All-new Agya/Wigo built in new DNGA architecture
After almost a decade, Toyota's smallest hatchback for the ASEAN region has finally gone for a full model change.
Toyota Indonesia has officially held the world premiere of the all-new Agya/Wigo. With a new platform and a host of added features, the manufacturer says the second-generation model is a city car that's designed to excite.
While we don't have the official dimensions yet for the all-new Agya / Wigo, the hatchback visibly looks bigger than its predecessor, and part of that is because it is underpinned by the same Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) platform found in the Avanza/Veloz, Raize and the upcoming Vios.
In terms of its looks, the aggressive front end with the narrow headlights is reminiscent of the Raize crossover, but the all-new Wigo distinguishes itself by having a large grille. The rear on the other hand gets visibly larger windows and reshaped taillights.
Inside, the familiar dashboard design found on the Raize, Avanza, and all-new Vios also found its way to the all-new Agya / Wigo. It gets a digital A/C unit of its own, while an engine start/stop button and a digital gauge cluster may be reserved for higher variants.
For its powertrain, the biggest change lies in the transmission option for the all-new Agya / Wigo. Instead of a conventional 4-speed auto, the all-new Agya / Wigo is now being offered a D-CVT for improved fuel consumption, acceleration, and refinement. Official power figures have not been revealed yet, but according to the live premiere, the all-new Agya/Wigo engine has more torque and horsepower.
Another new addition to the all-new Agya / Wigo is a GR Sport variant, which features different-looking bumper designs, unique wheels, and a two-tone paint scheme. Like other GR Sport models, we can also expect the all-new Agya / Wigo to have special GR bits on the interior.
ASEAN NCAP has already deemed the all-new Agya / Wigo (under the Perodua Axia name) worthy of four out of five stars in their latest tests, so expect the new hatchback to be one of the safest in its class.
With Malaysia's Perodua brand next to launch after the Agya / Wigo hatchback, we can expect more details to come and in turn, give us more things to expect once the second-generation model eventually arrives here in the country.
