Toyota Aygo X: casting error
More and more manufacturers are abandoning the small city car segment. Not very profitable, they also have the fault of being content with small engines with often basic technology. Although low in absolute terms, their CO emissions2 are therefore slightly above the critical threshold of 95 g/km imposed by the European Union on manufacturers. In addition to making almost no profit, they are more likely to penalize the brands on this point, with the key risk of a fine in the event of overrun! Only very advanced manufacturers of electrified models (hybrid or 100% electric) can therefore afford to continue in this direction. This is the case with Toyota.
For the smallest of its city cars, the Aygo, Toyota had so far established a partnership with PSA. The Japanese girl was the cousin of the Citroën C1 and Peugeot 108, models that the French manufacturer has decided not to renew. Now, therefore, the Japanese manufacturer finds itself alone: it has taken over the Czech factory in Kolin, which produced the three chips. Then he started from scratch to develop a completely new generation. The transition from the Aygo to the Aygo X does not result in the simple addition of a letter to the name of this city car. Now it shares its TNGA-B platform with its big sister, the Yaris.
The Toyota Aygo X wants to be as big as beef
This is felt on the dimensions, increasing sharply : 3.70 m long, the Aygo X measures up to its 23 cm predecessor. In width, it is 12 cm that the dimension increases, to reach 1.74 m. Finally, the height climbs to 1.52 m (6 cm more than before), ideal for giving this city car the air of an SUV. High-legged silhouette, rocker panels and wheel arches in raw plastic and large wheels (up to 18 inches) are on the program. With its bulldog’s scowling nose, its original two-tone exterior (on the Design and Collection finishes) and its sculpted curved sides, the Toyota Aygo X does not lack allure… It is difficult to find a smaller car on the market today. seductive. This is a successful first bet!
