2013 Toyota Wish look more sporty and stylish than previous models. This minivan gets revised interior and exterior. Freshness exterior grille looks on, the decoration on the back door, rear lights with LED turn signal side mirrors in the house, new alloy wheels and sporty bumper (certain types). Interior revisions include the use of carbon coating, cloth upholstery, color meter cluster.
This is a facelifted version of the second-generation Toyota Wish but on the outside, it’s a bit more different than what you would expect for its minor model change. The Wish 1.8X and the Wish 1.8G variants feature a rather simple design with some silver lining in the middle of the grille. On the 1.8A, 1.8S, and the 2.0Z variants, the front view is much more better looking and the bumpers are a bit more stylish yet sporty. Whichever Wish you choose, the rear lamps are now a bit more chrome than the previous pre-facelift model or maybe it’s a hint of something altezza-ish.
On the interior, well, same thing. You still carry up to seven passengers, you still fold them to accommodate various seating arrangements, and that’s it. Nothing. You don’t expect something special but when it comes to interior colors, it’s a difference. For instance, the top of the line 2.0Z variant comes with the two-tone coloring of black and orange. Then, the entry-level 1.8X model comes with either beige or black, whatever floats your boat. Also differs were the instrumental clusters. The top-level 2.0Z and the 1.8G comes with optitron meters while the 1.8S, 1.8A and 1.8X come with analog meters. Also, the 2013 Toyota Wish now comes with a Nanoe option that is fitted on the aircon and some say, it helps protects your skin and hair from dry air during the long drive. Really? Mind you, that Nanoe stuff sourced from Panasonic just doesn’t make sense at all…
