Toyota Aygo

(2014 - present)

The Toyota Aygo is a small city-car class hatchback, available with a conventional roof or a full-length canvas sunroof. The current model is the second generation, which was launched in 2014 and updated in 2018. It has been speculated that, when the current model ends production (expected to be in 2021), it will be replaced by an electric model with no petrol-engined version offered.

The Aygo is essentially identical to the Citroën C1 and Peugeot 108, with the three models developed together and built at the same factory in the Czech Republic. Unsurprisingly, it has an almost idential Expert Rating to the Citroën with similar assessments (we haven’t analysed the Peugeot yet).

The Toyota Aygo has received mixed reviews from the UK motoring media, with an overall Expert Rating that falls a long way short of the class-leading Hyundai i10. It has been praised for its bold low running costs, but criticised for a lack of refinement compared to newer rivals.
