Video: Aston Martin Cygnet... it's not a Toyota. Really.

Aston Martin swears the Cygnet isn't a Toyota – Click above to watch video after the jump

Aston Martin has begun its PR assault to attempt to assure its customers that the Cygnet is more than a gussied-up Toyota iQ. The company just released a new video detailing exactly what makes the compact fit into the Aston Martin bloodline. Brace yourself for an onslaught of terms like "tailor fit" and "owner-customized." As with the rest of the company's products, buyers will be able to slather their Cygnet in a bevy of custom interior materials and colors, as well as an array of exterior paint colors. We're even assured that the pint-size Aston will smell like the real deal.

And to think we were worried.

All jesting aside, the Cygnet should help Aston Martin significantly raise its average corporate fuel economy in preparation for ever stricter emissions regulations. Still, we don't exactly see James Bond getting the girl from behind the wheel of this thing. Hit the jump to see the video for yourself.
