3.5 out of 5

Unlike many rival manufacturers which are launching electric superminis like the Fiat 500 and MINI Electric, Toyota is sticking with a small petrol engine for the Aygo X. While this doesn’t have the stark running cost advantages, it does ensure the small Toyota is relatively affordable to lease or buy.

Toyota Aygo X MPG & CO2

There is no choice of powertrains in the Aygo X – your only decision is whether to specify the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine with a five-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox – the former returns up to 58.9mpg and emits from 109g/km of CO2, while the auto posts figures of 56.5mpg and 113g/km. During our test drive, we saw just 40.1mpg on the trip computer. For this reason, we’d say the manual is a better bet unless you really need the ease of an automatic in urban traffic, or you have an automatic-only driving licence.

Emissions of just over 100g/km mean the Aygo X sits in a middling Benefit-in-Kind band for company car drivers.

Insurance groups

The Aygo X wins back points for being cheap to insure; entry-level manuals sit in the frugal insurance group five, while even fully loaded automatic cars only reach group seven. Its VED (road tax) bill will also be the standard amount for combustion-engined models, keeping additional costs to a minimum.  

Warranty

Following the standard three-year/60,000 mile warranty, the Aygo X also qualifies for Toyota’s ‘Relax’ warranty, which can cover the car for up to 10 years/100,000 miles, and is activated each time the car is serviced at a Toyota dealership; if you’re happy to stick to these terms, it’s even longer than the seven-year warranty offered with the Kia Picanto.

Servicing

For around £15 a month Toyota will provide the first three services and roadside assistance for three years.
