According to reports, Proton’s SUV X70 has been spotted on roads in Pakistan as the company is testing it ahead of a launch this year.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first camouflaged car to hit the roads with Toyota’s Yaris and Hyundai Sonata already having done this. Furthermore, this wasn’t the first time, the X70 was seen doing test rounds recently and coupled with the tweet by the Malaysian High Commission in December indicates that it will be making its debut soon.
