With the addition of the Active, Proton further streamlined the variant list, dropping the 1.3-litre manual option. There are just 3 variants on sale now.
Powertrains are unchanged, with the entry-level the 1.3-litre (95 PS/120 Nm) and 1.6-litre (109 PS/150 Nm) naturally-aspirated four-cylinder mills still seeing duty - mated to a CVT-type automatic driving the front wheels.
Besides styling, the Iriz MC2 also received a tweaked instrument cluster, additional USB ports and new seat upholstery designs on the inside.
The Iriz's main rival, the Perodua Myvi is offered in 5 variants with prices ranging between RM 46,500 for the entry-level 1.3 G (non-PSDA) up to RM 59,900 for the 1.5 AV variant.
