Warwickshire, England Recent reports show that Aston Martin has developed a new Luxury commuter concept and have dubbed the new project the ‘Cygnet'. The Cygnet is said to offer customers distinctive, intelligent and exclusive solutions for urban travel in style and luxury.

The new concept will offer the same trademark quality and prestige you would expect from Aston Martin, but simply packaged into a small car commuter design.

Based on the critically acclaimed Toyota iQ (that has a Euro NCAP 5-star safety package) Aston Martin want to add this to their range and gain access to a new market.

The ‘Cygnet' concept represents a new creative presence for Aston Martin. Having small car characteristics and fuel efficiency that you would expect from Toytota, the Cygnet also manages to have that look, feel and finish of any Aston Martin vehicle.

Aston Martin Chief Executive, Dr Ulrich Bez had this to say: "Now is the right time for Aston Martin to take this first bold step to embark on this special project - made possible with the support of an organisation of Toyota's stature and capability and the intelligent design and perfect city car package of the iQ."

Aston Martin are best known for their  prestige design and exclusive engineering and are collaborating with Toyota one of the world leaders in volume, quality and reliability. Although this might sound like a miss match of sorts, both car manufactures believe and share  the same philosophy of engineering excellence and innovation.

Dr Ulrich Bez also added - "Much work is still required, but I am confident that this project could become reality in the not too distant future. This concept - akin to an exclusive tender to a luxury yacht - will allow us to apply Aston Martin design language, craftsmanship and brand values to a completely new segment of the market."

"The offering of a ‘Cygnet' with a DBS, DB9 or Vantage is a unique combination of opposites and a novel transport solution, allowing intelligent and sensitive mobility on an exclusive and innovative level."
