Starting with the exterior, the model has been equipped with a new fascia which features recessed accents beneath the restyled headlights. Toyota says this change transforms the car’s X-shaped front end into a “more powerful, three-dimensional architectural element.”
Additional changes are limited but the Aygo features new taillights as well as a revised color palette that includes blue and magenta. Lastly, the model can be equipped with “technical-look” wheel caps or 15-inch alloy wheels.
Toyota declined to release interior photos but said the cabin has a revised instrument cluster with new graphics and illumination. Most models have also been equipped with new upholstery and there’s a “more premium color scheme in Quartz Grey and Piano Black.”
Three different trim levels will be available and the mid-level Aygo x-play comes with air-conditioning and a 7-inch infotainment system. Moving up to the x-clusiv variant adds an automatic climate control system, partial leather seats and a suite of Toyota Safety Sense systems. The model also boasts a two-tone exterior and unique 15-inch alloy wheels.
Toyota will also be offering two specials editions. The Aygo x-cite has a two-tone magenta exterior and 15-inch alloy wheels with a black finish. Inside, there are body-color accents and special seats with magenta stitching.
The Aygo x-trend goes in a different direction as it has black exterior with cyan accents and “sporting stickers.” That theme continues in the cabin as drivers will find cyan details and partial leather seats.
Power is provided by an upgraded 998cc three-cylinder engine that features a higher compression ratio, a new fuel injection system and an improved balance shaft to reduce vibrations when idling. Thanks to these and other improvements, the engine now develops 72 PS (53 kW) and 93 Nm (68 lb-ft) of torque.
As you’d expect, the performance is pretty underwhelming as the dash from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 13.8 seconds and the top speed is just 160 km/h (99 mph). On the bright side, the model consumes 3.9L/100km (60.3 mpg US / 72.4 mpg UK) and has CO2 emissions of 90 g/km.
