In terms of specs, the base model 2WD standard gets halogen projector headlamps without DRL but it comes with LED foglamps and LED rear combination lamp.
Unlike the more expensive variants, there are no auto wipers but you do get auto headlamp with “follow me home” function and auto folding side mirrors. To meet the below RM100,000 price point, the standard variant gets fabric seats.
The base X70 runs on 225/65 R17.
The base model skimps out on some amenities like powers seats and auto-dimming rear view mirror, but all the essentials are there. This means you still get the full digital LCD meter cluster plus the 8-inch touch display. As far as we can tell the Proton X70 is the only car to offer this feature at this price range.
The base model gets steering mode select (Normal and Sport), drive mode select (Normal, Eco, Sport), push start, auto dual-zone climate control, rear air vents and an onboard air purifier as well.
