I am sure many of our viewers are curious as to how much fuel the new 1.5 liter Proton X70 will be able to achieve, so on the recent media drive to Desaru, we did a short fuel consumption test at highway speeds on the North-South Expressway, at speeds between 100 – 120 km/h.
We used a standard vehicle prepared for the media drive, but our intention to do the FC test was not announced; however, please note that the test results were based on the instrumentation and gauges as supplied with the vehicle, so what you see is what you get.
Driven at normal speed, the Proton X70 does return a decent consumption, but as with all vehicles, high speed driving can cause FC to go up.
I mistook the speed warning alarm that occurs at 110 km/h for the BSM, so my apologies for that.
