The countdown to the Aygo X launch has begun. A new model inspired by modern urban living with a raised body, large alloy wheels and high driving position. The all-new Toyota Aygo X delivers driving confidence in a compact body. Enjoy the confidence that only a crossover can deliver in a compact body. With unique bi-tone colouring and a statement design, the Toyota Aygo X stands out from the crowd.
Whether in the city or on open roads, a truly great A-segment car must stand out by being compact and agile, inspiring driver confidence. It also needs to generate a sense of emotion, while integrating the best technological advances and being economical to run.
“The A-segment is very important to us. Not only has it brought many new customers to Toyota. It also fulfils our mission to provide everyone with the right mobility solution.” Andrea Carlucci, Vice President, Product and Marketing, Toyota Motor Europe
Details of the UK model range and specifications will be announced in due course.
“Everybody deserves a cool car. When I look at the Aygo X prologue, I’m really proud to say that ED² Team created exactly that. I’m excited to see it revolutionising the segment.” Ian Cartabiano, Design Director, Toyota European Design and Development
The new colour concept is inspired by different spices, producing a unique range of colours that capture the car’s flavours and personalities.
Cardamom, Chilli, Ginger & Juniper
It doesn't stop there, interior highlights match the exterior spice colours including the dashboard and centre consoles.
“The bi-tone of the Aygo X immediately grabs people’s attention. It’s clearly not just a detail. It’s an integral part of the design.” Anastasiia Stoliarova, Aygo X Product Planner, Toyota Motor Europe
At 3,700mm long, Aygo X is 235mm longer than its predecessor, although the wheelbase has been increased by just 90mm. The front overhang is 72mm shorter than the Yaris hatchback, while maximum wheel size is larger, at 18 inches. Designed for the narrowest city streets, Aygo X has an exceptionally small turning radius of just 4.7m, one of the tightest in the segment.
Total body width has increased by 125mm to 1,740mm. As a result, the front seats are set 20mm further apart, increasing shoulder space by 45mm. Luggage space is also segment-leading with 125mm more load space length and a smart space design behind the rear seats, increasing cargo capacity by more than 60 litres to 231 litres.
Furthermore, the pagoda roof design maintains compact overall dimensions, while providing a comfortable, spacious cabin. Vehicle height has been increased by 50mm to 1,525mm.
Toyota Smart Connect’s core features are a nine-inch high-definition touchscreen display, ambient lighting and wireless charging, offering a seamless user experience with the accompanying MyT smartphone app. With the MyT app, customers can keep track of various vehicle data and information.
In higher grade models, Toyota’s latest multimedia system offers cloud-based navigation to provide live route information via always-connected services. New software updates and connected services will subsequently be automatically added via over-the-air updates. Toyota Smart Connect also provides wired and wireless smartphone connectivity via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Toyota and JBL collaborated to deliver a premium audio system featuring a sound profile tailored to the car’s characteristics. The audio system consists of a four-speaker set-up coupled with a 300W amplifier and a large 200mm subwoofer located in the boot to deliver powerful bass, dynamic speaker response and clear and wide sound stage.
Aygo X takes a big step forward in terms of safety, introducing Toyota Safety Sense as standard.
The latest Toyota Safety Sense employs a combination of a monocular camera sensor and millimetre-wave radar. The Pre-Collision System (PCS) with vehicle detection now operates at higher speeds while the PCS’s day and night Pedestrian Detection, daytime Cyclist Detection, Collision Mitigation Support functions, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Trace Assist and Emergency Steering Assist all make their Aygo debut.
Aygo X has additional passive safety features, including structural reinforcements for impact absorption.
