Kuhusu TOYOTA Wish

Every active family with a child desires an MPV that offers exceptional drive performance, comfort, and utility while having a sporty and fun design that complements their dynamic lifestyle. Even though the Toyota Wish was discontinued in 2017 and replaced by the Sienta, it remains a popular choice among smaller families. With a production span of fourteen years and two generations, the Wish has cemented its reputation as a competitive option for a sporty MPV. You can still purchase it from second-hand car dealers like BE FORWARD. Discover how the Toyota Wish can meet all your requirements.

Origin


The Wish was the brainchild of a team from Toyota led by chief engineer Yoshida Takeshi (known for his work on the model year 2000 Corolla). It was designed to compete with Honda's Stream, released in 2000. Finally showcased to the public in 2002 at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Wish left car enthusiasts and critics gasping in awe. The wait was long but well worth it, as the Wish hit the market in early 2003, quickly becoming the talk of the town. With its sleek design, impressive features, and exceptional performance, the Wish was destined to be a game-changer in the automotive industry.

1st Generation


Across Japan, drivers had their New Year's Wish granted with the release of the awaited MPV from Toyota into the domestic market in January 2003. The Toyota Wish fell within the dimensions of the Japanese small "number five" vehicle, while the front-hinged rear door and a relatively low body height (1590 mm for the front-engine, front-wheel drive FF model) contributed to the Wish's sporty look. Three rows of seats allowed the Wish to seat six or seven comfortably, and if needed, you could split and fold down the second and third rows of seats to create a flat and ample luggage space.

At its initial launch, the Wish came fitted with a 1.8L 1ZZ-FE inline four-cylinder petrol engine capable of 132 hp. A 2.0L 1AZ-FSE inline four-cylinder petrol that produced 155 hp was added to the lineup as an option in April 2003. Drivetrains for the first generation Wish were FWD and 4WD. For its transmissions, the 2.0L FF FWD model was fitted with a CVT transmission, whereas the 1.8L FF and 4WD models received a four-speed automatic. All models used a MacPherson strut suspension at the front, and a torsion beam rear suspension, except the 2.0Z and 4WD models that utilized a double-wishbone rear suspension.

2005 brought several updates for the Wish, including updates to the dashboard, climate control buttons, headlights, LED tail lights, and bumpers. Also, a new seven-speed automatic transmission was given to the 2.0Z.

2nd Generation


The second generation Wish was every bit the "smart multiplayer" it was purported by Toyota to be. Released in April 2009, this final generation of the Wish retained everything that made the first generation great - its compact "number five" size, the utility of three rows of seats, and its low height, while adding on improvements such as a seven-speed Super CVT-i transmission and valvematic system to improve drive and environmental performance, as well as new features like active headrests, a 10-speaker Wish Panoramic Live Sound System, and dust mite-resistant seat covers.

In 2012, the second-generation Wish was given a facelift to feature cosmetic changes like a dashboard meter cluster, a revised front grille, new headlights, taillights with LED inserts, and a rear tailgate decoration.

Engines for the second generation were either the 1.8L 2ZR-FAE or the 2.0L 3ZR-FAE, both of which are inline four-cylinder petrol and make use of Toyota's Dual VVT-i technology.

Engine Performance & Technology


The Wish gets many of Toyota's exciting engine technologies, making driving it even more enjoyable.
The 1.8L and 2.0L engines of the second generation come with Toyota's Valvematic technology, a continuously variable valve-lift mechanism that controls intake valve-lift volume and valve timing to produce the optimum power at all speed ranges and provides advanced environmental performance.
Toyota's Dual VVT-i, which adjusts timing on both the intake and exhaust camshafts (versus intake-only in the VVT-i) to deliver even more power and fuel efficiency, also makes an appearance in the petrol engines of the second generation Wish.

Toyota's Super CVT-i (intelligent CVT automatic transmission), which maintains the engine RPM at the optimum level for superior fuel efficiency and power response, features across both generations. The seven-speed Super CVT-i transmission of the second generation improves fuel efficiency by almost 15% over the previous model. Thanks to these, the fuel efficiency of the second-generation Wish comes in at a whopping 16 km/l for the 1.8L and 15.2 km/l for the 2.0L.

Finally, the seven-speed Sports Sequential Shiftmatic transmission, which allows the driver to enjoy manual-transmission-like operation, is standard on the second generation.

Safety & Reliability


The Wish is equipped with several standard safety features, which include ABS (Antilock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) and BA (Braking Assistance). Optional features include Traction Control System (TCS) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC). The Wish comes with front ventilated and rear disc brakes as standard, except for the 1.8X 2WD, which comes with rear drums.

Trim Configurations


The second-generation Wish gets four model grades. They are the basic 1.8X, upper-class 2.0G, sporty 1.8S, and top-of-the-line 2.0Z.

Enthusiasts will want to take a look at the 1.8S and 2.0Z that come with paddle gear shifts for F1-esque dynamic and responsive gear shifting. The 1.8S also gets the CVT sports mode which increases acceleration and deceleration responsiveness, while the 2.0Z comes with Dynamic Sport Mode, which, in addition to increasing acceleration and deceleration responsiveness, uses traction control systems and electric power steering to take corners at speed.

There's no wonder why the Toyota Wish has won the hearts of so many looking for a sporty MPV. Make one yours at a great price with us here at BE FORWARD!
