Toyota Aygo tweaked for 2018
Toyota has updated its Aygo with a new design and increased performance.
Making its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the latest iteration of the brand’s city car – which holds a 6.6% market share in the segment – gets a 2bhp increase for the three-cylinder 1-litre petrol engine to 71bhp while torque remains unchanged at 69lb.ft. Pre-homologation figures show that combined cycle fuel consumption has improved from 68.9 to 72.4mpg – CO2 emissions have not been announced.
The Aygo also introduces changes to the suspension settings and steering software, bringing more reactive performance, while new sealing and sound absorption materials reduce noise and vibration.
Design changes bring an updated front end, including redesigned headlight units, and new seat fabrics for the cabin.
Aygo model grades and equipment features for the UK market will be announced nearer the car’s on-sale date later this year.
