Proton Iriz. Is probably the “ best car in the world “

By Cody Lew for Proton Iriz

I bought my proton Iriz in October 2019 . The salesman later told me that the blue Color is out of stock and if I am willing to take the Jet Grey one . Well I had read a lot about this car and in no mood of any Color shortage will rob me of a chance to get my hands on the wheel literally.

Prior to this , I had read and compare with the budget cars in Malaysia , more especially with the Bezza , Myvi, Saga and maybe a little on the Persona .

Looks like bucks for bangs , the new Iriz has the most safety ( MUST have and not good to have ) stuff compare to the Bezza . If anything to tempt me , Bezza ‘s huge boot size and also the 1 litter economical variant was very very tempting indeed . It’s price was also lower than than 1.3 Iriz

What wins over me was the 300 + improvements that I had heard from the various bloggers. And the safety abs , ebd, hsa etc over th Bezza.
I guess the confidence to drive a very reliable and safe car trumps over smaller things like ( good to have ) FC , boot size , push start, side skirts etc .

Fast track forward , when the car was brought to and I started to drive around casually in my area . I knew that this is the car for me !!! The steady and seeming heavier Iriz is so solid like when driving and on bumps etc .
I can really feel the compact solidness in the interior and that I feel so safe .
When cruising at 100 to 110 km, there’s hardly any cabin noise like other cars I had driven ( including Jap and European cars ) and mind you , this is only a 1.3 lit car .
I drove to nearby towns 40 to 80 Kms for breakfast or lunch or dinner and won’t feel the stress Nor the weariness of driving it . In fact it keeps me driving more because it’s just drives well , very responsive ( my is the 1,3 manual ) and fun to drive , seats extremely comfortable and great looking dashboard ...... I can drive forever and with that prices !!!!!! It’s a double bonus whammy

    The very first thing that had my attention in the Proton Iriz was its updated highlights that give a mean look to the sporty hatchback. It is an excellent option for the people who need efficient and smooth driving through the city streets and own compact parking space. On the inside, Iriz has the best infotainment system for an interactive Read More

A compact car with a peppy engine is what that is needed at such times to tackle the traffic and find your way to home.

    Do you know that Iriz hatchback from the Proton family first was launched in face lifted version after the tie up of Proton and Geely? So you can obviously expect a much better and sleeker version of the car this time. I am sure you won’t be disheartened if you get a glimpse of this car. Atleast I was quite Read More
