The second-generation Toyota AYGO builds on the achievements of its predecessor, providing city car drivers with a capable vehicle boasting higher equipment levels and increased customisability whilst retaining the original version’s economical and practical nature.
Visionary changes to the vehicle’s design, meanwhile, make this car highly distinctive on the road.
Discover the new Toyota AYGO at the Lancaster Toyota dealerships in Durham and Sunderland.
Stylistically speaking, the boldest and most noticeable change to the the new AYGO's exterior design is the bold “X" shape which dominates the car's front profile, running from the A-pillars to the bottom corners of the bonnet. Narrow headlights and a wide front grille emphasise the vehicle's assertive looks. The degree of customisation available to buyers regarding exterior design is unprecedented on a budget city car; the colour of the “X", nose cone, wing flashes and rear bumper inserts can all be specified by the customer. The AYGO cabin can be personalised to your taste in a similar manner. It is possible to choose the colour of the interior plastics, dashboard trim, and even the steering wheel. The slightly increased dimensions, moreover, mean that the new model's loadspace has increased to 168 litres. Expanded headroom and legroom, as well as a revamped suspension, also enhance comfort.
Over half of the AYGO's frame is now constructed from high-tensile steel.
Together with six airbags and Isofix points for the rear seats, this most compact of vehicles therefore guarantees a superb level of protection to its driver and passengers.
The array of active safety measures standard on the car, including Anti-Lock brakes and Hill Start Assist also help drivers to more easily prevent the structure being put to the test.
The Aygo’s 1.0 litre, three-cylinder petrol engine provides 69bhp, in addition to combined fuel economy of 68.9mpg and carbon output of 99g/km – a figure low enough to exempt it from Vehicle Excise Duty. Short gearing make it easy for the AYGO to reach the required speed from junctions and traffic lights, while the power steering and tight turning circle result in excellent manoeuvrability.
Air conditioning is standard to all editions of the new AYGO, whilst optional convenience features include an “x-touch” entertainment system with a 7” touchscreen and a rear-view parking camera.
