The Wigo manages to keep a stylish look despite its price point.

So which variant is the best option at its given price point? We would recommend you getting the TRD S Wigo variant. The Php 700,000 price point is relatively justified with all of its new advanced features, sleeker kits, and better infotainment system.

But if you are on a budget and you want a very practical option, the E MT Wigo variant can still get the job done on the road. All variants are powered by the same engine with the same power outputs – which means that you basically pay the higher variants extra dime just for better styling.
