Fuel economy

Petrol engines 51.4 - 61.4 mpg
  • Both gearboxes offer almost identical economy
  • Service every 10,000 miles with fixed-price packages
  • The Toyota Aygo is going to cost you very little

One of the primary reasons for buying a car like the Aygo is often the comparatively minuscule running costs. With low tax (especially on examples registered before April 2017), insurance and repair costs, it’s one of the cheapest forms of four-wheeled motoring around.

Petrol mpg

There's only one engine available in the Aygo, yet claimed fuel economy figures do vary depending on whether you opt for a manual or automatic gearbox. The former has a claimed 53.2-56.4mpg fuel return on the WLTP cycle, with that figure dropping slightly for the latter to 51.3-54.3mpg.

Fuel tank capacity is typically small for this size of car at 35 litres.

Is it eco-friendly?

While there are no electric or hybrid models on offer, the Aygo's fuel-sipping three-cylinder petrol means claimed emissions reach 114-120g/km of CO2 for the manual and up to 118-124g/km for the X-shift automatic.

Is the Toyota Aygo reliable?

Despite being small and light, the Aygo’s build quality is impressive and backed up by a five-year, 100,000-mile warranty. There have been a couple of recalls in the car’s lifespan, the first being for an issue with the steering column and the second relating to problems with the wall thickness of the fuel tank – although this only affected three vehicles.
