This makes good sense. Its cheap but still exclusive. And the car does look very good

Aston Martin says that work on the Cygnet is ongoing but expects to put the car into production before the end of 2010. And of course, while it is essentially an iQ under the skin, a hefty premium is only to be expected; expect to shell out upwards of £20,000 (UK) to cruise the city streets in consummate style.


But should Aston really be rebadging a Toyota iQ?

Aston Martin should produce and give out a sticker that reads: "My other car is a DBS" along with the Cygnet!

"The Cygnet is just one example of the tradition-busting ways in which car makers—particularly low-volume exotic sports-car makers—are scrambling to rethink their model lineups and business strategies to meet ever-tougher fuel-economy rules in the U.S. and other major markets around the world."

Never knew Marques like Aston would do something like this to survive.
The least they could do was atlest make a hatch back which looks a little exclusive.

IMO the Toyota looks a little better compared to the cygnet

Aston kills pint-sized Cygnet.
