Review

The Toyota Aygo offers a distinctive style to go with its frugal fuel economy, great driving position and very good infotainment system. However, when it comes to the driving experience, space and practicality and finance costs it offers, it's outgunned by better rivals such as the Kia Picanto and Volkswagen Up.

Trim: X

Avoid the entry-level X trim, which is about as basic as cars get these days — you get electric front windows but no air conditioning or alloy wheels and, as we've mentioned before, an infotainment system is from the dark ages. 

Engine: 1.0 VVT-i

With just 71bhp, there's enough pep for pottering around town, but the Aygo’s three-cylinder, 1.0-litre petrol engine’s performance can best be described as leisurely on faster roads.
