Ten Second Review

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.

Background

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.

Driving Experience

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.

Design and Build

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 accommodation, but it's fine by class standards. The boot's still pretty small though, 186-litres in size.
