The improved Toyota Aygo is asserting itself in the rejuvenated city car sector. Jonathan Crouch reports
The improved second generation version of Toyota's Aygo should prove to be a stronger offering for the Japanese maker in the growing citycar sector. To keep its appeal current, the brand has delivered a smarter look inside and out, while enhancing refinement and efficiency. Plus customers have the option of the company's 'Safety Sense' radar-driven safety package. Other strong selling points include a neat connected touch screen system, plus as before, the ease with which this model can be personalised will attract younger buyers. In addition, as ever, there are minuscule running costs too.
So, what makes a car feel 'fun'? Sprightly handling? Cheeky looks? Clever marketing? And can an urban runabout really qualify for purchase on those grounds? With this model, the second generation Toyota Aygo, we're told that it can. You might think you know this car but if you haven't tried this MK2 version, launched here in the Summer of 2014, then you probably don't. Yes, it shares many of its mechanicals with the original design. No, it's not the same. Let's start with the fundamental thing that hasn't changed. As before, this design has been produced as part of a joint Toyota/PSA Group venture that's also brought us French alternatives sharing most of this car's important bits - namely Peugeot's 108 and Citroen's C1. That was also the case with the first generation Aygo, but that car didn't make much attempt to differentiate itself. This one's very different. It's not only the look that's unique but also the very specific way you can personalise it to suit almost any kind of taste or preference.
The engine is still the same 1.0-litre three cylinder petrol unit but Toyota claims to have given it better torque delivery at low speeds - and its output is slightly up to 71bhp. Cabin refinement has been improved too. Acceleration from rest to 62mph can be accomplished in 13.8 seconds, and top speed is 100mph. Otherwise, it's as you were. This car is supposed to be 'fun to drive'. But just how much 'fun' is it really possible to have in a car with just 71 braked horses beneath its bonnet? Actually, a surprising amount. For a start, the 998cc petrol unit sounds playful, its normally aspirated note filling the cabin with a characterful three cylinder thrum. True, the long first and second gear ratios mean you'll have to rev it quite hard for meaningful progress but there's plenty of performance for town trips. You can get a self-shifting 'x-shift' gearbox as an option (we hesitate to call it an 'automatic'). Actually, it's what the engineers call an 'automated manual' gearbox that can be used in fully automatic mode, or with manual gear selection using paddle shifts or the shift lever itself. Could you comfortably venture further afield in this car? Potentially yes. Both wind and road noise have been more effectively suppressed at typical A-road speeds to make that more possible and you certainly notice the difference on the motorway. There doesn't though, seem to have been much effort put into isolating the engine note. If anything, that's been emphasised as Toyota believes it contributes to this car's whole 'fun' ethos.
This revised Aygo now has a fresher look, with its frontal "X" motif now transformed from a two-dimensional graphic into a more powerful, three-dimensional architectural element. The lower section of the X frames the front grille, while black, gloss black or silver ornamentation beneath the lights aims to accentuate the car's width. This update also includes redesigned headlight units with integral daytime running lights and there are now LED light guides at the rear and revised tail lamp clusters. Inside, there are updated instrument graphics and fresh fabrics. As before, the cabin features a trapezoidal-shaped centre console, with this design theme reflected in details such as the air vents, door trims and gear shift surround. The console supports a wide dashboard with a matt, anti-glare finish, set between slim A-pillars. The instrumentation features a meter made of up concentric rings which are permanently lit. It incorporates an easy-to-read central multi-information display. The very compact five-door bodystyle limits rear seat accmmodation, but it's fine by class standards. The boot's still pretty small though, 186-litres in size.
Prices range from just under £10,000 to around £15,000 and there's a £500 premium if you want to go from the three-door to the five-door bodystyle. The revised trim range starts at 'x', then rises through 'x-play' and 'x-press' to 'x-plore', 'x-cite' and 'x-clusiv'. Avoid entry-level trim and, for £375 more, you'll be offered the option of adding in the 'Toyota Safety Sense' package of active safety features, including a Pre-Collision System, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Alert. Dealers expect the 'x-press' and 'x-plore' variants to be especially popular, these derivatives making good use of this second generaion Aygo model's scope for personalisation. The 'x-press' sports a bright red front bumper, with further red trim on the roof, the side sills and the rear diffuser. The reason that variants like this are so easy for Toyota to create is that this MK2 model Aygo has been designed to feature clip-on interior and exterior panels that can be swapped at will. Inside, the instrument panel, centre console, air vent, shift knob and gear lever surround all feature sections that can easily be changed. To try to keep things easier for the customer and to offer better value, Toyota has also created a range of exterior and interior styling packs, rather than forcing people to select piece-by-piece customisation. If you haven't yet tried this current generation model, you'll also be impressed by Toyota's x-touch multimedia system - a fully integrated seven-inch touch screen that features on most models. It incorporates a rear view camera as standard and uses a five-function main menu, giving easy control of audio, phone, connectivity, vehicle and journey information functions. Customers will also be able to access a wide choice of navigation and social media applications. You'll need to make sure your smartphone has a generous data plan if you're going to get the best of it.
