For color options, only the top-spec G is available in Red Mica Metallic 2 and Orange Metallic 3, while only the entry-level J may come in White 2. The G and E trims also get access to the Yellow SE color option, but all trims may come in Silver Metallic 4 and Gray Metallic.

Last but not least for the exterior, is their dimensions. For this, all three come with identical figures at 3,760mm long, 1,665mm wide, and 1,515mm tall. All three trims also get the same 2,525mm long wheelbase, and 160mm of ground clearance. 

Toyota Wigo Variants: Interior

All Wigo trims can comfortably seat up to five occupants including the driver. All three also get fabric-clad seats, an analog meter cluster, a digital trip meter, a day & night rearview mirror, three cup holders, and a total of four bottle holders.

The rest meanwhile, features a standard manual climate control system, a four-way manual driver’s seat, and turn-key ignition. Also, only the G and E get steering wheel-mounted controls. 

For on-board entertainment, the G and E variants are kitted out with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This system features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and voice commands. The J meanwhile, gets a simpler 1-DIN audio system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity.

Inside the G trim, sound from the entertainment system is fed to its cabin by a four-piece speaker system. The E and J variants, on the other hand, only get a total of two speakers. 

Toyota Wigo Variants: Engine

Under the hood of all three 2024 Wigo trims is a 1.0-liter inline-3 gasoline engine. All three get the same tune that outputs 66 horsepower and 89 Nm of torque. The Wigo and all its variants are all front-wheel-drive.

The entry-level J however, stands out among the three trims as it is the only one that gets a five-speed manual gearbox. In turn, the top-spec G and mid-spec E get a continuously variable transmission (CVT). 

Toyota Wigo Variants: Safety

Handling safety for all three Wigo variants are anti-lock braking, vehicle stability control, and hill-assist control. All trims also get dual front airbags and ISOFIX child seat anchors.

Toyota Wigo Variants: Conclusion

It’s pretty straightforward when you’re choosing which 2024 Toyota Wigo variant is right for you. The higher the trim, the more safety and convenience features you get. In this case, the G variant is the most complete Wigo though the mid-spec E might be close as it gets the same on-board entertainment system. 

For buyers who want a manual, however, the only choice they have is the entry-level J. All trims though, do make the same amount of power and have the same braking and suspension systems.

Both the top-spec G and the mid-spec E come with a CVT. The J meanwhile, gets a 5-speed manual gearbox.

In the end, we urge serious buyers to take each for a test drive. The variant guide can only do so much, and getting seat time on these trims is just plain better than merely reading off specs.
