Aston Martin Cygnet pricing announced (UK)

Aston Martin will launch a duo of special editions of its new Cygnet city-car. The special editions will be called White and Black, the brand confirmed.

On the White version, “Snow White” paintwork, white diamond alloy wheels, chrome highlights, and white leather seats will dominate, while on the Black edition, matte black louvers, “Magic Black” paintwork, black leather seats, and dark chrome accents will feature.

Transmission wise, a 6 speed manual will be standard, while a CVT can be obtain optionally. Powering the car will be a Toyota-sourced 1.33 VVT-i petrol engine, developing 97bhp (98PS/72kW) and 123Nm (92lb-ft) of torque.

The Cygnet can reach 62mph (99km/h) from 0mph in 11.8 seconds and return 56.5mpg (4.9l/100km) when linked to the manual, although the CVT is 0.2 seconds quicker at 11.6 seconds, but not so fuel efficient at 54.3mpg (5.2l/100km). Carbon emissions are roughly at 116g/km for the manual and 120g/km for the CVT.

Huge importance is being placed on the interior, hence why Aston Martin will imprint ‘Handcrafted in England’ on the door sill plates. The roof lining is finished in Alcantara to give a sense of quality.

The special editions will arrive with a specially made Bill Amberg five-piece luggage set, including a glove box bag, removable door pocket bag, holdall, garment bag and collapsible tote bag. Other standard features will consist of a satellite navigation system, x9 airbags, ESP, electrically adjustable/heated/folding door mirrors, keyless entry & start, heated front seats, and HomeLink w/auto dimming rear-view mirror.

With order books already wide open, the special editions will cost from £30,995 (€36,500). Production of the Cygnet White and Black will start in April.
