Toyota Aygo X: City car gets crossover treatment
Toyota has revealed the first details of its upcoming Aygo X – a compact crossover that’s set to be revealed in November.
Here’s what we know so far.
Set to be based on Toyota’s GA-B platform (the same as the new Yaris), the Aygo X is set to take on the design cues of the Aygo city car.
It’s essentially intended as its replacement, so although there may be some similarities by design, expect the Aygo X to be larger and be more akin to a crossover.
In fact the ‘X’ is intended to be pronounced ‘Cross’ – another suggestion that this car is taking aim at larger compact crossovers like the Renault Captur and Nissan Juke.
Set to be produced in Toyota’s Czech Republic Kolin plant, we can get an idea of what it will look like by examining the Aygo X Prologue concept.
The concept car developed on the existing Aygo, but gives it a much more rugged look.
No tech specs have been revealed yet, but we know that it won’t feature an electrified drivetrain – at least from launch. Instead it’ll use tried and trusted petrol engines without hybrid technology to keep prices as low as possible.
That’s likely to change a year or two down the line though. We’ll bring you more details on the all-new Aygo X as soon as it’s revealed.
