When it comes to mini hatchbacks, the Toyota Wigo has proven itself to be a dominant force of this diminutive domain. Since debuting in 2014, this little Toyota has become a popular choice among car buyers looking for an affordable ride from a trusted carmaker. Naturally, people were excited to see what the face-lifted version had to offer.

Turns out, it's got plenty. At first glance, you can see right away that its got a tougher edge to its look, thanks to a redesigned front fascia and sharper lines all around. Inside, there's a new touchscreen monitor and added seat trims, though the driving position is a bit hit and miss.

The biggest change here is the new VVT-i powertrain, which is a welcome change from the old sluggish one. Now, the acceleration is smoother and more refined.
