GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show (March 2, 2010), Aston Martin premiered their ultra-compact 'Cygnet Concept' car. Aston Martin says that the 'Cygnet Concept' brings their luxury brand heritage to the small car market and that the car is a statement of their future intent to enter into the urban transport arena.
The Aston Martin 'Cygnet Concept' can seat four people and is equipped with luxury leather sport seats and a leather interior trim.

Under full acceleration, a six-speed manual equipped Aston Martin Cygnet can go from zero to 100 km/h (0-62.14 mph) in 11.8 seconds. The ultra-compact Aston Martin can also be equipped with a Multidrive CVT automatic transmission, and in this case the zero to 100 km/h (0-62.14 mph) acceleration time is 11.6 seconds.

The optional CVT Automatic transmission on the Cygnet delivers a combined fuel consumption rating of 5.1 L/100 km (46.12 U.S. mpg), with CO2 emissions at 120g per km.
