Wondering why haven't we chosen the almost-identical Citron C1 or Peugeot 107? Well, the Aygo costs less and should be worth more when you sell, thanks to the Toyota badge on the nose.
The three-cylinder, 1.0-litre engine can be a bit noisy when you're accelerating, but you do get excellent economy and low emissions.
We've avoided the cheapest trim because there's no central locking, electric front windows or side airbags, which makes it too much of a compromise.
Auxiliary-input CD player (six speakers), driver and passenger airbags, electric front windows, remote central locking, side airbags, split-folding rear seats.
