SHAH ALAM: Proton will open bookings for its new sports utility vehicle from tomorrow.

The new SUV, which has been named using a new alphanumeric naming convention as the X70 is available for booking for RM1000.

The X70 was unveiled to the media at a special media preview held today at the Proton Styling Studio at the Proton Centre of Excellence.

Present at the event was Proton chief executive officer Dr Li Chunrong, deputy chief executive officer Datuk Radzaif Mohamed as well as other senior management members.

While there are few changes to the external lines to differentiate the Proton SUV from its Geely counterpart, Proton has incorporated a few uniquely Malaysian design touches to the X70.

This includes the grille, which features a shape inspired by a bow. In the middle of the distinctive grille is a large Proton badge, which is framed by three black horizontal bars.

Proton will be organising a series of preview events for the public at seven Malaysian cities from September 19 to November 4, before its launch later this year.
