Proton Iriz

For an entry-level compact urban hatchback, the Proton Iriz looks smart, unique and chic, especially from the front and rear. The Iriz was recently given a mild makeover, which has seen the car getting its front and rear ends tweaked with added styling elements, making it look very modern and trendy.

Usually, the entry-level hatchbacks are equipped with only the basics to pass through the mandatory rules and regulations with ease. However, Proton has gone one step ahead and equipped the Iriz with segment-best safety features like six airbags, ABS with EBD, traction control, vehicle stability control, and front and rear parking sensors.

The Proton Iriz is being offered with a punchy set of 1.3-litre and 1.6-litre petrol engines, which feel quite powerful with nice surge of power across the entire rev range, especially the latter 1.6-litre mill.

Rear seat space could have been better

Proton Iriz

While the exterior design of the Proton Iriz looks trendy and youthful, the same cannot be said about the interior cabin. The overall design of the dashboard looks plain, and if there was not the presence of a touch screen infotainment system inside, the dashboard would have looked dated as well.

The compact dimensions of the Proton Iriz have taken a toll on the back seat comfort as well, as the rear part of the Iriz’s cabin lacks enough space for three full-sized adults. Also, the under-thigh support too is not up to the mark.
