Finding your favoured driving position isn't easy because there's no seat-height adjustment and no reach adjustment on the steering wheel. Rear visibility is pretty rubbish, too. The ventilation controls are fiddly, but they're nothing compared to the stereo, with can only be controlled with a toggle switch on the steering wheel.
Aston Martin Cygnet Hatchback space & practicality
The Cygnet is just a handspan longer than a Smart Fortwo, yet it can seat four people. Well, sort of. The dashboard is pulled towards the base of the windscreen on the passenger’s side, which allows the front passenger to sit farther forward than the driver and leaves enough space for an adult to fit behind. However, even the smallest children will struggle to squeeze behind an average-sized driver. Boot space is virtually non-existent with all the seats in place.
Aston Martin Cygnet Hatchback equipment
At first, the Cygnet looks pretty generous compared with most city cars. Standard kit includes the plush interior, metallic paint, alloy wheels, climate control, electric windows and mirrors, leather seats, keyless start, and a CD player with an aux-in socket. The again, most city cars don't cost this kind of money. The standard sat-nav you get is a portable system, too.
