Summary:

Cute econobox

Faults:

This was a rental that we drove around the country for 2 weeks straight.

No service issues were encountered during the trip.

General Comments:

The performance of this car is at par with a lawnmower, as is employs a 1.0 litre 3 cylinder engine. It is almost impossible to pass other vehicles even on a deserted highway. When you go up a hill, you must put the car in first gear or you will start rolling backwards.

Interior room is great in the front, and a little cramped up in the back. Cargo room is almost non-existant due to the minuscule size of the vehicle.

The rear seats do fold if you have no passengers, so there is plenty of room in that arrangement.

Fuel mileage is quite impressive, as we averaged approx. 600k with a full tank. The tank is only 35 litres!

Overall, I would recommend this car if you are thinking of buying one for basic transportation purposes only. It is a Toyota, so the reliability should be on par with the best.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I would have doubts about its reliabilty because the Peugeot 107 and the Citreon C1 are identical to the Aygo, so that means it's not really a Toyota, as Toyota has joined Citreon and Peugeot on this one, using a lot of their parts.

The Aygo is a Toyota design. As I understand it Citroen and Peugeot joined in the manufacture only. Check the Aygo factory web page for some interesting info on the Aygo. The diesel variation provides considerably more torque and incredible economy. The diesel is however a French engine.

All mechanical and most electrical parts in the C1 and 107 are Toyota, some body panels are different, that's it! The cars are all built on the same production line and Toyota build quality standards are applied. Finally, I drive a C1 and if you compare it to other one litre cars its surprisingly lively (you can put that down to Toyota VVTi).
