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.

      I rented an Aygo in Ireland for a 10 days recently. It's a great little car. Tons of fun to drive through the countryside and the one lane highways with flying sheep.

      Why would anybody want to drive a retarded looking thing like that??? It looks like a wheel chock.

      Just when you thought a Toyota couldn't get uglier, they do!

      Toyota is the worse company and I don't care what their vehicles look like.

      They treat their customer like crap and now that I have had a chance to really understand how the automobile industry works, I will never buy another Toyota ever again.

      I went to a dealership and the dealers were high pitched and unscrupulous.

      Now that I've shopped around I know what good customer service and honest business practices are really about.

      I want everyone in the world to know how much I despise Toyota for selling me a piece of junk and how little Toyota cares about how they are perceived by a customer who has honest complaints about their crappy products.

      I will put money into anything Toyota for as long as I live.

      Wish we'd get them in the US. Looks cool.

      looks like a shrunken european honda civic! Unless I am imagining things, it appears that too many manufacturers are ripping each other off design wise.

      Yaris Ion? that's interesting.

      Speaking of ripping each other off, Toyota Agyo, Citroen C1, and Peugeot 107 are all the same car, and was designed a few years before the EU Civic.
