From the new X-shape front end element that defines Aygo’s hip new look, to the alloy wheels, instrument panel and seats, owners can give their car its very own style.
In spite of the huge number of possible permutations, with up to 10 interchangeable elements, customers will not face a long wait for their bespoke new Aygo to arrive, nor will they face huge extra cost. The customisation packs have been keenly priced and they are fitted by Toyota in the UK, to customer order, at a new hub set up at Toyota Manufacturing UK’s Burnaston factory in Derbyshire.
Customisation is just one aspect of the fresh, vibrant approach Toyota has taken with its new city car, with higher equipment specifications that include plenty of “big car” features, such as the new x-touch multimedia system with MirrorLink function for smart connection of mobile phones. New Aygo is also the first in its class to offer a rear-view camera and it can be specified with Smart Entry and push button start.
New Aygo will be launched in the UK in three and five-door bodystyles and three grades, x, x-play and x-pression, plus two special editions, x-cite and x-clusiv, offering customers exceptional choice.
The colours ramp up new Aygo’s fun factor, with five options: White Flash, Silver Splash, Electro Grey, Deep Blue Buzz and Red Pop. In addition, the x-cite will be offered only in Orange Twist and the x-clusiv in Bold Black.
The x-cite and x-clusiv models can be upgraded with the x-tra premium pack, which adds leather seat upholstery and Smart Entry and Start. For x-play and x-pression grades, the INstyle option provides leather seats with accents in a range of four different colours.
The x-pression can be specified in x-tra convenience, which adds automatic air conditioning, dusk-sensing headlights and Smart Entry and push-button start.
The OUTshine pack adds extra chrome touches to the exterior of the x-pression model, and all versions bar the entry level x can be fitted with the OUTshield pack, which adds front and rear parking sensors, a boot liner, aluminium scuff plates, rubber floor mats and mud flaps.
Taking affordable multimedia systems to the next level, Toyota x-touch gives new Aygo customers a user-friendly combination of the latest on-board multimedia technology and smartphone connectivity.
x-touch uses a seven-inch full colour touchscreen that is fully integrated in the instrument panel. It is the first system in the segment to provide a rear-view camera as standard.
The main menu has a simple five-icon arrangement, allowing at-a-glance identification of all functions.
The Audio Source menu groups AM/FM/DAB radio, Bluetooth music streaming and audio via Aux and USB connection, with the facility to display album cover art.
A new MirrorLink function can be activated through the Connect menu. Once a compatible smartphone is connected, MirrorLink will replicate the phone’s screen and compatible applications on the x-touch display. Smartphone functions can ben be accessed using the touchscreen.
New Aygo hits the road in the UK from 1 July with on-the-road prices from £8,595 – reduced to £7,995 with the benefit of a £600 customer saving offer.
