2012 Aygo special editions unveiled

Toyota has unveiled two new Aygo special editions called Fire and Ice.

And, contrary to the possible assumptions of those familiar with the film Blades of Glory, the titles have nothing to do with Will Ferrell.

Toyota chiefs said the models were named after the hot looks of the Fire and cool technology in the Ice.

The Fire is aimed at the style-conscious and comes in burnt orange paint including the side mouldings and matching interior trim. It features 14-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, LED daytime running lights and tinted glass for an exclusive look and added privacy.

The Ice model targets the early adopter technology fan and comes with a USB port, Bluetooth, air conditioning and part-leather upholstery. It is also DAB-ready, allowing access to digital radio with an adapter.

A range of third-party options is currently available, though Toyota will be releasing a tailored DAB adapter "at a later date".

Both special editions have the new Toyota 'small car face' and revised 1.0-litre petrol engine which, in manual form, dips to 99g/km of CO2.

This makes it free to tax - and exempt from charges in the London congestion zone.
