Which used Toyota Aygo hatchback should I buy?
Both three and five-door versions are available, but the latter has proved more popular with used buyers. Originally, the Aygo was available with only a 67bhp, 1.0-litre engine, but a 54bhp 1.4-litre diesel was introduced at the beginning of 2006. However, there's was little demand for the new engine and it was dropped from the range in June 2007. As a result they're hard to come by on the used market.
The entry-level Aygo is sparsely equipped, but does include a CD player and two airbags as standard. The Aygo+ model gets ISOFIX child seat fittings, electric front windows, two more airbags, remote central locking and an upgraded stereo. The Sport edition has alloy wheels, but was discontinued in May 2007.
New Black and Blue editions replaced the sport, and included unique paint and alloy wheel options, and could be ordered with extras such as a Bluetooth mobile phone system. The optional semi-automatic gearbox is easy enough to live with once you get used to it.
The Aygo underwent a subtle face-lift in early 2009, with a new front bumper and grille, and revised rear lights.
