Seven trim levels are offered: x, x-play, x-press, x-style, x-cite, x-clusiv and x-claim. Entry-level models get 14in steel wheels, LED day-running lights, front electric windows and USB connectivity as standard, while upgrading to x-play fits 15in steels, heated door mirrors, air conditioning, DAB radio and Bluetooth to the package.
Mid-range x-press trimmed cars are adorned with 15in alloy wheels, climate control, front foglights, and a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system complete with a reversing camera, while x-style adds a sporty looking bodykit to the Aygo.
The range-topping trims start with the x-cite, which comes with a red paint job, a black roof and alloys, and tinted rear windows, while those pining for an x-clusiv Aygo will find automatic projector headlights, climate control and keyless entry and go. Completing the Aygo line-up is the limited edition x-claim model which adds plenty of fresh air through its retractable burgundy-coloured roof.
The latest Aygo must be measured in this department against some high standards that never troubled the previous version.
To really stand out, it needs to be as cleverly packaged as an i10, as classy as an Up and as charming as a Fiat Panda. It’s not quite any of the above, but it certainly does enough on all three fronts to be considered a credible alternative.
