Parkers overall rating: 3.9 out of 5 3.9
  • Four-star Euro NCAP rating with Safety Sense pack
  • Some standard-fit safety equipment
  • Optional emergency braking and lane-keeping

The Toyota Aygo was given four stars by the experts at Euro NCAP in 2014, but it was re-assessed at the end of 2017. With the Toyota Safety Sense package it maintains that four-star score, but without it the Aygo drops to three stars.

It’s also packed with six airbags (front, side and curtain), seatbelt pretensioners and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

The back seat is equipped with two Isofix child seat mounting points, while rear doors on five-door versions have child locks too.

Safety tech comes as standard

Keeping you safe while driving are ABS, emergency braking assist, hill-hold function and electronic vehicle stability control.

Helping keep your eyes on the road, x-play models upwards have Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel-mounted controls for the phone and stereo, while x-press models and higher come with a reversing camera.

Ensuring you’re visible night or day, LED day running lights are fitted to all models, as are projector beam headlights with an LED band at their lower edge. Large, bold tail lamps are set high up in the rear bodywork to ensure you’re seen clearly despite being in a small car.

Toyota Safety Sense added

A laser-controlled system that spots imminent collisions and primes the brakes was added in 2015 – including autonomous emergency braking and lane departure warning.

That’s a handy suite of safety systems for city driving, and is optional on all Aygo models apart from X.

  • Good space for adults sitting in the front
  • Reasonable provision for those in the back
  • Boot is small unless rear seats are folded

There’s a good amount of room all round actually, more than you would expect given the Aygo’s pint-sized proportions. Leg space is a bit cramped in the rear though. The interior is also peppered with various cubbies and storage areas, including a decently-sized glove box and door bins.

Sockets for the 12V electrical supply and USB dock are conveniently located and models fitted with the x-touch infotainment screen are simple to navigate with clear, modern graphics and fast-responding inputs from fingertips.

Will it fit in my garage?

Although it’s a small car with fine all-round visibility the reversing camera fitted to many Aygos makes it supremely easy to park, useful in the absence of sacrificial rubbing strips on the car’s extremities.

Put it this way - if you have trouble parking a car this size then it might be time to invest in some extra training. 

Will my luggage fit in it?

If you’re buying an Aygo for its boot then prepare to be disappointed – like all boxy city cars this Toyota prioritises interior passenger space. It’s not class-leading but it is quite a useful size, with 168 litres on offer to store a medium-sized food shop or weekend baggage for two.

Fold the rear seats down if you plan to go away for longer or need to transport anything larger, then you get a much more practical 812 litres of space. It’s worth noting that all Aygos except the entry-level x versions have a 50:50 split rear seat back; the x makes do with a single-piece folding bench.

Euro NCAP Rating – 3 stars

The Toyota Aygo was tested by Euro NCAP in 2017 and was awarded a 3 star overall rating. This overall rating is calculated from the following individual ratings:

3 star rating
Test 2017
Individual safety ratings
Adult Occupant: 74%
Child Occupant: 63%
Pedestrian: 64%
Safety Assist: 24%

Euro NCAP provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. The safety ratings are determined from a series of vehicle tests, designed and carried out by Euro NCAP. These tests represent, in a simplified way, important real life accident scenarios that could result in injured or killed car occupants or other road users.
