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.

get the best price

You have to put up with steel wheels, but X-Play gets air conditioning, electrically operated door mirrors and a leather steering wheel and gear knob. And don't forget that you get the 7.0in infotainment system (with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a DAB radio and Bluetooth), a rear-view camera and driver's seat height adjustment.

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.
