Another set of photos have emerged of the upcoming Proton Iriz facelift, this time showcasing the new B-segment hatchback’s front end.
Our friends over at Funtasticko recently posted photos depicting the new Iriz’s front and rear end with better details.
Up front, it appears that the new Iriz will receive a pair of headlights from the Persona, which are slimmer in profile that the Iriz’s original units. New headlights aside, the new Iriz also appears to receive a new front grille and bumper. Presumably this is the range-topping 1.6 Premium model, as it looks like there are a pair of LED DRLs at each end of the bumper.
As for the rear end, a slight redesign is also expected, possibly with a trim piece fitted to the tailgate, as the bulge can be observed from this particular photo. The rear bumper is also expected to be revised, as the rear reflectors of the Iriz are positioned a little bit higher up than before. New 10-spoke wheels are also seen on here.

Last year, Proton updated the Iriz with the then-new three-point engine mount and TCU software, giving its little hatchback some much-needed refinement improvements.
