Toyota launches a trio of special editions in the UK
Toyota will make this summer a little sweeter in the United Kingdom with three special edition vehicles, the Yaris Ion, Land Cruiser Invincible and Aygo Black.
The Yaris Ion offers up the 1.0L VVT-i gasoline engine available for the vehicle, mated to a five-speed transmission. The starting price of £7,995 includes a whole host of goodies, including Toyota's Easy Flat folding seats, which can fold flat or recline, as well as power windows, mirrors and door locks, an audio system with CD player and concealed storage space under the front passenger seat and in the trunk floor.
The Land Cruiser Invincible gets Toyota's 3.0L D-4D diesel engine with five-speed automatic transmission, boosting output to about 200 hp and almost 350 lb-ft of torque. The Invincible also receives special badging and rear privacy glass and comes in either Argenta Silver Metallic or Astral Black. The extra power costs more money, though -- the Land Cruiser Invincible, of which only 500 are being built, starts at £34,565.
The littlest of Toyota's special edition offerings, the Aygo Black, is named so because of its Tempest Black paint job. Coming in a three- or five-door, the "special" end of special edition consists of "turbine-style" eight-spoke alloy wheels, Aygo-branded scuff plates, leather gear knob. auxiliary jack, power locks, power windows in front, and extra safety perks. Toyota's Aygo Black starts at £7,730.
