PROTON IRIZ 1.3 LIMITED EDITION FROM THE PROTON 'DESIGN SERIES' & FUTURE UPDATES ON THE IRIZ
National car company Proton has unveiled the PROTON Design Series Iriz. The Limited Edition Iriz comes in 2 variants, the Iriz 1.3 standard CVT and the Iriz 1.3 Executive CVT with Honeycomb or The Stripe decals. The Honeycomb decals are found on the Graphite Grey and Cotton White coloured cars and the Stripe decals on the Fire Red and Atlantic Blue coloured cars. Only 2,000 units of the Limited Ed. Iriz will be available with prices starting from RM44,450 to RM49,130 for Peninsular Malaysia.
Do note that these cars are just dressed up Iriz with some stickers and they have the same list price as the normal Iriz. I suppose this is okay if you want your new Iriz to have stickers at no extra cost. I prefer the Honeycomb over the Stripes. But that being said, they're merely stickers.
The people at Proton are aware of this simple fact but they also state that this is the first of the 'Design Series' of cars which they will be releasing in limited batches. Some will have more detailing than others depending on the model and variant offered. What's more important is that for the moment, Proton is offering up to RM8,000 for selected Proton vehicles in November.
Another important piece of news that I managed to garner from the technical people at Proton is that the Iriz should get the enhancements that have been made to the platform when it became the Persona sedan. The enhancements like the new three point engine mountings and other NVH refinements will be incorporated sometime next year. When this happens, we're going to see a much nicer to drive hatchback in the Iriz. Now, it's only some decals on the outside.
