New Toyota Aygo 2014: all you need to know
Latest information on the Toyota Aygo 2014, including price and release date details
The new Toyota Aygo is in development now and is expected to go on sale in 2014. The compact city car will offer improved grip and handling over the current model. The new Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108 models are likely to come out at about the same time, too, as all three cars are based on the same set of mechanical parts.
Although we don’t know much about the new Toyota Aygo 2014 yet, we have gathered up everything we already know in one place – read on for all you need to know about the upcoming new Aygo.
New Toyota Aygo 2014 price & release date
The new Toyota Aygo is likely to go on sale in the UK towards the end of 2014, following a reveal next year. We expect the Citroen C1 and new Peugeot 108 to be launched around the same time, as all three cars will be developed together.
Currently the Aygo costs about £500 more than its sister cars, the C1 and 107, and it’s likely that this will remain true, with the new Aygo costing slightly more than its Peugeot and Citroen counterparts. However, with competition from cars like the great-value Skoda Citigo, the starting price for the new Aygo should be about £8,500.
New Toyota Aygo specs
Like the Skoda Citigo, Volkswagen up! and SEAT Mii, the Aygo, C1 and 108 will offer varying levels of interior quality despite an identical set of mechanical parts. The new Toyota Aygo will be the equivalent to the VW up! in the range, offering the most up-market interior.
The new Toyota Aygo 2014 will most likely be longer and wider than the current model, which will improve handling as well as grip in corners. There will be a new, higher rear brake light for safer city driving and a larger boot opening. The car will probably echo the design of the new Toyoya Auris, with a prominent Toyota badge on the front.
It’s likely that a 1.0-litre petrol with improved economy and emissions over the current model will be available in the new Aygo. Thanks to a weight reduction the car should be better on fuel than ever, and be more fun to drive as well.
There could also be a hybrid version of the car, based on Toyota’s existing technology in other cars, which could push CO2 emissions as low as 50g/km.
With the car being a bit longer and wider, it should get a bigger boot than before, as well as more interior space. We expect a totally new design for the inside of the car, with better quality materials and a range of customisation options.
