One can expect that the new Toyota Wigo will come with cosmetic updates like a sportier front fascia, new alloy wheels, sharper side skirts, and revamped rear bumpers. TMP hasn’t released any official specs just yet for the 2020 model.

However, we can see from its 7-second Wigo video teaser that most of its chrome finishes are now in black trims. The wheels are also finished in black. These subtle changes could give the Wigo a sportier and bolder look.

Currently, the Wigo is powered by a 1.0-liter 3-Cylinder 1KR-VE gasoline engine that is capable of generating 66 hp at 6,000 rpm and 89 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. This is coupled to either a 4-speed automatic transmission or a 5-speed manual transmission.
