New Toyota Wish Review

post rewritten:

Price NT$729,000


The new Toyota comes in four levels, ‘J’, ‘E’, ‘E-Hi’ and the top of the ‘G’.

All models come a four cylinder 2.0 liter and all are equipped with a four automatic gearbox, BAS, electronic steering, electric and air conditioning.

The five door MPV has seats in all with the second and row folding flat when to load all the paraphernalia a family can quite easily albeit for the of having to work around the side hinged doors become even more of a when parked along other vehicles. Many MPVs have done with this issue by side sliding doors with even larger for loading/unloading, which is something I have expected Toyota to caught up to by now with this generation car and is a little disappointing.

The hatch access is simple though and the seats simple to and return. The third row seats are temporary seats as occupants to raise their legs to will likely be an uncomfortable with little room to on long journeys.

The front seats offer support for a driver and passenger and the controls are all within easy making the driving position comfortable. The steering wheel for height as well as rake to things just so. The driver’s seat is electrically adjusted seems to be the norm on upper these days, but which I find more of a time than the manual adjustment on models. Perhaps that’s there is a big height difference me and my wife and any time I get in the car I wouldn’t to spend 30 seconds each waiting for the seat to move to the I need it in.

Some effort has spent to spruce up the interior of the to match the greatly improved which borrows many and slashes from the Toyota but unfortunately there lies poor choices in dash design. The dash, although displays two bulbous air vents prominently in front of the driver as as two squint shaped vents for the which spoil the overall and flow of the front of the cabin. are no better in the ‘G’ top of the range model also has the addition of a ceiling venting system for rear which emanates a cheap row of blue mood lighting.

The car I tested was the E-Hi version comes in at NT$819,000 and is probably the package of the group. It doesn’t with the DVD and Navigation system in the ‘G’ spec vehicle, but it neither with the rather pointless lighting either. At NT$46,000 cheaper than the ‘G’ spec, you can much take your of all the sat nav and DVD systems out there and you’ll likely have some in your pocket.

This explain then why Toyota has the E-Hi as the standard demonstrator They must also that this will be the vehicle for those who wish for all the without the excess.

The chassis has tweaked a little since the model and the suspension handles as well as the brakes handle which is both reasonably There has been some effort in reducing the rear noise that was prevalent in the model and is slightly less so in the new

The electronic power steering in the new is easy to use and adjusts in stiffness as the picks up, but has a remote and dead which takes away the otherwise nice handling by the rest of its systems which include both EBD (Electronic Distribution and BAS (Brake Assisted These systems are a rework of active yaw and electronic stability systems found on some vehicles.

The Wish is let down by its standard tyres and I would to have to bargain an alternative set in a deal on any new vehicle. The wheels easily find traction cornering under reasonably power.

The automatic gearbox on all but the ‘G’ operate as well as can be expected a basic device and that’s fine for a seven seater car. Do stay away the paddle shift on the top of the range however as from experience the automatic boxes do not respond to paddle inputs and become and confusing very early on. drivers will no doubt sticking to the standard D for drive and stick there.

Driving around town the from the cabin was mostly and clear. Of course as with modern vehicles the front ‘A’ offer some narrow spots which are most when turning at intersections, with small portholes This is a little disturbing at if people can pop out from behind whilst crossing the road. its also the price to pay in design raising targets for crash to occupants and pedestrian protection impacts. The E- Hi takes safety into consideration on the inside two front airbags. Toyota is lacking in the airbag department with most of their in Taiwan coming with far bags than are found on models. The Wish is also with ISOFIX child mounting points. It does not the option of disabling the front though.

Power delivery in the is handled rather predictably and of without too much pizzazz as the single engine available is the four cylinder twin cam VVT petrol engine which to produce up to 141ps at 5,600 and pushes a 1,415kg vehicle. this won’t matter to most users who predictably use their vehicles for city and driving. This isn’t a car really needs a bigger or powerful engine considering its and typical users needs.

Overall the Toyota will no be a marketing success, but this to say it’s necessarily the best MPV out there. Selling Toyotas in has always been a doddle as as they have always the main selling points in a market which are reliability, fuel consumption and good

Within the past five though things have to change with stronger in the much-improved Mazda brand. the Mazda 5 still seems to the advantages over the Toyota its more practical interior and side sliding doors, as as sharp styling. Its residuals so far also been extremely as even used models are in demand. It will be interesting to see if still maintains its top spot in in the coming years considering the strengths of its other Japanese

The Toyota Wish then; a car to be in and certainly looks and drives than the old model as well as others. It still isn’t as usable as a Mazda 5 though and so it doesn’t quite take top in the small MPV category. If only could catch up and change side rear doors! for Car Rentals. servicing, Used Car Purchasing. Inspections. and Useful Information on Taiwan
