Toyota Will Continue the Aygo for Europe, Possibly under Another Name

Toyota Will Continue the Aygo for Europe, Possibly under Another Name

Unlike the Citroën C1 and Peugeot 108 siblings, whose current lifecycles are the last, the Toyota Aygo supermini in its evolution form will be continued in Europe.

Toyota is going to refresh its affordable offering for the European market, but not the fact the Aygo name remains.

The new model will sit on a version of the Toyota Yaris’s GA-B platform. To stay in a low-cost segment, the Aygo successor will use only internal combustion engines, without any electrification. Interior space and utility will be the priorities.

As for the design, expect it’ll get close to that of the Yaris, with some Aygo’s cues to retain, such as specific wheels, upright brake light clusters or a fabric retractable roof.

Judging by spy shots, the new car will likely have a higher ground clearance and a protective body kit.

As for the engines, they may be borrowed from the Yaris, namely a base 1.0-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine. Probably, a 5-speed stick shift and a continuously variable transmission will be on choice.
