The 2016 Proton Persona now has a face, officially. Though we’ve seen it before, it is now teased on the Proton Cars official Facebook page, indicating that a more comprehensive reveal is just around the corner.

Following the Perdana which was launched earlier this year, the Persona is the first of three more to come from Proton in this latter half of the year – the aforementioned Persona this month, the new Saga in September, and to be wrapped up with the Ertiga MPV in October.

Expect the 2016 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 Persona essentially takes after the Iriz, albeit with unique styling front and back.

The Saga appears to be an extensive facelift of the current model, with revised mechanicals, interior and exterior. As for the yet-to-be-named Proton MPV, it will be based upon the Suzuki Ertiga, a small MPV which will see it positioned below the Proton Exora.
