Road test: Toyota Aygo

James Batchelor


The Aygo has been around for a while and has cute looks and a respectable badge on its nose. But does a facelift keep it desirable in the city car sector?

What is it?

Like its Peugeot 107 and Citroen C1 siblings, the Toyota Aygo has been around since 2005. That's a long time in the car world so the Japanese firm has given its city car a makeover (along with Peugeot and Citroen with their 107 and C1 models). The new Aygo gets a more chiseled look to the front-end while our test car also had very bright day-time running lights fitted. A tweaked 1.0-litre engine is now better for the environment.
