What Car? says...
It’s often said that good things come in small packages, and while that's not always the case — think wasps and Napoleon — the current crop of city cars, which includes our featured Toyota Aygo, are generally getting better and better.
Why do we say that? Well, there was a time when buying a city or value car meant serving upon yourself a sentence of misery in automotive purgatory: threadbare equipment levels, wheezy engines and iffy handling were just a few of the drawbacks. Things have certainly changed, and the Aygo competes for sales against the VW Up, Hyundai i10 and Kia Picanto in a far more sophisticated city car market.
