Based on the safety and driver assist systems being touted for the Proton SUV, it isn’t far-fetched to say the rest of the vehicle will follow the updated Geely SUV too.
In a statement, Proton said its SUV “will be the first premium C-segment SUV produced by a Malaysian automotive brand and will be equipped with features usually found in more expensive rivals including a long list of passive, active and cognitive safety systems”.
Lane keeping assist uses a camera to read lane markings and adjusts the steering to maintain the car safely within the lane.

There has been a lot of hype surrounding the Geely Boyue, which has been confirmed to be a new Proton model following the signing of a definitive agreement between both parties. Many have been clamouring for more details about the Proton SUV, including when it will be introduced, and more importantly, how much it will cost about.
According to the second minister of international trade and industry Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan, the Boyue-based Proton SUV is estimated to arrive in Malaysia and with a price tag of under RM100,000.
In the report by China Press,Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan explained that the Malaysian government will soon liberalise its tax structure to encourage more foreign investment. This is to honour its promise to the WTO and ASEAN Free Trade Area to lower the excise duty on cars.
Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan therefore said the Boyue, which is priced at 110,000 yuan (RM69,537) in its native market, will likely see an estimated 10-20% price hike when it is introduced here. However, it remains to be seen if the SUV will be introduced as a fully imported (CBU) or locally-assembled (CKD) model, although the latter is the more likely of the two.
At the time of the signing, Proton and Geely said that while they want this model in Malaysia as soon as possible, discussions are still needed on things such as whether or not to kick-off with CBU units, as well as the levels of localisation.
The five-seater Boyue measures 4.5 metres long (a new Honda CR-V is 4,584 mm), and is designed by former Volvo designer Peter Horbury, who currently heads Geely’s design studios.
So are you going to look forward too if the New Proton SUV is about 100k?
