2 generation
(XE20) 04.2009 - 03.2012
2 generation
In the second generation, the minivan Wish has retained its stylish appearance and high functionality. This car is designed for different tastes and any lifestyle, including active. Wish has grown slightly in size, and the base model, for example, falls into the “5 number” category according to the Japanese classification (that is, it has a length of up to 4.7 m, a width of up to 1.7 m, a height of 2 m and an engine not more than 2000 cc), however, in addition to it, there are two modifications with a wider body. The total weight of the car also increased slightly, and the wheels are now not 15, but 16 inches. The main priorities in creating the Wish remained the affordable price, ease of operation, capacity and fuel economy, while the car can be considered as a potential competitor (depending on the priorities of the buyer) to such popular Toyota models as Isis, Noah, Fielder.
 As in the previous generation, for Toyota Wish retained the former wealth of trim levels. But even in standard equipment, this minivan is able to please the owner with a lot of useful options. The steering column is adjustable in two planes. The driver's seat offers a wide range of adjustments - back and forth at 240 mm and 60 mm in height. Above the glove box is a shelf in the form of a tray with a recess, where it is convenient to put, for example, an umbrella. Numerous holders, hooks, cup holders are scattered around the cabin. Automatic air conditioning - with pollen removal mode. An additional ECO indicator is also used as standard equipment on all models and tells the driver the most efficient engine operation. A feature of the three rows of seats in the Wish cabin is that their arrangement can be changed in a wide variety of combinations. In addition, this model has a comfortable trunk. The interior, although it provides for fabric upholstery of the seats, but in expensive trim levels it has anti-allergenic treatment. In addition, the car may have a smart key, starting the engine with a button, cruise control, an optitron dashboard.

 Engines on Wish are fitted with a 1.8- or 2-liter four-cylinder DOHC and Valvematic variable valve timing system - Toyota's innovative, improved valve timing system that changes the valve lift depending on engine conditions and provides high fuel economy. The transmission on all models is variable-speed, which also allows to reduce fuel consumption.

 Toyota Wish suspension has not changed globally. In front are MacPherson struts, at the rear there is a torsion beam on front-wheel drive cars (except for Z equipment) or a double-lever design on all-wheel drive modifications and Z equipment. In comparison with the previous generation, the wheelbase remained unchanged. The minimum turning radius, however, was reduced to 5.2 meters, which provides good maneuverability in urban parking conditions. The car is friendly for people with disabilities - some versions are equipped with a retractable passenger seat, and also provide the ability to control disabled drivers.

 Some progress has also been made regarding security. Toyota Wish comes standard with LED taillights. In addition to ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, an electronic stability control system has become the standard. An intelligent parking assistance system (IPA) is available as an option. The set of airbags has expanded - frontal and side airbags, as well as curtains that provide overlap along the entire length of the passenger compartment, including the third row, are standard equipment. The body of increased rigidity provides excellent protection against shock from all sides. Active head restraints are the same standard as three-point seat belts for all seats.

 Toyota Wish and in the second generation shows a high class, so many may have a completely justified desire (in fact, its name is translated) to buy this car. The second generation is represented on the Russian market, albeit not as widely as the previous one (nevertheless, the price gap is quite significant), but on the whole it is quite good, and many cars have minimal mileage and excellent technical condition.
