Reliability & safety Rating

4.0 out of 5

Toyota is renowned for its strong reliability record and we can only hope the Aygo X will continue to uphold that. Most cars nowadays are plagued by the added complexity of hybrid and electric power, so the simplicity of the Aygo X’s petrol engine makes it seem quite traditional. Alongside a heap of standard safety equipment, this city car should, on paper, be stress-free to own.

Toyota Aygo X reliability

As a brand, Toyota ranked 12th out of 32 manufacturers in our 2023 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, representing drop of several places over the past few years. Only 16% of owners reported a fault in the first year of ownership, praising their car’s low running costs and reliability. On the other hand, the previous-generation Aygo placed a mediocre 66th out of 75 models, with only average scores for reliability and build quality. While this is not necessarily representative of the new Aygo X, we can only hope that the change in underpinnings can see an improvement here.

Safety

Despite its compact size, the Aygo X looks to be one of the safest city cars you can buy. Standard safety equipment includes pre-collision warning with pedestrian detection, emergency steering assist, lane-keeping assist and a reversing camera. Higher-spec cars also get front and rear parking sensors. Despite all of the new safety tech, the Aygo X missed out on top marks in Euro NCAP safety tests, finishing with a score of four out of five stars.
