Toyota has unveiled the 2023 Agya in Indonesia, which will replace the existing model that was first introduced in the Indonesian market a decade ago back in 2012 to tap Indonesia’s Low-Cost Green Car (LCGC) program.
In addition to revised styling inside & out, the new Agya sits on Daihatsu New Global Architecture (DNGA) which offers improved handling and comfort, and has a new suspension system as well & has grown in size too. Although Toyota is yet to officially reveal the technical aspects of the car.
According to executive chief engineer Toshihiro Nakaho, the Agya boasts of an overall length that is comparable to that of many B-segment cars, despite the Agya being an A-segment vehicle. The increased dimensions also result in a better interior space. Nakaho also indicated that the Agya gets a new engine without mentioning specifics. Two variants have been unveiled for the Indonesian market– the G and the GR Sport.
The new engine could possibly be the 1.2L WA-VE three-cylinder engine that produces 87 hp of power and 112 Nm of torque & is used in lower-specification variants of the Daihatsu Rocky and Toyota Raize in Indonesia. In comparison, the current Agya in Indonesia has the 3NR-VE 1.2L four-cylinder engine that makes 87 hp and 108 Nm and comes paired to either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic gearbox.
