The smallest Toyota we're familiar with in the United States is the rapidly aging Yaris, but in in the words of Jedi master Yoda, "there is another," and it's smaller. It's a European-market Toyota called the Aygo, and the Japanese automaker has revealed an updated version that bears an uncanny resemblance to another Star Wars character, Darth Vader. Even more so than the 2018 Mustang, which Ford said was partly inspired by the infamous Sith lord.
The resemblance is all in the front grille. It's the same kind of triangular shape as the mouth section of Vader's helmet. It also has fog lights in each corner, like the silver accents of the helmet. Even the Toyota badge at the top matches the silver circle around the nose section of Vader's headgear. While the same could be said for the previous version, the removal of the black decals that stretched upward from the grille seems to put more emphasis on the big lower triangle.
British consumers on the lookout for a new city car can now go ahead an order the Toyota Aygo X-Claim.
Available with either a 5-speed manual gearbox, or an automated manual transmission, from £14,195 ($18,225) and £14,895 ($19,125), respectively, in the United Kingdom, the limited edition comes in just 350 examples.
