Tweaks for the Aygo, Yaris and Etios models…
Colourful Additions to Aygo
The compact city car now offers two new models each with bespoke colour combinations and exterior treatments. The previously offered ‘X-Play Silver’ is replaced by the new ‘X-Clusiv’ model. The X-Clusiv features a silver A-pillar, and a combination of Quartz Grey and Piano Black interior trim, whilst the interior door handles now feature chrome plating.
Fog lamps have also been added to the standard specification level on the X-Clusiv. As before the model is ‘exclusively’ available in black body colour.
The flagship Aygo variant, the X-Cite, complete with folding canvas roof, now offers buyers the option of a vibrant orange-hued canvas top. The orange roof can be paired with any of the six exterior colours (White, Silver, Ash Grey, Cherry Red, Caribbean Blue or Black). Customers can also opt for the X-Cite black which features a more traditional black folding roof.
Mechanicals and other specification items remain unchanged. The Aygo range is powered by an ultra-efficient 1.0-litre engine delivering 53kW and 93Nm. Fuel economy is this engine’s strong suit, with a frugal 4.3 litre per 100 kilometres fuel index figure.

Aygo X-Clusiv – R 174 800

Sensible Upgrades to Yaris
The Yaris range inherits an upgraded Anti-theft system, whilst the Xs, Sport and Cross variants receive rear Park Distance Control (PDC). The comprehensive standard feature list is left unaltered (bar the PDC addition) and the range continues to be powered by the rev-happy 79kW 1.5-litre VVT-i engine. Buyers can opt for either a 5-speed manual or CVT transmission option (model dependent).
All Yaris models feature Keyless entry, driver and passenger airbags, ISOFIX provision, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Hill Assist Control (HAC). The intuitive touchscreen audio system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto+ and Bluetooth integration continues as before.
The range continues unaltered with four (Xi, Xs, Cross and Sport) grades across five models.
