Toyota Wish is one of the most reliable compact MPV cars I wish I could drive on regular basis. The Toyota Motor Corporation started offering this car in 2003. It is available as a six and seven seater car. There are two engine capacity options available in the car, as 1.8 liters or 2.0 liter. It is positioned below the Ipsum and above the Spacio in the Toyota minivan range. The Japanese manufacturer introduced the car under the “Wish Comes True” slogan in early 2003.
It is a great people mover car with reasonable engine size. The car is closely related to the once popular Corolla Hatchback. Due to its economic size, it quickly became a top seller soon after its introduction in the Japanese and South-east Asian markets. Its durability and size have made it as a taxi in many countries of the world.
Reviewing Toyota Wish
It became a popular car in Japan from the beginning. The car is long and narrow at the same time. It has outward-opening type rear doors. Several seating arrangements are available for the car. As seven people can sit in the car, there is not much room left for putting your luggage. Ideally speaking, it can accommodate five people easily. The rearmost seat can be folded to put a lot of luggage. It has quick and light steering.
It is a reliable car with a 1.8-litre engine. It has a timing chain which does not require regular replacements. The four-speed automatic transmission is considered very durable.
The larger 2.0-litre engine does seem to have few issues about sudden surges and rough running.
