The X50 is built on Geely’s B-segment Modular Architecture (BMA) and as such features MacPherson strut suspension at the front and a torsion beam at the rear. Proton claims that the car features a total of 406 unique parts compared to the Binyue, as a result of the switch to right-hand drive.

Six colours are offered, only three of which are available for the Standard model – Snow White, Armour Silver and Ocean Blue. The Executive variant can also be had in Jet Grey and the Citric Orange you see here, while buyers of the Premium and Flagship can also specify their cars in Passion Red, a solid vermilion hue. As I said earlier, the Flagship comes only in the two-tone colour scheme.

Proton is also providing two optional dealer-installed accessory packs at launch, both of which come with a powered tailgate. The RM3,500 Urban package also includes a built-in Touch ‘n Go reader, magnetic sunshades and coil mats, while the RM3,300 Utility package instead incorporates PVC mats, a boot tray and side sill scuff plates instead.

Here’s the variant breakdown in detail.
