Updated AYGO range
A new x-clusiv special edition
From its iconic frontal ‘X’ design to its extensive range of customisation options, all styling and engineering decisions for the latest AYGO have been specifically made with fun in mind. The line-up consists of three grades: -x, x-play and x-wave- and three special editions -x-cite, x-clusiv and x-pure, which we update every year.
While the special editions have been created to showcase three widely differing personalities of AYGO, customers interested in personalisation can easily create their own AYGO with a choice of two exterior and two interior packs.
Now the AYGO range is being updated with a new x-clusiv special edition, which brings an additional level of sophistication to the model line-up.
Equipped with a black canvas top, the x-clusiv features a new Electro Grey body colour with Silver Sparkle inserts for the frontal “X” graphic, front fender garnish and rear bumper insert.
The 15” five-spoke alloys come with a machine-faced finish, a Silver Sparkle centre cap and a Piano Black centre cap ring. To further highlight the side profile of the car, a chrome belt line and privacy glass are available.
Inside, the design theme is continued with Electro Grey inserts for the air vent surrounds, centre cluster and gear lever surround. Silver Sparkle is used for the instrument panel insert and accents on the floor mats, while the inside door handles are finished in chrome.
AYGO can also be equipped with ‘Toyota Safety Sense’, a newly developed set of active safety technologies designed to help prevent or mitigate collisions across a wide range of traffic situations.
Between speeds of approximately 10 to 80 km/h, a Pre-Collision System (PCS) detects other vehicles in front and reduces the risk of hitting them from behind by reducing speed by approximately 30 km/h or even bringing the car to a complete stop.
The Lane Departure Alert (LDA) system monitors lane markings and helps prevent accidents and head-on collisions caused by leaving lanes.
AYGO is equipped with a Euro 6 compliant 3-cylinder, 1.0 litre VVT-i petrol engine. The unit delivers class-leading fuel economy of just 3.8 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of only 88 g/km, and can be combined with a manual transmission or ‘x-shift’ automated manual transmission.
The New AYGO x-clusiv will be available across Europe from February 2016.
AYGO x-play Concept
Since its launch, AYGO has made its mark with its striking appearance and clever customisation options, which allow you to tailor their cars to their personal taste. More than 10 parts around the vehicle can be easily replaced by alternative colours and executions, within a limited amount of time, and even after several years of ownership.
The AYGO x-play Concept demonstrates how the combination of a contrasting body colour and inserts can create a striking looking car with a unique personality.
The new Cyan Splash exterior is combined with a White Flash finish for the frontal “X” graphic, rear bumper insert, front fender garnish, side mirrors, A-pillars and the roof to create a bi-tone execution. The 15” 10-spoke alloys are finished in White with Cyan Splash centre caps.
The interior follows the same design theme with White Flash coloured inserts for the centre console, gear lever surround and air vent. The instrument panel is executed in Cyan Splash and the door handles are highlighted in chrome.

Along with the various world and European product premieres we’re bringing along to Geneva next week, we’re also really excited to reveal our brand new Toyota motor show stand design: “The Wave”. You may have seen a concept sketch earlier this month. The stand design is the result of an internal design competition between design agencies in Japan, North America and Europe. We’re really proud to say that the future of Toyota’s motor show identity is a European design. Behind the scenes look and exclusive pictures after the break. (more…)
