Geneva Motor Show: Aston Martin Cygnet
March 2, 2010 § Leave a comment
Here’s the means by which Aston Martin gets to bring down its corporate average fuel economy: the Cygnet, a reworked and upgraded Toyota iQ. Conceived as a second commuter car for existing Aston owners, it has the Toyota 1.3-litre engine (98bhp; 58.9mpg and 110g/km of carbon dioxide) and six-speed manual gearbox (CVT optional). It’s suitably fitted out with lashings of hand-stitched leather and alcantara, sat nav, a high-spec audio system and aluminium trim. No word yet on pricing, though it ain’t going to be cheap.
