Toyota Aygo Buyers Guide

When the Toyota Aygo first came out of production, the market for city cars in Europe was just gaining momentum. But the difference with Aygo was that the Japanese automaker intentionally built a car that was not only very affordable to run. The Aygo was also a poster car for efficiency during its time. Nowadays, a lot of other city cars and superminis have surpassed the Aygo’s top capabalities. In addition, newer models have also deemed the Aygo cheap and impractical for certain uses. But Aygo remains one of the top choices for city cars because of its green credentials and adequate engine.

Pros

Aygo is only available in one engine choice: the 1-litre VVTi petrol engine with 67bhp. The 2005 models achieved at most 62.8mpg for the manual gearbox, but 2012 models come at 65.7mpg with CO2 emissions at 99g/km. Gearbox choices are manual and semi-automatic. Aygo feels lightweight when driven around town. Body roll is minimal even at high speeds, and the car benefits from a responsive steering and grip.

The Aygo has a very modern look that gives it a better exterior appeal compared to its rebadged counterparts, the Peugeot 107 and the Citroen C1. The shell is also made of 50% steel. In an attempt to meld functionality with minimalism, Toyota has done a clean job at turning the rear windows into a hatch. Inside the car, Aygo delivers great visibility for drivers and passengers with its elevated seating. Its dash is also minimally equipped, but the trim is appealing.

Cons

Although the engine delivers an impressive mpg rate, the three-cylinder petrol may produce a thrum that makes the Aygo a no-go for out-of-town drives. The steering may also be a bit slow initially, and the car feels hard over rough surfaces.

While Aygo has highly reliable safety features, their addition greatly affects the size of the cabin, reducing the space on the rear seating. Passenger room is very minimal, making the Aygo not the best choice for a small family car. Practicality is another issue. Aygo does not have a glovebox, and its boot is very minimal. In addition, the lip is also set high, which may make loading and unloading difficult to accomplish.

Aygo buyers should not expect a lot when it comes to the interior. Although the styling fits the car’s character well, the sparseness may leave owners feeling a bit on the cheap side. Despite this, buyers may also decry the car’s initial price, which is too high for its specs. Compared to other city cars which have better features, the Aygo’s price at higher trim levels make it a poor competitor in the segment.

At first sight, the Toyota Aygo may draw a lot of new fans because of its cute look that just hits the right notes. Buyers may even marvel at the very low running costs and the highly efficient engine of the Aygo. But its cheap feel and the relatively high initial price may just leave fans of the car looking for other options in the segment.

Toyota Aygo

                In the year 2005, Toyota Aygo was manufactured by Toyota for the European market as a three door hatchback and a five door hatchback. The Aygo is a city car that is assembled at the Toyota Peugeot Citroën Automobile Czech joint venture located at Kolin in Czech Republic and was named as such to symbolize freedom.

                The idea of the development of Aygo began when Fujio Cho, president of Toyota, and Jean Martin Folz, president of PSA Peugeot Citroën, decided to create a small car and share the costs associated with its development. This joint project came to be called the B Zero and it is related to the Citroën C1 and to the Peugeot 107.

                Several versions of the Toyota Aygo was available in the United Kingdom. The basic model, the Aygo, has two airbags and an ABS. Other versions include the Aygo Plus, Aygo Black, Aygo Platinum, Aygo Blue, Aygo Ice, Aygo Sport, and Aygo Go!, whose main difference are their interior design and additional features.

                The Aygo was redesigned in the year 2009 at the same time that the Citroën C1 and the Peugeot 107 were recreated. Changes include improvements in the rear light and the front bumper, and another redesign was done in 2012 by Toyota Europe.
