Proton is very close to launching a mid-lifecycle update for the aging Proton Iriz (and Persona), and this is set of photos shared by reader Amin Yahaya offers us a sneak peek at the 2021 Proton Iriz wearing R3 livery.

We still don’t know what this new special edition Proton Iriz will be called so for now we will just refer to it as the Proton Iriz R3 Edition.

Outside, the Iriz R3 Edition wears the same yellow-black livery first seen in the 1,100 units only 2020 Proton Saga Anniversary Edition. A set of black alloy wheels complete the styling upgrade.

Inside, the new leather seats will have R3 logo embossed on it, similar to what’s already seen in spyshots of the Proton Saga R3 Edition.

The new 2021 Proton Iriz is rumoured to feature similar powertrain upgrades seen in the Proton Saga, dropping the outgoing model’s terribly unrefined CVT in favour of a conventional 4-speed automatic.

Proton Iriz price (outgoing model)
1.3L Standard MT RM 36,700
1.3L Standard CVT RM 39,700
1.3L Executive CVT RM 44,700
1.6L Executive CVT RM 46,700
