Proton S70 Brochure Leaks Ahead of Launch Tomorrow

It’s less than 24 hours before the Proton S70 makes its official debut tomorrow, and a purported brochure of the C-segment sedan has started circulating. The information shown in the brochure also include the spec sheet of the S70 that was making its rounds earlier.

This alleged brochure of the S70 was shared by Benjamin Lee in the Proton S70 Malaysian Community Facebook group. Looking at the overall design of the brochure, it does look rather official and polished. Of course, it’s still possible that some details are not finalised, given that this brochure didn’t come from official sources.

As previously revealed by Proton, the brochure shows that all variants of the S70 are powered by the same 1.5L turbo engine that produces 150PS and 226Nm of torque. The mill is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with Manual Mode.

In the safety side of things, the S70’s ADAS – exclusive to the Flagship and Flagship X trims – is 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.

To recap, the Proton S70 will be launched in Malaysia tomorrow on 28 November; we’ll find out the local pricing of the C-segment sedan then. If you’d like to learn more about the S70, check out our test drive and walkaround video of the upcoming model.
