Toyo­ta Ay­go in­tro­du­ced to the wor­ld at Ge­ne­va Mo­tor S­how

George Herald - Auto Dealer - - News -

The new Toyo­ta Ay­go has ma­de its wor­ld de­but at the Ge­ne­va Mo­tor S­how t­his week. C­han­ges to the success­ful ci­ty car streng­then its stand-out cha­rac­ter in a highly com­pe­ti­ti­ve mar­ket seg­ment, both in terms of a yout­hful and dis­tincti­ve de­sign and im­pro­ved per­for­man­ce and hand­ling for a fun-to-dri­ve ex­pe­rien­ce.

The fron­tal “X” on the new Ay­go has been trans­for­med from a two-di­men­si­o­nal graphic in­to a mo­re po­wer­ful, three-di­men­si­o­nal ar­chi­tec­tu­ral e­le­ment.

The dis­tincti­ve new look in­clu­des re­de­sig­ned he­ad­lig­ht u­nits with in­te­gral day­ti­me run­ning lig­hts, gi­ving the car an e­ven mo­re stri­king ap­pea­ran­ce.

The lo­wer secti­on of the X fra­mes the front gril­le, com­mu­ni­ca­ting a sta­ble stan­ce and a­gi­le per­for­man­ce. Black, gloss black or sil­ver or­na­men­ta­ti­on be­ne­ath the lig­hts accen­tu­a­tes the car’s width. W­hen vie­wed in pro­fi­le, t­he­re is a strong vi­su­al con­necti­on be­t­ween the front and re­ar of the car, thanks to the mo­re pro­noun­ced fron­tal form and the in­tro­ducti­on of new ou­ter len­ses for the tail lamp clus­ters, ge­ne­ra­ting a sen­se of for­ward mo­vement.

New LED lig­ht gui­des at the re­ar gi­ve the new Ay­go a so­phi­sti­ca­ted look and help ma­ke the car in­stant­ly re­cog­ni­sa­ble. The lig­hting sig­na­tu­re cre­a­tes the per­cep­ti­on of a com­pact ca­bin a­bo­ve a wi­der, lo­wer bum­per a­rea, emp­ha­si­sing vehi­cle width and sta­bi­li­ty.

Per­for­man­ce and d­ri­ving dy­n­a­mi­cs ha­ve been im­pro­ved for mo­re a­gi­le per­for­man­ce a­round town, whi­le main­tai­ning Ay­go’s class-le­a­ding fu­el e­co­nomy.

Me­a­su­res ha­ve al­so been ta­ken to a­chie­ve a mar­ked re­ducti­on in noi­se and vi­bra­ti­on le­vels ex­pe­rien­ced in the ca­bin.

Toyo­ta’s a­ward-win­ning 998cc three-cy­lin­der, 12-val­ve DOHC en­gi­ne now meets Eu­ro 6,2 e­mis­si­ons stan­dards. Re­vi­si­ons ha­ve a­chie­ved a ba­lan­ce of po­wer and ef­fi­cien­cy, with bet­ter tor­que de­li­very at lo­wer en­gi­ne speeds.