Toyota's award-winning 998cc three-cylinder, 12-valve DOHC engine now meets Euro 6.2 emissions standards. Revisions have achieved a better balance of power and fuel efficiency, thanks to a new dual fuel injector system, a higher compression ratio, new low-friction components and a cooled exhaust gas recirculation system. You'll be expecting very low running costs here - and by and large, you'll get them. Expect 72.4mpg on the combined cycle. Couple that economy with a 35-litre fuel tank and you have a vehicle with a range of over 530 miles, which given typically small citycar annual mileages will probably mean you won't get on first name terms with the staff at your local filling station. CO2 emissions meanwhile, are rated at well under 100g/km. What else? Well there's no diesel option of course. I say 'of course' because the figures show that 90% of citycar buyers historically haven't wanted to pay the premium for fuelling from the black pump and there seems no prospect of that attitude changing very soon. And residual values? Well, they may not be quite as strong as those commanded by a Volkswagen up! but once you've had a chat with your friendly Toyota dealer, you'll probably end up paying less for an Aygo, which will sort that out anyway. And depreciation on this car has traditionally been slightly less than is the case with its Peugeot and Citroen design stablemates. Insurance is rated at group 3E.
At first glance, it would be entirely understandable if you felt that this Aygo's approach prioritised style over substance. The wheelbase is still the same as the first generation model launched more than a decade back, you still find a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine beneath the bonnet and the basic handling dynamics are little changed. Even the interior accommodation is much the same. Despite all of that though, there's no doubt that the updates that have created this improved second generation Aygo really bring it into contention in this segment. The cabin now feels more modern, the clever x-touch infotainment system is a must-have and it's hard to think of a bolder, more progressive-looking citycar for sale at any price. In short, this once conservative model now has real presence and desirability. From being forgettable, this car is now genuinely likeable - and there's a world of difference between those two attributes. You could imagine caring about this Toyota - feeling a genuine sense of pride in ownership. If that was Toyota's aim, then the mission's been accomplished.
BY ANDY ENRIGHT
It seems to have been around forever, but Toyota's Aygo is still one of the smartest used citycar buys. We're concentrating here on the last of the first generation models, built between 2012 and 2014. If you're in the market for a small and inexpensive runabout but don't want something unsafe, unreliable or unattractive, the Aygo makes a seriously strong case for your custom.
(3/5dr hatchback 1.0 petrol [Aygo, Aygo+, Fire, Ice])
If you had to bet who Toyota would partner up with to bring a citycar to market, Peugeot and Citroen might not have been at the top of your list. Still, the tie-up has worked a treat, with the Toyota Aygo racking up some huge global sales; certainly more in total terms than the Citroen C1 and the Peugeot 107. The partnership was such a success that in 2014, the three companies renewed the deal with a trio of brand new city cars. By that time, the Aygo had been on sale since 2005. If the usual city car life span had been observed, it would have been replaced sometime around 2011, when the Volkswagen Group launched a new offensive in this market with the VW up!, the Skoda Citigo and the SEAT Mii. Toyota was forced to respond to this triple threat which looked set to sink the Aygo without trace and in 2012, the Aygo was subtly restyled and efficiency was also improved. Toyota followed this up with Fire and Ice editions that helped slow the Aygo's declining sales before being replaced by an all-new car in 2014.
