Famous for its iconic sports car range British Aston Martin has focused on expanding its market lately, first with the Rapide, a four-door sedan, sports, and now Cygnet micro size. The announcement generated a lot of eyebrows when the car is far from typical of the cars that the automaker sells. Aston Martins official line is that the Cygnet is a "luxury car traveler", who "sees the fundamental values of the company to commit to a new environment." The real reason for the existence of Cygnet is to help the company meet European emission standards. The high efficiency of the new super mini that helps reduce average emissions across its range.
Announced in mid-2009, The Aston Martin Cygnet first start out on the road in 2010. Despite its diminutive size of the car definitely still has a price of Aston Martin, which is expected to sell for around £ 30,000 ($ 50,000 USD). To maintain the quality further, the Cygnet is only available to current owners of Aston Martin, with an expected annual production below 5000.
Despite the high cost, the Cygnet is a custom design is actually based on the Toyota iQ - a low-cost micro car, which debuted in 2008. Under the changes that give the firm strong Aston Martin Cygnet is the basis of the initial models cars share a lot with his brother Toyota - even with the Toyota engine liters values 1.33. The real differences are mainly cosmetic obvious to the outside that has seen the new body panels and lights. The end result looks like a DB9 that has been thrown out of the bonnet bumper in a vice. The interior of the Cygnet has also seen a renewal from the interior feels closer to a classic elegance with Aston Toyota Mini is based.
The Cygnet has received a mixed response from your ad and see how the car will behave once available. Too expensive for the typical micro vehicle owner and, frankly, too shameful to be used by the current owners of Aston Martin. If the Cygnet really is purely an exercise in compliance with the emissions, then the reality is that Aston Martin is 5,000 cars per year, which rarely leaves the garage - not exactly the result of the environment that the EU is proposing.
