The latest version of Toyota’s super-successful Aygo city car doesn’t simply have a sharp new look for 2018. The Japanese manufacturer has also introduced a package of improvements to spice up the car’s fun-to-drive qualities and made its popular 1.0-litre engine even more efficient.
Furthermore, the new Aygo’s grade structure has been revised with each version distinguished by different front bumpers, dedicated alloy wheels and interior finishes.
From the entry-grade x, to the mid-grade x-play and the high-grade x-clusiv, each version has been tailored to appeal to the tastes and needs of different target customers. All are offered in five-door format, with the range-starting x version additionally available as a three-door. The launch price at Inchcape Toyota Nottingham starts at £7,995 this includes an Inchcape saving of £1,700
Also available with 0% finance and 5 years service plan.
The x-play is at the heart of the Aygo line-up and offers a tempting extensive spread of standard features ranging from air-conditioning to steering wheel-mounted audio switches and also including LED rear lights and an x-touch multimedia system with DAB and Bluetooth.
Drivers choosing an x-plore Aygo further enjoy 15-inch machined alloy wheels, front fog lights, automatic air conditioning, automatic headlights, rear privacy glass, a reversing camera and satellite navigation. It can also be specified with a power-retracting canvas Funroof.
Choose an x-cite version and you get a car which stands out thanks to its Magenta Fizz bi-tone paint finish and matching interior with Manhattan seat fabric and magenta stitching plus body-coloured inserts for the air vents and gear-knob.
The x-cite also comes with a piano black instrument panel and gear lever surround,15-inch black alloys and front fog lights as well as automatic air conditioning and automatic headlights and rear privacy glass.
A real bonus for buyers of the latest Aygo is the availability of Toyota Safety Sense, which uses a camera and laser sensors to scan for vehicles ahead. It’s a standard feature of the top-of-the-range x-clusiv and an optional extra on other versions.
It means there’s a lot to be said for choosing the x-clusiv, a model distinguished by its distinctive bi-tone paint schemes, twin spoke alloy wheels and exceptionally high specification. Here is an Aygo with part-leather upholstery, automatic air conditioning, smart entry and start plus an x-touch multimedia system which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Finally, there’s the Aygo x-press with just 2,500 examples available this year. Its striking exterior features a full roof decal and coloured accents, plus 15-inch black alloys.
