Mar 21, 2023


If you are looking for an A-segment car for under P700k, you are most likely considering the Toyota Wigo vs Suzuki Celerio. This article might have the answer.

1. Toyota Wigo vs Suzuki Celerio - Exterior: Toyota Wigo is more eye-catching

  Suzuki Celerio  Toyota Wigo 
 Overall size (mm)  3600 x 1600 x 1540  3660 x 1600 x 1520
 Headlight  Multi-dimensional reflective halide  Halogen projection/ omnidirectional reflector
 Wheels  14 inchs  14 inchs
 Rearview mirror  Turn on electricity & turn signals  Turn on electricity & turn signals
 Turning radius (m)  4.7  4.7

In terms of specifications and technology, Suzuki Celerio and Toyota Wigo do not differ much. Both have a neat and small appearance, suitable for moving in the street, selling a radius of 4.7m to help the car easily wriggle and turn around.

According to most Toyota Wigo reviews, the look of the Toyota hatchback is mostly appreciated thanks to its active and sporty design. The headlights are sharply designed at corners and tend to expand to the sides to make the head of the vehicle wider. Meanwhile, the grille has a trapezoidal shape combined with a high-diffuser "mustache" for a more eye-catching and modern appearance.

As for the Celerio, the front end is quite simple and quite similar to the old Suzuki Ertiga. The central radiator grille and diffuser below are 2 points of appearance. This minus point in terms of design is probably one of the main reasons for the slow sale of the Celerio.

On the contrary, looking to the side of the Wigo, while owning the same hatchback shape, Wigo still manages to exalt a sporty, and elegant look. The end of the roof is picked up by the spoiler, forming the overall look of a youthful and dynamic car.

The Celerio looks far less impressive than the opponent when it comes to the end of the C-pillar roof which is perpendicular to the tail, making the car look quite outdated despite being an A-class model.

When it comes to exterior design, the Celerio looks less dynamic than the Wigo

Besides, Toyota Wigo also creates attraction with abrasive grinding wheel rims shaped like blades swirling together very delicate, eye-catching. Celerio is simpler, with a set of legs that are familiar 14-inch alloy wheels on toads.

In return, the tail of the Celerio is designed quite balanced and harmonious with an interesting highlight lying in the leaf-shaped tail light cluster facing out. The Wigo’s rear end looks a bit more sophisticated with an angled Y-shaped tail light with a diffuser below with a reflector.

The rear seats have a relatively high ceiling so that people who are 175 cm tall can sit comfortably while knee room is just enough for passengers to avoid being too squeezed in. For long trips, you might not be able to stretch your legs and lean back with comfort. However, both cars can definitely accommodate young families with small kids for short travel.

As budget 5-seater cars, the Wigo and Celero clearly don’t come equipped with fancy features and design. That being said, Wigo and Celerio are still the first choices of many thanks to its durability.
