New refreshed model line-up
Toyota is introduced a new Aygo range with improved safety equipment plus new colours and roof decals.
The Aygo is a popular city car and this new refreshed look will be very welcome. The new grade line-up runs from Active and Active plus through to Mode and Move. All the models are powered by Toyota’s award winning 1.0 litre three cylinder petrol engine. It is an extremely economical car returning 65.7mpg and great for the environment and your pocket as Co2 emissions are 99g/km which means there is no road tax to pay. There is also the choice of either three or five door body styles across the range.
Standard safety equipment is now the same in all versions which means even the entry level Active now comes as standard with VSC stability control, curtain airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts and seatbelt buckle-up reminders for driver and front passenger, in addition to the ABS, EBD and driver and passenger front and side airbags that are established features. A 50:50 split-folding rear seatback with detachable headrests has also been added to the Active specification.
The new Aygo Mode is right on trend adding a set of 14-inch eight-spoke Ragno alloy wheels to the specification list that also features front fog lights, rear privacy glass, LED daytime running lights, tachometer, electric front windows, remote central locking and body colour-matched door handles and mirrors. If you opt for the Aygo Move then you will find a neat portable TomTom navigation system that slots easily into place on a folding dock on top of the dashboard. Loaded with the latest map data, it brings with it Bluetooth, a USB port and iPod connection that allows the player to be controlled using the satnav’s touchscreen. Air conditioning, a tachometer and leather steering wheel and gear knob trim are also part of the Move package. There is also the option of adding six spoke alloys, privacy glass and LED daytime running lights to this model.
New colours and features
Another extra is the protection pack which is available for the five door Aygo Mode and Aygo Move, providing rear parking sensors, front and rear mud flaps, carpet mats and side protection mouldings. All versions of Mode and Move can also be treated to a Design Pack, adding front scuff plates, chrome trim at the rear and a chrome finisher on the tailpipe.
There is a range of seven colours for the refreshed Aygo including two new shades. Nero Rosso (available for Mode and Move grades) combines deep red bodywork with a contrasting black roof, and adds gloss black trim details around the cabin. Napoli Blue metallic is exclusive to Move grade, with matching trim on the door panels, air vent and tachometer surrounds.
The new Aygo range is on sale now, priced from £8,595.
