The wait for this year’s most exciting city car ends in around a month as the 2015 Toyota Aygo is starting to crawl towards dealerships in Europe now. In the U.K. at least, the price and specs list have been released and you can already “go fun yourself” and place an order.
Deliveries will start from July 1st and boy, you have where to chose from. The new Aygo comes in both three- and five-door body styles along with three levels of trim (x, x-play, x-pression) and two special edition models (x-cite and x-clusiv).

Coming with an all-new look, which is very different from what other city cars look thanks to all-Japanese Gundam-inspired styling cues, the new Aygo now also comes with up to 10 interchangeable elements. And despite all the combinations you can get, Toyota says you won’t pay nor wait too much for the right look.

It’s all about the x’s

In the U.K., you can get the entry level Aygo x for as low as £8,595 (3-door version) and it will come equipped with Toyota’s new 1-liter 69 hp gasoline engine mated to a 5-speed manual shifter or a semi-automatic x-shift box. Standard features include 14-inch rims, projector headlights with LED tracer light and LED daytime running lights, 2-speaker audio with AUX and USB connections, power front windows, remote locking doors, hill-start assist, tire pressure monitor and more.

For £9,795, the Aygo x-play adds 15-inch rims, piano black front X finish, color keyed doorhandles and mirrors, leather steering wheel and shifter, 4-speaker audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and buttons on the steering wheel, air conditioning, rev counter, driver seat height adjustment and a 50:50 split-folding rear bench.

The Aygo x-pression starts at £10,995 and will enhance your ride with piano black rear bumper insert and x-tension A-pillars, front foglights, part-leather sporty seats, chrome interior door handles, body colored instrument panel, glossy black center console/gear shifter/air vents, as well as an infotainment system with MirrorLink, DAB and rearview camera.

More fanciness can be obtained through the x-cite or x-clusiv grades, starting at £11,195 and £11,295 respectively, but they’ll only change the rims and offer new color combinations, including that gorgeous orange-black combination you can admire in the photo gallery below.

Hey kid, wanna buy some x...tras?

Of course further options can be had. If you get one of the last two special trims, the x-tra premium pack gets unlocked, adding leather seats, smart entry and start button.

The x-play and x-pression get to have the INstyle, which adds leather seats with accents ranging up to four colors, while for the x-pression you can have the x-tra convenience pack with automatic air conditioning, auto headlamps, smart entry and start button.

No, we’re not done - there’s also the OUTshine pack (no more x, at last) which adds extra chrome detailing, front and rear parking sensors, boot liner, aluminum scuff plates, rubber floor mats and mud flaps. The pack can be fitted to all versions minus the entry level one.

The touch of the X

You’ve probably figured it out now that Toyota is tripping on X so the letter can be also found in the car’s infotainment, which is said to be new by the way. The x-touch uses a 7-inch color touchscreen, has a very user-friendly five-icon arrangement and is the first one in the automaker’s range to come standard with a rearview camera.

The Audio Source icon holds the AM/FM/DAB radio, Bluetooth music streaming along with AUX and USB connectivity modes. Being a youth oriented device, the x-touch will also display album art while you play your favorite songs.

Another cool function is the MirrorLink found in the Connect menu. If you have a compatible smartphone plugged in, its screen will be mirrored on the infotainment system so you can use some applications without looking down at the phone.

Looking at the whole picture, the 2015 Toyota Aygo promises to be exactly what you need in the city - a small, funky, fuel efficient car. Too bad the top model is a bit x-pensive.
