Which used Toyota Aygo hatchback should I buy?
Only one engine is offered with the Aygo: a three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol. Pull away from standstill and it suffers a prolonged flat spot and absence of power until 4000rpm, after which it is more eager. As a result, it has to be worked hard to make decent progress and you'll often need to change down a gear – especially on steep hills – to avoid losing speed.
Entry-level X models come with LED daytime running lights, USB and aux connections, as well as electric front windows.
Our pick, X-Play, adds 15in steel wheels, a leather multifunction steering wheel and gearlever, two extra speakers (four in total), Bluetooth, air-con and a rev counter. This is the one we’d go for, and spending a little extra on Toyota's touchscreen infotainment system is worth it.
The X-clusiv trim adds automatic headlights, climate control and chrome detailing outside. Unless these features are paramount, we’d look further down the range.
X-clusiv 2 adds leather to the interior, lots of kit and a roll-back sunroof, but we don't think it's worth the extra cash.
