    Joint Venture between PSA and Toyota. Quite popular in France. The new Peugeot version (108) looks like quite a prestige little car.

    Can you imagine the response of the Australian market - how would they ever comprehend a Toyotroen - wouldn't it challenge far too many myths?

    Don't say that to a 2CV owner or a Traction Avant owner.

    They used the Toyota Aygo version to play soccer with in TopGear. Sturdy little nuggets. Aston Martin use them too (two door version) they dress them up in chrome & leather. They do it so the average fuel consumption drops across their fleet as required by law. Cheeky Brits. Real citroen vs?-imageuploadedbyaussiefrogs1405579844.004819.jpg

    Must be the same person who has lost a sphere, claiming the metal ball is space junk, the sphere complete with the rust is now on sale for 100k on Gumtree, some people will do anything, come again there was a funny moon on show a few days ago, I'm just going for steel springs now, me thinks too many persons now drink green wine or what ever.

    Toyota has never done a joint venture with either.

    In fact the only joint venture Toyota could contemplate in either case is after the Toyota board has smoked many joints.

    I have read comments from England that the newly released Aygo/C1 suffers from bloat, AKA middle-aged spread and has lost the raw appeal of the first variant (including the facelift).

    So, maybe we will eventually see it here with something like a 1.4 turbo and stopstart... For while we don't have the UK or French emissions taxes everything is sold on it's sizeable donk.
