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.

Brussels, Belgium -  Since its launch, AYGO has made its mark on the A-segment with its striking appearance and clever customisation options, which allow customers to tailor their cars to their personal taste.
More than 10 parts around the vehicle can be easily replaced by alternative colours and executions, within a limited amount of time, and even after several years of ownership.
From its iconic frontal ‘X’ design to its extensive range of customisation options, all styling and engineering decisions for new AYGO have been specifically made with fun in mind. The line-up consists of 3 grades and 3 special editions, which are being updated on an annual basis.
Now Toyota is introducing a new AYGO x-cite, the most extrovert variant of the range adding even more flair to the model line-up.
The new x-cite edition features a new Yellow Fizz exterior combined with piano black inserts for the frontal “X” graphic and rear bumper insert, while the front fender garnish and side mirrors are finished in Bold Black. The 15” double-spoke alloys are finished in Glossy Black and come with Bold Black coloured centre caps.
The new x-cite is only available as a bi-tone variant featuring a blacked out roof for an even more distinctive and dynamic appearance.
Inside, the design theme is continued with a Yellow Fizz finish for the seat side bolsters, air vent inserts, gearshift knob and carpets. The instrument panel, centre console and gear lever surround feature Bold Black inserts, while the inside door handles are finished in chrome.
The x-cite edition comes equipped with the 7” full colour x-touch multimedia system as standard, offering a user-friendly combination of the latest on-board multimedia technology.
The integrated Rear View Monitoring System can assist the driver when parking or manoeuvring in tight spaces. It activates whenever reverse gear is selected, using a back camera to display an image of the area behind the car and guiding lines on the x-touch 7” screen.
AYGO is equipped with a Euro 6 compliant 3-cylinder, 1.0 litre VVT-i petrol engine. The power unit delivers class-leading fuel economy of just 3.8 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of only 88 g/km, and can be combined with a manual transmission or ‘x-shift’ automated manual transmission.
New AYGO x-cite will be available across Europe from June 2016.
