Next-gen Toyota Aygo spied for the first time

The first official images with the second generation Toyota Aygo have been published online ahead of the model's debut tomorrow in Geneva.

 2014 Toyota Aygo first pics hit the web 
 
Joining the already revealed 2014 Peugeot 108 and Citro├źn C1, Toyota's Aygo will share the platform with its French cousins but with a different front fascia as well as a unique rear end. Chances are the new Aygo will be available in three- and five-door body styles along with a retractable fabric roof as seen in the open-top versions of the 108 (TOP!) and C1 (Airscape).

Compared to the outgoing model, the new one will grow in size a little bit and will receive higher-placed taillights. Chances are the 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine will be tweaked to produce more than the current 67 bhp (50 kW) and 69 lb-ft (93 Nm) output, while fuel consumption should be lower than 4.4 liters / 100 km (53.4 mpg US or 64.2 mpg UK). There aren't any details right now about a diesel engine.
 
The trio will make use of the same three-cylinder engines sending power to the front axle through at least a five-speed manual transmission. Production of all three cars will take place in Czech Republic and it seems diesel engines won't be offered since a while ago Peugeot said it's costly to produce Euro 6-compliant diesels in Europe.

Check back tomorrow for full details.
