Posted on: Sep 28, 2013 - 2:26pm IST

According to a report on Supercar Kids, Aston Martin has ended the production of the Cygnet, a badge-engineered Toyota iQ which was introduced to address quick city commutes of Aston’s elite customers.

Aston Martin Cygnet
When we say Aston Martin Cygnet, we actually mean Toyota iQ!

Production of the Aston Martin Cygnet began in 2011 and with its production coming to a close in 2013, this model, after the Virage, is an Aston with one of the shortest production spans. The Virage, introduced in 2011, was discontinued in 2012, after just a 1,000 units were made. The Cygnet, which also began its journey in 2011, now faces a dead end. 2011 isn’t a year that Aston would like to remember.

The interiors feature a hand-crafted leather upholstery and some Aston Martin badges.

The Cygnet may only be a grille away from an iQ, but the interior is made more luxurious with hand-crafted leather door trims and leather seats. The mechanicals are retained, with the trusty 1.33-liter Toyota petrol engine pumping out 97bhp and 125Nm, paired either to a 6-speed manual or a CVT gearbox.

According to an Aston Martin spokesperson, the Cygnet is in stock with dealers across the world. A Cygnet would set you back by about 35,000 Euros in Europe (29.57 lakh rupees).

    Sorry for typo error, read as:
    O dear thats sad, since CYgnet is anything but luxury on move within 3 meter. I’m quite obsessed with this car.
    I completely agree with Sri, rather I was dreaming the same for quite some days ago.
