Set to debut at the forthcoming 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March, rumours are circulating amongst industry professionals about what we can expect from the revamped Toyota Aygo. The car has been co-developed alongside the next Citroën C1 and the Peugeot 108 and a recently revealed ‘teaser picture’ gives a tantalising preview of what is to come.
The image, without revealing too much, gives a glimpse of a bold and dominant fascia in tune with Toyota’s ‘Keen Look’ design language. The Aygo boasts a fearless front end with distinctive style. The eye is immediately drawn to the prominent, centrally-placed Toyota badge sitting atop the razor-sharp front grille, which extends out to include the keen-edged LED headlamps.
At the rear of the vehicle it is expected that the Aygo will have a new raised brake-light design, in order to provide heightened visibility and presence on the city streets. This refreshed rear styling opens up the opportunity for a larger, more easily accessible boot space.
The new range is likely to offer a range of customisation options with stylish new colours and trims. Within the cabin, we can look forward to premium interior quality with improved equipment levels and a more spacious environment.
Further speculations suggest that the new Aygo is likely to be longer and wider than the current model, with a dropped stance. This increase in size and lower positioning, as well as a probable overall weight reduction, will offer enhancements in handling through improved traction and control. Toyota is likely to offer an evolved version of the existing three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine, which will bring further improvements in fuel economy and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
The brand-new Toyota Aygo is likely to go on sale in 2014. Keep up-to-date with the latest Aygo news online.
