Proton just published its sales report for 2023, and the national carmaker revealed some interesting details on the Proton S70 too. According to the company, over 5,000 bookings have been placed for the C-segment sedan, and 109 units were registered in December 2023 last month.
If that sales number for the S70 seems a tad low, that because deliveries of the sedan to customers will only begin this year in 2024. Chances are, the 109 units are registered as test drive cars. After all, a number of Proton dealerships have the S70 for test drive now.
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.
