Toyota SA decides on small Aygo

2007-04-04 16:01
Toyota's Aygo a no-go for SA Following months of speculation, Toyota SA has quietly revealed that it will not be selling its Aygo in South Africa.

When the Tazz was discontinued last year, it was largely assumed that Toyota's Aygo, which shares its basic structure and mechanicals with Citroen's C1 and Peugeot's 107, would cater to the sub-R100 000 price bracket.

However, following the launch of the Yaris, there appeared to be much dithering about whether the baby hatchback would in fact be launched in South Africa.

And with the Yaris' runaway success, and the subsequent launch of an entry-level T1 range, it appears Toyota has allowed the Aygo hype to die a quiet death.

The manufacturer has confirmed that it has no plans to bring Aygo to South Africa to compete against the C1 and 107.

"We (Toyota SA) will not be bringing Aygo to South Africa. If we do, it definitely won't be this year," a company official said.
