Just yesterday we shared images of the 2023 Proton X70 MC2 (Minor Change 2) facelift on local roads with some light camouflage. Today, new leaked images all but confirmed the C-segment SUV’s new face, which looks to mirror its Geely twins, the Boyue Pro and Azkarra.

These images came from The Ajerul, showing what looks to be the frame of the upcoming X70 facelift. Based on the cutouts and curves of the frame, it matches the design of the Geely Boyue Pro/Azkarra. According to Funtasticko’s source, the Infinite Weave grille of the new X70 will take inspiration from the X90’s diamond-shaped studs too.

The source further added that the facelifted X70 will get an updated interior as well, which we reckon will be similar to the aforementioned Boyue Pro and Azkarra. If this is indeed the case, it should feature a much bigger infotainment screen powered by Geely’s faster E01 SoC, chrome finishing on the air-cond vents, and redesigned climate controls.

As for expected release, the Proton X70 MC2 facelift is said to be introduced towards the end of the year after the launch of the much anticipated Proton S50 sedan. Interestingly, the Proton X50 is rumoured to be receiving a Running Change update too, which may see some minor improvements to the popular B-segment SUV.
