Aston Martin Cygnet Production Ceases

Aston Martin’s luxury city car based on the Toyota iQ, the Cygnet, is ending its production run that began in 2011.

The Cygnet is Aston’s answer for the city car market, and was put together in part to help the brand comply with fuel economy regulations. The small Aston Martin was originally announced in 2010 and began production about a year later.

Using a 1.3-liter motor, the Cygnet delivers just 97 hp. That small displacement engine helps this car run on very little fuel, offsetting the brand’s overall fleet mpg numbers, which are quite high thanks to Aston Martin’s V8 and V12 powered supercars.

Shockingly, an Aston Martin spokesman said dealers across the globe still have Cygnets in stock.

    Aston Martin Cygnet should be re-introduced on the upcoming 453 series smart fortwo. Not just because of the force-fed DI engine driving the rear wheels; but also because of the alliance between Aston Martin and AMG.
