from the press release

“Many of our customers have a need for a small car for urban and city use,” said Aston Martin Chief Executive, Dr Ulrich Bez. “The Cygnet Concept brings intelligence, innovation and artistry to the small car market. The Cygnet Concept represents the natural choice for those customers looking for a premium commuter car. Our past, our future and our backbone will always remain sports cars, but the Cygnet Concept will support this by offering our customers a greater degree of freedom in the urban context.”

I think it's already been proven that the majority of super car owners, particularly Aston owners (due to a survey) do also own a smart car to get around in for every day use. Smart idea from Aston, it'd be nice to see Aston do so well independently from any major car manufacturer now and if this is what it takes then I welcome it. At least they didn't use a smart car as the base for a cygnet ;)

I was just joining the A3 the other day and saw an IQ go past, but it wasn't an IQ it was a cygnet. He didn't hang about but I caught him up and sat behind him for a while. Also saw one yesterday sat at the dealers in Walton-on-Thames.

Isn't the cygnet an attempt by Aston Martin to lower the CO2 average across their cars due to EU regs??? I am sure that is the aim of the car, the rest is just 'spin' to get them through the doors

Yes, this is what I'd read as well.

Lots of attention in the press because of it's price and the Aston Martin brand, and it has a knock-on affect upon the iQ which I'm thinking is positive?:unsure:

No you couldn't take your test in it as the rear view / c pillar is good enough !! Gent on here ages ago who bought one for his driving instructing only to be informed the IQ is one of the few cars that can't be used as such in the UK.

As the Cygnet is basically a rebadged IQ I guess the same applies.
