The Aygo Fire focuses on handling

Toyota has announced two new trim levels for its Aygo city car – the Aygo Fire and Aygo Ice.

The Aygo Fire and Ice editions feature the latest 2012 Aygo styling, and include upgraded equipment over and above the existing Aygo and Aygo+ trim levels.

Aygo Fire and Ice spec

The Aygo Fire gets 14-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, LED daytime running lights and rear privacy glass, plus a leather steering wheel and gearknob. A standard rev counter puts the emphasis on the city car’s nippy handling and around-town ability (according to Toyota).

The Aygo Ice focuses more on comfort. Its upgraded equipment list includes air conditioning, Alcantara and leather upholstery, and a four-speaker DAB digital audio system with USB port and Bluetooth connectivity.

Both new models are available with the option of Toyota’s Xtraprotected pack. This includes rear parking sensors, mud flaps, carpet mats, a rear bumper protection plate and plastic side protection strips.

Aygo Ice models can also be specified with a Style Pack, featuring chrome rear trim, aluminium sill plates and a chrome exhaust pipe. The Style Pack Plus adds 14-inch alloy wheels.

99g/km CO2 emissions

The Aygo Fire and Aygo Ice get the same 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine as other 2012 Aygos.

The revised 67bhp unit is claimed to deliver fuel economy of 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 99g/km when combined with the standard five-speed manual gearbox. And that means zero annual car tax (VED). The optional Multi Mode automatic returns a claimed 62.7mpg with 104g/km.

Priced from £9,595

Aygo Ice models are available from £9,895 for the three-door variant, rising to £10,250 for the five-door. Fire specification starts at £9,595, with the most expensive Aygo Fire – a five-door with optional air conditioning – priced at £10,950.

On sale in the UK now, the new cars are set to reach customers in March.
