Most of you will know that owning an Aston Martin is something that we can only dream about. Well we recently learned that Aston Martin wants to develop a more affordable car by offering us a smaller alternative. The new car in question is the Aston Martin Cygnet, which we know is based on the Toyota iQ.
We know that the new cars will be based on the small Japanese car, but Aston Martin is putting a few of their own touches to the small vehicle. Autoblog has recently learned from Automotive News that the Aston Martin Cygnet will be released as early as next year, and will prices will start from $32,000.
I know what you are thinking, that’s a lot of money for a re-badged Toyota iQ. We just hope that Aston Martin has a heavy influence on the Cygnet; otherwise, this could turn in to a major headache for the luxury brand.
Automotive News explains that Toyota will assemble the iQ, they will then ship it to Aston Martin will the interior will be upgraded. It looks as though Aton will not perform any performance upgrades.
