The all-new Toyota Aygo X is a unique A-segment crossover, designed and manufactured in Europe to meet the needs of urban and suburban life in Europe
To make the all-new Aygo X the best choice in the segment, Toyota has conducted in-depth research across the continent on city driving needs, listening to customers ’wishes for a sleek, compact and confident car.
The result is the latest compact car in the Toyota range, built on the highly successful GA-B platform Toyota Global New Architecture (TNGA), first introduced with the new Yaris – the current car of 2021 in Europe – and then recently with the Yaris Cross.
Whether you are in the city or on the open road, a truly great A-segment car must stand out with its harmony and agility, in order to instill confidence in the driver. Also, it should create and convey emotions, and at the same time combine the best technological achievements into a compact package that is economical to drive.
Starting from concept car Aygo X Prologue, developed at the Toyota European Design and Development Center (ED²) in Nice, France, Toyota ‘s designers wanted to give compact car buyers in Europe a sense of boldness and spice.
Kardamon (Cardamom) brings an impression of style and elegance, providing a refined and neglected aesthetic, with a noticeable touch of green.
Chilli is a fiery and superior color that attracts the eyes of passers-by with a warm and deep reflection of shades thanks to the fine shimmer of blue metallic beads in red.
Ginger is a refined and permanent beige color which with its warm shade hints at the spirit of adventure.
Juniper gives a youthful tone with a hint of masculinity, it is blue and created especially for this model, giving it an icy coolness enriched with subtle reddish shades.
Each of these powerful spice colors contrasts sharply with the black roof as well as the rear end, making the Aygo X unmistakably stand out and recognizable.
A spice-inspired theme doesn’t end on the surface. Prominent details in the interior are also in line with the colors of the exterior, and give the cabin a distinctive design, including a control panel and central elements. A closer look at the seats reveals the “X” symbol, discreetly sewn on the fabric. The Aygo X model name is elegantly applied to the serious-looking headlights to emphasize a strong and unique identity.
Harmonious and agile
With a customized, proven and successful GA-B platform for the Aygo X, the new and unique player in the A-segment competition is the original crossover product, featuring a modified and reduced body rear, with shorter front and rear overhangs.
At 3,700mm in length, the new Aygo X is 235mm longer than its predecessor, although the wheelbase has been increased by just 90mm. The front overhang is 72mm shorter than the Yaris, while the maximum wheel size has been increased to 18 inches.
Designed for the city’s narrowest streets, the Aygo X also has an extremely small turning circle of just 4.7 m, one of the smallest in its class.
Compared to the Aygo, the overall body width has been increased by 125 mm, to 1,740 mm. As a result, the front seats have been moved forward by 20 mm, increasing the space around the shoulders by 45 mm. The luggage compartment is also a leader in the segment, now with a 125 mm longer boot length, and a clever design of the space behind the rear seats, increasing the boot capacity by more than 60 liters – to 231 liters compared to the previous generation.
At the same time, the roof solution called Pagoda maintains harmonious overall dimensions, providing a comfortable and spacious cabin for the driver and passengers. The height of the vehicle has been increased by 50 mm, or 1,510 mm.
In terms of handling, the system is adapted for urban and suburban driving in Europe, with a new S-CVT transmission that provides best-in-class response, with intuitive gear changes and acceleration linearity, while maintaining excellent results in terms of engine power and fuel consumption .
The level of internal noise has been reduced by greater application and improvement of sound insulation materials. Thus, a quieter cabin was obtained in which the articulation index was improved by 6%, which is a result that is among the best in the segment.
Toyota and JBL worked together to deliver a premium audio system with a sound profile tailored to the characteristics of the Aygo X. The audio system consists of four speakers, combined with a 300 W amplifier, and a large 200 mm diameter subwoofer, located in the trunk from where it delivers sound with powerful bass, full dynamic speaker response, creating a clear and wide sound image.
The sky alone is the limit when it comes to the Aygo X with an optional retractable soft top roof, which is the first solution of its kind for the A-segment crossover. The new canvas roof is designed to enhance the driver’s driving experience with the sunroof increased by 40 mm, and with a viewing angle increased by 20%.
By using high-quality materials that are usually only found in premium models, the canvas roof offers improved protection against water and dust. The new construction of the wind deflector also improves durability and gives strength for additional peace of mind.
Toyota Smart Connect primarily includes a large, high-resolution, 9-inch touchscreen, ambient lighting and wireless charging, offering users a seamless experience with the accompanying MyT smartphone app. With the MyT app, customers can track a variety of vehicle information, such as driving analytics, fuel level, warnings and vehicle tracking.

Toyota’s latest A-segment model features advanced full LED lighting technology, making this technology available to more customers. The daytime running lights and turn signals consist of two light tubes surrounded by a beautiful, bright incandescent light to accentuate the cult Aygo profile in all lighting conditions.
The Aygo X has the least weight of the assembled body itself before painting and assembly, it is lighter than any A or B segment car, which provides the opportunity to achieve excellent fuel economy.
The front bumper and special arches around the wheels also enable greater fuel savings by precisely directing the airflow around the wheels, thus reducing the vortex of the air around the front and side parts of the car. The arc strips around the rear wheels also direct the flow of air that thus passes away from the tires and directs it to the point of convergence at the rear of the car.
The Toyota Aygo X is powered by an award-winning 1KR-FE multi-award-winning single-liter, three-cylinder engine that has been upgraded to meet European environmental standards while providing a high level of reliability and performance, with a target fuel consumption of just 4.7 l / 100 km, and CO emissions2 from 107 g / km.
