Aston Martin Cygnet, as known as the small Aston Martin or Aston Martin based on Toyota iQ. Whatever you call Cygnet, it is sold in Aston Martin dealers with a reasonable price tag. I barely had chance to see a Cygnet, since it was revealed. The main reason for this, Cygnet is an expensive small Aston Martin based on a Toyota, and people want to own a proper Aston Martin.
Despite all the negative reviews and opinions on Cygnet, I still like Cygnet. However, it is only in terms of design. Aston Martin managed to transfer its design culture to this small vehicle. And when you see the Cygnet, you easily understand it is an Aston Martin. This is the same for interior as well. Cygnet’s interior is full of leather and stiches, which is quite rare to spot inside a small Toyota. Even though some of the parts are the same Toyota, you still feel the Aston Martin design culture.
I still consider Aston Martin Cygnet under the fashion item or luxury handbag. Its design and price to functionality resemble with the expensive handbags.
Aston Martin Cygnet is powered by a 1.3-lt petrol engine with 98 HP and 125 Nm of torque. It is coupled with a CVT automatic gearbox. Cygnet needs 11.6 seconds to reach 100 km/h with the top speed of 170 km/h.
