Top Gear Philippines

Toyota Wigo

During the Vios Cup exhibition race last Saturday at Clark International Speedway, while everyone's attention was fixed upon the racetrack, ours was drawn to the Toyota Wigo unit displayed in the vicinity. The Wigo, of course, is the affordable mini hatchback that Toyota Motor Philippines is launching on the third week of February. As we already reported here, there will be three variants to be introduced, with the following prices:

* Wigo 1.0G AT - P534,000

* Wigo 1.0G MT - P499,000

* Wigo 1.0E MT - P448,000

The variant displayed at the Vios Cup race (the one you see in the photos here) was the top-of-the-line 1.0G AT.

We asked the Toyota staff manning the booth if they already had a comprehensive specs sheet for the new car. Unfortunately, they didn't. Fortunately, we were able to secure the official list of specifications and features through another channel, and we'd like to share it with you.

UPDATE as of May 8, 2018: We wrote about Toyota Motor Philippines' updated price list in response to the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Act (TRAIN), as posted online by one of its dealers. The Japanese carmaker updated its website to make those prices officially official. If you want to see the new price list again, click here. Now, given the tricky nature of vehicle pricing, not all of Toyota's prices increased by the same margins. In fact, some of models even became cheaper. If you've been wondering how much you'll need to pay this year for a new Toyota, we'll keep you posted.
