Toyota Agya Makes Market Debut in Indonesia

It was one year ago almost exactly to the day when we showed you the Daihatsu Ayla and Toyota Agya, two sister cars launched at the 2012 Indonesia Motor Show. The two Asia-specific models were supposed to arrive in the country the same year, that December, but they were hit by delays.

About a week ago, Toyota Indonesia finally announced the market debut of the Agya, followed by a similar statement from Daihatsu.

The reason for this huge delay is that Toyota was waiting for the Indonesian government to announce support measures for its Low-Cost Green Cars (LCGC) program. Certain vehicles with engines below 1.2 liters and fuel consumption below 5 l/100km are eligible for tax reductions.

Both Japanese eco cars are well within the parameters, as they're powered by 1-liter engines producing only 65 hp and 87 Nm of torque. They are also quite light at 740 kg.

Prices for the Toyota Agya start at 99 million rupiah, equivalent to $8,690, and go all the way up to 120 million rupiah ($10,540).

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
