Order books have opened for Aygo Black, a new version of Toyota’s friendly and frugal city car.

Aygo Black comes with a choice array of sports styling features, building on the specification of the Aygo+ model with additional Alcantara and leather upholstery, a leather-trimmed sports steering wheel, leather gear shift knob (manual models), 14-inch alloy wheels and Tempest Black metallic exterior paint finish.

Powered by the ultra-economical Toyota Optimal Drive 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine – winner of the sub-one-litre class of the International Engine of the Year awards for the past three years – and fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox, Aygo Black has official combined cycle fuel consumption figures of 62.8mpg and CO2 emissions of just 106g/km.

Both three and five-door models are available and air conditioning is available as an option. Toyota’s Multimode transmission is also available on the five-door Aygo Black, where air conditioning has been specified.

One year’s free insurance
Customers who move quickly to snap up an Aygo Black can also take advantage of Toyota’s generous offer of one year’s free cover from Toyota Motor Insurance. Owners must be aged 21-plus.
