Proton & X50 Edit
The Proton X50, based on the Geely Binyue, is Proton’s first B-segment sports-utility vehicle. Since its introduction in 2020, it’s been well-received thanks to its competitive price, style, and performance. The X50 goes against other SUVs like the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-30.
Proton X50 Variants
The Proton X50 is available in four variants; the 1.5T Standard, 1.5T Executive, 1.5T Premium, and the 1.5 TGDI Flagship.

For its price, the Proton X50 has a premium interior that outshines that of its competitors. And this can be seen in all variants. Standard across the range are intelligent entry with push start button and remote engine start, a steering wheel with drive mode selection and cruise control switches, N95 cabin filter, rear air vents, and a dual-layer center console design with plenty of storage.

On the exterior, the Proton X50 has LED lights all-around including LED projector headlights, LED daytime running lights (DRLs), and LED taillights.

Being a B-segment SUV, the Proton X50 has a decent amount of space for five adults. It measures 4,330 mm long, 1,800 mm wide, and 1,609 mm tall. However, its boot is relatively small compared to some of its competitors measuring 330-liters.
Even on the Standard and Executive variants, the Proton X50 gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment monitor with standard voice command functions, four speakers, and USB ports. The Premium and TGDI Flagship variants take it up a notch with a 10.25-inch touch screen infotainment monitor fitted with a more advanced voice command system, Proton Link App, and six speakers.

Features available on all variants are online navigation, music streaming, weather forecast, as well as smartphone, Bluetooth, 4G, and Wifi connectivity.
While all variants of the Proton X50 share a 1.5L 3-cylinder turbocharged engine, the engine on the TGDI Flagship is tuned to produce more power and torque. All Like the Proton X70, the X50 has a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with Manual Mode. In its base form, this engine produces a max power of 150 PS at 5,500 rpm and a max torque of 226 Nm from 1,500 to 4,000 rpm. In the TGDI Flagship, the engine produces a max power of 177 PS at 5,500 rpm and a max torque of 255 Nm from 1,500 to 4,000 rpm.
