The Proton Persona is set to get a model update soon, it seems – reader Nazli Zakaria has spotted the B-segment sedan on a trailer wearing a spangly new set of alloys.

The wheels, which look to retain the current 15-inch diameter, appear to have been taken off its Iriz sibling in the latter’s top-spec 1.6 Premium trim – except the two-tone finish seen on the hatchback has been ditched for a standard monochrome look. Perhaps the quirky directional design of the current car’s rollers hasn’t been well-received by customers.

Aside from that, the car seen here is identical to the outgoing model. This will be the second minor product update for the Persona since it was launched in August last year – it already sports the updated touchscreen infotainment system introduced on the Iriz for the 2017 model year.
