Two adults can sit comfortably in the front of the Aygo. There’s certainly enough head-, leg- and shoulder room; in fact about as much as the impressive Volkswagen Up.
There are good-sized door pockets while ahead of the gearlever is a large cubby hole incorporating two cupholders. Considering how small the Aygo is, the glovebox is large and will definitely hold more than the handbook.
Toyota Aygo rear space
As a rule, the rear cabins in city cars are not the most comfortable for adults. The Aygo is no different. Getting to the rear seats isn’t the easiest job. Once there, tall people will feel hemmed in with their knees brushing the front seats and their heads touching the ceiling.
There’s not much in the way of shoulder room and the armrests are too short. There are door pockets for the rear passengers, although they’re smaller than those in the front. There are no pockets on the front seatbacks.
For those needing to carry four people, a Hyundai i10, VW Up or Skoda Citigo will be a better choice.
Toyota Aygo seating flexibility
The Aygo’s rear seats split 50/50 and fold down almost flat to open up the cabin. The seatbacks aren’t especially heavy items, so are easy to fold down.
There’s no folding front seat on the options list so it’s impossible to slide long items into the car. On three-door models, the front seats slide back to their original position when you’ve tilted and pushed them forward to let passengers into the back of the car.
Toyota Aygo boot space
The boot is bigger than it was in the old Aygo – up 29 litres to 168 litres with the seats upright. However, that’s some way behind the best in the class. It’s made worse by the fact that there’s quite a drop from the sill to the floor of the boot.
Folded, the rear seats create a large step. This makes sliding long items into the boot an awkward procedure.
The Aygo's boot space looks a little small compared with the best cars in the class. For example, a Volkswagen Up’s boot is 251 litres, and the Hyundai i10's, one litre larger.
