PROTON has upgraded the Iriz hatchback, which promises better noise insulation, driveability, and lower NVH (noise, vibration, harshness).
The 2017 Iriz has a new black front grille, interior finishing, ECO indicator, and leather/fabric upholstery design.
It also sports the new Proton logo, and comes with two new colours of Carnelian Brown and Ruby Red.
The top 1.6-litre Premium CVT Iriz variant gets a black roof for a two-tone colour exterior, and Smart Link feature for the infotainment system.
The 1.3litre Exec Iriz variant gets push-start ignition.
The Proton Persona’s powertrain tuning also made it into the improved Iriz, for better acceleration and gear shift response.
Like the Persona, the improved Iriz also has a three-point engine mount system that reduces engine vibration into the cabin.
