The 2020 Toyota Wigo is all set to go up against its segment rivals

The Toyota Wigo first made its debut in the Philippines last 2014, and was Toyota Motor Philippines’ (TMP) challenger in the local small hatchback segment.

Since then, the Wigo has been one of the popular cars in general and particurlay hot-selling Toyota new cars in the Philippine market. In fact, TMP reported that the Wigo tallied a total of more than 18,000 units sold last year.

Now, TMP has digitally launched the new 2020 Wigo that comes with a sportier design along with a starting price of Php 568,000. TMP’s small hatchback is still powered by the same 1.0-liter gasoline engine.

From the looks of it, the facelifted Wigo is all set to go up against its segment rivals such as the Honda Brio, Mitsubishi Mirage, among others.

Say hello to the 2020 Toyota Wigo

At first glance, you can see that the 2020 Wigo is fitted with redesigned headlights as well as a more aggressive and sharper-looking front bumper.

You can’t also help but notice the Wigo’s new front grille, which looks larger as compared to the outgoing model. The front grille features a honeycomb pattern as compared to the horizontal design of the old model.

The 2020 Toyota Wigo comes with revamped taillights and new wheel design

The wheel design also comes with a new look, which we find more appealing as compared to the old one. In addition, the 2020 Wigo also gets revamped taillights. Overall, we think that the styling of the facelifted Wigo is better as compared to its predecessor.    

Inside, the Toyota Wigo features an interior layout that’s similar with the outgoing model. It comes with a black interior theme along with silver accents. However, Toyota added red stitching patterns on the Wigo’s seats, as well as a digital air-condition display, push start button, and a new rear camera for the TRD S and G variants. The TRD S varriant is also integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, voice command feature, and a dashcam.

Under the hood, the 2020 Wigo is still powered by the same 1.0-liter gasoline engine that delivers 65 hp and 89 Nm of torque. The engine is connected to either a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic.

However, we do wish that TMP has also offered the 2020 Wigo with a 1.2-liter gasoline engine that’s available in other select markets. The said engine can generate 87 hp and 108 Nm of torque.
