The new Toyota Aygo city car has arrived with prices starting from £8,495, the Japanese car maker has announced.

On sale now, the first Toyota Aygo cars will be delivered at the beginning of March to UK customers for both three- and five-door models.

The Toyota Aygo is available with a 1.0-litre petrol engine and a manual transmission, resulting in sub-100g/km of CO2 emissions and free road tax in the UK.

The car is also exempt from London congestion charge payments and delivers up to 65mpg of fuel economy - a rise of up to 4mpg over previous versions.

Toyota has designed two trim levels for the new Aygo, the standard 'Aygo' model and Aygo+. Equipment levels remain unchanged from previous versions but Toyota has introduced high-spec and more stylised 'Fire' and 'Ice' special editions from launch.

Prices for the new Toyota Aygo start from £8,495. Toyota Aygo Ice versions start from £9,985 and Toyota Fire versions start from £9,595.
