Toyota’s new Aygo makes its big reveal in Geneva. The Japanese manufacturer’s idea differs from that of its French partners, with some styling packing a lot of aggression.
Its overall length is increased by 25 mm, and “although front headroom has been increased by 7mm, vehicle height has actually been reduced by 5mm.”
On the inside, its dash design gets a far more upscale look than its predecessor, and the A-pillars are particularly thin on this car. The most prominent feature is the redesigned of the center stack with the x-touch infotainment system that runs on a seven-inch touchscreen.
The engine on offer is the exact same 68hp 1.0 liter unit. It sprints from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 14.2 seconds and has a top speed of almost 160 km/h (100 mph). Efficiency is rated at 4.2 l/100km or 56 mpg US / 67.3 mpg UK, the exact same figure as Audi’s new TT TDI.

The majority of incidents on the road could have been prevented by one or more drivers. Just look at the case of the self driving car crash. An investigation found that the driver had seven seconds to intervene before the car collided with a wall. He just wasn’t paying attention and that’s only one of the most common errors that occurs on the road. Read more
