Everything You Need To Know About the New Proton Iriz

Cars have been a major source of transportation from one place to another for a very long time, the first car as we know it was built by Karl Benz, known as the inventor of the car and the founding member of Mercedes Benz. Back then the cars were expensive and were considered to be vehicles only for the rich and wealthy. But ford created the model T which revolutionized the motor vehicle industry and we got cars for the everyday person. Now cars were able to be bought by normal people and hence came into existence all the cars we know and love today. In recent years car have been getting quite good at providing safety, comfort, reliability, and many other things that we look for in a car today and if we compare today’s cars to the ones we were getting 50 years ago, cars today are so much better that we can’t even put it on the same page.
Today I was looking at some cars and it got me wondering about the new cars that are coming to the market, and what I found was many people are getting smaller and fuel-efficient cars as compared to the gas guzzlers people were driving almost 25 years ago and companies have also started to produce cars that are more fuel-efficient than their older versions. In all of these thoughts, I came onto applications like wapcar, where I found the perfect car that people should start using and try to save the world in the process.
The car I found is the Proton Iriz, it is a small and beautiful looking hatchback that people should be driving if they still want to drive gas-powered vehicles. It comes in 5 variants and the specs vary for each one of them. Today we will be discussing their most premium version and what the car entails.

The car comes with two engine options. The first one is a 1.3L engine that produces around 100 horsepower. The other engine option is the 1.6L engine that produces around 110 horsepower from a 4 cylinder DOHC engine. The displacement of the two engines is 1332 and 1597 cc respectively and these engines can produce around 120 to 150 Nm of torque. The mileage of the car has not been provided by the company but judging by the engine and the weight of the entire car, I can safely assume the car’s mileage will be around 18L and since the car has a 40L tank, the car will be able to travel around 720 km to a full tank.

Transmission Specs

To reduce confusion the car comes with a standard continuously variable transmission. This type of transmission has been used in many cars before and has proved to be a reliable transmission that a company can use in its cars. The transmission is designed for excellent riding comfort and it keeps working for a long time without causing any troubles.
