March 21, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
Al-Haj Automotive has been waiting patiently for the price of the Proton X70 to rise. The manufacturer has now published the increased costs for its small SUV, which follow the debut of locally produced models.
Despite the fact that the price rises are just for one model, the increase is substantial, reaching Rs. 860,000. The following are the new Proton X70 pricing, which are effective immediately:
|Variants||Old Prices (PKR)||Revised Prices for Old Bookings (PKR)||Revised Prices for New Bookings (PKR)||Increase (PKR)|
|Proton X70 Executive AWD||PKR 4,590,000||PKR 5,300,000||PKR 5,400,000||PKR 810,000|
|Proton X70 Premium FWD||PKR 4,890,000||PKR 5,650,000||PKR 5,750,000||PKR 860,000|
Proton will shortly begin delivering the first batch of domestically produced X70 SUVs around the country. It’s a small SUV that goes up against the Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, and MG HS.
It comes in two versions, both of which include a 1.5-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine with 176 horsepower and 255 Nm of torque. The power is sent to the front wheels or all four wheels via the 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox (depending on the variant).

Here’s how the new pricing operate, just to be clear:
- Those who ordered the X70 before the price increase will pay Rs. 5.3 million for the Executive AWD model and Rs. 5.65 million for the Premium FWD model.
- People who have already purchased or will purchase an X70 following the price increase will pay Rs. 5.4 million for Executive AWD and Rs. 5.75 million for Premium FWD.
A digital instrument cluster, steering wheel controls, a push-start button, power-folding mirrors, a day-night rearview mirror, ventilated front seats, dual-zone temperature control, cruise control, and other modern driver aids are all standard on the Proton X70.
Despite the price increase, the X70 remains a competitive SUV that has the ability to outperform its competitors if Al-Haj Automotive can keep up with demand.
