Overview of the Toyota Calya
Toyota Calya itself first paved in Indonesia in August 2016.
This model is here to complement Toyota’s product line in the Low Cost Green Car (LCGC) segment, especially the Multi Purpose Vehicle (MPV) model.
Low prices, cabins fit many passengers, and fuel efficiency are some of the attractions it offers.

The fog lamp housing on the Daihatsu Sigra is also made wider than that of the Toyota Calya.
The rim design between the two models also has some differences.
Then for several variants, the Daihatsu Sigra body can be said to be a little more crowded because of the sticker attached.

However, besides that, Sigra also has a 1.0L engine option. This option cannot be found on the Toyota Calya.
Toyota Calya Is it Wasteful?
The Toyota Calya itself is an LCGC. According to the regulations, this kind of car is expected to reach a fuel consumption level of 20 km per liter.
However, the level of fuel efficiency of a vehicle depends on several things, such as driving style, fuel quality and traffic conditions.
LCGC Use What Fuel?
According to the regulations, LCGC cars must use gasoline with octane 92 or diesel with CN 51.
Unfortunately, the reality on the ground is that there are still many stubborn LCGC owners using fuel that they shouldn’t.
What is the price of the newest Toyota Calya?
Monitoring in February 2023, the price of the latest Toyota Calya is in the price range of IDR 161.7 million to IDR 184.4 million.
