Even though we had seen the looks of the new generation Toyota Aygo before it goes on display at the Geneva Moto Show, we were still surprised when we saw it again. Toyota has always followed a risk aversion policy when it comes to design. But the new Aygo is extraordinarily bold and daring.

The 2015 Toyota Aygo is certainly bold, but we’re not sure about pretty. Toyota says they wanted inject some character into the design of the car, so they came up with this frontal X-graphic thing that spreads outwards across the surface of the bodywork, and takes in all the vehicle’s main external features, including upper and lower grilles, headlamps, foglamps, and even mirrors and side glazing.

The rear-end of the car and its interior design are far more sober, but still pretty funky even by super mini standards. The Aygo, as you may know, is built alongside the new Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1. We reckon the Japanese wanted to be as different to the other two as possible, hence all the weird stuff.

Among the not so weird features of the new 2015 Toyota Aygo we have the new x-touch multimedia system, operated using a fully integrated seven-inch touchscreen, offering a host of connectivity and entertainment services, and a new version of Toyota’s three-cylinder 1.0-litre engine.

The updated three-pot makes 68bhp (51kW) at 6,000rpm and 95Nm at 4,300rpm, and returns 68.8mpg with CO2 emissions of 95g/km. New Aygo will be offered with a five-speed manual transmission or optional new x-shift, a much-improved automated manual transmission.
