Launched earlier today, the new Proton Iriz is certainly the talk of the town. Across the whole of Malaysia too, most likely. Want to know Proton’s latest B-segment hatchback in more detail? Find out all you need to know and more in less than eight minutes with our exclusive walk-around video of the Iriz.

UPDATE: Our full comprehensive review of the Proton Iriz (1.3 and 1.6 engines, manual and CVT) is now up.

Watch as freshman Gregory Sze walks you through the Proton Iriz 1.6 Premium CVT, highlighting its standout design details and features both inside and out. The exterior differences between this top-spec RM62,438 (solid colour, on-the-road with insurance) model to more affordable variants are covered as well.

What about safety then – how does it compare against its closest competitor, the Perodua Myvi? Watch the short video above to have all those questions answered.
