Confirmed: 2020 Toyota Wigo facelift set for PH debut on June 15

Updated Sep 28, 2020 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

Say hello to the more aggressive and sportier Toyota Wigo.

You might have heard about the Wigo facelift before when Toyota Indonesia released it in the Indonesian market last March 2020. In case you’re wondering, the Wigo is marketed as the Agya in Indonesia.

The new Wigo is fitted with cosmetic upgrades that give it a fresh, fiercer, and sportier appearance as compared to its predecessor.

The facelifted Toyota Wigo that debuted in Indonesia is equipped with a 1.2-liter engine that is capable of producing 87 hp at 6,000 rpm and 108 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.

It is mated to either a 4-speed automatic transmission for the top-spec variant or a 5-speed manual transmission for the base variant.

Now, the Wigo facelift is coming to the Philippines and is set to be launched online on June 15, 2020 by Toyota Motors Philippines (TMP).

No specs have been released just yet but we can expect it to be as aggressive-looking as the one in the Indonesian market. And since it's just a facelift, expect the same engine and transmission options of the current Wigo available locally.

We can also expect some new features like a new and sportier front fascia, improved side skirts, altered taillights, and new alloy wheels. Inside, it may be equipped with a new push-start ignition, a revamped infotainment system, and a new A/C control panel.

However, TMP hasn’t released any official pricing for the Wigo facelift but we can expect it to be around the same price point as the current Wigo available in the market.

The Wigo is arguably one of the best-selling Toyota in the local market. Last year, TMP reported that the Wigo tallied a total of 18,183 units sold.
