When it comes to mini car segment, no rivals can beat the dominant position of the Toyota Wigo in our country. This baby hatchback was even awarded as the Best Micro Car for the year 2014 – 2015 and continuously ranked in the top 5 best-selling vehicles in the Philippines for years.

In May 2017, TMP revealed the facelift version of the tiny hatchback Toyota Wigo 2018 and honestly speaking, the refreshed Wigo looks pretty nice inside out.

New Toyota Wigo 2018

Although the exterior changes are minor, they still bring a sharper and more athletic look to the car. On the inside, it is interesting to notice that despite of its small size, the Wigo actually offers generous interior space, making it be one of the roomiest city cars here in the country. The biggest improvement of the facelift Wigo, however, lies at its new engine, which is a 1.0-liter VVT-i dishing out 65hp and 89Nm, mated to a 4-speed auto.

Even with the new excise taxes included, the Toyota Wigo is still one of the best affordable vehicles in the Philippines with new price range from P537,000 to P676,000.

Toyota Wigo Pros & Cons  
 Pros
  • Perfect dimension for city driving
  • Facelift version has a sharper and more athletic look
  • Generous interior space
Cons
  • Only equipped with basic equipment
  • Not really fuel efficient

It is not over exaggerated to state that the SUV segment in the Philippines has been ruled by the Toyota Fortuner for years. Since the first model made its way on the open road over a decade ago, the Fortuner has still remained to be one of the most popular mid-size SUVs in our country.

There are just so many things that we love about this vehicle: a timeless good look, superb ride quality, impressive off-road capability, high fuel efficiency and low maintenance cost to name but a few. Recently, the Toyota Fortuner has received some technology improvement, which has led to an increase in its price tag for all variants. Even so, we still believe that with an increased price, the Fortuner will still be one of the most-wanted SUVs that almost every Pinoy car enthusiast desires.

The 2018 price range for the Toyota Fortuner lineup is from P1,592,000 to P2,260,000, which means an increase of P127,000 for the base model and P17,000 for top-of-the-line model. For further details about this popular 7-seater, read our Toyota Fortuner 2018 review.

Toyota Fortuner Pros & Cons
Pros
  • Spacious interior
  • Improved responsiveness
  • Wide range of prices
  • Timeless good look
Cons
  • No MT options for 4x4 Diesel and 4x2 Petrol variant
  • Third row seat needs improvement to feel more comfortable while sitting

2.3. Toyota Innova 2018 price - Philippines - May: New price tag of  P1,639,000 for range-topping trim

If the hatchback and SUV segment in the Philippines are ruled by the Wigo and the Fortuner respectively, the MPV segment is led by another Toyota car, namely Innova. Ever since the Toyota Innova first arrived in our shores in 2004, it has successfully kept its crown as one of the most-preferred MPVs as well as best-selling models in the Philippine auto market.

All-new Toyota Innova

Last May 2016, the all-new Innova was introduced to Filipino car enthusiasts, featuring a redesigned exterior that visibly set it apart from earlier model. Its interior was also renovated with comfort for the driver and passengers. Continuous improvement and refreshment have helped this 7-seater further enhance its leading position in its segment.

With the new excise taxes, price of the top-of-the-line Innova has gone up considerably by P128,000, from P1,511,000 to P1,639,000. Fuller information about the Toyota Innova 2018 can be found here.

Although the current generation Toyota Vios has been on the market for over 4 years and is now due for update, it is still a fierce rival to other vehicles in its segment. The Toyota Vios was introduced to Philippine market in 2002 to replace the Toyota Tercel and immediately attracted great interest from Filipino car lovers.

Years after, the model has still topped the best-selling cars in the Philippines in both the small-car segment and the passenger-car market. Not only having a firm stand in the domestic auto industry, the Vios has also occupied the Philippine roads as service vehicles and even taxi fleets. Despite its same old appearance, the sedan still gets buyers excited thanks to its strong engine and, most importantly, affordable price tag.

The Vios enjoys a relatively slight increase by as low as P12,000. In detail, the base model is now priced at P629,000, instead of P617,000 while the top-spec Vios can be had at P1,058,000, instead of P1,024,000.

With an aggressive appearance, comfortable cabin and a powerful engine, it is not difficult to understand why the Toyota Hilux has been one of the most popular pick-up trucks not only across the globe but also here in the Philippine market. The continuous improvement in exterior, interior and under the hood has further strengthened its position in its segment.

Not only holding the leading position in hatchback, SUV and pickup segment, the Japanese carmaker even demonstrates its significant role in the Philippine automobile industry with its hot-selling Toyota Hiace.
