Expert Rating

Toyota Aygo (2014 to 2022)

Not a current model


    The Toyota Aygo was a small city-car class hatchback, which was available with either a conventional roof or a full-length canvas sunroof. This model was the second-generation Aygo, which was launched in 2014 and updated in 2018. It was discontinued in early 2022 to be replaced by the slightly larger Toyota Aygo X.

    The Aygo was 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, all three cars received almost identical reviews and scores throughout their lives.

    The Toyota Aygo 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 was praised for its bold front-end styling and low running costs, but criticised for a lack of refinement compared to newer rivals.

    In its 2021 owners’ survey, What Car? rated the Toyota Aygo equal first (alongside the Skoda Citigo) in its list of the most reliable small cars.

    As of July 2022, the Toyota Aygo holds an Expert Rating of 58%, based on 20 reviews published by British media sources.
