2012 Toyota Aygo Fire and Ice

Toyota Aygo 2012 Toyota Aygo Fire and Ice

Toyota is launching special edition versions of its Aygo city vehicle in United kingdom.

They are named the Fire and Ice, but in spite of the fancy title there is not much to get excited about. The Aygo is driven by 1.-litre VVT-I petrol revised to make significantly less CO2, and to hell with energy! What ever transmission you select, it will do over 60mpg on the combined cycle.

As for the features, the Aygo fire gets 14-inch alloys, front foglights and LED daytime running lights, rear privacy glass, leather steering wheel and gear knob trim and a rev counter. There is an choice for the Burnt Orange paint finish, but that does not make the auto seem a lot more extraordinary.

The Aygo Ice is all about convenience, and attributes air conditioning, Alcantara and leather trim, a far more powerful four-speaker sound method that is DAB-prepared, Bluetooth and a USB port for connecting digital music players.
