Toyota Aygo

Toyota Aygo! Cleverly Styled Decoy

One Of The Best, World’s first-class Ever Tiny Car For City Rides, Toyota Aygo Remains To Be An Entice

Toyota Aygo is a right substitute for the last decade’s historical predecessor models of the same title. As earlier, the Aygo is a joint initiative of two French producers to supply their city cars. These are the Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108 and then Japanese giant Toyota was liable for the entire mechanical add-ons and engineering for the trio. The Toyota Aygo also elements precise bodywork to support its looks, one of a kind and wonderful city car from the rival two models of French automaker.

All-new Range Of Models

Directing the attraction of the new Toyota Aygo, it’s the contrasting coloured ‘X’ throughout the nostril of the automobile, main up toward the side windows. This is one element and part of Toyota’s purpose to make the Aygo enchantment to a younger car on account that the ‘X’ and quite a lot of distinctive explanations of the vehicle’s exterior. The cabin design may also be customized. Both three and 5 door iterations are on hand however, the dependent glass tailgate remains to be there. This model has a larger and deeper boot than the previous models.

Greatly Better Interior

the cabin design is borrowed from Aygo’s sister automobiles and embodies a gigantic jump over the older cars’ ancient customary style, unusually when outfitted with the seven-inch colour ‘X-contact’ media display and the infotainment screen. The entire plastics used in the cabin are robust and resilient, however they consider just right-assembled and are curiously-styled.

The X-Theme

That X-theme continues with the Aygo specification grades on its five model trims, available from launch: X, X-Play, X-Pression and two entitled variations symbolised to as X-Cite and X-Clusiv.

Toyota Aygo Powerful Engine Family

Toyota is famous for its 2.0-Litre engines across the globe, and they are also pioneers in introducing the world’s first most successful hybrid technology. They are also pioneers in synergy drive technologies.

Under the brand new Toyota Aygo’s bonnet is a swelled variation of the Toyota 1.0 litre, three-cylinder petrol engine gives a muscular feel and it produces around 68bhp and without any difficulty a muscular torque of 95Nm from this tiny engine, affectivity and efficiency is satisfactory, and enough for city use. Combined with the light-weight sub-one tonne body, Toyota claims its petrol efficiency at a natural ratio of 69.9 miles per gallon with the manual gearbox, the engine system emitting simply 95g/km of CO2 on the go.

Gearbox Modes

Toyota always offer several kind of gearbox modes in its models from manual to automatic and hybrid as well. According to Toyota, in the Aygo, five speed manual gearbox is stunning for this style of car.

Automated Transmission

The automated transmission offered on this system and it is referred to as X-Shift. It’s not yet established that there will be any diesel powered variation will be available. Toyota presents defence sense costume on the Aygo with crash prevention system to warn the driver way before any incident occurs.

Toyota Avensis

The Toyota Avensis Is Still In The Market With Its Aged But Reliable Built

When it comes to fuel economy Avensis is the Best family Car

The Toyota Avensis is one of the most trustworthy, practical and efficient saloon cars available in the market

The Toyota Avensis is a large family car and well seen Icon on the roads of UK due to its reliability and comfortable drive. This car is built in Derbyshire, UK, by the Japanese automaker Toyota since 1997.

It is not a hot cake of the automobile market because of its boring and dull look. There are far better options than Avensis but under the tag of Toyota, Avensis feels secure to capture the audience. It competes in a crowded marketplace full of very talented rivals like the Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, VW Passat, Vauxhall Insignia and Kia Sportage.

Low running cost engine range gives Toyota Avensis enough space to breathe in the overcrowded market

The Toyota Avensis is mostly used by high annual mileage consumers because of its economical fuel consumption diesel engines. There is a 1.6 litre diesel engine known as the most frugal engine that returns up to 68m/g fuel average with emissions of CO2 at the rate of 108g/km.

2.0 litre diesel engine

2.0 litre diesel engine

This diesel engine is equipped with manual gearbox and takes the car from 0-62m/h in 11.4 seconds. As we discussed above, Avensis is the best for covering long distances where sprint is not highly concerned. Then 2.0 litre diesel engine with 141bhp is in line, a little bit quicker than its predecessor and takes the saloon from 0-62m/h in 9.0 seconds.

Overall performance of both these diesels is good. There is a 2.2 litre diesel engine, with more power of 175bhp, available in the market, though it is not as fast as anyone might expect. The gearbox seems to be setup for comfortable cruising rather than sprinting.

 Though, a single petrol engine is not enough to cover the whole range of its rivals, but economically proves it the best.

The petrol engine range is simple one with only one 1.8 litre petrol engine that comes with a manual and automatic gearbox, but the fuel consumption of this engine is very healthy and sporty for long drives.

CVT Gearbox

CVT Gearbox

It is equipped with a CVT gearbox that seems to hold the engine revs high for far too long when you accelerate and leaves you feeling quite disconnected from the car. The engine produces a power of 145bhp and a good amount of torque. It takes the car from 0-62 m/h in 10.4 seconds with manual gearbox and 9.4 when equipped with automatic gear shift system.

Overall features’ highlights of the Toyota Avensis

Each version of engine, whether in petrol or diesel, performs reasonably well and gives a smooth drive. Toyota Avensis is used as a company car so it is best considered for town and motorway driving at a reasonable speed with best fuel economy. It is a comfortable car to spend time in.

The suspension is noticeably soft, giving a comfortable ride. The front and rear seats have enough space which provides a pleasant feel during drive. Though the Toyota Avensis remains dull in its look and the trim range is simple too, but the equipment levels are fairly generous.

Toyota Hybrid Cars to Receive Electronic Fuel Saving Chips

Toyota has developed electronic chips for their electric Hybrid cars to boost fuel efficiency

Though Hybrid cars are fuel efficient and eco friendly but quest for more fuel economy is still there so, Toyota has developed an electronic chip for its petrol-electric hybrid vehicles. These electronic chips will help the engine to boost fuel efficiency by 10 percent and allow the Japanese automaker to inaugurate the hybrid system on most of its vehicles.

Denso Corporation – the vendor firm of Prius Hybrid systems and several other auto parts for Hybrid systems – have mutually developed a semiconductor through carbon compounds and silicon. This semiconductor limits the power loss and provides the bases for even smaller Hybrid systems.

Kimimori Hamada, an engineer at Toyota Corporation, said “A key way to improve fuel efficiency is to improve power semiconductor efficiency,” This redirection in engineering from mechanical to electrical shows that how carmakers’ aggressiveness is progressively tied to electronics, more willingly than to traditional mechanical engineering.

It also exposes the extent for some more improvements in electric Hybrid technology. It is almost two decades since the electric Hybrid Prius was launched by Toyota in 1997 and are leading the market. This electronic system is not an invention because it is already used in trains, computer systems and air conditioners, but it is unique because of its first use in automobile to control the power.

Hybrid vehicles used energy reproduction and restoration systems that restore the energy produced from braking process and then use it in the combustion system to improve the mileage. It is a very sophisticated power control unit that regulates the power supply by delivering the power to the motors while running and charging the batteries when braking. The power control unit is based on silicon semiconductors to efficiently control the power redirection.

Inside the PCU are power semiconductors, currently made from silicon, that control the flow and the direction of electric current. The new chips are relatively slim and smart and will allow Toyota to reduce the size of current PCU by 80 percent and weight by 18kgs.
