Toyota’s smallest models nipped and tucked


Toyota has resumed its model updates for 2019 with the latest recipients being its small cars range consisting of the Aygo, Etios and Yaris.


Facelifted in August last year with the same, more prominent X-motif front facia design as its European sibling, the latest revisions to the Aygo sees the X-Play Silver model making way for the X-Clusive that adds front fog lights, a Quartz Grey roof, silver A-pillar, chrome interior door handles and a model bespoke black exterior colour.

At the sharp-end, the folding canvas roof X-Cite benefits from a new orange hue for its fabric top, which can be specified with any of the six exterior colours offered, these being White, Silver, Black, Ash Grey, Caribbean Blue and Cherry Red. The previous black roof version has however been kept. No changes have taken place underneath the bonnet where the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine continues to punch-out 53 kW and 93 N.m of torque, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.

Receiving the smallest of updates, the Etios range now boasts a new alarm and immobiliser with no further alterations being made to the model line-up or underneath the bonnet.

The replacement of the European sourced Yaris it succeeded last year, the now Thai-sourced version comes with the same security upgrades as the Etios, though with the addition of Rear Park Distance Control for the Xs, Sport and Cross derivatives. 

Like its siblings, motivation for the Yaris has been kept as is with the 1.5-litre petrol engine developing 79 kW and 140 N.m, connected to either a five-speed manual gearbox or an optional CVT on the Xs.
