Following the reveal of the updated Proton Iriz, the national carmaker has released official images of the facelifted Proton Persona sedan.
The pair of B-segment vehicles, which share plenty of parts and components, are the first models in Proton’s current range to receive a facelift, post-Geely partnership.
The front of the Persona features a new front grille whose shape and inner detail replicates the overall design of the ‘Ethereal Bow’ and ‘Infinite Weave’ that debuted in the flagship X70. This is also the single most obvious difference between the facelifted Proton Iriz and this new Proton Persona.
The redesigned front bumper meanwhile houses newly designed LED DRLs at its corner, surrounded by trim pieces decorated with a honeycomb pattern. This also means the deletion of the front fog lamps.
At the rear of the sedan, the trunk lid of the Proton Persona now adorns a body-coloured trim piece that spells the Proton brand name, together with the deletion of the central emblem. A spoiler continues to be mounted for styling as well as aerodynamic purposes.
Completing the facelift package is a redesigned rear bumper, new wheel design, and the fitment of a shark fin radio antenna.
With the Persona and Iriz sharing the same dashboard, it is no surprise that the Persona also receives the same updates as seen in the facelifted Iriz.
A new, more advanced touch screen infotainment system is fitted, together with a coloured multi-information display in the meter cluster.
Based on the image provided, the upholstery of the seats has also been updated to a more trendy design.
Proton said they will share more details on both models in due course.
