The highlight of this car is undoubtedly the youthful design. Toyota took special care in crafting this vehicle and the designers did a splendid job in rendering excellent looks of the car. The design is a hit or miss with the masses. It looks so youthful and dynamic that younger customers can get deeply attracted in no time. The reason for this kind of styling is Toyota wants the customers to get connected with the car emotionally. The compact cars are high in practicality, but they are often low in desirability. New Toyota Aygo changes this trend.
Toyota calls this design “J-Playful”. The highlight of frontal design is the bold “X” design, which runs from the front mirrors to the bottom of front bumper via the headlights. For this purpose, the headlights are made sharp and small. Due to the small design of the headlamps, Toyota included projectors for good visibility. A first-in-class feature and it is also a costly affair to introduce projector lights in this segment car.

Tail portion accentuates the overall design by including a hexagonal shaped tailgate with bold design. The wheelbase stands at 2,340 mm, trunk capacity is 168 liters and 15 inch alloy wheels are provided.