This car may have been around since 2005, but it still looks reasonably fresh. As ever, the wheel-at-each corner proportions look just right and the facelifted front end isn't trying too hard either. Compared to the original first generation Aygo design, this later MK1 model gets a wider front bumper, with integrated foglights at each corner and a big trapezoidal air intake. Optional LED daytime running lights set into the lower edge of the grille add further emphasis to the look. The upper front grille in this lightly improved model was also rendered more slender, while early MK1 Aygo owners might also spot a revised bonnet, dark-tinted rear privacy glass for both three and five-door versions and smarter 14-inch wheel trims. It all looks less cutesy than original versions of this design and a little more grown-up. There's little change at the rear though, where (as before) an opening glass panel replaces a conventional tailgate. With this facelifted model, Toyota had listened to feedback from existing Aygo owners and as a consequence, changed the opening angle of the rear parcel shelf to offer better access to the load space. Not much could be done about the basic design of the rear end though, with its use of an opening glass panel rather than a conventional hatch. The disadvantage of that is that because the panel doesn't cut into the bumper, there's quite a high lip over which you've to lift in your shopping (the VW up! suffers from the same thing for the same reason). Still, once you have your packages in place, there's 139-litres of space. That's a bit less than some rivals offer, but given that in cars like this one, the rear bench is rarely used and so can be pushed down (in this case to reveal up to 751-litres of space), that shouldn't be an issue for most owners. If you need more than that for your weekly shop, it might well be time to change your lifestyle rather than your car. For those with a pathological inability to pack light, Toyota offered original buyers of this model an aluminium roof rack tailor-made for it. With a quick attachment facility and aerodynamic bars, it offers a little extra versatility that you might not expect to get in a citycar. Of more importance perhaps, is this Toyota's people-carrying potential. We're used to space-efficient citycar designs these days, but back in 2005 when this model was first launched, it really was astonishing just how much space the designers had managed to cram into a vehicle that remained only 3.43m long and 1.63m wide, thanks to the wheel-at-each-corner design. Even though the length of this facelifted version increased by 15mm thanks to its various exterior tweaks, it still remained shorter than a MINI. Despite that, two adults can sit reasonably comfortably on the back seat as long as they're not too long-legged. Up front, Toyota took the opportunity to improve the look and feel of the fixtures and fittings in this facelifted MK1 Aygo, adding a smarter dark grey finish for the upper and lower dashboard sections, plus a redesigned steering wheel finished with leather trim. This featured paddle controls on the steering column for models using the Multimode automated manual transmission. The wheel itself still wouldn't adjust for reach though - only for rake. The cabin's practical - there are cup holders and massive storage bins - and the fascia design of this Toyota continued to be smart and refreshingly non-boring thanks to ring surrounds of the speedometer and air vents finished in grey, orange or black. The nice touches continued too, like the intriguing back-lit translucent panel for the heating and ventilation, plus front door speaker surrounds that original buyers could specify in either silver or orange.

The Aygo has forged an admirable reliability record and you certainly shouldn't get any serious issues with the kind of 2012-2014 model we're looking at here. By the time this version arrived, the design had, after all, been in production since 2005, with all major issues long since ironed out. The 1.0-litre engine just runs and runs, both manual and automatic gearboxes are tough units, plus the clutches last well, as do tyres and brakes. There's really very little to complain about. Statistically, back in 2012, this was the UK's 4th most reliable car - according to Warranty Direct.
(approx based on a 2012 Aygo+ 1.0) Aygo spares are competitively priced and it's not unknown for Citroen C1 and Peugeot 107 owners to make a visit to their Toyota dealers to take advantage of this fact - these two French contenders being re-badged versions of the same design. A starter motor costs around £110 and brake pads are £30 a set.
If you've got to spend a significant amount of time in a car, whether it involves sitting in traffic on the way to work, picking up the kids from school or just getting around the shops, you're not going to want to do that in something that's poor to drive. We've seen companies like Perodua and Proton try to sell us real lowest common denominator stuff in the past and by and large, we just weren't interested. Ideally, we all want something that's easy to punt about but which feels as if it's had a bit of development budget thrown at it. In other words, we want something like a Toyota Aygo. First impressions are promising. You sit fairly high in the car and all-round visibility is good with only the thick C-pillars offering a blind spot. The driving position is good, the mirrors are clear and all of the controls are within reach. The steering wheel adjusts for rake, with the speedo binnacle moving with the column. Pop the key in, fire up the ignition and the 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine settles back to a modest background thrum. Toyota reckons this is still one of the world's lightest production engines and the whole car weighs in at just 800kg, which means that the 67bhp you have available to you doesn't feel as underwhelming as it looks on paper. The spec sheet will tell you that this car will reach a top speed of 98mph and get to 60mph from standstill in 14.2s. What it won't tell you is how nippy the Aygo feels off the line, how it can change direction so quickly and how easy it is to park. It genuinely does feel idiot-proof and if you specify it with the optional MultiMode semi-automatic transmission, you won't even have to worry about a clutch pedal. The standard five-speed manual 'box isn't bad, with a longish throw from the long stick but a positive feel. If I was schlepping through city traffic every day, I'd look for a car with the MMT transmission fitted and give my left leg a rest. It's not actually a conventional automatic, instead being a manual 'box with an electronic gearchange actuator, and like most of these systems, you can help its smoothness by lifting the throttle a little as it changes gear. Alternatively you can use the paddles to change up and down the gearbox. The engine can be a little intrusive when worked hard, but in most scenarios it's not too vocal and the noise it makes is a good deal more characterful than that of many of its rivals. It's quieter than it used to be due to extra insulation added under the bonnet and adjustments made to the clutch system to reduce noise and vibration. There must be something fundamentally right about a small capacity three-cylinder engine because almost every citycar worth its salt is now adopting this layout. It's in town that this Toyota excels. The turning circle is just 4.73m, so throwing a sneaky U-turn to bag a parking spot is simplicity itself. It also means you can nudge into the very meanest parking spaces. The modest width of the Aygo also means that you don't get those heart-stopping moments when negotiating city width restrictions. The electrically assisted steering offers a lot of assistance at low speeds, which takes the effort out of twirling your way into a parallel park.
