You've been waiting years for this moment to come, and now it's finally here! The new Proton X50 SUV has at last been launched, marking the national carmaker's entry into the lucrative and hotly contested B-segment ...
While we’ve previously compared the kit on the Proton X50 variants, the full specifications and equipment on all the four available versions haven’t been fully outlined until today with the official introduction...
First launched in 2020, the Proton X50 is a B-segment SUV based on the Geely Binyue. It is the second model that Proton launched as part of a cooperation with its shareholder Geely.
The Proton X50, in all its var...
A complete SUV package from Proton, combining sleek looks, practical interior, good build quality, excellent performance, decent handling and top notch safety tech (if only on the top variant). Value for money buy.
It's no understatement that the Proton X50 is the most hyped up new car in Malaysia since perhaps the original Proton Saga itself. Question is, can it live up to all that hype? The short answer is, no. It's far from...
I just clocked 16,000km after owning it for about 8.5 months. I like the looks of the car, both interior and exterior. The LED headlamp is very bright during nighttime. The car is wide for a B-segment car and seating 3 adults at the rear isn't too cramped.
The car rides comfortably and has overall good sound insulation (except for the front door wind noise). The interior design is fantastic and overall build quality is not bad. The 148hp engine produces good power and the torque is more than enough for daily drives.
Lastly, the stock Giti Comfort tyres has terrible wet grip.
The ATLAS OS UI is absolute crap with no significant functions and is extremely laggy. Besides, the Bluetooth doesn't connect to my phone automatically, and really annoys me to pair it manually every single time. The reverse cameras are laggy as well.
The speakers are bad and not loud enough, cars at this price point all have better speakers than X50.
The interior started to produce rattling noises around the dashboard areas and B pillars, the interior "finish" is ok but the "fit" could be better.
The gearbox is just slow during low speed and sometimes it produces some weird "tak, tak" sound while going slow and reverse. Another thing is during reverse, it's just too slow and doesn't creep and once u step on the throttle the car will lurch forward. It's very hard to maneuver on inclined parking spots, the car either creeps too slow for the car to stick out or just lurch forward and you'll risk hitting motorbike or incoming traffic.
The fuel consumption for MPI engines is only marginally acceptable but you can never say it's fuel efficient.
The interior door handle design is definitely not appreciated, it feels too cheap, easy to break, and trap your fingers sometimes.
The engine does rattles and you can feel that when accelerating at low speeds. You can also feel the vibration on the steering wheel while driving.
1. Better after-sales service. I've been to a service centre near Setapak for service and pointed out the B-pillar rattles, air-cond noise in the cabin, and gearbox "tak tak" sound. All I get after 4 hours of minor service is everything ticked "normal".
2. Better stock tyres for Standard and Executive variants, the stock tyres have terrible wet grip.
3. At least AEB and Blind Spot Monitoring for Executive and Premium variants.
4. More supporting seats especially on lumbar and thigh areas.
5. Spare parts problems still persist, and owners having problems with insurance claims and parts shortages.
6. Laggy reverse cameras.
7. Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto should be a standard in this day and age.
8. Improve on build quality of your cars. My car starts to have rattles at 5000km.
