2020 Proton X50 officially teased in Merdeka video!

2020 Proton X50 officially teased in Merdeka video!

The Proton X50 is now official! National carmaker Proton has teased its upcoming crossover in its 2020 Merdeka video, showing a blue example along with the rest of the current product range. Finally, the automotive industry’s worst kept secret is out.

A few quick cuts show off the X50’s side profile, quad tailpipes, LED headlights with daytime running lights and the round Proton logo. Look closely enough and you’ll even spot red highlights on the front grille and the brake callipers. The wheels match the 18-inch items found on the Geely Bin Yue/Coolray in other markets.

This also confirms we are getting the “Sport” version of the crossover (it’s available with two distinct faces in China, this being the more aggressively-styled look), as seen in the frontal shot and of course, the quad pipe close-ups. Interestingly enough, the teaser car wears a body-coloured roof setup instead of black, although the floating roof look is still in play with the blacked-out C-pillars.

There are no specifics released just yet, but the Proton X50 is likely getting the 1.5 litre, direct injection turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine with 177 hp and 255 Nm of torque, paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission as available in both China and the Philippines. The 0-100 km/h time as claimed by Geely is 7.9 seconds.

Built on the modular BMA platform, the X50 is expected to be offered with class-leading safety features. Six airbags and electronic stability control will be standard, while the upper variant(s) are likely to have autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and even adaptive cruise control (ACC) with active lane keep assist, surpassing even its bigger sibling, the X70.

Now that Proton is actively teasing the X50, the launch should be planned for the next month or two, matching the Q4 2020 timeline indicated earlier. Based on the response online, it couldn’t come early enough, really. Now that it’s all official, we’ll be waiting for the specs an the all important prices with bated breath. Selamat Hari Merdeka, everyone!

            You are right. I am afraid that it will actually happen as the Game-Changing X50 is more advanced than the big brother X70. I hope that Proton internal will discuss about this matter and reduce the price for X70 in order to avoid the cannibalization.

      because HAVAL looks outdated af, and not to mention Geely using BMA and Volvo tech. Yes rebadge but at least it is a good car, for pips who interested in X50, no one cares about the badge. If badge is important, go Toyota / BMW those, why get Proton? Haters gonna hate

      I honestly think Haval is a good brand. I did consider to buy the Haval H1 previously but I thought it was too small and the design is quite outdated. The X50 is anything but a mere rebadge. To refresh your memory, something labelled as rebadge doesn’t have to go through LHD to RHD (or vice versa) conversion and rigorous tests. Rebadge is like buying a Rush and change the emblem to Terios. Anyone can do it. Heck, I can buy a Prevè and simply change the emblem to Civic, thats how easy it is.

      Haval is a decent car too. The refreshed H2 is a decent offering but why it doesn’t do well, is because of a few factors. 1) Lack of service centres on every street corner (don’t take this literally please). 2) Little or no information on parts availability or pricing 3) Weak communications. They don’t even reply e-mails. Can’t expect them to have a good marcomm programme.

      The brand deserves better. May be a more experienced distributor with deeper pockets with the ability to lower those prices can help. Otherwise, Haval will continue to be in everybody’s shadows.

  • Too bad Proton, Vivo is ahead of you by one quarter to launch X50. They even have X50 Pro!

    On a serious note, the ACC support low speed follow or not?

  • While it is official, the naming ‘X50’ isn’t yet official. The first line is a bit misleading.
    Althou widely expected, let’s not give any wrong assumptions as yet, eh.

  • Hmmm... I wonder on Aug 31, 2020 at 4:58 pm

    These China-Protons with DCTs, Turbos and sophisticated electronics, so much more complicated than NA engines and CVTs. I wonder how Proton Service Department technicians are coping with diagnosis and repairs. How is Proton growing and enhancing technician expertise? They probably need salary increase and more training.

      Drive honda, even worse than proton. Going to honda service centers so many times but not helpful at all. And too many issues on cvt transmission, fuel pump, steering rack, oil dilution, honda sensing in any honda models. Always pay like buying used car. Will never buy a honda model again.

    Is X50 really a crossover? A BMW X6 is a cross between an SUV and a coupe, hence the name crossover.

    X50 and X70 is relatively a genuine SUV – it does not cross with any other body shape (not sedan, not coupe, not anything)

      I like that you already thinking ahead about the maintenance but I doubt that this is a serious question because it sound like a trollalala.. How does one know the maintenance details when it’s not even launched yet?

  • As I support Proton all this while, this model is not built from scratch by Proton itself. Just another series of rebadge car, but with better price and specs.

    Facts.

    • While it is not built from scratch, it is far from a simple rebadge. A more appropriate term would be ‘reengineered’.
