The Differences Between The 4 Proton X50 Variants

After months of speculation and guessing, the cat is finally out of the bag but with four Proton X50 variants and six colours to choose from, what are the differences between each model?


To make it easier to digest, we thought we would create a table to point out the major differences. No doubt the standard X50 would be sufficient for most, but some do prefer a bit more tech, power and safety which Proton has kindly provided through the other variants.

Proton X50 details

Obviously the top variant (1.5TGDi Flagship) gets all the goodies, but the 1.5T Premium is not a badly specced car in itself, coming with all the features of the top variant but without the panoramic sunroof, dual-tone exterior (black roof and pillars), as well as Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).

The prices have yet to be announced, but we expect the 1.5T Executive/Premium to sell the most but then again if the price of the 1.5T Standard is unbelievable don't be surprised if it sells like hotcakes because Proton did mention at the preview that the differences in pricing would be broad.   

Which one would you go for?
