Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has launched the 2020 Wigo with updated looks along with a starting price of Php 568,000. The Wigo is TMP’s challenger in the local small hatchback segment, which includes vehicles such as the Honda Brio, Mitsubishi Mirage, Suzuki Celerio, among others.
Since its introduction in the local market last 2014, the Wigo is considered by many as one of the popular Toyota models in the country. A testament to that is the Wigo’s sales performance last year, which tallied more than 18,000 units sold.
So, what’s new with the 2020 Wigo? Well, use our slider to help you spot the differences between the old and the new Toyota Wigo.
Toyota Wigo Old vs New: Exterior
Old vs New (front): 2020 Toyota Wigo
At first glance, you can instantly notice that the Wigo’s fascia comes with a new look, which we find more stylish as compared to the outgoing model. The 2020 Wigo gets a new front bumper that looks more aggressive and sharper as compared to the old model.
The new Toyota Wigo also comes with a restyled grille design that now comes with a honeycomb pattern and a new shape. Rounding up the design changes on the Wigo’s front is the slightly redesigned headlights.
Overall, we prefer the new front end design of the Wigo as it makes the small hatchback more aggressive, stylish, and even sportier.
Old vs New (side): 2020 Toyota Wigo
Turning at the side, you can see the 2020 Wigo rides on a new set of machine cut 14-inch alloy wheels, which exudes a more stylish look compared to the old one.
You’ll also notice the Wigo’s doors are now cleaner compared to the old model, and it now only comes with distinctive character lines. Moreover, we noticed that the turn signals, which are integrated to the Wigo’s side mirrors, now look more seamless.
Old vs New (rear): 2020 Toyota Wigo
The rear, on the other hand, features a minor design update. The only notable design changes we can see at the 2020 Wigo’s rear is the new taillights cluster, which is now integrated with a blacked-out design.
Toyota Wigo Old vs. New: Interior

In addition, the new Wigo TRD S and G variants feature steering wheel mounted audio controls, rear camera, push start button, and digital air-condition controls. And oh, the TRD S variant also comes with a dashboard camera.

Overall, the design of the new Wigo looks better as compared to the old model. What we like most on the 2020 Wigo is its fascia since it is integrated with new significant design tweaks.
As a result, the new Wigo’s front end looks more composed as compared to the outgoing model. In case you’re wondering, the 2020 Wigo is still powered by the same 1.0-liter gasoline engine that delivers 65 hp and 89 Nm of torque.
