2019 Proton Iriz facelift reveals itself to Tun Mahathir
We’ve seen a few camouflaged test mules of the new Proton Iriz facelift in the past, but thanks to a video uploaded to the official Youtube channel of prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (Chedet), we finally get to see the refreshed B-segment model in its entirety.
There are quite a number of updates here, starting with an entirely new front end that features redesigned headlamps that are sharper in appearance compared to before.
You’ll also notice the new grille which features a chrome trim piece features a slight kink to accommodate the Proton logo, while also linking the clusters. The bumper is also new here, and it sports a smaller intake this time round, although the sections for the LED fog lamps are now a lot bolder and protruding.
Not a lot different along the sides, as we only spot new wheels as well as a shark fin antenna. The rear however, is a different story as there’s now a large, blacked-out section on the hatch that has the company’s name on it – similar to the X70. As a result of this new item, the taillights have been visually slimmed as well.
Further down, the revised bumper sports a flattened section for a simpler design, with highlights being corner vents. Compared to the current Iriz, the number plate is now positioned further down as well and that faux F1-style brake light has been omitted.
Inside, big changes as far as the eye can see include a larger touchscreen infotainment system, and if you look closely, you’ll notice a new gear knob that is reminiscent of the one in the X70.
