Toyota SA has expanded its Aygo model range. Take a look...

'Toyota has added an exciting new derivative to its Aygo range and this one comes with street cred', writes Wheels24's Janine Van der Post as she drives the new X-Cite convertible.

Cape Town - The Western Cape is made for convertibles or at least a retractable sunroof. However, more often than not, previous droptops required the driver to pull over to the side of the road to open/close the roof.

Now, it takes less than as 15 seconds on the fly up to speeds of 40-60km/h.
