New cars this week

Proton generally offered rugged but utilitarian cars in Bangladesh. No cool Satrias for us (bar the couple of superb GTs that came in 20 years ago). No one aspires to own a Proton here. When the Chinese automotive giant Geely acquired the brand in 2017 however, they quietly began making some changes. Their newest car, the X70, is a Napa leather-covered 5-seater crossover whose list of feature rivals that of a more popular premium offering from Honda or even a classy German. What do we mean? Well along with the aforementioned upholstery, the car comes with a full panoramic sunroof, 360-degree AR camera, cruise control, autonomous braking and all the other features you would expect in a full-sized luxury barge. In addition, the in-built voice command in the infotainment system is designed to pick up South Asian accent and can do everything from playing your favorite song to rolling down all the car windows. For power, the car's 1.5 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine generates 174 HP and 188 lb-ft of torque, which is delivered to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Prices start at TK 37.98 lac for the base model and go all the way up to TK 41.98 lacs for the Premium X model, which is surprisingly good for a car with this much feature. Oh, and all cars will come with a 5-year 150,000km warranty.
