First-in-class smart features

Both the Persona and the Iriz have a 7’’ touchscreen with 4G*, Wi-Fi* connectivity, Bluetooth and smartphone pairing*. We bet you had this experience dealing with navigations while you were in the middle of driving— yes it’s so inconvenient and unsafe! Equipped with Voice Command* you can now enjoy smooth navigation by just saying “Hi Proton!” and tell your buddy in the armour where you would like to go, without any hassle. That’s not all, you can stream music online in your car! –We know, we are excited about that too. Now, who is down with the idea of a weekend road trip?

Comfort and convenient   

If you want a family car that can accommodate your family members –with extra comfort–and huge boot space to place all your baggage, 2019 Persona is the one you are looking for. With comfy semi leather upholstery seats and a 510L boot, you can now hop on and travel around with your family anytime you wish. As for those who are not a fan of big booty cars, you might want to consider the 2019  Iriz. With a sleek and sporty design, Iriz has a sporty gear knob* that is very handy and stylish, along with a borderless rearview mirror* that gives you A+ comfort while driving.

Head-turning designs 

With a 5 star ASEAN NCAP rating, the 2019 Persona and Iriz offer both top-notch safety and eye-catching design. The 2019 Persona has an elegant and sleek design new boot spoiler, trendy-looking LED daytime running lights (DRL)* and revised bumpers—both front and rear. The revamped family sedan comes in 5 different colours – Rosewood Maroon, Ruby Red, Snow White, Armour Silver and Jet Grey. The youthful-looking 2019 Iriz on the other hand, is geared with a new grill, a bolder front and attractive back. With its conveniently compact oh-so-sporty look, the Iriz is set to be the trendsetter this year.


Now, the highlight of the day is definitely the jaw-dropping price. Four variants are offered for the new Proton Persona, starting with the 1.6L Standard MT (RM42,600), 1.6L Standard CVT (RM44,600), 1.6L Executive CVT (RM49,600) and 1.6L Premium CVT (RM 54,600).
