TOYOTA has revealed details about its Aygo X urban crossover which will be arriving in the next few months.

Designed specifically for European markets, the Aygo X follows on from other crossovers in the Japanese car maker's line up such as the Yaris Cross.

It replaces the Aygo city car - which was built as a joint venture by Toyota, Peugeot and Citroen - and sits some 50mm higher.

At 3.7 metres long, it is also 23.5cm longer and comes with dynamic SUV-style designs with a city-friendly turning circle of 4.7 metres.

Cargo capacity is increased by 60 litres to 231 litres and the car will be powered by a 1.0-litre three cylinder petrol engine developing 71bhp.

Maximum cargo space is 829 litres.

A five-speed manual gearbox is standard while a CVT transmission will be available as an option.

Performance figures are a top speed of 98mph with a 0 to 62mph acceleration time of 15.6 seconds with an official fuel return of 60mpg from its nine gallon tank. Emissions are rated at 109g/km.

True to its SUV styling, the Aygo X has a high driving position and will be available with a retractable canvas roof which Toyota is claiming as a first in the small crossover segment.

A nine-inch touchscreen in the centre of the dash allows for smartphone connectivity which gives access to a range of apps while higher grade models will have cloud-based systems for more information including navigation.

LED lights are standard fit and the Aygo X comes with a full range of safety features such as pedestrian detections, adaptive cruise control and lane tracing as well as a driver fatigue monitor and Toyota's pre-collision system.

Prices are still to be announced but are likely to start from just below £15,000 when the Aygo X arrives in 2022.
