Three years on from its launch, the Proton Iriz is soon to get a mid-life update, if this photo is any indication. Reader Shafidzul Hafiz has spotted the B-segment hatch wearing a trade plate belonging to the national carmaker, as well as a couple of very minor changes.

At first glance, this top-spec 1.6 Premium model looks pretty much identical to the current car, but on closer inspection you’ll be able to notice the two-tone paint scheme, with the black roof and rear spoiler contrasting against the Fire Red body colour; however, the bodykit is still finished in the same warm grey as before. One can also spot the new Proton badging.

Expect the interior to feature revised trim and colours to match the outside, while the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) refinements featured on the Persona should be found here as well. These include a reduction in the number of engine mounts from four to three, along with a revised ECU for a more linear throttle response.
