For The Aston Martin Cygnet looks smart, fits in tight parking spots and is nimble in town. It’s well equipped, cheap to run, and emissions are low, too.
Against The price is frankly ridiculous for a city car, no matter what badge it wears. You have to choose between rear passengers or boot space.
The Aston Martin Cygnet is a decent city car, and plush, too, but it's virtually impossible to justify the car's eye-watering pricetag.

Aston Martin Cygnet buyers don't have many choices to make - there's one engine (the same 1.33-litre petrol unit found in the Toyota iQ) and one trim (which includes plenty of luxury kit).
Like with any Aston, though, there are dozens of optional extras to choose from, including various paint finishes and interior trim colours, and even a bespoke tailored leather luggage set. There's also the option of a CVT gearbox, but we'd avoid that - it makes the engine far too thrashy when you put your foot down.
In truth, the Cygnet is a decent city car with a very plush feel. However, we simply can't justify spending upwards of thirty grand on a city car, and that's why we can only award it one star.
