Overview

The fact that Toyota Wigo was crowned with the title of the Best Micro Car in the Philippines for the year 2014-15 clearly depicts that this cute little Toyota car enjoys a customer base that no other hatchback has been able to garner in the Philippines automotive market. Calling the Wigo a perfect ‘people's car’ can in no terms be marked as an understatement, as it has constantly been ranked in the top 5 best selling cars list in the Philippines. Be it customer satisfaction or value for money factor, the Wigo has trumped all its competitors, by a huge margin.

Interior & Features

With an extremely budget-friendly price tag, we just can’t expect a premium interior from the Toyota Wigo. And the above sentence is verified as soon as you enter the car. The all-black dashboard has been designed while keeping utility and practicality on a much higher priority, as compared to look and feel. Materials used are hard to touch, some parts just won’t last the entire life of the car, and the oomph factor that every car should have is certainly missing. But all this doesn’t matter since the Wigo doesn’t really lack on features which would be desired by its target audience. If you are comfortable with the exterior designing of this tiny Toyota hatch, the interiors won’t disappoint you either.

The exteriors make it apparent that the Toyota Wigo is a tall-boy design, meaning that it has a higher roof height than normal hatches. And hence, one would expect that ingress and egress in the Wigo would be as easy as that in some of the crossovers. But the lower seat height does make it a pain to board the car, especially for elderly people. But once you are in, there is simply nothing that you could complain about, if you can just ignore the quality of materials used.

The 3-spoke steering wheel is a joy to hold and gets aptly sized thumb contours at the 10-2 position. The circular horn pad is surrounded by silver accents which successfully break the monotonicity of the cabin. Similar silver inserts can be found in the center console and around the gear lever. The instrument cluster gets a 3-pod design, with the speedometer in the center, tachometer at the left, and a digital MID and warning lights at the right. The MID can depict various parameters like time, distance covered, and also has an odometer and fuel gauge.

In terms of features on offer, the Wigo clearly justify the price tag it is currently retailing at. Manual Air Conditioning is standard across all variants along with the driver and front passenger airbags. Entertainment needs of occupants too have been taken care of, as the base 1.0E trim gets a 1DIN music system with 2 speakers, which is compatible with FM, AM, USB, MP3, and AUX inputs. Meanwhile, the top-end 1.0G Wigo gets a 2DIN 6-inch system, with CD support and 4 speakers.

Move to the rear, and you will surely be amazed by the amount of space on offer, especially keeping in mind the Wigo’s compact exterior dimensions. There's enough legroom for a 6-footer, while the broad bench ensures that 3 people on board won't be a squeeze. The taller roof too is a boon for headroom, and the larger windows ensure that the cabin doesn’t feel claustrophobic, despite the dark color theme.

Exterior

One look at the Toyota Wigo makes it apparent that the company’s designers were asked to sketch a car that would appeal to a wide spectrum of audience. As a result, the Wigo gets looks that would neither please, nor offend anyone. Minimalistic cuts and creases give it a smooth profile, while the compact dimensions are apparent when you see it from the side. Since there aren’t any significant bolstering and contours added on any of the body panels, it is expected to age well over a large period of time.

The front gets a smiling character line that blends from the front grille to the headlamps, while the simplicity gets contrasted by chubby and triangular chrome-surrounds for the fog lamps. Chrome inserts have been used across the entire exterior of the car, including a chrome strip running along the width of the front grille and air dam.

Chrome treatment gets a bit more apparent as we move to the side, the Wigo gets chromed door handles and side molding. While this looks good on lighter colors, on darker shades the chrome inserts look a bit out of place and don’t integrate seamlessly with the car’s overall character. While the entry-level 1.0E variant gets 13-inch steel rims with wheel cap, the 1.0G trim has been blessed with funky looking 14-inch alloys.

The tail end gets a relatively sporty profile due to the roof mounted spoiler with high mounted LED stop lamp integrated. The tailgate features minimal design cues, and adorns the Toyota's insignia and the Wigo badge, both finished in chrome. Simply styled taillights blend with the rear bumper to provide a continuity to the car’s profile.

Dimensionally, the Toyota Wigo is the smallest car in its segment. But this can in no terms be stated as a disadvantage, as the folks at Toyota have managed to optimize interior space while keeping the exterior dimensions compact. This not only ensures an easy to drive character but, also helps to park at tight spots in our crowded cities.

Mileage Running Cost

While the engine response is quite decent, it simultaneously acts as a bane for fuel economy as the Toyota Wigo mileage is rated at just around 10-12 kmpl in the city. The only way to extract good economy from this powertrain is to continuously cruise around the 70 kmph speed, which is highly rare in our traffic conditions.

Ride & Handling

For efficient handling and to absorb shocks, the front wheels are employed with McPherson strut along with coil spring front suspension and semi-independent torsion axle beam with coil spring rear suspension system. This complete braking and suspension system keeps the running of this hatch smooth and comfortable.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

Toyota has equipped the Wigo hatchback with a 1.0-litre inline 3-cylinder engine, that is capable of generating 65 PS of power and a peak torque of 85 Nm. Though these output figures may sound a bit lower as compared to the competition, the fact that the Wigo weighs just 800 kgs makes things acceptable, since its power-to-weight ratio is at par with other 1-litre hatches. This engine can be opted with either a 5-speed manual gearbox in the base 1.0E trim or a 4-speed automatic in the higher 1.0G variant.

Step on the throttle, and it is immediately apparent that the Wigo’s power mill has been not tuned for performance. Off the line acceleration can be best termed as leisurely, as the Wigo just doesn’t pick speed with ease. In the manual variant, one needs to ensure that the car is in the perfect gear for making overtaking maneuvers or attacking those traffic gaps in the city. But once the Wigo crosses the 30 kmph speed, it all becomes a lot more comforting. The engine delivers performance in a linear manner, while the automatic transmission makes driving in the city an easy job.

But where the Wigo really disappoints is in the fuel economy parameter, especially in the automatic variant. The first two gears of the Wigo AT can propel the car to a max speed of 60 kmph and 100 kmph respectively, making it apparent that the automatic gearbox has been given longer gears.

Braking & Safety

Toyota has always taken the safety of its passengers very seriously and so it has loaded its Wigo with numerous active and passive safety features. This drive is employed with SRS airbags for driver and front seat occupant so that they may experience minimum impact after a hit or accident. Also, there are 5 seatbelts for all the passengers along with pretensioners and load limiter to keep them firm on their respective seats even after an impact to avoid any further injuries. The child lock protection feature given at rear door ensures that your child may not unlock the door accidentally in moving car. Apart from the safety of the passengers, there are features which keep the vehicle safe. You get anti-theft system with immobilizer to keep this hatch safe from any theft. With all these features, you also get Anti-Lock Braking System for a stable and controlled drive.

    A beautiful and simple city car

    Tired of running after public transport modes, I decided to buy my very own car I can drive myself through the busy city streets. I was going through every suitable option that fit in my budget, but Toyota Wigo is the one that matched my expectations. The exterior dimension might not be very impressive, but the spacious interior, cosy seats Read More

    An average hatchback

    I don’t own one, but I recently had a chance of riding my friend’s Toyota Wigo and I was not very pleased. The car is really spacious from the inside but it is still not comfortable enough for long rides. The NVH is also high. The addition of the VVT-i engine is a plus which has increased its mileage.
