Toyota has revised the line-up of the much-loved Toyota Aygo city car. There are now four trim levels – Active, Active plus,Mode and Move, and each benefits from improved safety kit, while Mode and Move models also boast a raft of big-car equipment.

Entry-point Active models come equipped with VSC stability control, curtain airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts and seatbelt buckle-up reminders for driver and front passenger as standard – this is in addition to the ABS, EBD and driver and passenger front and side airbags previously offered. Practically gets a boost too, thanks to the addition of a 50:50 split-folding rear seatback with detachable headrests.

Style is at the heart of the Mode model, which wears 14-inch eight-spoke Ragno alloy wheels, and has front fog lights, rear privacy glass, LED daytime running lights and body-coloured door handles and mirrors.

The Aygo Move focuses on luxury and tech, offering standard air conditioning, a leather steering wheel and gearknob, and an intuitive portable dash-mounted TomTom sat nav system – incorporating mapping, bluetooth, and a USB port and iPod connection.

To help keep their Aygo showroom fresh, buyers can specify a Protection Pack on five-door Aygo Mode and Move models, consisting of rear parking sensors, front and rear mud flaps, carpet mats and side protection mouldings. For a further dash of style, a Design Pack adds front scuff plates, rear chrome trim and a chrome exhaust housing.

There are now seven colours for the Aygo. New hue Nero Rosso is available on Mode and Move models, and combines deep red bodywork with a contrasting black roof, while Napoli Blue metallic is exclusive to Move grade.

A bold new range of roof decals is available  and includes Union Jack designs in red-white-and-blue or monochrome, and a chequered flag. White gloss, and gloss or matt black contrasting roof colours are also available.

All of the Aygo’s winning qualities remain, with Toyota’s acclaimed 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine under the bonnet and still boasting tax-busting emissions of 99g/km and an official combined economy figure of  65.7mpg.

The new Aygo range is on sale now, priced from £8,595. Three and five-door models are available across the range.

  1. It’s a shame the toyota website hasn’t been updated with the new Aygo models though. Still showing the old model specs and brochures.

  2. it’s not deep red at all…the rosso red may as well be just red. Bog standard plain red lol saw one today and wasn’t the nice deep pearl red you get on the yaris for example.

    🙁
