Toyota Wish is a relatively compact minivan with three rows of seats that can accommodate 7 people. The base for the car was the Toyota Corolla. Since Toyota Wish belongs to the class of minivans, it is fully consistent with popular trends in the market and, thus, has won the recognition of consumers. The exterior of the car is made in a sporty style. Its lines are as if brought into a single monolithic form. Side windows extended to the trunk provide excellent visibility.

Of course, Wish’s trunk is not too large by itself, but you can completely fold back the back seats of the third or even second row, and if you also fold the front seat, you will also be able to carry a long load. The sporting class of expensive trim levels is emphasized by an aero body kit, the steering wheel and gear knob with leather braid.
