The Aston Martin guide to towing
Can you combine a city car with a V12 GT? We strap a trailer to a Virage and tow a Cygnet through Monaco...

The Toyota iQ is a brilliant little city car, and the upscaling by Aston doesn't make it less brilliant, just more expensive and fragrant. It's an accessory, an extra. After all, nobody needs a four-grand Hermès handbag. It doesn't shorten the waiting list or stop them selling like superheated Battenbergs. Think of the Cygnet as Aston Martin's Porsche Cayenne moment: it might not be within the strict measure of the brand's accepted norm, but it opens out a revenue stream that will keep the company healthy. And ‘healthy' means more of the type of cars that really represent the spirit of the brand.
