May 2008

All blue Aygo Blue launched

Colour co-ordination includes door mirrors and bumper inserts on the out side and continues inside the cabin with new carpet mats with matching blue stitching and slate blue bezels for the air vents and instrument display.

The Aygo Blue sits alongside Aygo Platinum at the top of the model range, offering an attractive array of premium equipment features. Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning and, on manual models, leather gear knob trim are all part of the standard specification. And for those owners looking to make their Aygo Blue even more special, two accessory packs are available.

Aygo Xtra Protected equips the car for life in the urban jungle with rear parking sensors, mud flaps and unpainted rear and side protection strips, while Aygo Style adds élan with alloy wheels, front fog lamps and front scuff plates. The packs are priced £335 and £595 respectively (including VAT). Same official 61.4mpg in combined cycle driving. With carbon dioxide emissions of just 108g/km. Aygo Blue is powered by a 67bhp 1.0-litre engine with five-speed manual or Multi-mode transmission. Priced from £7,995 on the road.

February 2009

Updated Aygo launched

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.

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.

January 2011

High Spec Aygo Go launched

Comes as standard with a removable TomTom satellite navigation unit that has touch screen controls and a voice recognition function. Also Bluetooth and a USB port for connecting iPods and other digital music players to the audio system, which itself provides a CD player that can play MP3 files from disc.

The 4.3-inch navigation screen offers a bird's eye route view and can also display playlist and album details and SMS messages, with a handy speech-to-text facility if required.

Aygo Go includes new-design alloy wheels, dark-tinted rear privacy glass and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. New exterior colours are Chilli Red and Cirrus White, with metallic Carbon Quartz available as an option. Air conditioning can also be specified, together with the dedicated AYGO Style and Protection option packs.

January 2012

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.

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.

Aygo’s Toyota-designed and manufactured all-aluminium three-cylinder 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine weighs just 67kg. 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*

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.

February 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.

August 2013

Revised Aygo range announced with prices from £8,595. The new grade line-up runs from Active and Activeplus through to Mode and Move. The principle change has been to equip all versions with the same complement of safety features.

That means even the entry level Active now comes as standard with VSC stability control, curtain airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts and seatbelt buckle-up reminders for driver and front passenger, in addition to the ABS, EBD and driver and passenger front and side airbags that are established features. A 50:50 split-folding rear seatback with detachable headrests has also been added to the Active specification.

The new Mode model gets 14-inch eight-spoke Ragno alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear privacy glass, LED daytime running lights, tachometer, electric front windows, remote central locking and body colour-matched door handles and mirrors.

Central to the new Aygo Move is a neat portable TomTom navigation system that slots easily into place on a folding dock on top of the dashboard. Loaded with the latest map data, it brings with it Bluetooth, a USB port and iPod connection that allows the player to be controlled using the satnav’s touchscreen. Air conditioning, a tachometer and leather steering wheel and gear knob trim are also part of the Move package.

To increase the spec buyers can opt for the new 'Aygo Move with Style', gaining in six-spoke alloys, privacy glass and LED daytime running lights. Air conditioning is an option on ActivePlus and Mode versions.

A Protection Pack is available for the five-door Aygo Mode and Move, providing rear parking sensors, front and rear mud flaps, carpet mats and side protection mouldings. All versions of Mode and Move can also be treated to a Design Pack, adding front scuff plates, chrome trim at the rear and a chrome finisher on the tailpipe.

The range of seven colours for Aygo includes two new shades. Nero Rosso (available for Mode and Move grades) combines deep red bodywork with a contrasting black roof, and adds gloss black trim details around the cabin. Napoli Blue metallic is exclusive to Move grade, with matching trim on the door panels, air vent and tachometer surrounds.

There is a new range of roof decals: customers can choose from Union Jack designs in classic red-white-and-blue or monochrome; a racing chequer design; white gloss; and gloss or matt black.
