Proton & X50 Edit
The Proton X50 is a B-segment SUV from Malaysia’s national carmaker, Proton. It’s based on the Geely Biniyue but has been tuned by Proton for the Malaysian market. The X50 was launched in October 2020 and is one of the top-selling B-segment SUVs in Malaysia. It competes against SUVs like the Honda HR-V, Toyota Corolla Cross, and Mazda CX-3.

Regular servicing is vital to ensure your Proton X50 runs smoothly without breaking down. Most modern Protons, including the X50, require servicing every 10,000 km or six months where the engine oil and oil filter will be replaced. You can check your vehicle owner’s manual or confirm it with your mechanic to know exactly what is needed during your vehicle service.
You can locate Proton service centers in Malaysia on their website. Alternatively, if the warranty of your Proton X50 has run out, you can visit a CARSOME Service Center for quality service at transparent prices.
You can buy a second-hand Proton X50 at any used car dealer. Alternatively, you can find one on reputable online car platforms such as CARSOME. On the vehicle listing page on CARSOME, you can check the mileage, inspection report, and close-up images of the car. You can also filter for cars that are available at your nearest CARSOME Experience Center (EC) to make it easier for you to visit for a test drive.
If you prefer, you can walk into your nearest EC to enquire about a used Proton X50 or any car you’re interested in. Make sure you conduct thorough research and inspection of a particular car before you purchase it.
The road tax for vehicles in Malaysia depends on a number of factors including its engine capacity and ownership type. The road tax price for a Proton X50 with a 1.5 L engine is RM120.
The insurance of a car is calculated based on the market price of the car, coverage type, location, engine capacity, and your No Claims Discount (NCD). The insurance for a three-year-old Proton X50 1.5 TGDI Flagship without NCS is around RM2620 a year.
The estimated combined fuel consumption of the Proton X50 is 6.4 L/ 100 km. Considering it’s a heavy SUV, that figure is quite economical and on par with its competitors such as the Honda HR-V.
Compared to the Proton X50, the Perodua Ativa is considerably smaller, measuring at 4,065 mm long and 1,710 mm wide. The Ativa also has a smaller 1.0 L 3-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces considerably less power and torque at 98 PS and 140 Nm compared to the X50’s 150 PS and 226 Nm. At 200 mm, the Ativa also has a slightly higher ground clearance than the Proton X50 at.
However, the Ativa has plenty of safety features including ADAS from the H variant onwards. The Proton X50 has better cabin refinement and space but as the Perodua Ativa is priced from RM62,500 to RM 72,600, it’s still a good choice for buyers looking for a compact SUV.
The 2022 new generation Honda HR-V has introduced many improvements that make it more comfortable and refined than the Proton X50. In terms of dimensions, it is almost identical to the X50. It’s powered by a 1.5 L 4-cylinder engine that produces less power and torque than the X50 at 121 PS and 145 Nm. The Honda HR-V’s and Proton X50’s ground clearance are virtually identical at 196 mm.
The Honda HR-V has Magic Seats that can be configured into three modes to fit a variety of objects. The HR-V also has a hybrid RS e:HEV that has an estimated fuel consumption of 4 L/ 100 km. That said, the Honda HR-V is priced from RM115,900 to RM141,900, making it pricier than the X50.
All CARSOME Certified cars are quality assured through a stringent 175-point inspection and professional refurbishment. Additionally, each used Proton X50 comes with a fixed price with no hidden fees, five-day money-back guarantee, and one-year warranty.
