Toyota Aygo gains JBL Edition amid 2020 updates
Aygo JBL Edition has a premium sound system and costs £14,150
- JBL model has upgraded stereo and exclusive colour scheme
- All Aygos now feature Toyota Safety Sense pack
- Trim levels reduced
The Toyota Aygo JBL Edition has been launched as part of updates to the Aygo range for 2020. Other trim levels have been altered or discontinued, while the Aygo is now exclusively available with five doors. The tweaked range is available to buy now, with prices starting from £12,440.
The JBL Edition becomes one of four available trim levels and gets its name from its five-speaker JBL audio system. The setup includes a subwoofer housed in the spare wheel well (a tyre repair kit is provided so you won’t be completely stranded by a puncture). The Aygo is well-connected for music playback, as you can connect your phone via Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth or USB.
Buyers get a trim-specific colour scheme, with ‘Electro Grey’ bodywork contrasted by the ‘Mandarin Pop’ colour on the roof, mirrors, side skirts and bumper inserts. It’s matched inside with orange inserts on the air vent surrounds, seat piping and the gear lever. JBL Edition cars cost £14,150 with a manual gearbox or £14,850 if you spec the automatic.
Toyota has trimmed the Aygo range, with just x-play, x-trend and x-clusiv now available besides the JBL model. It means all cars now get a touchscreen with DAB radio, smartphone mirroring and a reversing camera, while the company’s Safety Sense pack is now standard across the range. This includes auto emergency braking and lane-departure warning.
Moving up to x-trend adds alloy wheels, auto headlights, front fog lights and privacy glass, while top-spec x-clusiv gets a different wheel design, part-leather upholstery and keyless entry/start. The ‘Funroof’ fabric roof is an option on the latter two specs.