Later versions of the first generation Toyota Aygo did their best to fight the growing sophistication of citycar rivals, but without an all-new model it was always a fight the Japanese brand was always destined to lose. That model arrived in 2014 and many may wonder what the justification might be in buying a later version of the older outdated car. The answer is because it's cheap and it's reliable. No, it's not the last word in sophistication, but if you want a small city runabout that feels like it's been well engineered but don't want to pay through the nose, later versions of the MK1 Aygo still make a great deal of sense. Get the right deal on one and we'd wager you'd be very satisfied.
Toyota's improved second generation Aygo offers an extra bit of spice for city-dwellers. June Neary checks it out
Just how much do you really need to spend on a car? Around £10,000 sounds about right to me - the starting price for the second generation version of Toyota's citycar, the Aygo. Pronounce it 'Eye-Go', the Toyota man told me, but I still kept calling it 'A-go' during my time with the car. Whatever it's called, it's a clever little thing and surprisingly stylish for the money. Women like me have contributed massively to Toyota's bottom line in recent years by purchasing chic little Yaris superminis by the bucketload and this car is cut from the same kind of cloth. My colleagues told me that it was Toyota's version of the same design which has spawned Citroen's C1 and Peugeot's 108 but having seen those two cars, I think the revised version of this Toyota, though it can be a tad more expensive, is a more attractive bet than either. If you want to spend more, there's also the Toyota iQ to consider, a trendier take on the city car theme, but the Aygo looks plenty trendy enough for me.
I liked the fact that the front and rear overhangs have been kept short so as to maximise interior space and make parking simple. This revised Aygo now has a fresher look, with its frontal "X" motif now transformed from a two-dimensional graphic into a more powerful, three-dimensional architectural element. Inside, there's a trapezoidal-shaped centre console, with this design theme reflected in details such as the air vents, door trims and gear shift surround. The console supports a wide dashboard with a matt, anti-glare finish, set between slim A-pillars. The instrumentation features a meter made of up concentric rings which are permanently lit. It incorporates an easy-to-read central multi-information display. It's not a large interior of course: you wouldn't expect a citycar to offer that - but there are five wide-opening doors and the kids I transported seemed quite happy in the rear. I also managed a full Tesco shop in the compact 186-litre boot.
The Aygo is a citycar first and foremost, reflected in a sprint to 60mph that takes around 14 seconds. The engine is still the same 1.0-litre three cylinder petrol unit but Toyota claims to have given it better torque delivery at low speeds - and its output is slightly up to 71bhp. The combined economy figure is 68.8mpg and emissions are pegged at a laudable 93g/km. These figures are helped by the fact that the 1.0-litre is billed as one of the world's lightest production engines. The five-speed manual transmission I tried is the default choice, but Toyota's x-shift semi-auto transmission is also available as an option, offering clutchless gear changing for those who want to take the drag out of city driving. Effort is further removed by the fitment of electrically assisted power steering, making light work of turning the Aygo about face on a sixpence. I liked the fact that the steering column is adjustable for both reach and rake. Coupled with plenty of driver's seat travel and ample headroom, it all meant that I had no problem getting comfortable behind the wheel of the Aygo. Sitting behind a tall driver is another issue altogether and rear space is a little pinched with the front seat at the back of its travel. That's perhaps forgivable, as there is only so much that can be done within the strictures of such a limited wheelbase.
Prices, as I said, start at around £10,000, but of course that's just the starting point if you want to individualise your car. Toyota makes much of the latest Aygo's scope for personalisation. Buyers in this sector want to be able to quickly, cheaply and effectively differentiate their cars so they don't look like everybody else's. MINI was the first company to get on board this trend and Citroen quickly followed. Now the Japanese are playing catch-up, with Nissan's Juke offering clip-on interior panels that can be swapped at will. This Aygo follows this concept, with instrument panel, centre console, air vent, shift knob and gear lever surround sections that can easily be changed. Even the X-shaped front grille, rear bumper insert, front bumper and alloy wheels can all be specified to suit. To try to keep things easier for the customer and to offer better value, Toyota has also created a range of exterior and interior styling packs, rather than forcing people to select piece-by-piece customisation.
This car makes the necessity of being urban-bound into less of a chore. You could use it for longer distances but you probably won't want to. It's more at home in the city. Sexy in the city in fact? You could say that if you want to.
