Toyota refreshes Aygo for 2017 with special edition models

Toyota will be greeting the New Year with two new special edition models of the Aygo for 2017. Called the x-press and x-style, both variants are fitted with a bespoke bodykit, along with other exterior add-ons for a sleeker, sportier look.

First up is the x-press Aygo which gets eye-catching red accents throughout its body. The bright hue can be seen on the custom front bumper, rear diffuser, side sills and on the roof. 15-inch gloss black alloy wheels are shod in the wheel wells, while the door handles and side mirror caps are body color painted. Speaking of colors, the x-press is available in four exterior finishes: Silver Splash, White Flash, Electro Gray and Bold Black.

Inside, the x-press gets blacked-out surrounds for the aircon vents, gear knob and black center console. As for features, an automatic climate control system comes as standard, as well as a digital instrument panel, touchscreen multimedia system and multifunction three-spoke steering wheel.

Next is the x-style which adopts a more sophisticated finish according to the automaker. The X-type front grill, front pillar extensions and rear diffuser are all finished in gray. This kind of finish will only be available when paired with the following exterior colors: Red Pop, White Flash, Bold Black, Deep Blue Buzz and Silver Splash.

If the x-style is specified with the Electro Gray finish, the grill, front pillar extensions and rear diffuser will be painted silver instead. Like the x-press, 15-inch gloss black alloy wheels are available, as well body color painted door handles and side mirror caps.

In-car features from the x-press also carry over to the x-style. These include the: automatic climate control, touchscreen multimedia system and the dusk-sensing headlights. Only available for the x-style, however, are the following: reverse camera, front fog lamps, Bluetooth, power-adjustable side mirrors, DAB radio, leather steering wheel, electric front windows, hill-start assist and LED daytime running lights (DRLs).

Both the x-style and x-press can be equipped with the optional Toyota Safety Sense package that gives the Aygo active safety features such as: pre-collision, autonomous emergency braking and lane departure alert.

In addition, both special Aygo models are powered by the familiar 1.0-liter three-cylinder VVT-i engine that produces 70 PS. Available transmissions are a 5-speed manual and an x-shift automatic transmission.
