The original Toyota Aygo was a cheeky, innovative city car built down to a price. This is its angrier looking replacement. As before, it’s twinned with co-developed cars from Peugeot and Citroen, the 108 and C1. Both three- and five-door versions are available.

60sec road test
New Aygo trades the old’s cuddly appearance for a face like an angry Space Invader, but follows the same four-seat, three-cylinder formula. Pug and Citroen versions get the choice of a 1.0 or 1.2-litre engine but the Aygo is 1.0-litre or nothing. The interior’s streets ahead of the old one (there’s even a glovebox), and available with a spangly new touchscreen multimedia system. Handling’s a bit more wallowy than the nimble Aygo of old and there’s a bit more road noise than you might hope. Most disappointing though, is that the Aygo doesn’t feel particularly clever or different any more. It’s an average small car, and no more than that.
The one we’d buy
The one we’d avoid like the plague
Top X-Pression trim. It’s a lot of money for a small car.
Rivals to consider
Citroen C1, Fiat 500, Hyundai i10, Peugeot 108, Seat Mii, Skoda Citigo, VW Up
Looks a bit more interesting than the 108, five-year warranty, comes with lots of toys
Less lovable than the old Aygo, only one engine available
