3. Toyota Picnic versus Toyota Wish

Not hard to see why we choose Picnic and Wish to compare, both these Toyota vehicles are formidable MPVs in the automotive industry, especially in the used car markets. Many people can’t make up their minds buying a Tokunbo Picnic or Wish as they are too similar in high performance and functionality. Today, we will put on the scale these two products in certain criteria so that you can see the differences between them.

3.1 Pricing and accessibility

The prices of used Toyota Picnic in Nigeria as seen on the list are from 900,000 to 3.5 million, depending on car type and production year.

As for Toyota Wish, the model was released as a 6-seater at first but several modern versions have come with 7-seat design already. The capsular shape plus 4 vertical headlamps, alloy wheels and the stylish bumper make Toyota Wish a bit more appealing than its Picnic counterpart.
