Most consumers were left scratching their heads when Borneo Motors (BM) introduced the new Wish earlier this year. Instead of competing directly with the parallel imported 1.8-litre model equipped with the CVT box, BM chose to bring in the 2.0-litre model fitted with the conventional four-speed auto.

Though the Wish from BM came with a slightly larger capacity, the 1.8-litre model still possessed a couple more ponies than it does. Furthermore the higher selling price of the BM Wish was also a moot point for consumers.

Well it seems that the powers that be have heard the consumers and have recently brought in the 1.8-litre model equipped with the CVT gearbox and Valvematic engine.

Externally the 1.8-litre CVT equipped Wish differs little from the previous 2.0-litre model as most of the improvements have been done on the internals of the MPV.

Nevertheless, despite being targeted for an older crowd, the Wish's design is still modern enough for you not to be mistaken for taking Daddy's ride out for the night.
