PROTON X90 SUV With 3 Rows Unveiled This Evening

This X90 will be officially unveiled with its selling price in the coming weeks.

Once a struggling automotive brand, PROTON today is a sales success. The success story comes from two models from Geely Auto.

The local assembled Proton X70 which arrived almost 4 years ago and the Proton X50 which is just two years old.

To take the sales success further, Geely Auto has shared their Geely Hao Yue which is a 7-seat D-segment SUV for Proton to build in Malaysia for local sales and also export to Pakistan and South Africa to start.

Designed to compete head on with the Toyota Fortuner, Mazda CX-8 and Nissan X-Trail, the  X90 will probably be priced around RM138,800 which will give a huge price edge over the Mazda CX-8 which is priced around RM180k or the Nissan X-Trail which is priced from RM140,888.

A Premium Modern Family SUV that is designed to empower

The PROTON X90 is the third X-series model from PROTON, the SUV market leader by sales in Malaysia. Assembled at PROTON Tanjung Malim alongside the PROTON X50 and PROTON X70, the PROTON X90 is also a testament to the company’s commitment to supporting the local automotive industry by introducing new technologies to the ecosystem.

Available in four variants ranging from Standard to Flagship, PROTON’s largest SUV offers space and versatility with not only a 7-seater configuration but is also available as a 6-seater featuring individual chairs for the second row. The new model’s muscular silhouette highlights the latest evolution towards a premium design identity.

The redesigned Ethereal Bow flowing between the headlamps frames a newfound premium aura, creating a strong and harmonious look that is sure to impress.

The grille is equally stunning, featuring diamond shapes inspired by songket patterns, exemplifying infinite movement, and upon closer inspection reveals distinctive repeating patterns of the Infinite Weave.

This evolutionary Design DNA was inspired by Malaysian craftsmanship and rich cultural heritage. (below we share 4 pictures of Geely’s original version of this 3 row SUV)
