Proton S70 Now Available for Test Drive at Selected Dealers

Even though the Proton S70 was launched in Malaysia last month in November 2023, the C-segment sedan wasn’t available for test drive yet, until now. Based on discussions in the Proton S70 Malaysian Community, some Proton dealers have test drive units of the S70 already.

One such dealer is Proton Cahaya Automotif 3S in Segambut, KL; interested customers can either walk-in or make an online booking to test drive the new sedan at this particular outlet. Chances are, other Proton dealers should also have the S70 available for test drive very soon – in the Klang Valley area, at least.

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.

To recap, 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.
