aston martin cygnet best famliy cars

The Aston Martin Cygnet is a luxury microcar manufactured by Aston Martin and derived from the Toyota IQ. Its purpose is to allow Aston Martin to comply with the strict emissions rule by the European Union in place in 2012[1]. Cygnet will be available initially only in the UK, and then to other EU countries.

Aston CEO Ulrich Bez recently announced shipping expectations of about 4000 per year at a price of about £30,000.[2] Bez states that the Cygnet demonstrates the companies commitment to innovation and integrity, whist respecting the need to satisfy demands of emissions and space.

The Cygnet has 98 bhp (73 kW; 99 PS) 1.3L straight-4 engine, it produces 110g of CO2/km and the fuel consumption is 58.9 mpg-US (3.99 L/100 km; 70.7 mpg-imp).[3]
In the recent "Top Gear Season 15, Episode 3", the Cygnet was recently made fun of in the "News" section of the program. Presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond all unanimously expressed distaste for the concept.
