Toyota released today photos and details of the new Pixis Epoch, a model based on a Daihatsu vehicle which will join the Pixis Space in the range.
The new Toyota Pixis Epoch is 3,3 meters long, 1,4 meters wide and 1,5 meters tall and even if it won’t win any beauty contest, the Japanese car maker thinks that it is a good alternative for more expensive models in the segment.
Under the hood sits a tiny 600cc engine able to deliver 51 horsepower and 60 Nm of torque, a unit linked to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Thanks to the small power train, the Japanese models returns a fuel economy of 3,3 liters/100km and CO2 emissions of 77 g/km.
“Available in eight pleasing colors such as Cotton Ivory, the Pixis Epoch sports a simple form without extraneous elements, giving it an air of sophistication with advanced and vibrant styling,” says Toyota.
The company says that the model can easily accommodate four adults while modern features such as satellite navigation and automatic air conditioning are available for the range-topping versions. Toyota prices the new Pixis Epoch at €7,670 (795,000 yen) in Japan.
