Proton has come a long way since its inception in 1979, rolling out our first national car in 1985, the Proton Saga. After more than three decades through thick and thin, we see the latest product of Proton, the Iriz. We at planned a special episode of our video car review, Taking Proton back to the Heart of Malaysia – in the Proton Iriz.

So, where is the heart of Malaysia? Somewhere in the middle of the Peninsular, Pos Betau in Pahang. A place where the Orang Asli (indigenous people) of the Semai tribe resides. The Semai is a sub tribe of the largest indigenous tribe in the country, the Senoi.


In this special episode, we drive from Kuala Lumpur to Pos Betau through Bentong and Raub. With a mission: That is to show the people of Malaysia, the latest product of Proton, the B-segment Iriz.


The meaning behind this video production goes deeper than just the physical ‘Heart of Malaysia’ location. We have seen glory days and also struggles of Proton throughout these years. With negative perceptions and opinions about the brand made by Malaysians ourselves. So, here we are, trying our best, taking Proton back to the Heart of Malaysians. Where it belongs.


It may still be a long road ahead, to achieving what we yearn for, but we as Malaysians will still support and believe in Proton, our national car, our national pride.

If you like this special episode that we have made, do give us a thumbs up and Subscribe to our YouTube Channel. Share it with your friends to show support and love to Proton. However, if you are one of those that write nasty comments about our national car maker, well, just do nothing. Really.
