    • Ratings: 2022 Proton Iriz Active - How much better is this updated Myvi rival?

      Besides the Perodua Ativa, theres another model that vies for the title of Malaysias most talked-about local car this year - and thats the 2022 Proton Iriz Active.For good reason too. It was first conceptualised way back in 2014, and its only made production 7 years later.The 2014 conceptFast forward to 2021, and this Active variant is the range-topper of the updated Iriz lineup, which was launched alongside the facelifted 2022 Proton Persona.

    • Review: 2022 Proton Iriz Active – more tech, but has the CVT improved enough?

      What do you look for in a daily runabout? I would hazard a guess and say – fuel efficiency, space, and low maintenance cost. With those criteria, it’s little wonder that the Perodua Myvi tops the sales chart year after year.Proton’s attempt to steal the thunder was, and perhaps still is, with the Iriz. Evidently, that didn’t go as well as Proton had hoped, but I’ve always had a soft spot for the Proton Iriz. The biggest bugbear personally is the CVT despite the cont

    • What's the difference between a car's model year, manufacture year, and registration year?

      If you are an avid reader of WapCar.my, you may often see the terms model year, manufacture year, and registration year being used to describe the cars we write about. In the case of upcoming models, phrases such as ‘2022’ Honda Civic" or ‘2023’ Mazda CX-8 are commonly used to refer to model years of cars that have yet to be launched. 2022 Proton Iriz, but launched in 2021, hmm...In contrast, if the subject is used or recond cars, then terms like manufacturing year a

    • Video: 2021 Perodua Ativa vs Nissan Almera Turbo vs Proton Iriz Drag Race on KLIA

      It’s not every day you see a dormant runway on Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), no thanks to a global pandemic.Our friends over at AutoBuzz.my, GC Mah (Adrians ex-boss) managed to secure one of the runways for their ongoing Drag Series on YouTube.When they gave us a call to feature our Perodua Ativa in one of the races, I jumped onto the request. After all, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to hoon around on KLIA’s runway tarmac.In episode 4 of Drag Series, they pitc

    • We've tested the new 2022 Proton Iriz and Persona's fuel efficiency, better than before?

      Proton said there are 200 new parts, 32 different quality improvements, and 6 performance improvements (including fuel consumption) made for the 2022 Proton Iriz and Proton Persona facelift.The CVT gets two additional features – Neutral Idle Control (NIC) and Eco Mode. NIC works with the engine management computer to reduce fuel fed into the engine whenever the vehicle is idling. This lowers the engine’s idle speed, thus saving you a little bit of fuel.Eco Mode on the other hand, dis

    • Before the Proton Iriz Active, the CrossPolo and SX4 tried to jack up a niche trend in Malaysia

      The crossover boom has arrived in Malaysia and every carmaker wants a piece of that lucrative pie. For some though, jacking up existing models and putting plastic cladding is one cost-effective solution to hop on the bandwagon.The Proton Iriz Active is one of those crossover hatchbacks that are trying to appeal to buyers who wanted something more active-looking than a conventional hatchback. Still, even if you feel that the Iriz Active is merely a jacked-up Iriz, it is appealing for some buyers.

    • No ADAS but the 2022 Proton Persona and Iriz has one feature every car should have

      The new 2022 Proton Persona and Proton Iriz has been many updates, including 200 new parts, 32 quality improvements, and 6 performance improvements, but ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance System) is not one of them.Proton’s B-segment duo still don’t have an answer to the Perodua Myvi’s Advanced Safety Assist (ASA), something that’s unavoidable given that it’s still running on the same ageing platform that was never meant to support ADAS hardware.Modifying it to accep

    • 6AT mulled, is the Proton Iriz / Persona’s CVT that bad? Here’s what’s new

      On the surface, the new 2022 Proton Persona and Proton Iriz may seem like it’s more of the same. At a glance, both 2022 models are still more or less the same 7-year old Proton Iriz and 5-year old Persona that you know since 2014 and 2016 respectively.Yes, there is now an SUV-esque / crossover-like Iriz Active variant but note that there is no difference to its ground clearance - 165 mm for variants with 16-inch wheels, 155 mm for 15-inch – identical to Persona.The Iriz Active’
