The Toyota Wish, first released in Japan in 2003 to fill the gap between the Ipsum (Avensis in Australia) and the Japan-only Corolla-based Spacio, has been a constant top seller in the Japanese market. Built to compete with the Mazda5 and fellow Japan-only MPV the Honda Stream, the Wish continues to outperform both on the showroom floor.
Now the 2009 model is around the corner, and photos of the brochure have leaked onto the interweb. We’re not likely to see the Wish in the Aussie market, but for those who like to see the many cars Toyota don’t give us, this is another good looking car to complain about.
Unlike 2005’s facelift, the 2009 Wish is an all-new model, with updates across the range both externally, internally, and under the bonnet. If you happen to be a family man in Japan, this might be the MPV you’ve been waiting for.
