Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The Aygo X is the smallest car in the Toyota range, but there’s little cause for complaint when sitting in the driver’s seat. The seat is height-adjustable, the steering wheel and pedals line up nicely and the instrument cluster and dials are very clear; its simple layout consists of a large analogue speedometer flanked by a bar-graph rev counter and fuel gauge, and with a 4.2in colour screen inset. This displays useful information including your speed, fuel economy and media selection. 

The steering wheel adjusts for height but not reach, but shouldn’t cause too much discomfort for those drivers who need to slide their seat all the way back. Storage space up front is good, with two cupholders, a tray for phones ahead of the gearlever, a good-sized glovebox and fairly big door bins.

The infotainment system is very easy to use, with a simple main menu for your navigation, media and phone functions. The size of the touchscreen ranges from 7.0 to 9.0in, depending on trim level; it’s a bit laggy and often requires a second prod when making inputs. It does provide Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, though, so you can bypass Toyota’s own software and run your own phone apps through the screen. 

All versions come with both a USB charging port and 12v power outlet, which are both placed just below the climate controls. Step up to Exclusive trim and you’ll benefit from wireless phone-charging, while a punchy JBL premium sound system is available as an option. There's also a Toyota app that allows you to check information about the car remotely, including fuel levels, warning messages and where it is parked.

The interior of the Aygo X feels solidly screwed together, and while there are no plush fabrics or soft-touch plastics around the dashboard, the brightly coloured trim inserts do a good job of lifting the atmosphere. You do get nicely finished materials for areas you touch more frequently, such as the steering wheel and gear knob (which are both leather wrapped). The climate controls also feel sturdy, as do the steering wheel buttons and indicator stalks.
