Toyota Aygo buying guide

The Toyota Aygo is arguably one of the most eye-catching small cars on sale, thanks to a bold exterior design inspired by Japanese comic books. Underneath, however, it’s a more global story – the Aygo shares mechanical parts with the Peugeot 108 and Citroen C1.

What Toyota Aygo trim levels are there?

Glad you asked. Matching the ‘x’ across its face, the Aygo’s trim levels are all on the ‘x’ theme. Entry-level cars are simply called x, then you get x-play, x-trend and x-clusiv – plus several special editions.

The x trim comes with LED daytime running lights, hill-start assist and a radio with an AUX connection.

Next up is x-play, with the most noticeable difference inside being a touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and digital radio. There’s also air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and even a reversing camera.

Aygo x-trend versions come with alloy wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights and tinted windows. Top-spec x-clusiv features two-tone paint and extra safety assistance (autonomous emergency braking and lane-departure alert). The x-cite comes in orange and black paint, while the JBL Edition comes in black and orange – and also gets an upgraded stereo. Got it?

The 2022-on Toyota Aygo X comes in Pure, Edge, Exclusive and Limited Edition trim levels.

Toyota Aygo interior and technology

The first-generation Aygo’s interior felt like it had been crafted out of the plastic you get in a chocolate selection box. Its replacement is still built to a budget, but it feels much more sturdy.

Models with the ‘x-touch’ touchscreen feel a lot more modern inside, because they include the latest smartphone connectivity systems. The leather-wrapped steering wheel adds a little premium-ness to an area that you’ll touch all the time, while top-spec cars also get part-leather seat upholstery. Meanwhile, having air conditioning helps keep the car clear and cool.

Most versions get grey interior accents, which help stop the car feeling too drab inside. The jazziest trims are the special editions – the x-cite gets vivid orange accents that’ll brighten your journeys.

As we’ve mentioned, the Aygo is a small car and does come with practicality considerations. The boot is a bit smaller than what you get in the Volkswagen Up or Hyundai i10, but you might argue that neither of those cars come with the visual clout that the Aygo does. You don’t get a touchscreen in the VW, either.

Toyota Aygo engine range explained

Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i petrol

A small car only needs a small engine. The 1.0-litre petrol is well-suited to life under the Aygo’s stubby bonnet, feeling peppy around town and achieving excellent fuel economy. Toyota claims over 55mpg, and you could get even more at a steady speed. In terms of fuel bills, few petrol cars are going to be cheaper to run than the Aygo.

The Aygo was developed primarily for darting around town, but it will take faster roads in its stride too. You’ll just have to remember that you don’t have a vast amount of power in reserve. If you’re going to be spending your life on the motorway, more powerful cars might be more refined.

If you’re regularly going to be stuck in busy traffic on arterial routes, the automatic Aygo x-shift will change gears for you and save your clutch foot. It is a little slower than the manual, so the latter is a better choice for faster roads.

Toyota Aygo FAQs

There have been three generations of Toyota Aygo. All are small hatchbacks, and here we’ll focus primarily on the second-generation car, produced from 2014-2022. It’s available with three or five doors, comes in a range of trim levels and has a small petrol engine. In 2022, the Aygo was replaced by the Aygo X, a new five-door version that brings a tiny bit of SUV style without losing any of the Aygo’s defining features.

Fans of cosy spaces will love the Aygo, because it really doesn’t take up much space on the road. It’s less than 3.5m long and a bit narrower than many other cars – you won’t need to breathe in when you go through a width restrictor. Its small size makes it super easy to park, too.

The Aygo might leave you asking why other cars are so big. There’s plenty of space in the front seats, while four adults can squeeze into it in relative comfort – and access is easy on five-door Aygos. The boot space isn’t enormous, as is to be expected for such a compact car, so you’ll need to become a master of packing light.

That’s easy to answer, because the 2014-2022 Toyota Aygo only comes with one engine. It’s a 1.0-litre petrol engine with 72hp, but there’s a choice of manual or automatic gearboxes.

Toyota Aygos come with four seats, like a few of its city car rivals. That’s no bad thing as you would really struggle to fit three adults side-by-side in the rear of an Aygo. If you really need five seats in a car of this size, check out the Kia Picanto.

The Toyota Aygo is a simple but well-built car, which are good signs for its reliability. Toyota is known for its impressive dependability, and the brand offers additional warranty cover if you have your car serviced at a main dealer.

If you want a cheeky, cheap-to-run car that’s easy to park and surprisingly well equipped, the Toyota Aygo is a very suitable offering. It’s cheap to buy, as well, with many used Aygos available from under £150 per month.
