Proton has released the first teaser of the upcoming 2016 Proton Persona, the second of the three sedans it plans to launch this year, slated to arrive this month. The video of its Safety360 initiative features the Iriz-based four-door heavily, albeit with camouflage still covering the car.

The film shows the Persona undergoing several tests on its test track, including those for its ABS and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) systems. As such, we can at least conclude that the Persona will have them, although whether they’re standard fitment or not – as they are on the Iriz – remains to be seen.

We’ve already seen the Persona undisguised, during what appears to be a photo or video shoot. Influences from the Iriz are very clear, but the sedan gets a unique front end with a full-width chrome bar above the slimmer reflector headlights, plus a redesigned front bumper.

The short boot gains almond-shaped tail lights linked by another chrome bar, plus a large diffuser-like rear valence. Additionally, the video also gives us a peek at the interior of the Persona, and we can see that the pod-like centre console and instrument cluster appears to be identical to ones on the Iriz.

Expect the Persona to come with the Iriz’ range of 1.3 litre and 1.6 litre VVT engines, mated to either a five-speed manual or a CVT. The car is the first of a three-model blitz, with the Saga expected next month and an MPV based on the Suzuki Ertiga coming in October – all this on top of the Perdana that was launched in June. That’s quite a schedule, huh?
