  • Overview

    First introduced in 2016, the Proton Iriz joined the B-segment hatchback market eager to give the reigning Perodua Myvi a run for its money with all kinds of gadgets and creature comforts that easily trump the competition. Though Perodua responded to the challenge with a new generation of the Myvi 2018, Proton was quick to update their challenger as well. The 2019 Proton Iriz features 5 variants, ESC and traction control on all variants and 6 airbags and the comprehensive GKUI infotainment unit on the Premium variant to sooth a techy's soul. (Perodua Myvi vs Proton Iriz; what are the differences?)

    Design

    Since the facelift in 2019, the Proton Iriz gained a piano black roof and a new modern grille with a chrome line running across it. Instead of continuing with the pre-facelift's sophisticated looks, the new Iriz looks sportier and more aggressive than before.

    Dimensions

    The Iriz measures in at 3,945 x 1,722 x 1,554 x 2,555 mm in length, width, height and wheelbase.

  • Interior

    Centre Console

    Unlike most of its fellow Proton siblings, the Iriz prides itself on useful cubby spaces and the facelifted 2019 version continues the baton. There cup holders and cubby spaces aren't just well distributed around the driver and front passengers, they are also deep enough to be put to good use and easily accessed.

    Dashboard

    Though the plastic quality used to make the dashboard is a little rough, the Iriz's interior is still stylish and modern overall.

    Space

    The Iriz definitely doesn't lose out on space, a person measuring at 175 cm sitting in the rear seat will still be able to fit 3 tennis balls between their knee and driver's seat so everybody gets plenty of space to stretch.

    Boot

    Comparatively, the Iriz loses out when it comes to boot space. But the rear seats are easily folded away to allow for larger items to be transpored.

  • Driving Performance

    View the 2019 Proton Iriz Review

    Acceleration

    According to our internal test results, the 1.6-litre Iriz engine makes the 0-100 km/h sprint in 11.6 seconds, while the 0-100-0 km/h journey takes 15.8 seconds.

    Engine Performance

    The 1.6-litre engine in the facelifted Iriz is reportedly much more refined than the pre-facelift. But that doesn't translate to speed. Though it has a bigger capacity than competitors like the Honda Jazz, the Iriz is still slow off the line with mild delays in power delivery.

    Transmission Performance

    Though a much more smoother unit compared to its Proton cousins' clunky gearbox, the Iriz's CVT is still far from being perfect. The Iriz's gearbox is slow to respond and forces the engine to hover at 3,000 revolutions constantly. It's definitely not the quietest or the smoothest CVT you can get on the market but it is still an improvement compared to the other Proton models.

    Steering and Handling

    Since its years working with Lotus, Proton rather perfected what is now popularly known as "Proton Ride and Handling". The popular handling style was clearly injected into the Iriz's drive. This is where the Iriz stands out from the rest of the B-segment hatchbacks, as the Iriz is quick to respond around the corners and nimble to manoeurve around tight spaces.

  • Ride Comfort

    Sound Proofing

    While the rattling issue in the pre-facelift has been dealt with, the facelifted Iriz still doesn't have a quiet interior with measurements starting at 69 db at 60 km/h, the numbers will only climb higher as you progress through the speeds.

    Passenger Comfort

    The Iriz rides on Macpherson Struts up front and Torsion Beams at the rear. The setup is one adjusted to give the car the title of a "driver's car" but it still offers an incredibly supple ride so passengers are comfortable even after long hours of travelling.

  • Fuel Economy

    Fuel Consumption

    Fuel consumption is not great on the Iriz. Our real world tests that saw the car go through stop-go traffic and highway cruising returned 8.36L/ 100 km.

  • Conclusion

    2019 Proton Iriz rear quarter view

    It took many tries for Proton to make a mark in the B-segment hatchback market and they have finally found the recipe with the Iriz. True, the Iriz is still not as popular as the Perodua Myvi, but the Iriz has definitely collected a loyal following as a driver centric car. With the GKUI infotainment, the Iriz is also making its mark as a true techy car that keeps its passengers well connected as well, easily distinguishing itself from its closest competitors including the Honda Jazz and Toyota Yaris.
