Apart from the upcoming Iriz facelift, it appears that Proton is also working on refreshing the Persona, a model that was introduced back in 2016 as part of the company’s aggressive marketing strategy of introducing four models in a year.
From the spy photos provided by our friends over at Funtasticko, it looks like the Persona facelift is set to receive a revised front grille that is inspired by the X70. The front bumper is also new, now with integrated LED daytime running lights (DRLs), something that was missing before. Unlike the Iriz that was caught last month, the new Persona’s headlights appear to be unchanged.
As for the side profile, we can expect the updated Persona to feature some new 8-spoke alloy wheels, replacing the current wheels.
Despite its camouflage, the creases in the rear bumper hint towards a sharper-looking unit, unlike the curvier one found on the current model. The dual-tone diffuser design with an integrated rear fog light is expected to make a return on the new Persona, but refreshed with new looks.
No word on when the new Persona or Iriz will be launched, but a 2019 debut is almost certain.
