The smallest Toyota in the local lineup is about to receive another facelift. After making its debut in Indonesia last March, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is gearing up for the launch of the 2020 Wigo facelift.
But just how much will the Wigo be once it officially debuts in the country? According to an insider that wished anonymity, the refreshed hatchback will be available in a total of four variants. The entry-level model will start at PhP 568,000 for the 1.0 E M/T. Meanwhile, the 1.0 G M/T and 1.0 G A/T variants will reportedly sell for PhP 623,000 and PhP 658,000 respectively. Finally, the most expensive version is the 1.0 TRD S A/T which will supposedly retail for PhP 700,000.
If these prices are to be believed, that means the E variant will receive a PhP 11,000 price increase while the G models will get a PhP 27,000 price hike.
Sadly, it looks like we will not be getting the higher displacement 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine which makes 88 PS and 102 Nm of torque. Set to be carried over for the 2020 refresh will still be the 1.0-liter three-cylinder mill which puts out 66 PS and 89 Nm of torque. Transmission choices will still include a five-speed manual gearbox, and a four-speed automatic transmission.
As far as exterior and interior changes are concerned, the A-segment hatchback gets a bolder-looking front fascia courtesy of edgier headlights and a more aggressive front bumper. Also getting a redesign are the alloy wheels and taillights which now have clear covers for a fresher look. The cabin, on the other hand, largely remains the same apart from the new digital air-conditioning control (reserved for high-end variants), new seat patterns, and an optional engine start/stop button.
TMP is scheduled to officially launch the 2020 Wigo next week.
