New Toyota Aygo

The new Toyota Aygo has been developed to take the fight to models such as our car of the year – the Hyundai i10 – as well as the Volkswagen up!, Skoda Citigio, and SEAT Mii, which shares largely the same parts. As with the trio of Volkswagen group cars, the new Aygo shares its parts with two other models – the Citroen C1 and Peugeot 108 (in an effort to cut costs), yet still manages encapsulate its own unique character. That comes largely thanks to the Aygo's unique X-styled front end that, to our eyes, makes it far more distinctive than either the Peugeot or the Citroen. The Toyota is also available with a range of accessories that aim to make it highly customisable and even more distinctive. The Aygo has also grown up and now features a hi-tech infotainment system, as well as a more refined interior.

If you live in a built up area and need a car that's easy to park, yet quick enough to cope with motorway traffic, then the Toyota Aygo is worth a look. The Citroen C1 and Peugeot 107 are built alongside the Aygo and they're all but identical. However, the Toyota arguably has a more sought-after badge.

Pros
  • Very cheap to run
  • More space than the old car
  • Fun to drive
Cons
  • Tight rear seats
  • Some cheap plastics inside
  • Not as fun as the old car

The Toyota Aygo is based on the Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1, but gets a much more distinctive look and should hold its value better then the French cars. It gets a revised version of the old car's engine, which is quieter on the motorway and more frugal, while retaining its thrummy engine noise. The interior is also vastly improved, and can now be specced with lots of kit, while the exterior has a wide range customisable options.
