The All-new Toyota WISH
Japan Domestic Version Glamorously Arrives in Hong Kong
The Premier Export Market out of Japan
The Japan domestic version of the new Toyota WISH will be making its grand entrance to the Hong Kong market soon!
Crown Motors Ltd strives for the distribution rights of Toyota WISH Japan domestic version from the manufacturer and eventually makes Hong Kong becomes the first export market out of Japan! Besides the original 2.0 litre version adopted with upgraded features, customers can have a choice of the all new 1.8 Advantage or 1.8 Luxury version .The new WISH comes equipped with the latest “VALVEMATIC” engine technology and ”Super CVT-i”, delivering faster engine response with enhanced maximum output and torque. Local Toyota fans can be the first to experience the improved performance of the much acclaimed vehicle outside Japan domestic market.
The All-new Toyota WISH Launch Party was held at the Toyota Wanchai Showroom today, attracting hundreds of media and guests. Our guests of honor, Mr. Patrick S Lee, the Managing Director of Crown Motors Ltd and Mr. Makoto Nagano, the Assistant Chief Engineer of WISH from Japan, gave a speech to the guests followed by an unveiling ceremony.
The Japan domestic version of the new Toyota WISH is benefited with the latest “VALVEMATIC” engine technology, a system that improves combustion efficiency. With the computer, it controls the valve’s open and close timing as well as the amount of lift. As a result this helps to improve fuel economy, engine output and response, and provides cleaner emissions. These developments enable the WISH to be granted the Government’s tax incentives for environment-friendly petrol private cars.
A 7-speed Sport Sequential Shift-matic is appointed to enable manual-like shifting operation, with +/- mode and paddle shift, along with a double wishbone suspension*, creating a more high response and powerful ride at high speeds.

In addition, the All-new WISH is also equipped with Dynamic Sport mode (WISH 2.0) and CVT Sport mode (WISH 1.8). CVT Sport mode provides quicker response. When decelerating, it can help achieve an appropriate amount of engine braking. Furthermore, the system is capable of holding the engine at a higher RPM after the accelerator pedal is released in order to facilitate subsequent acceleration.
On the other hand, Dynamic Sport mode combines the operation of Traction Control (TRC) and Electronic Power Steering (EPS) with CVT Sport mode. It provides sportier feedback when cornering. EPS provides more steady steering feeling, and maintains ideal posture into corner.

New Toyota WISH 2.0
The new body design of the WISH 2.0 includes a stylish front grille and sporty new front and rear bumpers with matching side skirts. Varied from the previous model, the new WISH 2.0 is equipped with 6 seats, encompassing captain seats in the second row to ensure a more comfortable and spacious passenger ride. These features, including the enhancement of the engine, transmission and suspension, along with Dynamic Sports mode, represent the energetic and fashionable personality of the latest evolution of the WISH 2.0.
Other attractive and important features for WISH 2.0 include:
Modern and Energetic Exterior:
* Aerobody’ sports body kit (NEW)

In terms of practicality, the maximum luggage capacity has had its width increased by 95mm. The slimmer seatbacks for the seats increase legroom for the rows behind it. Front diagonal visibility is better by attaching the side mirrors to the door panels and reducing the width of the A-pillars. Seat covers have been treated with an anti-mite agent, and the climate control system has the Camry’s Plasmacluster air-purifying technology. The steering wheel is both tilt and reach adjustable.
