That said, according to our friends over at Funtasticko, LED headlights could be range-topping variant-only feature; lesser variants will soldier on with halogen reflector units. If true, it puts the Iriz at a slight disadvantage against its core rival, the Perodua Myvi, which offers LED headlights on all variants. Even models like the Perodua Bezza and Perodua Aruz feature LED headlights across the range.
Apart from the aforementioned LED headlights, the new 2021 Proton Iriz and Proton Persona are said to drop the current Punch-sourced CVT-type automatic transmission in favour of a more proven Hyundai-sourced four-speed torque converter automatic.
In addition to that, the updated 2021 Proton Iriz and Proton Persona could be receiving some form of ADAS features, seeing that it scored a 5-star rating under the more stringent 2017-2020 ASEAN NCAP test protocol.
