The Toyota Aygo is the Toyota version of the C1 and 107 luckily Toyota make them all. Great styling brilliant driving position loads of space for 2 even tall drivers will find it OK. 61MPG and £20 a year road tax group 1 insureance make it a small car winner. In short they are the best small car you can buy from around £3995.00.

While ultra-low running costs are the focus of the Aygo’s talents, this is no one-trick pony. Despite its affordability, the baby Toyota is capable on long journeys and, while it’s hardly luxuriously appointed, it’s comfortable enough. The car is also proving to be generally reliable, too, although some of the earlier Aygos now sport cabins which are looking tatty. But you’ll enjoy driving the Aygo so much that you won’t care; that 1.0-litre engine serves up a lot more fun than you’d imagine.

Used Toyota Aygo Cars For Sale Cheltenham, Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Stroud, Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

The Toyota Aygo was co-developed with the Citroen C1 and the Peugeot 107. It boasts the same well-proportioned styling and easy-to-use nature. All the controls are light and the small three-cylinder engine not only sounds good but it also boasts some extremely low running costs. As with most cars of this size, the Aygo struggles to deliver in the practicality stakes and refinement at motorway speeds certainly needs some work.

Our choice: Toyota Aygo Fire 1.0

Styling:
3.9 

A wheel-at-each-corner design means the Aygo appears nicely proportioned and funky in a way only a well-designed budget car can be. A facelift in 2012 added sharper headlights and some LED daytime running lights to help keep things fresh. With unusual heater controls, a user-friendly stereo and funky speedometer, the interiordesign is fresh and attractive. MP3 players can be plugged into the stereo and the translucent section glows orange at night.

Driving:
3.1
  

The Toyota is available only with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine, which produces 68bhp. The engine itself is full of character, with a thrumming exhaust and willingness to rev all the way up to the redline. All the controls are light and easy to use, including the clutch and the accurate gearbox. Acceleration from 0-62mph in 14.2 seconds means it's fine for town driving but at higher speeds you'll notice the Aygo starts struggling. Motorway journeys are a bit of a nuisance, with lots of wind and road noise making its way into the cabin. The supple ride means you'll at least be comfortable.

Reliability:
3.5 
 

Euro NCAP has never crash tested the Toyota Aygo but it would be awarded the same four-star rating as the Citroen C1. That's not too bad for a budget city-car but buyers can find models offering a five-star rating if they look hard enough. With the Aygo developed by Toyota, it has proven to be very reliable in the time it has been on sale.

Practicality:
2.8
 

The Aygo has a major weak spot: boot space. To save money, the tailgate is simply a piece of glass, and this leaves you with a high load sill. Capacity is only 139 litres, though all models feature a split-folding rear seat. Rear passenger space is adequate. It's strictly a four-seater though, and the hinged rear windows do not impress. They are fiddly to use and offer little ventilation. Up front, the driving position is good, and the cabin feels bigger than you would expect.

Running costs:
2.7
 
 

As for running costs, they're ultra-low; insurance is in the lowest group for most models, 10,000-mile servicing is inexpensive and fuel economy will definitely prove to be a plus point at the pumps. The 2012 facelift brought with it a reduction in CO2 emissions to 99g/km, which makes this car road tax-free while fuel economy improves to 65.6mpg. The automatic versions aren't quite as efficient but they do come close.
