Aston Martin Cygnet discontinued

Aston Martin unveiled the compact Cygnet city car in 2010 with first customers getting their cars a year later.

In not very surprising announcement, Aston Martin has eliminated the Cygnet from its model line-up and there are no plans for a new supermini in the near future.

The 33k+ Cygnet is basically a Toyota iQ with a more luxurious interior and a tweaked exterior. Even the engine is stock – a 97bhp 1.33-litre four-cylinder petrol unit.

The only real reason Aston Martin launched the Cygnet was to lower marque’s CO2 emissions across the range.

Recently Aston Martin signed a Letter of Intent for technical partnership with Mercedes-AMG, meaning future Aston Martin’s will be getting new powerful, modern and fuel efficient engines.
