March 6, 2024 Andrew Cheng

Proton just revealed its sales figures for February 2024, and more units of the Proton S70 have been delivered to customers last month. With over 2,314 units registered, this is enough to make the C-segment sedan Proton’s second best-selling model for the month.

Of course, the national carmaker’s best-selling model in February 2024 remains the Proton Saga with 6,212 units sold. According to Proton, the year-to-date sales of the A-segment sedan (12,341 units) are 10.9% higher than the same period in 2023.

Coming back to the S70, Proton expects even more units of the sedan to be delivered to customers in the coming months. The carmaker shared last month that it has received over 8,000 bookings for the S70, so without a doubt there is strong interest in the model.

To recap, four variants of the S70 are offered: Executive, Premium, Flagship, and Flagship X. Regardless of which S70 model you get, they are all powered by the same 1.5L turbo engine that produces 150PS and 226Nm of torque paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. As for safety, all variants get six airbags, but only the Flagship and Flagship X models are equipped with ADAS.

Speaking of which, the S70’s ADAS is said to be similar to the X90‘s, albeit with the omission of Auto Park Assist (APA) and Emergency Lane Keep Assist (ELKA). That being said, this is still a very sophisticated ADAS, especially for a C-segment sedan. Not only does it have 12 different sensors, it also supports Intelligent Cruise Control, Lane Centering Control, Lane Change Assist, and even Traffic Sign Information.

Pricing wise, the Proton S70 retails from RM73,800 for the Executive model, going up to RM79,800 for the Premium trim. The Flagship and Flagship X variants, on the other hand, are priced at RM89,800 and RM94,800 respectively.
