2024 Proton X50 RC Official – Same Design, Improved NVH & 360 Camera From RM86k
June 4, 2024 Andrew Cheng

Surprise surprise, Proton just updated its beloved B-segment SUV. The 2024 Proton X50 RC – that stands for Running Change, which brings some small upgrades – features the exact same looks as the 2020 launch model, but it does bring some tangible improvements, including better NVH and a new 360-degree camera.

First, prices. No changes to the asking prices of the 2024 X50, so it still starts at RM86,300 for the base Standard model. It goes up to RM93,300 for the Executive, while the Premium and Flagship trims are priced at RM101,800 and RM113,300 respectively.

As mentioned, the NVH of the updated X50 has been improved along with a new 360-degree camera; the latter was one of the shortcomings we highlighted in our review of the launch model. Aside from that, the infotainment system has also been upgraded with a faster chipset, and all variants of the SUV now feature a sizeable 10.3-inch infotainment display. Unfortunately, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are still not supported.

Under the hood, the Flagship variant of the X50 remains the sole model to be powered by a 1.5L turbocharged direct-injected three-cylinder engine that can do 177PS and 255Nm of torque paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. As for the other three models, they get a 1.5L port-injected engine that outputs 150PS and 226Nm of torque.

If you’re keen to book the new 2024 Proton X50 RC, you can do so now at your nearest Proton dealership. Do note that there is an early bird promotion for the updated SUV, which offers up to RM8,500 discount for the first 5,000 customers who register the car by 31 July 2024.
