The Toyota Aygo X has finally been officially revealed as the Japanese manufacturer’s smallest crossover. The new subcompact model makes use of the firm’s TNGA-B platform and will cater to urban and suburban consumers.
The Toyota Agya X measures 3 700 mm long which makes it 235 mm longer than they model it replaces. With this increase in size, the new model boasts an increased wheelbase by 90 mm while the front overhang has been decreased by 72 mm.
Overall width has increased by 125 mm to 1 740 mm but the subcompact crossover boasts a tight turning circle of 4,7 metres. Thanks to the wider body, the front seats have moved 20 mm further apart which increases shoulder space by 45 mm. The luggage space boasts a claimed capacity of 60 litres while the utility can host 231 litres when the rear seats are forded down.
Powering the Toyota Aygo X is the brand’s 1KR-FE 1,0-litre three-cylinder engine which boasts a fuel consumption figure of 4,7 L/100 km. This is driven to the front wheels via a new S-CVT.
To enhance the cabin experience, the Toyota Aygo X interior noise levels have been reduced through use and optimisation of sound insulating materials. With this, the Japanese brand claims that the Articulation Index has improved by six per cent.
The Toyota Aygo X features a unique JBL premium audio system featuring a sound profile that the manufacturer says is tailored to the characteristics of the car. The audio system consists of a four-speaker set up coupled with a 300W amplifier and a 200 mm subwoofer located in the boot.
Available as an optional extra for the Toyota Aygo X is a retractable canvas top which the brand says is a first for a modern A-segment car. Using high-quality materials normally found on premium models, the canvas top offers improved water and dust protection. The new wind deflector structure also improves durability and robustness for additional peace of mind.
