The Daihatsu Ayla (Japanese: ダイハツ・アイラ, Daihatsu Aira) is a city car, designed by Daihatsu and manufactured by Astra Daihatsu in Indonesia. The Ayla is also sold by Toyota as the Toyota Agya (Japanese: トヨタ・アギア, Toyota Agia), and in the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Brunei, and Vietnam as the Toyota Wigo (Japanese: トヨタ・ウィゴ, Toyota Uigo).[1][6][7] The car is also rebadged, redesigned, and manufactured in Malaysia by Perodua as the Perodua Axia.[8]

The name "Agya" was taken from the Sanskrit word meaning "fast", while "Ayla" means "light".[5]


The car was announced and showed at the 20th Indonesia International Motor Show in September 2012 as Toyota and Daihatsu's answer to the Indonesia government's plan for the Low Cost Green Car (LCGC) program. The car itself is a derivative of the LA300 Mira e:S.[9] 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 used the same 1.0 L 1KR-DE three-cylinder engine in Indonesia until 2017.[4][10]

The first Agya and Ayla were rolled off assembly line at Karawang plant on October 25, 2012, and entered mass production in September 2013.

After a year since it was announced, Agya and Ayla were officially launched and sold to general public on 9 September 2013.

In July 2013, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) announced they will import the Agya in December to compete with the Mitsubishi Mirage.[5] It would have a different name for the Philippine market.[11] In January 2014, TMP announced that the car will be called Wigo,[1] and would use the same 1.0 L 1KR-DE three-cylinder engine as the Aygo.[12]

2017 update[edit]

The Agya and Ayla were updated on April 7, 2017. Both updated version use the same 1.0 L 1KR-VE (for the Agya only) and 1.2 L 3NR-VE four-cylinder engine as the Daihatsu's Sigra, while the 1.0 L variant of the Ayla still uses the same engine as the previous version.[13][14] This update includes new bumper designs, projector headlamp with LED side lights on some variants, LED taillamp, dual airbags, 3-point seatbelts, steering switch controls, side impact beams and improved interior quality.

Ayla Turbo Concept[edit]

The Ayla Turbo is an one-off concept car that was shown at the 26th Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show in August 2018. It is based on the 1.2 L version of the standard Ayla. The two-tone red and black exterior color is partially inspired from the 1984 Charade de Tomaso Turbo. The front and rear bumper design has also been redesigned. The 1.2 L 3NR-VE engine has been extensively modified by fitting a turbocharger that is equipped with intercooler, wastegate and blow-off valve with 0.5 bar (7.3 psi) of boost that uprates the power output to 147 kW (197 hp; 200 PS) and torque to 242 N⋅m (178 lbf⋅ft). Further engine changes include the use of low-compression piston, dual fuel injector, open air filter and stronger connecting rod. The 3-module piggyback has been used to manipulate the engine data for performance orientation, while the exhaust system uses a stainless steel free-flow type with 63.5 mm (2.5 in) of diameter. The interior has been stripped down in order to gain lower weight and the roll cage has been added, along with FIA-certified Sparco racing bucket seats. The AC and other unnecessary features has also been removed. The car made a claimed 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration in 10.3 seconds, 2.3 seconds faster than the standard car (12.6 seconds). The car is still currently in developmental phase and costs around Rp 500,000,000 (US$35,100 as of March 2019) to build.[15][16][17][18][19]

Toyota Motor Philippines launched a massive marketing campaign for the Wigo, featuring actors John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo.[23][24]


In the Philippines, the Wigo has been awarded Best Micro Car of the Year by the Car Awards Group for 2014–2015.[25]


In September 2018, Toyota Motor Philippines issued a recall notice on over 15,000 Wigos produced from April 5 to December 15, 2017. The affected units have a faulty engine wire that may break from engine vibration, resulting in a decrease in engine power and a warning light illumination.[26]
