A car that fits the youth and the young at heart

Toyota has just revealed the all new Aygo supermini hatchback at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

The all-new Aygo is 3,455mm long, 1,615mm wide, and 1,460mm tall. Toyota says the Aygo may be a compact car, but has real street presence in its overall design. The designers used the concept of a soft object breaking through the hard shell of the design that creates breaking lines to Aygo’s exterior look. It is designed with a distinctive frontal X-graphic that extends across the surface of the body including the upper and lower grills, headlamps, fog lamps, and side mirrors. The roof of the Aygo has a new pagoda-style profile equipped with a rear spoiler.

At the rear end the tailgate and lower bumper of the vehicle form breaking lines into the design. The taillights are mounted on the hexagonal tailgate and has a wide upper bumper.

The interior of the vehicle has a trapezoidal center console that supports the wide dashboard with a matt anti-glare finish. The instrumentation features a meter made of concentric rings that are permanently lit. Aygo also features Toyota’s new x-touch seven-inch touchscreen multimedia system.

Aygo is powered by a three-cylinder 1.0-liter engine that is capable of generating 69 PS with 95 Nm of torque. Power is transmitted with a five-speed manual transmission or an optional new x-shift, a much-improved automated manual transmission that can be used in fully automatic mode.
