I bought my diesel Aygo in July, i needed a small economical about town car. The only criteria i had was the car had to have air con, 5 doors and be fuel effecient. Well the Aygo has given me all that and looks surprisingly sporty. I drove from kent to Scotland (430 miles) on one tank of fuel, for the first time in 3 years i didn't have aches and pains from sitting so long, the all-in-one front seats are really comfy, there's plenty of leg room, front and back and the seat belts don't dig into your shoulder.
I knew before i bought the car that it is a minimalised dream interior, i didn't like the look of the white surround by the controls but it looks good at night when the lights make it look red. The boot is small but i can get a weeks worth of shopping in there and i did get 2 large holdalls in for my trip
Gripes: 1 The interior door handles are to low down, (couldn't fit in my map books)or ice scraper 2 The rear of the front seats could do with having pockets in.
3 Who created the rubbish locking fuel cap , quarter turn one way then back, swear a couple of times, repeat quarter turn then back, kick car wheels, quarter turn then back, then it will unlock
Well if these 3 gripes are going to be my biggest problem with car then it will turn out to be the best buy i've made.
Have had my Aygo Black for four weeks now, and it replaced a MG ZS which was costing me a bomb to keep on the road! This little nippy town car is great fun to drive, albeit with a little roll in corners, but that just adds to the character. I think Toyota have got it right this time with the small car - it's cheap to run, has no extras to go wrong, and driving it is fun.
I got the black as it had black paint (didn't really like the 2-tone affect you get with other colours vs boot) and alloy wheels. Doesn't look bad!
I bought one of the April 05 press launch cars with 300 miles on the clock from a dealer in Jan 2006, and have racked up 3000 miles (city, A-road, and motorway) since.
It's a cracking little car - in its element in town but surprisingly able to hold its own on the motorway (although you do need to use the gears). It was bought as a more sensible second car to a Honda S2000 and stands up surprisingly well in comparison. I’ve surprised myself on a couple of occasions by reaching for the Toyota key instead of the Honda.
That tiny engine, in particular, is a clever bit of kit - delivering unexpectedly smooth and eager performance whilst returning totally undeserved levels (55+ mpg) of fuel economy. All the major controls are light and responsive, interior quality is fine, seats are very comfy, visibility is superb and parking is a doddle. I also think it’s a good looking little thing – certainly better than its 107 and C1 cousins.
Gripes? Of course the boot is predictably small, and the engine is a little noisy (nice exhaust note though), but that’s about it. I suppose the one thing that niggles away at the back of the mind is whether £7500 is actually that cheap, especially given that you could pick up a well specced 2-3 year old VW Polo/Peugeot 206 etc for similar money.
For me the Aygo is the true spiritual successor to the original Mini – seriously clever, forward thinking, and great fun to drive. Highly recommended.
I actually haven't driven the car, but I had a ride in my grandad's. It seemed fantastic. He told me about how cheap the insurance was, and the tax. I was impressed with the ride and build quality, and it was a very comfortable car.
