Toyota is trying to make the Aygo look cooler for the younger crowd by introducing a new paint scheme which has a rather funny name, “Yellow Fizz.”
A sister car to the Peugeot 108 and Citroën C1, Toyota’s funky Aygo can be customized in numerous ways and now there’s a new “x-cite” special edition which brings a special look. It’s described as being “the most extrovert variant of the range” and wears a new shade called “Yellow Fizz.” The splashy color has been combined with piano black accents for the front fascia’s “X” motif as well as for the rear bumper insert.
To further set it apart from the more mundane Aygos, Toyota has given the new x-cite a “Bold Black” finish for the side mirror caps and front fender garnish. It rides on glossy black 15-inch alloys featuring bold black center caps and is offered exclusively with a black roof to contrast the otherwise yellow body.
As far as the interior is concerned, the Yellow Fizz theme continues on the seat side bolsters, carpets, gearshift knob, and also on the air vent inserts. Those Bold Black accents on the outside have a correspondent in the cabin where the center console, instrument panel, and gear lever surround adopt a similar appearance.
The interior door handles come with a shiny chrome finish as standard, along with the seven-inch color display for the infotainment system which integrates a rearview camera. That being said, it shouldn’t be that hard to park the city car taking into account the second-gen Aygo is only 136 inches (3455 mm) long.
On sale in Europe starting June, this second version of the “x-cite” (the first one was blue) has the same puny three-cylinder, 1.0-liter gasoline engine delivering 69 horsepower (51 kilowatts) and 70 pound-feet (95 newton meters) of torque. You can have it with either a standard manual gearbox or an optional automated manual transmission.
