The Toyota Aygo and Avensis ranges have been updated with new specifications

Toyota aygo city car 2013 new specs

The Toyota Aygo range has been updated, introducing four new specifications that replace the old models and a range of new safety technology as standard.

The new Aygo line-up starts at the entry-level Active model, with Active plus, Mode and the top-spec Move versions further up. All models now come with a host of safety features as standard, including stability control, curtain airbags, ISOFIX child seat fixings and seatbelt reminders for the front seats.

The base model Active is fairly sparsely equipped, with 50:50 folding rear seats and a CD player the only notable standard equipment. The new Active plus model gets electric front windows, higher-quality fabric for the seats, four-speaker audio and a remote keyfob. Air-conditioning is optional on the Active plus model.

Go up the Toyota Aygo range and there is more equipment included as standard, with the new Mode spec getting 14-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, tinted windows, LED daytime running lights and body-coloured door mirrors and handles. The top-spec Move model includes a portable TomTom sat-nav, air-conditioning, Bluetooth, USB and a leather steering wheel as standard.

Rear parking sensors, mud flaps, carpet mats and extra scratch protection for the sides of the car can be bought for the Aygo Mode and Move as part of the Protection Pack, while the Design Pack adds extra chrome trim to the exterior and exhaust pipe. Buyers can also get the Move with Style spec, which adds tinted windows, alloy wheels and daytime running lights to the Move version.

The Toyota Aygo range is available in seven colours, including a new metallic blue and a deep red that comes with a black roof and interior details. Aygo buyers can also get a range of new decals for the roof of their car, including a Union Jack and a chequered flag design.

The new Toyota Aygo range, which uses a 1.0-litre petrol engine that gets 65mpg, is available now, costing from £8,595. For more information on the car, read the CarBuyer Toyota Aygo review.

New Toyota Avensis specs

The Toyota Avensis has also been updated, with two new models available in the range.

The new Select model gets daytime running lights, new wheel designs, a leather steering wheel and Bluetooth connectivity as standard. It’s available for the 1.8-litre petrol saloon model and the 2.0-litre diesel saloon and estate models.

The second new specification, called Edition, features automatic windscreen wipers and headlights, automatic air-conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, a touchscreen display, sat-nav, Internet connectivity, a rear-view camera and Bluetooth all as standard. It’s available for the saloon and estate with either the 1.8-litre petrol or 2.0-litre diesel engines.

The Toyota Avensis Select costs from £16,495, and the Edition costs from £18,495. For more on the car, read the CarBuyer Toyota Avensis review.
