After much speculation, facelift teasers, and speculation, Toyota has finally launched new Vigo, a mini hunchback within the Philippines. The vehicle is among most loved cars within the country thanks to its compact size, shape, and reliability of Toyota. The new model is chicer, edgier, and livelier as compared to the last model. However, the new Vigo has several similarities in exterior looks with Daihatsu Mira. The Japanese automaker has launched this car in four different trim levels. First one named base-level Vigo E comes with a 5-speed manual transmission worth PKR 1.85 million. The other is Vigo G with a cost of PKR 2 million and comes with the 5-manual transmission. While, Vigo G with 4-Speed automatic drive are often bought at PKR 2.15 million. Fourth and final named Vigo TRD with 4-Speed automatic drive is worth PKR 2.28 million. Engine and Performance: All variants of the latest Vigo accompany a 3-cylinder 12-valve 1.0-Liter DOHC VVT-i petrol engine that generates 66 horsepower at 600 RPM and 89 Nm of torque at 4000 RPM. The mentioned engines are often mated with either 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission, counting on the variant one buys.
The general engine performance is sort of almost like the all-new Suzuki Cultus launched in Pakistan. Exterior: Like the remainder of the planet and Pakistan, the overflow of traffic and congested roads are major issues within the Philippines. Henceforth, this compact design is extremely popular in its domestic market. This small and reliable hunchback is among the simplest options for a consumer to travel from Point A to Point B with ease within the rush hours. At the front, the car features a more expressive and distinct bumper featuring new sleek headlights and a more elegant grille. The front of the vehicle looks pleasurably imposing with a feel of dominance. Meanwhile, the trunk of the car looks rather busy for a little hunchback. The dominant and crowd pleasing taillights extend on the trunk. The rear bumper of the TRD variant comes with a bunch of faux vents and two reflectors, which is undoubtedly a bold design choice by the corporate . However, it depends on the customer, whether he likes it or not. Furthermore, the purchasers can choose between six different colors with each variant.
The corporation has launched this model in black, silver metallic, red, white, orange metallic, and gray metallic. Car Prices in Pakistan are available here. The vehicle also comes in optional Race-Course Yellow color TRD trim. The TRD model also comes with side skirts, a two-tone rear spoiler, different lighting units, and TRD decals and badges. Interior: Toyota has also tweaked and upgraded the inside of the Vigo. The new model comes with redesigned seats as high-end variants have power side mirrors and buttocks camera. Meanwhile, base E-trim levels only offer manually adjustable side mirrors and one DIN stereo.
In higher variants, the purchasers would get a digital AC panel, keyless entry, touchscreen infotainment system, and push-start ignition. The TRD variant also has an Apple Car Play and Android Auto infotainment system. Furthermore, all variants of this model get ABS, 3-point seatbelts, driver-passenger seat airbags, and child lock protection. Talking with the media at the time of launch, Toyota Motors Philippines (TMP) President Atsuhiro Okamoto said the New Vigo remains an iconic car that gives similar reliability and particularity of its previous models. “The car has been made more advanced, safer, more fun, more convenient and more stylish with the TRD variant,” Okamoto said. Just like Pakistan, a big portion of the Philippines population is young, which suggests this car has a superb chance to strengthen its place within the country further.
