And you can have them with an x-shift automatic transmission and an x-touch infotainment...
Toyota’s pint-sized Aygo is making the transition towards the 2017 model year with two new versions called “x-press” and “x-style.” A sister model of the Peugeot 108 and Citroën C1, the second-gen Aygo adopts an “X” motif not just in its name, but also for the front fascia where there’s a big “X” painted in black for the “x-press” and in grey for the “x-style.”
Go for the 2017 Aygo x-press and you can have it with contrasting red accents for the roof, side sills, front bumper, and at the back for the diffuser. The red look is combined with one of the four available body hues: White Flash, Electro Grey, Bold Black, and Silver Splash.
The Aygo x-press will come as standard with glossy black 15-inch wheels, automatic headlights, and rear privacy glass, while the side mirror caps and the door handles will be color-coordinated with the body.
There are also some tweaks inside the cabin where the look of the instrument panel matches the exterior finish and comes with black air vent surrounds. The center console and gear shift also adopt a black look and you get as standard the x-touch infotainment system and automatic air conditioning also bundled with the x-style version.
Speaking of which, the Aygo x-style replaces the red accents with grey ones, but you can have them in silver as well should you go for the Electro Grey body paint. Front fog lamps and a reversing camera come as standard kit, as do the heated mirrors with electric adjustment. You also get LED daytime running lights and electric front windows. Toyota will also throw in a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a height-adjustable driver’s seat to sweeten the deal.
Both versions can be optionally had with the Toyota Safety Sense package adding lane departure alert, automatic emergency braking, and a pre-collision system in exchange for £375.
Since we’re on the subject of pricing, both kick off at £11,935 for the five-speed manual versions and from £12,635 if you would rather have the x-shift automatic transmission. Regardless of gearbox choice, the five-door-only Aygo x-press and x-style are powered by a three-cylinder, 1.0-liter engine with 69 horsepower (51 kilowatts).
Toyota will have the Aygo duo on sale in U.K. from January 3rd, 2017.

Never a car to be found sporting last season’s look, the Toyota Aygo is undergoing another transformation for the New Year with two additions to its line-up. Demonstrating yet again the myriad possibilities offered by its wealth of customisable features. The new x-press and x-style hit the street with new combinations of colours and finishes, plus some top quality kit features.
Red is the stand-out shade for the new Aygo x-press, featured in eye-catching accents below the front bumper and rear diffuser, the side sills and a full roof decal. There are four body colours to choose from: Silver Splash, White Flash, Electro Grey and Bold Black, matched with a black front X (or silver with the black paint finish).
Rear privacy glass and multispoke, gloss black 15-inch alloys (machined face finish with Bold Black paint) ramp up the style factor. Doorhandles and door mirror casings are finished in the body colour.
In the cabin the instrument panel matches the body colour, with black surrounds for the air vents and gear shift and a black centre console. There is an automatic air conditioning system with a neat digital display and the three-spoke steering wheel is fitted with additional controls for the audio and mobile phone operation. Aygo’s x-touch multimedia system and dusk-sensing headlights are also part of the standard x-press package.
The new Aygo x-style takes a more sleek and sophisticated approach, adopting the features of the OUT-stand accessory pack – grey front X, front pillar extensions and rear diffuser. Pick Electro Grey for the body colour and the same custom elements are fitted, but in silver.
Like the x-press, the 15-inch alloys come in gloss black (with Red Pop, White Flash or Bold Black paintwork) or machined face finish (Electro Grey, Deep Blue Buzz and Silver Splash). Rear privacy glass, body colour doorhandles and door mirror casings are all included as well.
The x-style takes the same interior theme as x-press, with a matching body-colour instrument panel and black trim details. Automatic air-conditioning, x-touch and dusk-sensing headlights are also featured.
Other standard features shared by both models include a reversing camera, front fog lamps, Bluetooth, heated door mirrors with power adjustment, DAB tuner, leather steering wheel trim, electric front windows, Hill-start Assist Control, height-adjustable driver’s seat and LED daytime running lights.
The new models can also be specified with a Toyota Safety Sense package of active safety features, including a Pre-Collision System, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Alert. This extra protection adds an extra £375 to the on-the-road price tag.
Power and prices
Like all Aygo models, the newcomers are powered by Toyota’s 69bhp three-cylinder 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine, with a choice of five-speed manual or x-shift automatic transmission. All versions keep a firm lid on running costs with sub-100g/km CO2 emissions, official fuel economy from 68.9mpg and single-figure insurance group ratings.
The x-press and x-style are exclusively five-door models, priced alike at £11,935 with manual transmission and £12,635 with x-shift. Like all new Toyotas, they come with a five-year/100,000-mile new vehicle warranty.
