Aston Martin Cygnet discontinued

Added in: Aston Martin

The British sports car maker Aston Martin has decided to show the doors to the Cygnet. For the uninformed, the Aston Martin Cygnet is nothing but a badge-engineered Toyota iQ. The Aston Martin Cygnet was showcased in 2010 and went into production in the year 2011. According to a report by SupercarKids, it has emerged that Aston Martin have stopped the production of the Cygnet City car.


The Cygnet has identical looks with the iQ, but the interior, as expected from a Aston Martin, is totally luxurious.

Mechanically, the Cygnet is powered by the same 1.3 litre petrol engine from the Toyota iQ. This engine churns out 97 bhp of max power @ 6000 RPM and 125 Nm of peak torque and is mated to a 6-speed manual or a CVT gearbox.

As is the case with all luxury and supercar makers who need to find a way to trim their average Co2 emissions, the Cygnet was designed to help Aston Martin lower its whole-range emissions. But now as it is dropped from production, it is interesting to see the next course of action from Aston Martin.

According to the sources from SupercarKids, the Cygnet is available in stock with dealers all over the world. Retailing at a hefty price tag of more than £32,000 before options, it is illogical to spend so much on a badge-engineered Toyota iQ with luxury interiors. So if you are willing to spend that much of money, you can visit the dealership and get yourself this baby Aston Martin till the stocks last.

    The Cygnet was not made to lower AML’s emissions for two reasons:

    1) It’s a Toyota so counts against their CO2 figures.
    2) Aston make less that 10k units per year so do not have to lower their average CO2 emissions; they are a small volume manfacturer and so are exempt.

    The Cygnet was simply a very bad idea from an out-of-touch CEO.

    Please stop perpetuating this myth!
