New Toyota Aygo JBL Edition launched

Toyota has kitted out it’s dinky city car with an enormous stereo system, which features a subwoofer in place of the standard model’s spare wheel

Toyota has launched a special edition of  the Aygo city car, called the JBL Edition. It features an improved stereo system as well as a range of cosmetic tweaks and is on sale now priced from £14,150.

Revisions over the standard Toyota Aygo include 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, rear privacy glass and a new grey-and-orange paint scheme, which matches the brand colours of JBL – the company which supplied the car’s stereo system.

Inside, buyers get the same colour scheme as the bodywork, with grey upholstery that’s offset by a range of contrasting orange trim-pieces. There’s also a four-speaker JBL stereo system and a 160mm subwoofer, which occupies the same normally reserved for the car’s spare wheel. Buyers get a puncture repair kit to compensate for the loss of the space saver.

It’s powered by a 71bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, which sends drive to the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox as standard – although an automatic transmission is available for an extra £700. The manual-equipped engine delivers claimed WLTP fuel economy figures of between 53.3 and 56.6mpg.

Toyota Aygo: 2020 model year updates

Toyota has also restructured the Aygo range for 2020, dropping the three-door model from the car’s line-up, as well as revising its trim-levels and safety equipment.

Buyers now have their choice of three specifications – x-play, x-trend and x-clusiv. The base model comes as standard with air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver seat, a reversing camera and a seven-inch infotainment system with DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity. All variants also now feature a pre-collision system with automatic emergency braking.

The mid-range Aygo x-trend adds 15-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, front fog lamps, automatic air conditioning, privacy glass and some decals for the car’s side skirts, door mirror caps and bumpers. Toyota’s “Funroof” is also available as an optional extra, which swaps the Aygo’s hardtop for an electrically operated canvas roof.

Toyota’s range-topping x-clusiv model features a unique set of twin-spoke alloy wheels, part-leather seat upholstery, as well as keyless entry and go. Buyers also get a two-tone paint finish with body-coloured interior trim pieces as standard.
