The Proton Iriz was launched back in late 2014 as an effort to counter the ever-popular Perodua Myvi. The B-segment hatchback was then enhanced in 2017 with a new three-point engine mount, new exhaust system, and TCU software in an effort to improve its appeal.
Thanks to our friends over at Funtasticko, it appears that Proton might be working on another update for the Iriz, as a lone spyshot caught a semi taped-up car near the Alam Sutera LRT station.
According to the post, this particular Iriz’s front and rear bumpers were covered with camouflage, suggesting that there may be changes. The position of the rear reflectors that appear higher upwards in the rear bumper further strengthen this possibility.
Current Proton Iriz for reference
The presence of the partially taped up rear tailgate also seems to suggest that the updated Iriz could feature some trim piece there, similar to the recently facelifted Alza.
Seeing that the Iriz was recently updated with the then-new three-point engine mount and TCU software, it’s hard to believe that another update would arrive so soon. However, this spyshot changes that notion, meaning that we could expect a proper update in the near future.
Stay tuned for more updates.
