Sportier and bolder design
Sportier and sleeker in design, is the first impression of the all-new Toyota Wigo.
The youthful character of the vehicle gets an even more dynamic and bolder look with its larger headlights, a more prominent grille, a bigger grille opening, and wider fenders, taking cues from larger Toyota models such as the Vios and Avanza.
The fluid design language flows through the polarising grille which is further highlighted by the slim horizontally-oriented LED headlights, giving it a sportier look and aggressive appearance.
Moreover, dimensionally, the entry-level car is bigger and wider than its predecessor with an overall length of 3,760mm, a width of 1,665mm, and a height of 1,520 mm.
The increased height over a passenger car provides excellent visibility and makes getting in and out a breeze while the body size makes it easy to manoeuver.
Apart from the sportier body design, the compact hatchback also looks good wearing 14-inch alloy rims.
With an aggressive aerodynamism design that would attract the younger generation, the hatchback also comes in four colours: White, Black, Gray Metallic and Red Mica Metallic
