Toyota Aygo: prices, testing, technical data, photos and news

The Aygo is the access to the Toyota range. This supermini segment, with a length of 3.46 meters, is one of the most compact vehicles on the market, fighting with rivals such as the Renault Twingo or the Volkswagen Up.

The second generation of the Aygo is developed again under an agreement with PSA

The second generation of the Toyota Aygo is developed and built, again in collaboration with PSA, which has its own models – 108 Peugeot and Citroen C1 – identical in mechanical terms, differing from one another only through personal aesthetics of each one of them.
Its casual and modern look is complemented by a front with essential LEDs for daytime lighting and moldings in contrast colour forming an X.

A nice, practical interior

The cockpit of the Aygo stands out for its simplicity. It is designed to be practical, while maintaining an attractive and sympathetic image to not clash with the outside appearance. The equipment is at the height of their rivals, since the Aygo can be mounted, depending on the finish, navigation system, starter button, climate control and leather seats.

Accommodating up to 4 occupants, the measures of the cockpit are correct without being glitzy. The trunk, with 168 liters, offers somewhat sparse, but in the middle of a segment intended for short trips, not for big trips. The rear windows cannot be opened, but they have a folding type Compass System.

An engine and two gearboxes

The Toyota Aygo is available with a single gasoline engine that we tested in the touchdown. We talked about the already-known within the brand cylinder 69 BHP and 95 NM 1.0. Their French brothers offered another more powerful option, a 1.2 also three cylinders but with 82 HP, an option not available in the Japanese model.

In addition to the traditional 5-speed manual gearbox, the Aygo is available with a robotic, also 5 relations, called x-shift, which includes in addition cam in the back of the steering wheel gearbox. With this gearbox the Aygo dispenses with the clutch, although in certain circumstances is a slow and rough.

The small propeller approves good consumption figures, with 4.1 litres / 100 km in mixed cycle, equivalent to 95 g / km C02 emissions. Benefits, on the other hand, are very fair, with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h than 14 seconds and a top speed that barely exceeds the 160 km/h.
