Following recent road test spyshots, Proton has now released the first official photos of the facelifted Iriz hatchback. Set to be launched later this year, the Iriz is the first model in Proton’s current range to receive a facelift, post-Geely partnership.
The front of the Iriz features slimmer headlights that are integrated with the grille assembly, which in turn has a shape inspired by the “Ethereal Bow” that made its debut on the Proton X70.
The radiator grille meanwhile features the “Infinite Weave” pattern sculpted into its design, highlighted in the centre by the car’s logo. The redesigned front bumper houses LED daytime running lights at its lower edges.
At the rear, the Proton Iriz gets the same familial feature as the X70, by having the Proton badging affixed to the rear tailgate. Likewise, the redesigned rear bumper features vertical garnish inserts, at either side of a new central strip on the lower edge of the bumper – to accentuate the width of the car.
A new shark fin antenna and new rotor blade design alloy wheels round off the visual updates of the Iriz.
Inside a colour touch screen infotainment system jointly developed by Proton and Ecarx is reported to offer updated connectivity options as well as voice command functions.
The pictures also reveal a new seat trim design.
More information on the infotainment system and the mechanical specification of the Proton Iriz will be released closer to the launch date.
