Seeing the keen interests in the new facelift Proton Iriz, a hatchback that has long been seen as a car with great potential but isn’t quite “there”, has Proton finally built a “complete product”? I’ll leave you to decide, on features of the car at least, at the end of the video.

Having tried it out at Proton’s test track, Adrian was impressed, mainly with the power steering, the throttle response, the CVT gearbox and the insulation of the new car.

It’s not the last word in driving pleasure or cabin refinement, but in his words, it’s a noticeable step up. Personally, that’s enough for me to want to try it out as soon as possible.

There are five variants to the facelifted Proton Iriz with prices starting from RM36,700 for the 1.3 Standard MT, RM39,700 for the 1.3 Standard CVT, RM44,700 for the 1.3 Executive CVT, RM46,700 for the 1.6 Executive CVT and RM50,700 for the 1.6 Premium CVT.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
