Toyota is marketing the Aygo X-Wave in Europe with a humorous ad that forces TV meteorologists to have a lot of trust in the accuracy of their weather forecasts. If they're wrong, then it's a rainy time behind the wheel.
Japan has given the world so much to enthuse over. We're not sure the Toyota Aygo is necessarily one of them as much as, say, the Scion FR-S or Lexus LFA (especially since it's actually made in Europe), but for many Nipponophiles, the centuries-old artistic discipline of Manga certainly is. And now the two have come together in this two-and-a-half-minute animated short.
We love a good automotive-themed prank. Rémi Gaillard remains a favorite, although maybe we should take a closer look at MagicOfRahat, another online prankster. Rahat, who has developed a bit of a reputation for blending in with car seats, giving the impression that there's no one behind the wheel, has taken his talents to Europe, in a new video for Toyota.
Just the other day, Peugeot took the wraps off the new 108. But its new city car, like the 107 it replaces, doesn't stand on its own. The 107 was a sister vehicle to not only the Citroën C1 but also the Toyota Aygo. So it should come as little surprise that, while Peugeot was the first to release photos and details on its version, Citroën and Toyota will also be on hand with their own versions when the veils lift on all three at the Geneva Motor Show.
The five-door version of the next-generation Toyota Aygo, a Euro offering cloned by the Peugeot 107 and Citroën C1, has been caught out on the town wearing all black. Facelifted early last year, predictions are that the next version of the city car will be slightly lower and wider than the current car, with improved ergonomics and materials. Based on what little can be seen for now, a new intake and headlight treatment should be on the menu in front, with taillights placed higher on its bac
Getting word of another special edition from the UK isn't surprising, as we've grown almost numb from the carnival of Mazda, BMW and Citroën models that have been given a few extra gubbins for a few extra quid. But when the Union pairs a Toyota Aygo with Tabasco – as in, the legendary Louisiana hot sauce – consider our eyebrows raised. Except, that doesn't exactly appear to be what this is – it's the Toyota Aygo Tobasco. As in the alternate spelling for the pepper that mak
The 2012 Toyota Aygo is here with better looks, better fuel economy and emissions and better equipment. It's the supermini's first serious overhaul since it was introduced in 2005, and it borrows some of its aesthetic chops from the recently unveiled 2012 Yaris. A bulldog-y stance is emphasized with a jutting lower front bumper with a wide trapezoidal opening, while the lines above have been slenderized.
The massive Toyota sticking-accelerator pedal recall has spread from the United States to Europe and even beyond Toyota-branded vehicles. Approximately 90,000 Peugeot 107 and Citroën C1 minicars have been added to the list of afflicted models. PSA, the parent of Peugeot and Citroën, has a joint venture with Toyota in the Czech Republic that produces the 107, C1 and the related Toyota Aygo.
Toyota Peugeot Citroën Automobile (TPCA) is a European joint venture between Toyota and PSA, the parent company of Peugeot and Citroen. The factory in Kolin, Czech Republic builds the Peugeot 107, Citroen C1 and Toyota Aygo. Until the introduction of the Toyota's tiny iQ, the smallest car that company offered in Europe has been the Aygo. The joint facility has just cranked out its 1 millionth car, a gas-powered C1. Production of the mini-cars started in 2005. Toyota has never given any indi

China's BYD is planning to build a car called the F-1 which it intends to sell for a mere $3,000. At this point, it's unknown what will propel this little machine but it's a safe bet it won't approach its McLaren-built namesake. Apparently, part of the plan to build the car so cheaply was to not bother paying any designers to style it. Instead, BYD seems to have hired someone who simply knows how to use Photoshop. If you look really, really closely, you might notice the vaguest resemblance betwe
For at about the last six months there have been at least four Peugeot 107s running around in the vicinity of Livonia and Ann Arbor, MI with manufacturer plates. Since Peugeot doesn't sell their products in the United States, it was unclear why they were here. It turns out the 107, along with its stablemate the Citroen C1, are built as part of a joint venture between Puegeot/Citroen parent PSA and Toyota, which also yields the Toyota Aygo.
