Latest automotive insights


Toyota scents a city car opportunity in Europe

Toyota has confirmed that it will produce an A-segment city car based on its TNGA-B architecture for European buyers.

The new model could get a new name, but it will probably keep the Aygo nameplate that’s been on sale in Europe for two generations alongside the badge-engineered Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108.
