Once a car is a good chunk through its production cycle it is not unusual for a manufacturer to give it a “facelift.” An automotive nip and tuck tends to be rather minor and very rarely changes the overall feel of the product. For 2012 the Aygo is getting this treatment and so to are its identical sisters, the C1 and 107.
The shared platform has been a huge success in europe for all three brands involved, these updates simply add an extra layer of polish. The engines now produce under 99g/km of CO2 making them all UK road tax and congestion charge exempt. A smattering of new bodywork turns the rather ugly duckling of the group, the C1, into one of the best looking. Daytime running lights have also been added to meet new European requirements.
