UPDATE: We have a full image gallery of the Toyota Aygo X-cite, take a look...

Johannesburg - The Toyota Aygo is synonymous with both style and originality. Its famous colour scheme, characterised by the familiar Piano Black used for the X dominating the car's front end, is a true sight to behold, says Toyota SA.

Although oozing copious amounts of chutzpah and character already, Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) was still not done with the Aygo, and has now introduced the new Aygo X-Cite to the model line-up.

Other models include the Aygo and Aygo X- Play Black.

The X-Cite offers South African buyers the option of an affordable, open-top compact hatch with its retractable canvas roof model.

Finished in black, the full-length X-Cite canvas roof is factory-fitted and electrically-operated with a switch next to the map light control in the headlining. The full length retractable roof also ensures that even those travelling in the rear seats also get to enjoy some of the wind-in-the-hair experience.

Buyers of small city cars have come to expect more from their vehicles; stylish design, great fuel efficiency and a number of standard features – and all Aygo models deliver on this front.

What to expect:

• Exciting exterior design
• Vibrant interior
• High specification level including touch-screen audio
• Competitive pricing

The familiar 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine found in other Aygo models will animate the X-Cite. It delivers 51kW/95Nm at 4300rpm. The compact power plant utilises a high 11.5:1 static compression, which pairs perfectly with the urban demeanour of the new Aygo, claims the automaker.

It’s good for a sub-15-second 0-100km/h sprint time and fuel economy is rated at just 4.4-litres/100km (combined cycle). A 5-speed manual transmission is offered, which transmits the power to the front wheels.

The X-Cite also comes standard with Vehicle Stability Control, LED daytime running lights, 15” alloy wheels, SRS Airbags (Driver +Passenger +Side +Curtain) and a short pole Antenna.

A 3-year or 100 000km Warranty is standard with a service plan being optional.
