TOYOTA is launching a glitzy newcomer to the Aygo range, the Aygo x-cite, which has a distinctly waspish appearance featuring the range's mix-and-match customised body elements.

The Aygo x-cite has the "X" nose shape, front pillar extensions, door mirror casings and rear bumper insert - all finished in black and the 15-inch twin-spoke alloys are painted gloss black.

The cabin also strikes the same contrasts with a yellow finish for the seat side bolsters, door panel inserts, air vent surrounds, gearshift knob and carpet mat edging.

The instrument panel, centre console and gear lever surround all feature black inserts and the interior door handles are chrome-finished.

The new Aygo x-cite comes as standard with a seven-inch, multimedia system, with DAB, MirrorLink for compatible mobile phone integration and a rear-view monitor to take the pain out of reversing into tight parking spots.

Other features include six airbags, vehicle stability control, Bluetooth, air conditioning, driver's seat height adjustment, split-folding rear seats, projector headlights with LED tracers, front fog lights and leather steering wheel and gear knob trim.

The Aygo x-cite is powered by Toyota's efficient 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine, with a choice of five-speed manual gearbox or x-shift automated transmission.

All versions are exempt from road tax thanks to COemissions ratings of 95g/km for the manual and 97g/km for the x-shift version.

In official testing the Aygo x-cite achieved combined cycle fuel consumption of 68.9mpg (manual) and 67.3mpg (x-shift).

It goes on sale in the UK in July and prices will be announced nearer the on-sale date.
