KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia`s national car, the Proton X70 is emerging as one of the leaders in Malaysia’s SUV market as it has broken all previous records for delivery numbers in its segment.

“Proton X70 was the most popular model in January and February and it is on track to achieve the accolade for a third consecutive month.
