The Top Gear car review:Toyota Aygo
Final thoughts and pick of the range
If you’re expecting the Aygo’s smallness and cheapness to make it dreary, then you might be surprised to learn it’s quite good fun to drive.
The chassis and steering are far more game than they’ve any right to be in a car with a sub-£10,000 starting price. You can really feel the age of the basic design in the cabin, though, and that, alongside the tiny boot, puts it behind the likes of the Volkswagen Up, Kia Picanto and the Hyundai i10 when it comes to buying a city car.
You also have to watch the price carefully, as once you start ticking the options boxes to get things like the touchscreen or full-length canvas sunroof, the price starts to creep up fast. As long as you keep it cheap, though — don’t go above X-Play spec — the Aygo’s a surprisingly fun and affordable small car.
