The Toyota Agya is a city car by Toyota, designed by Daihatsu and manufactured by Astra Daihatsu in Indonesia. It is also sold as the Daihatsu Ayla, as well as the Toyota Wigo in the Philippines.[1] The car will also be manufactured for Malaysia as the Perodua Axia.[2] The name "Agya" was taken from the Sanskrit word meaning "fast".[4]

History[edit]

The car was announced and showed at the 2012 Indonesia International Motor Show as Toyota and Daihatsu's answer to the Indonesia government's plan for the LCGC. Initially the car was available for advance booking after the show but it only lasted for few weeks because the manufacturers were waiting for the government to finalize regulation regarding the LCGC. The Agya and Ayla use the same 1.0 liter 1KR-DE three-cylinder engine in Indonesia.[5][3]

In July 2013, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) announced they will import the Agya in December to compete with the Mitsubishi Mirage.[4] It will have a different name for the Philippine Market.[6] In January 2014, TMP announced that the car will be called Wigo,[1] and will use the same 1.0 liter 1KR-FE three-cylinder engine as the Aygo.[4]

After a year since it was announced, Agya and Ayla were officially launched and sold to general public on the second week of September 2013.
