Read our article below to know more about the fuel consumption of Toyota Wigo!
For many drivers, fuel consumption is one of the most worth-considered factors when it comes to buying a car. Especially in countries with a high level of traffic congestion such as the Philippines, having a vehicle with great fuel-saving ability is essential.
Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) introduces the Toyota Wigo aimed at the affordable hatchback segment. With the competitive starting price at P568k and low fuel consumption, the Toyota Wigo quickly approached the local market and gained great support from many Filippinos.
Philtoyota.com will now show you more details on the fuel consumption of Toyota Wigo, and some tips to extend its mileage in the following article.
Generally, the most important factor when determining a vehicle's fuel consumption is its engine. In theory, the smaller the engine, the less fuel it consumes. Moreover, weight also affects the fuel consumption of one vehicle.
Along with its small size, the TMP equips all Toyota Wigo variants with the smallest 1.0 liter DOHC VVT-i petrol engine which can reach 65 horsepower with 89 Nm of torque.
The Toyota Wigo has two transmission options: a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic.
For fuel consumption, the top variant TRD S 1.0 AT was taken to represent the test result of the Wigo. The test is conducted by experts and consists of two parts: Test driving on the city streets and test driving on the highway.
For an average speed of 40 km/h in the city, the average fuel consumption of the Toyota Wigo TRD reaches 15.2 km/L. With the EDSA route (exactly from Pasay to Trinoma), this figure is quite impressive. On the other hand, on the highway, the average speed of the Toyota Wigo TRD reaches 90 km/h. It continues to surprise testers with economical fuel consumption of 24.3 km/liter.
Overall, the Wigo TRD variant is quite heavier than others, with a body kit consisting of a rear skirt, a side skirt, a TRD rear spoiler, and a front spoiler. Just so you know, heavier weight means higher fuel consumption.
It would be best for you to save more fuel with the E and G Wigo variants.

Although the Toyota Wigo is super fuel-efficient, you can always save more fuel when using this hatchback. The list of four tips below can help you get the most out of fuel efficiency:
1. Always make sure the pressure of the Wigo tires meets the manufacturer's regulations.
Traction will increase when you run with lower tire pressure than the specified level. That high drag will cause the engine to work harder, which in turn increases the fuel consumption.
Always make sure your Toyota Wigo 14-inch alloy wheels will meet the required tire pressure.
2. Avoid Heavy Loads While Driving
The Toyota Wigo is a small hatchback, not a multi-tasked and bulky pickup as the Hilux. Therefore, the load-bearing capacity of the Wigo is only on average, sometimes can’t even compare to other models in the same segment. Besides, its 1.0 liters engine also does not reach the high rating.
The heavy loads carried on the Toyota Wigo that is packed with small and light features will exceed its load capacity and increase fuel consumption.
3. Select Gearbox
With the ability to change gear more often than manual transmission (MT), the auto transmission (AT) has a higher fuel consumption performing on the same engine. Not only that, drivers who are familiar with the workings of revs and gears can save more fuel when using a manual transmission.
For the Toyota Wigo, you can choose the E or G variant with a manual transmission to improve fuel economy to the maximum.
4. Follow The Scheduled Periodic Maintenance
You should follow the Wigo Preventive Maintenance Schedule (PMS) as specified by the manufacturer to get the best fuel economy in everyday driving. With the new motor oil, every other part of the engine will work smoothly, therefore, the fuel consumption of the Toyota Wigo will also be efficiently lower.
