Toyota Optimal Drive improves performance and emissions from award-winning 1.0-litre VVT-i engine.
CO2 emissions reduced to 106g/km. The engineering improvements that make this possible include a new cut-off system that saves fuel during gear changes and the adoption of low viscosity oil for less engine resistance.
With its all-aluminium construction, the 1.0-litre VVT-i is the lightest internal combustion engine on the market, weighing just 67kg. It is also the most powerful in the A-segment, producing 67bhp (68 DIN hp), and it delivers class-leading torque of 93Nm at 3,600rpm. To provide better driveability in urban traffic, the development team worked to ensure strong torque at low to medium engine speeds by optimising the intake system, setting the appropriate manifold length and giving the intake ports a smaller diameter. The three-cylinder configuration also promotes the availability of torque in the low to mid-range, with less "metal" to move at lower speeds. Economy is now improved from 61.4 to 62.8mpg in combined cycle driving with five-speed manual transmission (the figure is unchanged for versions with the MultiMode gearbox at 61.4mpg).
Owners can add more features to their Aygo with a choice of two accessory packs. The Style pack for Aygo Blue (£580) provides alloy wheels, front fog lamps and front scuff plates. The Xtra Protected pack, available for Aygo Blue (£330), includes rear parking sensors, mud flaps and carpets. For Aygo Black the Xtra Protected Pack (£380) also provides side and rear bumper protection mouldings.

05-01-12: Toyota’s Aygo gains a new front-end design, new interior trims, and revised engine now below 100g/km CO2 with EC combined cycle fuel economy above 65mpg. This makes it London Congestion Charge exempt (once registered), free VED, low BIK and subjec to 100% company forst year write down.
Launched at Brussels motor show on 10-1-2011 and on sale in the UK in March.
Front-end treatment that follows Toyota’s new corporate design. Optional LED daytime running lights set into the lower edge of the grille add further emphasis to the look. The re-style has added just 15mm to Aygo’s length; other dimensions – including the tight 4.73m turning circle – are unchanged, making the car as well-suited to life around town as ever.
Extra street style comes courtesy of dark-tinted rear privacy glass for both three and five-door versions, new 14-inch wheelcap designs and a range of seven exterior paint choices, including a vibrant new metallic orange.
In the cabin the look and feel of the fixtures and fittings has been improved. This higher perceived quality can be witnessed in a new dark grey finish for the upper and lower dashboard sections, giving the cabin a more integrated appearance. A new-design steering wheel comes with a leather trim, plus paddle controls on the steering column for models using Toyota’s Multimode automated manual transmission. Adding an extra flash of style, the ring surrounds of the speedometer, tachometer and air vents are finished in grey, orange or black, with the front door speaker surrounds coloured silver or orange. Attention to detail goes as far as changing the opening angle of the rear parcel shelf to give easier access to the loadspace.
Two audio systems are offered – a 35W AM/FM/CD package with two or four speakers, or a new unit that comes with Bluetooth, a multi-language display and a USB port for connecting portable music players such as iPods.
Aygo’s Toyota-designed and manufactured all-aluminium three-cylinder 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine weighs just 67kg and has a revised combustion chamber design that increases combustion efficiency and raises the compression ratio from 10.5 to 11.0:1. It also gains harder-wearing iridium-tipped spark plugs. 67bhp (50kW) at 6,000rpm and 93Nm of torque at 3,600rpm are unchanged. But with five-speed manual transmission CO emissions fall from 105 to a road tax-busting 99g/km and combined cycle fuel consumption improves from 61.3 to 65.7mpg. For versions fitted with Multimode, emissions are down from 106 to 104g/km* and fuel economy rises from 61.4 to 63.8mpg*
Lowest possible UK insurance groups, between 1E and 3E according to version.
Toyota has also taken measures to make life on board quieter and more comfortable. Extra insulation has been added under the bonnet and adjustments made to the clutch system to reduce noise and vibration, and damping performance of the front and rear shock absorbers has been tweaked for a smoother ride.
21-2-2012: Toyota Aygo has both better looks and more efficient performance for 2012. The new range is available in the UK with prices little changed or even cheaper than the previous line-up.
A revised Aygo line-up introduces special Fire and Ice versions for 2012.
Aygo Fire comes equipped with 14-inch alloys, front foglights and LED daytime running lights, rear privacy glass, leather steering wheel and gear knob trim and a rev counter. Owners can also ramp up the hotter look with a new Burnt Orange paint finish, with matching side protection mouldings and interior trim.
Aygo Ice’s specification puts the emphasis on in car comfort, entertainment and connectivity, featuring air conditioning, Alcantara and leather trim, a more powerful four-speaker sound system that is DAB-ready, Bluetooth and a USB port for connecting digital music players.
The entry level Aygo and the Aygo+ carry over their specification from the 2011 model year.
An Xtraprotected Pack is available to prepare Aygo Fire and Aygo Ice inside and out for the scuffs and scrapes of everyday driving, with rear parking sensors, mud flaps, carpet mats, a rear bumper protection plate and side protection mouldings. For those wanting to add a few extra style flashes, Aygo Ice can be specified with a Style Pack offering rear chrome trim, aluminium scuff plates and a chrome exhaust pipe, or the Style Pack Plus with all of the aforementioned plus 14-inch alloy wheels.
Air conditioning can be specified as an option on Aygo+ and Aygo Fire, and metallic paint is available for all models apart from the entry level Aygo.
Prices for the new Aygo and Aygo+ models are up to £105 cheaper than their 2011 equivalent. Where Aygo Ice is concerned, there is a modest increase of no more than £40.
