It appears that Proton is in the midst of refreshing its lineup – we’ve already seen spyshots of the facelifted Persona, and earlier this month we got our first look at the updated Iriz. Now, a new image from our reader ST suggests that the same makeover is headed to the Saga, three years on from the sedan’s launch.

The development mule you see here is still covered in camouflage, so it’s difficult to see what’s actually changed. It does appear that the rear bumper will see a slight redesign, with a simpler diffuser compared to the outgoing model’s more ornate item. The tail light seem to be identical to before.

Expect a similar revision to the front end – possibly mirroring the facelifted Iriz – along with new wheel designs. As with the Iriz, there may also be tweaks forthcoming for the interior, perhaps with a new head unit not unlike the GKUI-esque system in the larger hatch.

There will likely be no changes under the bonnet, however, with the Saga set to soldier on with the same 94 hp/120 Nm 1.3 litre VVT engine mated to either a five-speed manual gearbox or a CVT.
