Toyota has launched the Toyota Aygo Black (again) featuring extra toys and a metallic black paint job. Prices start at £9,460.
If you want a car to blat around a city or any congested urban area, one of the best there is is the Toyota Aygo. It’s well-built, huge fun to drive and – despite being far from the cheapest in its class – holds on to a good chunk of its value. And if you want a Toyota Aygo with all the toys there’s now a new model – the Toyota Aygo Black.
The Toyota Aygo Black comes complete with all that the Aygo+ offers and then gets some posh upholstery – leather and Alcantara – and leather-covered steering wheel and gear knob. You also get a set of 14″ alloys and the Tempest Black Metallic paint job. And really, that’s about it, but you do also get a year’s free insurance if you’re over 21.
But I think I must be going slightly mad, or writing car news every day has just addled my brain. The bumph Toyota sent us was headed up ‘Black is Back’. Which rather intimated that the Toyota Aygo Black was a returning model. Well, it seems it is. Toyota announced the Aygo Black (along with the Aygo Blue) a year ago. But no mention of it being a limited run and I can’t find any info since to indicate they’d stopped offering the Aygo Black.
So either I’m daft or Toyota are. We asked them why they’re launching a model (which goes on sale in April) they actually launched a year ago. But they haven’t come back to us.
But in case you want one the prices for the Aygo Black are below. But you might have to be quick. For all we know Toyota could be planning on withdrawing the Aygo Black before long so they can launch it again in 2011.
What will that be? Black is Back2?
Update: Toyota did get back to us on the re-release of the Aygo Black and said:
Aygo Black was introduced as a feature model which was subsequently replaced with Aygo Platinum. Due to popular customer demand we have now reintroduced Aygo Black for our 2010 model line up.
So now you know.
