    My car

    ive now been a very proud owner of a toyota aygo for just over a month now, and what a month it has been. The fuel economy is outstanding although with it being so much fun to drive i am probably not getting the full potential. The 1 litre engine is suprisingly nippy, i was expecting it to really struggle in comparison to the 1.6 306 i owned previously but i have never experienced any lack in power from the Aygo. it also holds out well on motorways, although both hands are needed on the whell whenever passing a lorry. boot space is minimal and the only other niggle i have is that with the 3 door model the seats reset to an upright position everytime u let some one in the back and so need constant readjustment but all in all, an amazing car to run, own and drive.

    My car

    This is a very good little car with fantastic fuel economy. It's cheap to insure and only costs £35 a year to tax - wow.

    There's loads of room inside, even in the back, and a very high quality finish. We bought the five-door version in Chilli red and it looks fantastic.

    After a bit of haggling we got mats, side protection strips and front and rear mudflaps thrown in and also got an excellent part-exchange deal on our old car - well done WKB Toyota.

    Considering what we need the car to do, we can honestly say there is nothing about this car we can fault. It comes 100% recommended.

    My car

    Can't say I was blown away on a drive of this one. Thought I would at least try a very small engined car to see if I could sacrifice some comforts (like speed) to try and help save the planet. I couldn't fault it around town at all, light and easy to drive, but on the motorway you have to appreciate the small engine is hard work. To the extent that a hill of any kind does cause the car to slow down and require a gear change. Obviously if town driving is mostly what you do, this is worth a look, otherwise I much preferred the Suzuki Swift. The boot is also VERY small, and I would not feel confident I could overtake traffic on an A-road. Looks-wise, I think this is a great car, especially so in black and running costs are peanuts. But the thought of slowing down on every incline on a long journey was just too depressing.

    My car

    Goodness me, don't let any overwhelmingly positive reviews fool you. I had an aygo for a 2 day test drive and all I can say is, what a lemon.

    First the good: The little 1 litre engine is a hoot! very nippy and throaty. The single wiper is very cute.

    The bad: THE WORST gear change I have ever had to endure. I have a 2005 fiesta and when I returned to it I felt like I was stepping into the future.

    The aygo has a dreadful driving position, is not cheap (same as a new fiesta after discounts) and is ugly from the back.

    Enough said
