cargo net (RM55) to hold items in place, as well as a foldable trunk organiser with two compartments and side pockets (RM75).

These optional items can be bought a’la carte; alternatively, they are grouped into Utility and Urban packages. The Utility package comes with side steps, door visor, boot tray, cargo net, trunk organiser and the magnetic sun shades for RM2,060. The a’la carte price for package is RM2,333, so you save RM273.

The Urban package meanwhile consists of the coil mats, dash cam, rear bumper scuff plate, door protective film and Llumar security film. It costs RM3,750, or RM3,900 with sunroof tinting. Compared to the a’la carte price of RM4,171 and RM4,371, the package savings are RM421 and RM471, respectively.

Of course, some of the items here can be “bought outside”, but as always, the benefits of official genuine accessories offered by the carmaker include a perfect fit and cut, the option of including the price of the options in your total purchase price (all lumped into the HP loan), and receiving your new car with all the desired items pre-installed, saving you time and effort.

The Proton X70 genuine accessories come with a six-month warranty and does not affect the car’s factory warranty.
