Having had major issues with my 56 plate Ford Fiesta, I decided it was time to change it. Now, my main option really was a Toyota seeing as a lot of the imemdiate family have them and a family member works for a big Toyota dealership!
After having had to fork out a small fortune on the Fiesta over the previous 12 months, a Yaris was a bit too out of my price league so I plumped for the Aygo. We already have an Auris in the household which is used for long journeys and my car is usually only used to get me to and from work (25 miles per day) and half of that time I car share anyway. I ended up buying my Aygo without even looking at it, as I trusted the family member who works for Toyota.
So off I go on the alloted day and pick it up. I was completely amazed when they told me how cheap the tax was on it. So, after picking it up we decided to see just how nippy it was by driving it round and round the city centre. Even though it's only a 1ltr engine it seems far quicker than that, unless you are on an incline. Every 5-6 weeks I end up heading back to see my parents which is a 250ish mile round trip, half of which is motorway. I was expecting the Aygo to struggle abit but I should not heave feared. It comfortably does 70 on the motorway with no issue, and the fuel economy is fantastic.
Inside I find that there is plenty of room,e ven when I have 4 people in there. OK, so the boot space is small but... I never have the car full of passengers when I go shopping, so I have no worries with putting any shopping that doesn't fit in the boot into the back of the car.
OK, so I have the basic version which comes without air con and any flash gadgets but who cares?! It gets me from A to B very comfortably - far more comfy on a long drive than my Fiesta ever was!
All in all I am very happy with it... even my other half is impressed, apart from it beign a bit small for his liking when he drives it. And all of my friends who have been in it love it... they think it's cute and funky, and can;t believe how quick it goes and how nippy it is for just a 1 ltr engine!
Summary: For the cost you pay it's a great little car!
